"Lodes" in context

Lodes are a type of mineral deposit, normally found with near-vertical veins and featuring distinct and varied layers. Research suggests that lodes form from the cooling of magma, with the heat driving off volatile elements such as sulfur, leaving richer percentages of metal bearing minerals such as copper, tin and gold to be deposited. These layers then slowly swell and expand as the deeper molten rock cools and the void is filled with solidifying metals.

Lodes are an invaluable resource for the mining industry, as they can give a clear indication of which minerals may be present in the surrounding area.
