Feklistova Island


Feklistova Island

Feklistova or Feklistov Island (Остров Феклистова; Ostrov Feklistova) is one of the Shantar Islands in Sea of Okhotsk. With an area of 372 km², it is the second largest in the archipelago.

Feklistova lies about 20 km to the west of Bolshoy Shantar Island, the main island in the group. Feklistov Island is covered with taiga forest and has a 3 km long lake in its northern shore separated from the sea by a landspit.

Administratively this island belongs to the Khabarovsk Krai of the Russian Federation.

This island is part of the "Kondyor-Feklistov metallogenic belt" (KD) owing to the presence of placers [ [http://www.springerlink.com/content/y331110373p2117u/ Placer on Feklistov Island] ] which include minerals like "blacksand platinum". [ [http://direct.bl.uk/research/2D/41/RN138357726.html Platinum] ] The "Kondyor-Feklistov metallogenic belt" is one of the major metallogenic belts of Northeast Asia. It is assumed that it formed by an oblique subduction of the oceanic crust of the Mongol-Okhotsk paleoocean under the southern margin of the Siberian continent.
