Eluvial and Alluvial Placers and Gold-Quartz Vein

Sketch illustrating outcrop of a gold-quartz vein supplying material to form eluvial and alluvial placers. By one terminology, an eluvial placer embraces all materials not transported by streams. By another, only the placer materials over weathered and disintegrated deposits constitute an eluvial placer; downslope and other placer materials are classified as deluvial and proluvial as shown.

Quartz Vein an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The quartz–gold vein at Pyae Pyat (23°07′N, 96°08′E), close to Kyaukmaw (Fig. 8.1) but on the Kyaukpyu Fault, was mined for about 10 years, but work is now suspended. A single steeply dipping vein up to a meter wide, and striking 325°, was worked to a depth of 80 m. The host rock is chlorite schist, part of the Kyaukmaw Schist.

Gold in Quartz February 2016 (Vol. 85, No. 06) ICMJ's

Gold in quartz veins occurs as particles and scales scattered through the quartz, often filling cracks and openings in the vein material. The gold can be such small particles as to be invisible to the naked eye, or as larger aggregates of easy to see blobs, leaves and crystals in cavities in the quartz.

The Geology of Hydrothermal Quartz Veins that are Gold Bearing

Mar 07, 2011· The Geology of Hydrothermal Quartz Veins that are Gold Bearing When you first look at a quartz vein in a rock it looks like a very narrow vein but in reality a quartz vein develops into a sheet like body of quartz or other mineral that is carried in the cracks and fissures in the rock by a hot aqueous solution that is deposited through

Consequently, the infilling quartz veins cut the country rock according to the pattern of fractures. A concentrated network of gold bearing quartz veins forms quartz stockwork deposits. Widely spaced networks of quartz veins are known as vein sets. Saddle reefs form when quartz veins are concentrated in the apex of an anticline.

Some cryogenic weathering features of gold-quartz veins

Apr 01, 1990· Residual gold is concentrated above the outcrops of gold-quartz veins. These are eluvial haloes which have an increased abundance of coarse gold, and are the result of the removal by water of sand, clay and fine gold from the weathering zone. The Au concen- tration in the eluvial halo is 1.5-3 times greater than that in the primary ore.

Gold: Mineral information, data and localities.

Gold occurs in significant amounts in three main types of deposits: hydrothermal quartz veins and related deposits in metamorphic and igneous rocks; in volcanic-exhalative sulphide deposits; and in consolidated to unconsolidated placer deposits. It may also

Vein morphology can be used to group these veins which can further serve as a tool to identify formation conditions. There are many classifications of veins, but the sub-classifications of morphology that will be used in this section will include microscopic morphology and growth morphology.

Variation in placer style, gold morphology, and gold

Coarse gold (>3 mm, >0.5 g) and gold with low flatness index (<7) becomes lodged in bedrock crevices and is only remobilized by bedrock erosion. Gold undergoes minor to moderate rounding in primitive placers but little or no flattening or folding.

RESIDUAL & ELUIVIAL GOLD PLACER EXAMPLE GOLD

Jan 11, 2013· Eluvial gold placers usually represent a transitional stage between a residual placer and a stream placer. Where one type merges into another, they cannot be clearly distinguished. They are characteristically found in the form of irregular sheets of surface detritus and soil mantling a hillside below a vein or other source of valuable mineral.

I have found that often only one or two veins are carrying gold so I would call those the source not call all the veins on the hill the source. Otherwise I could be in a gully between to slopes both traversed by quartz veins and point at either hill and call those reefs the source.

Geochemistry and Fluid Inclusions Analysis of Vein Quartz

The gold‐bearing epithermal quartz veins in the Carmen and Florence areas are of two types: (i) the enargite‐rich veins and (ii) the quartz–pyrite–gold (QPG) veins. The two types of veins are mainly hosted by the Cretaceous Lepanto Metavolcanics basement rocks, with minor veins cutting the Pleistocene Imbanguila Dacite Pyroclastics.

Eluvial Placers (Montana Gold Claims)

The eluvial placers contain mainly scheelite with small amounts of wolframite and gold, these minerals being derived from a complex of scheelite bearing skarn, quartz-wolframite veins and northeast striking quartz-arsenopyrite-pyrite-scorodite-gold veins, all lying slightly uphill from the eluvial placers.
