Alex Brown in his chapter "Redbeds: source of metals for sediment-hosted stratiform copper sandstone copper, sandstone lead, and sandstone uranium-vanadium deposits" reviews conventional genetic models for the deposit types listed in the title, illustrated by some case examples, For all deposit types, the ore-forming process involves the early oxidative diagenesis of first-cycle continental clastic sediments; the leaching of metals from labile minerals by saline groundwaters; and the transport of the metals by groundwater flow to a reductive subsurface environment, such as beds containing organic detritus or digenetic pyrite, where the metals are precipitated.
