Pyriteinduced hydroxyl radical formation and its effect

Apr 04, 2006 Pyrite, the most abundant metal sulphide on Earth, is known to spontaneously form hydrogen peroxide when exposed to water. In this study the hypothesis that pyrite-induced hydrogen peroxide is transformed to hydroxyl radicals is tested. Using a combination of electron spin resonance ESR spin-trapping techniques and scavenging reactions involving nucleic acids, the formation of

Organic accumulation in the lower Chihsia Formation

The organic-rich Chihsia Formation Middle Permian on the Yangtze platform, western Hubei, South China, is considered to be the major hydrocarbon source rock in South China. The lower part of the Chihsia Formation, reported here, was deposited in an intrashelf basin and is characterised by black laminated marlstonesshales intercalated with dark-grey limestonesdolomites in which metre-scale...

Pyrite formation from FeS and H2S is mediated through

Apr 02, 2019 Pyrite is the most abundant ironsulfur mineral in sediments. Over geological times, its burial controlled oxygen levels in the atmosphere and sulfate concentrations in seawater. However, the mechanism of pyrite formation in sediments is still being debated. We show that lithotrophic microorganisms can mediate the transformation of FeS and H2S to FeS2 at ambient temperature if

Accumulation and Preservation of Reworked Marine Pyrite

Aug 01, 2007 Accumulation and Preservation of Reworked Marine Pyrite Beneath an Oxygen-Rich Devonian Atmosphere Constraints from Sulfur Isotopes and Framboid Textures ... A previous model for the formation of the Leicester Pyrite Member requires establishment of a strong and persistent density and chemical stratification in the Appalachian Basin. Although ...

Pyrite Earth Sciences Museum University of Waterloo

Pyrite seldom forms in fresh-water environments. The formation of pyrite crystals depends mainly on the iron content of the sediment. The process of pyrite formation in sediments results from the action of bacteria, which reduce sulphate ions dissolved in the pore water to sulphide. If there is iron present, iron sulphide crystals begin to grow.

Geochemical Trends Reflecting Hydrocarbon Generation

The member 6, composed of siliceous claystone and clayey-siliceous rocks and often also contain an increased amount of pyrite, indicating reducing depositional environment. The Bazhenov Formation is overlaid by the Frolov Formation and underlaid by the Abalak Formation.

High burial and bioturbation rates enable reactive compounds to become available for sulphate reduction, at depth, which otherwise would be destroyed by molecular oxygen at or above the sediment-water interface. An important consequence of bacterial sulphate reduction is the formation of sedimentary pyrite, FeS 2. In normal marine sediments ...

Mar 11, 2021 Our results indicate that pyrite stocks were driven by a combination of biomass, tidal amplitude, sediment organic carbon, sediment accumulation rates, rainfall, latitude, temperature, and iron availability. Pyrite stocks were three-times higher in mangroves 103 61 Mgha than in saltmarshes 30 30 Mgha and seagrasses 32 1 Mgha.

Alkalinity Production Coupled to Pyrite Formation

Mar 17, 2019 Under other conditions, pyrite can form other shapes such as disks, flat sheets, and less impressive crystal structures. For instance, below is a pyrite formation from Nevada. This formation, created by very different conditions than those that create cubes, forms thin strands of pyrite that overlap like quills on a porcupine.

Nov 01, 2020 Pyrite oxidation, which can lead to acid mine drainage, is a concern for miners all across the globe. However, little is known about the processes that cause this phenomenon.

A new kind of invisible gold in pyrite hosted in

Jun 24, 2021 Using a combination of microstructural quantification and nanoscale geochemical analyses on a pyrite crystal from an orogenic gold deposit, we show that dislocations hosted in a deformation low-angle boundary can be enriched in Ni, Cu, As, Pb, Sb, Bi, and Au. The cumulative trace-element enrichment in the dislocations is 3.2 at higher compared ...

Pyrite, or iron disulfide, is the most common sulfide mineral on the Earths surface and is widespread through the geological record. Because sulfides are mainly produced by sulfate-reducing bacteria SRB in modern sedimentary environments, microorganisms are assumed to drive the formation of iron sulfides, in particular, pyrite. However, the exact role played by microorganisms in pyrite ...

HighSulfidation Epithermal PyriteHosted Au AgCu Ore

Sep 01, 2014 Interaction of this liquid with the host andesites caused advanced argillic and intermediate argillic alteration, including sulfidation of mafic minerals to form py I. During crystallization of py I, Au, Cu and Ag were adsorbed onto the surface of the pyrite and deposited as nanoparticles, or were incorporated in the pyrite structure.

The iron isotope composition of sedimentary pyrite has been proposed as a potential proxy to trace microbial metabolism and the redox evolution of the oceans. We demonstrate that Fe isotope fractionation accompanies abiotic pyrite formation in the absence of
