Reply to discussion on “Tectonic controls of Mississippi Valley-type lead–zinc mineralization in orogenic forelands”
Bradley and Leach (2003) focused on the tectonics of a subset of Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) lead–zinc deposits. Age assignments followed those given in a review of MVT deposits worldwide (Leach et al. 2001)—a paper that provoked a discussion by Kesler and Carrigan (2002) and reply by Leach et al. (2002), similar to the present exchange. While the new discussion by Kesler et al. (2004) does address tectonic issues, it also continues the old debate about the pros and cons of Rb–Sr isotopic and paleomagnetic dating of MVT deposits. We address these dating techniques first.
