Bor and Čukaru Peki are world-class porphyry deposits spatially
and genetically associated with the Cretaceous Timok magmatic complex. This
research was conducted to determine the age and geochemical affinity of the
magmatic rocks that formed these ore deposits. Our new geochemical analyses
of magmatic rocks from Bor and Čukaru Peki deposits imply they comprise
adakite-like compositions that have undergone the amphibole fractionation
and sulphide saturation processes. The zircon ages indicate that the Bor system
was formed in the age span between 84.5–82 Ma, while the Čukaru Peki
system was created in the age span between 86.5–85 Ma.
