2001-3-16 · Shear zones with ductile-brittle deformation textures of ore and rocks also are observed in some Chinese sedimentary rock-hosted gold deposits (figs. 23, and 24). Short-axial anticlines—defined as folds with a length in the axial direction roughly equal to its limb widths—are common and important ore-controlling structures in the Dian-

Ductile Folding of Sedimentary Rocks

2006-3-11 · Two main types of deformation during folding of rocks have been observed: ductile and brittle. In general, ductile deformation takes place at greater depths, where the confining pressure is higher and the manifestation of heat is important. On the ot her hand, brittle deformation occurs at shallower depths, where the confining pressure is lower

 · Under these conditions the deformation was brittle, as indicated by extension veins and by foraminifera that show no measurable distortional strain. Nevertheless, the limestone is often tightly folded; the folding mechanism combined dissolution of limestone along stylolites subparallel to fold axes with deposition of sparry calcite in extension veins normal to the stylolites.
