Hein, J.R. and Morgan, C.L., 1999, Influence of substrate rocks on
Fe-Mn crust composition: Deep-Sea Research I, v. 46, p. 855-875.
The long-held assumption that crusts do not acquire elements from the
substrate rock on which they grow is finally proven to be true. The
composition of crusts on phosphorite substrate rocks is distinctly
different from crusts that grow on other substrate types only because
crusts and substrates were mineralized by the same phosphogenic event.
Diagenetic phosphatization of the crusts caused chemical
reorganization of elements, including increases in some economically
important elements such as Pt, Zn, Cu, V, P, and Mo and decreases in
Fe and Si.
