New data on distribution of halogens and sulfur in apatites from diorite intrusives of the Voznesenskoe and Elenovskoe porphyry copper deposits, as well as Kutuevskoe ore occurrence, are presented. Apatites of these objects contain the higher Cl and S contents, which characterizes the fluid regime of porphyry copper ore-magmatic systems and liquid immiscibility in ore-forming fluids. These data confirm the possibile using of halogens and sulphate sulfur in apatites for substantiation of prospects of more mafic intrusions for finding of porphyry copper deposit.
