The ilmenite-magnetite ore deposit Krzemianka in northeastern Poland: brief history of discovery and exploration

Jacek Siemiątkowski


The Krzemianka deposit hosted in anorthosites of the East European Precambrian Craton was discovered in 1962 owing to exploration concept and planning of a drilling project by professor Jerzy Znosko. Since then, the ores have been extensively studied by several authors, both from petrological and genetic, as well as from economic point of view. The early ideas of establishing an industrial complex in the Suwałki area were abandoned in favour of the environmental protection of the scenic area.
