      The comparison of the Pinavand fluorite mines with MVT and Epithermal deposits always revealed various points of similarities and dissimilarties,making it difficult to asign Pinavand ores to one of these two types of mineralization.In the present study,on the basis of Geochemical,Geological and Mineralogical information it is concluded that Pinavand fluorite mines are actually more akine to MVT ore deposits than Epithermal ones.

     Comparisons of characteristics of Pinavand?s Fluorite Mines with MVT ore deposits and epithermal deposits have shown that there are various similarities and differences among them. However, based on presented data, we must at least determine a defined border and at best assign it one of two type?s ore deposits. In present study, Geochemical, Geochemical, Geological and mineralogical information shown, Pinavand Fluorite Mines resemble MVT ore deposits and in fact MVT character of these deposits overcomes Epithermal character.
