Epithermal Gold Deposits Geology for Investors

Jul 12, 2013  Epithermal gold deposites are among the richest gold deposits in the world, with some bonanza-grade ore shoots containing more than 1000 g/t gold-equivalent to a kilogram of gold for everyone tonne of rock mined. The tonnage of ore in epithermal veins is typically smaller than other types of low-grade gold deposits.

Epithermal Gold Deposits-Paf! I - USGS

The Goldfield deposit is an epithermal bonanza of the enargite-gold or quartz-alunite type (Berger, 1986). Such deposits occur in calc-alkalic volcanic rocks, are associated with the effects of intense acid-sulfate hydro­ thermal alteration, and typically have significant byprod­

Epithermal Mining Geology HQ

Epithermal deposits are major global sources of gold and silver and a significant contributor to base metal production (Pb, Zn, Cu). The term "epithermal" is derived from the latin term for "shallow heat" which is appropriate considering epithermal deposits form in the shallow crustal environment in association with intrusive/volcanic activity.

Gold, Mining and Prospecting: Epithermal Gold Deposits

Mar 05, 2011  Epithermal gold deposits are typically found in a near surface environment where the gold and other metals are deposited usually within 1.5 km from the surface.This type of deposit is always associated with volcanism either of the surface of the earth or in spreading centers at the bottom of the sea where their physical manifestation is hot springs, or are found associated with black smokers.

Gold Deposits and Their Geological Classification

developed for subsets of gold deposits such as those considered to be epithermal (Heald et al., 1987), intrusion-related (Sillitoe, 1991), bulk-mineable (Bonham, 1989) or epigenetic Archean (Gebre-Mariam et al., 1995). These have provided additional points of view and expanded the nomenclature surrounding the problem of gold deposit classification.
