Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The global distribution of a broad class of large, low- to medium-grade mineral deposits in which primary ore minerals are mainly structurally controlled, and which are spatially and genetically related to felsic to intermediate porphyritic intrusions, is represented in this data set. Variations of this class include large mineralized stockwork and veins directly connected to the intrusions (porphyry), replacement deposits in a predominantly calc-silicate (formerly carbonate-rich sedimentary rock) host (porphyry-associated skarn), and large precious metal (+/- base metal) deposits that are distal but related to porphyry deposits (epithermal deposits). Porphyry and porphyry-associated deposits are the world's most important source of copper, molybdenum, and rhenium, and are major sources of gold, silver, and tin. Other by-product metals include tungsten, indium, platinum, palladium, and selenium.
