Summary
Ultramafic hosted hydrothermal deposits are ubiquitous along slow-spreading ridges such as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR; e.g., Ashadzé, Rainbow, Lost City) where they exert a major control on economically important elements (e.g., Zn, Cu, Ni) cycling. However, the origin of metal mobility in these environments remains unclear. Here we use Zn (δ66Zn), Cu (δ65Cu) and Fe (δ56Fe) stable isotopes to unravel the reaction pathway that produced hydrothermal fluids below venting areas in the Rainbow massif (MAR 36°14’N). Specifically, we explore the mobility of metals during: (1) the serpentinization of the Rainbow massif basement in a seawater dominated system at low temperature (< 250°C) and (2) the subsequent high temperature (>350°C) mineralization of serpentinites through seawater-derived fluids that interacted with gabbro prior to interact with serpentinite near hydrothermal sites (stockworks). We show that the mobility of metals in hydrothermal fluids can be enhanced by both peridotite interaction with seawater or with fluid that interacted with deeper mafic bodies and then flowed to the surface. These processes generate hydrothermal deposits with distinct metal signatures.
