sedimentary rock-hosted gold deposits in P.R. China. These breccia bodies are conformable with stratigraphic units in the host rock. An example of this is the Shuangwang gold deposit (Fan, S.C. and Jin, Q.H., 1994), which is a large Carlin-type gold deposit in the Qinling area, hosted by stratabound breccia bodies (fig. 29),

Jul 12, 2013· Epithermal gold deposits are among the richest gold deposits in the world with some bonanza grade ore shoots containing more than 1000 g/t gold, or in other words, a kilogram of gold for every tonne of rock mined. Unfortunately, the tonnage of ore in epithermal veins is typically small compared with other types of lower grade gold deposits. Gold mineralisation within epithermal veins …

Gold Deposits and Prospecting Methods. Gold occurs in two basic deposit types: lode gold and placer gold. A knowledge of how these types of deposits form and where they occur is essential for finding gold. Knowledge will multiply your chances of success. There are many books, websites, and government reports that describe gold deposits and how ...

Hydrogeochemical prospecting for gold: Groundwater collected from wells, springs, and drill holes may provide clues to the presence of subsurface gold deposits. As groundwater flows through the deposit, minute amounts of gold are leached from the rocks. These can sometimes be detected in groundwater samples collected from wells located down gradient from the deposit.

The term "Carlin-type" gold deposit (CT) was first used to describe the sediment-hosted gold deposits in central Nevada following the discovery of the Carlin mine in 1961. Carlin-type mineralization has been mined in Nevada since the 1930s, but was not recognized as a specific type of deposit to be searched for until a new batch of them ...

The problem is that gold occurs in so many different types of deposits. The indicators to look for in one place for one type of deposit don't always work very well for another. As an example, visible vein quartz on the ground is a valuable indicator in some locations, yet I have been to spots where there is so much vein quartz scattered ...

understanding of Carlin-type deposits, the smaller, slightly different deposits needed more research. With that motiva-tion, John Muntean and Moira Smith, with the help of Al Hofstra, put together a forum sponsored by the Society of Economic Geologists highlighting the diversity of Carlin-style gold deposits in the world.

Alluvium is a deposit of eroded materials and sediment that is gathered into one area. As gold and other materials are eroded, the small pieces are pushed by water and other forces into creek and river beds and other depressions. Because gold is heavier than most other naturally occurring materials, it settles at the bottom of these deposits.

Disseminated, Carlin-type, gold deposits are associated with a volatile suite of elements consisting of Hg, As, Sb, W, and sometimes, but not always, Au. Geochemical exploration for this type of disseminated deposit depends upon recognizing the significance of this volatile suite and interpreting it in light of other geologic and geophysical data.
