ABSTRACT
Within the West Ulytau belt are the two-phase implementation mafic ultramafic, differing in age, metamorphic grade, ore content and features in different structural levels. With peridotites associated copper-nickel sulfide mineralization having lenticular-elongated shape, and sometimes forming an annular and arcuate structure. Peridotite and gabbro-diabase sill have the nature of occurrence, stacked structure and a subparallel bodies located within the volcanic rocks, alternating with them.
Most are rich in sulfides peridotites ring structures where sulphide content in some bodies up to 7%. The mineral composition of sulfides is fairly constant and is represented by the degree of prevalence of the following: chalcopyrite, pentlandite, pyrrhotite, magnetite, sperrillitom, millerite, nickeline, that is a classic association of ore minerals, constantly present in ores magmatic copper-nickel sulfide deposits.

Keywords: basites, ultrabasites, sills, sulfide mineralization, copper, nickel
