Gold Deposits in Amphibolite and Granulite Facies Terranes

Jan 01, 1998 Gold introduction at greenschist conditions during the retrograde evolution of the terranes is ruled out from some of the common mineralogical settings of gold. It is generally in equilibrium with high-temperature gangue minerals and can be as invisible gold in loellingite that was overprinted by arsenopyrite prior to cooling below amphibolite

SYN-METAMORPHIC GOLD DEPOSITS IN AMPHIBOLITE AND

Australia, a major gold province which currently provides about 7% of annual gold produc-tion, although most gold deposits, including the world-class Kalgoorlie deposits, are hosted in greenschist-facies terrains, about 15% of gold resources are in amphibolite- and granulite-facies terrains.

However, being an atypical gold deposit, the key geological parameters involved in its genesis need to be identified in order to understand its formation and define exploration criteria that will help discover similar gold deposits in the James Bay territory and elsewhere in amphibolite-grade terranes of the Superior Province.

Amphibolite Wikipedia

Amphibolite (/ æ m ˈ f ɪ b. ə ˌ l aɪ t /) is a metamorphic rock that contains amphibole, especially hornblende and actinolite, as well as plagioclase feldspar.. Amphibolite is a grouping of rocks composed mainly of amphibole and plagioclase, with little or no quartz.It is typically dark-colored and dense, with a weakly foliated or schistose (flaky) structure. .

Amphibolite: Mineral information, data and localities.

Amphibolite is a gneissose or granofelsic metamorphic rock mainly consisting of green, brown or black amphibole and plagioclase (including albite), which combined form ≥75% of the rock and both of which are present as major constituents; the amphibole constitutes ≥50% of the total mafic constituents and is present in an amount of ≥30%.

Oct 01, 1982 The Gold Hill area is comprised chiefly of inter- layered, steeply<lipping felsic and mafic volcanic rocks (Fig. 2). These rocks are intruded with amphibolite and hornblendite dikes and the entire succes- sion is engulfed with intrusive diorite--tonalite. The felsic volcanic rocks include volcaniclastic sediments and intrusive hypabyssal porphyry.

Apr 24, 2017 Quartz. •••. Nastya22/iStock/Getty Images. Gold is most often found in quartz rock. When quartz is found in gold bearings areas, it is possible that gold will be found as well. Quartz may be found as small stones in river beds or in large seams in hillsides. The white color of quartz makes it easy to spot in many environments.
