Alam Kandi mine is located 150Km away from west-southwest Zanjan. The area is situated in the cross zone of Alborz, Central Iran and Sanandaj-Sirjan zones. Dominant rocks include schist, marble, gneiss and amphibolite.
Lead-zinc mineralization has occurred in mica schist along a NW-SE striking strike slip fault. Mineralized zone has the attitude of N50W, 55 NE, and the fault zone that is 5m thick. Silicified veins contain iron oxide, sphalerite and galena. Chalcopyrite has situated inside the galena as inclusion.
Mineral parageneses is a low temperature type, which probably their time of origin is similar to Anguran Deposit, but the minerals and host rock differs. Therefore the mineralization of Alam Kandi deposit has been in relation to hydrothermal activities of recent magmatism.
Mine reserve is 105000tons ore with 10% lead and zinc. Because of close distance to Anguran, its ore can be used in Dandi Plant to produce concentrate. Based on areal topography, drilling parallel tunnels toward the veins dip was suggested for mining. Also it was suggested to map geology of the area on the scale 1:1000, in addition to IP geophysical study.
