Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The spatial distribution and most significant geological attributes of the world's largest Mississippi Valley Type (MVT) lead-zinc metallic mineral deposits are depicted in this data set. Carbonate rocks deposited in continental marginal platform settings host these deposits, with multiple centres of mineralization commonly distributed over broad districts. Deposits are confined to specific stratigraphic horizons at the district scale but are discordant locally. Mineralization is thought by many scientists to post-date host rocks.
