Zinc-lead mineralisation of the Ganesh Himal region in Nepal Himalayas appears to be of considerable economic interest. The Genesh Himal ore with an expected reserve of 2-3 million tonnes contains about 16.4% Zn, 2.5% Pb and some recoverable silver. Mineralisation occurs very close to the Main Central Thrust (MCT) in crystalline saccharoidal dolomite within a highly-folded repetitive sequence of garnetiferous mica schist, quartzite, calcareous schist and amphibolite, which along with the ore suffered almandine-amphibolite fades metamorphism and intense Himalayan deformation. Graphitic schist occurs below the mineralised crystalline dolomite. Confined to a single carbonate stratum, the Ganesh Himal ore is believed to be of sedimentary origin. The coarse-grained nature of the recrystallised ore is characteristic of the deposit, resulted possibly due to its proximity to the MCT.
