Other examples, such as the abandoned gold deposits in the Robbins district, N.C. and the Nesbit mine, S.C., are associated with massive and (or) foliated pyrophyllite bodies, devoid of the high-temperature aluminosilicate minerals (andalusite and topaz), and their surrounding sericite-rich alteration zones. Epithermal deposits are classed as High, Low or Intermediate Sulphidation based on mineral assemblage and the pH/Eh of mineralizing fluids. Epithermal deposits in general may overlie or be spatially related to deeper porphyry systems.

Epithermal Gold Mineralization of the Circum-Pacific by J. W. Hedenquist Download PDF EPUB FB2

The primary objective of the book is to ellucidate the geological, geochemical and geophysical characteristics of new and/or different epithermal gold deposits and their districts in the Circum-Pacific, in order to improve understanding of the controlling factors in their formation, and to assist in further exploration.

Epithermal gold deposits are among the richest gold deposits in the world with some bonanza grade ore shoots containing more than 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 Author: David Tilley.

The sites of these depressions together with associated volcanism and gold mineralization migrated southeastward in northern Kyushu and eastward in southern Kyushu.

Thus, Quaternary gold deposits in Kyushu occur within 30 km west from the present volcanic front; the Pliocene gold deposits occur farther away from the active volcanoes. A fascinating group and characteristic of Epithermal gold deposits is that you can virtually see them forming today, simply by visiting hot springs.

Like those with Yellowstone in Wyoming or Rotorua in New Zealand. This photo is Pamukkale, low sulfidation hot springs in Turkey, with a beautiful white centre terraces. If you like hot springs, you’ll love epithermal. Let’s start where.

Porphyry copper deposits are large (commonly hundreds to thousands of million tonnes) and low to medium in grade ( to % copper). The majority of gold-rich porphyry deposits occur in the circum-Pacific and commonly contain to g/t gold. The general characteristics of porphyry systems include.

3. The geochemical behavior of gold in hydrothermal systems. The occurrence of gold mainly depends on temperature, pressure, pH values, Cl − concentration, and fugacity of H 2 S in a hydrothermal system.

Gold mostly occurs as AuCl − 2 in a system with temperature higher than °C (Gammons and Williams-Jones, ), and with decreasing temperature being the primary mechanism causing gold.

Epithermal deposits are a type of lode contain economic concentrations from a precious metal such as gold and silver, and in some cases base metals such as.

Although, geologically recent porphyry-epithermal mineral systems are mostly thought to form in magmatic arcs (both continental and oceanic) associated with convergent plate margins (Seedorff et al., ; Simmons et al., ), the geological setting of older examples is less clear, and some workers have suggested alternative settings that do.

Where possible, the terms used throughout this book are technically correct and in common use by field geologists working in mineral exploration. However, the terminology may not always be in strict agreement with some geological literature, to which the readers are referred.

Series. Eleven gold‐rich porphyry copper and 14 epithermal gold deposits around the Pacific rim contain > t (‐7 million oz) of gold. These large porphyry‐type deposits conform to a single overall model, whereas the large epithermal gold deposits are varied in both genetic type and mineralisation style.

Japan Gold has a total of 30 separate project areas located within known epithermal gold provinces and prospective for high-grade epithermal gold mineralization. Eleven of the projects are located on the island of Hokkaido, one of the projects is located on the island of Honshu, and eighteen of the projects are located on the island of Kyushu.

Although they are a product of the same igneous system, low sulfidation epithermals gold deposits are very different from high sulfidation.

In low sulfidation the main control for Gold deposition, is fluid boiling – caused by a drop in the confining pressures the fluid approaches the surface.
