New insights on the geochemical affinity and age of mineralized rocks in Timok magmatic complex, East Serbia
Bor and Čukaru Peki are world-class porphyry deposits, which are spatially and genetically associated with the Cretaceous Timok magmatic complex. This research was conducted to determine the age and geochemical affinity of the magmatic rocks that formed these ore deposits. Our new geochemical analyses of magmatic rocks from Bor and Čukaru Peki deposits imply they comprise adakite-like compositions which have underwent the processes of amphibole fractionation and sulphide saturation. The zircon ages indicate that the Bor system was formed in the age span between 84.5– 82 Ma, while the Čukaru Peki system was formed in the age span between 86.5 -85 Ma.
