Petrological and geochemical characterization of Ge-bearing coals from the eastern Rhodopes, Bulgaria

Abstract

The coals from Pchelarovo and Vulce Pole are perhydrogenated coals showing high sulphur content (3.2 - 6.2 wt%) and significant Ga and Ge contents (0 - 480 ppm) in organic matter (OM). The coals from Medenbuk could be perhydrogenated coals modified by weathering processes. They show low sulphur content (1.5 wt%), high homogeneous Ge contents in OM (~2500 ppm) and an unusual enrichment in Ge (up to 0.8 wt%) and V (2.8 wt%) in weathered zones of framboïdal pyrite. Sulphur isotopic study of pyrite and organic sulphur provides evidence of bacterial reduction of dominantly seawater sulphates. However taking account the geological context of the three basins, the introduction of volcanic fluids in the basins of Pchelarovo and Vulce Pole during their forma-tion cannot be excluded.
