with one exception, most nonmetallic mineral deposits in metamorphic terranes. Furthermore, contact metamor­ phic ores have received no attention because their ore-gen­ erating events are predominantly magmatic-hydrothermal (rather than regional metamorphic), and in any case, such ores would warrant a whole volume to do them justice.

Class 9 Metamorphic Rocks and Metamorphic Deposits

Key indicator minerals are used to identify the metamorphic zone. The metamorphic zone is the manifestation of a certain set of physical and chemical conditions. For example, look at the minerals which form by contact metamorphism of an impure limestone (mostly calcite, but with impurities of quartz and clay)(Figure 9 3).
