Shape Ore Body: There are three main types of ore bodies: vein-type, massive, or tubular. Vein-type: Vein type deposits are those that almost always have a dip at an angle greater than 50 degrees. Massive: Massive ore bodies are those that spread over hundreds of meters. Tubular: Tubular deposits are those that are relatively flat.Learn More
