PROSPECTS OF DISCOVERY OF NEW DEPOSITS OF LEAD AND ZINC IN THE REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA
Deposits of SEDEX and MVT types in the territory of Macedonia have not been identified yet, although they are known in neighboring Serbia (Bobija, Lece, Kišnica and Blagodat). Since they are of major industrial importance in other regions of the world, an attempt has been made to study and summarize the available information on the discovery possibility of such deposits in the territory of the Republic of Macedonia, as well as to show their significance in the future. One of the tasks of this paper is to adapt the known forecasting and prospecting model of deposits of these types to the territory of the Republic of Macedonia. The information given in the article is of great importance for predictive-metallogenic constructions, prospecting and evaluation of deposits of these types not only in the territory of Macedonia, but also globally.
