Lead-Zinc Mining in Pakistan
Lead - Zinc mineralization of significance are reported from localities in NWFP and Balochistan. An extensive Lead-Zinc-Barite mineralization belt has been discovered in ophiolite Thurst Belt in Las Bela, Balochistan. Mineralization is confined to the upper part of the lower Jurassic Shirinab Formation. Significant localities are Shekran, Rang Laki, Mal Khor, Gunga, Surmai and Dhuddar. Deposits of Surmai, Gunga and Dhuddar have been explored and evaluated. Surmai is a stratabund Mississipi - type deposit. Gunga and Dhuddar lead-zinc deposits are of Sedex type. At Dhuddar, barite is indicative of exhaltive character while sulphide mineralization is of syndiagenetic in nature. Pakistan Mineral Development Corporation (PMDC) and Metallurgical Construction Corporation of China (MCC) have signed an agreement where the later would develop the mines and construct beneficiation plant based on Lead-Zinc Deposits of Duddar. The areas of Gunga & Sarmai located in close proximity of Duddar is offered as an investment opportunity
