Diversity of mineralization is an essential phenomenon in ore forming process. It is represented not only in genesis, morphology, attitude, dimensions, ore types, ore combination, useful and damaging elements within one deposit, but also in ore deposits, ore fields, ore belts, ore provinces, mineralized district and metallogenic epoch. It is subject to geo anomalies of ore source in the origin of ore materials, to geo anomalies of ore fluid in the carrier of ore medium, to geo anomalies of ore transformation in energy , to geo anomalies of reservoir environment in ore accumulation, and to geo anomalies of preservation or destruction in post metallogenic diversification. Therefore, the characteristics and attribution of diversity of mineralization may be determined by the geo anomaly background. The spectrum of ore deposits is related genetically with the diversity of mineralization, which may play an important role in appraising and forecasting new types of mineral deposits. So the research of diversity of mineralization and its spectrum of ore deposits is of great significance in discovering regional rules of mineralization as well as research of supper large ore deposits, ore fluid and regional mineralization on a large scale.
