Alteration types. during advanced alteration, fluid xco was ---0.1 and nak , 10. volcanics of the kinojevis and larder lake groups are 180 enriched relative to pristine tholeiites and possess distinct mineral i180 values, probably due to different conditions of marine-water.
The alteration patches, which stand as former hydrothermal fluid pathways in this study, coincide spatially with major gold mines and major gold occurrences in the study area. areas indicated with high intensity of alteration are located adjacent to lineament triple junctions and areas where multiple lineaments are.
Ore deposits classification vs modeling each ore deposit is unique like a persons finger print this uniqueness arises out of fundamental differences in processes and environments local, site-specific geologic variations and produces an extremely large variation in characteristics if we group the deposits according to their characteristics, we get.
Epithermal deposits can be distinguished from detachment-fault-related deposits by their characteristic ore mineralogy, alteration minerals and patterns, geochemical signatures, and fluid-inclusion compositions, as described in the deposit model for hot spring au-ag berger, 1986b. principal distinguishing characteristics are the.
The most widely accepted term is archean orogenic gold deposits. orogenic refers to the mountain building processes that happens when continents collide. archean orogenic gold deposits are found in a variety of rock types. what they all have in.
A continuous 900-m-long mineralized structure marked by alteration and gold values of 1 gt or more is indicated in drill core from the lochalsh zone to the island zone. the island gold lower zones at the island gold mine concerns six 6 mineralized zones g, g1, b, c, d and e1e in the deepest part of the deposit, of which the c zone is the.
Alteration and mineralization patterns tend to center around these jasperoid bodies. geology comments five types of unoxidized ore are differentiated by radtke 1985 on the basis of mineral content, chemical composition, and associations of the gold 1 normal ore, 2 siliceous ore, 3 carbonaceous ore, 4 pyritic ore, and 5 arsenical.
Alteration assemblages, associations, or types may be further interpreted from the mapped mineral distributions and notes. in granitic rocks where only one original mafic mineral can be mapped, the geologist must decide how to record complex or multiple alteration events that may result in zones of biotite, chlorite, and sericite in mafic mineral sites cf. seedorff et al.,.
