Paperback, " x 11".   Much of the copper, zinc, lead, silver, and gold mined in Canada is mined from volcanic–hosted massive sulphide (VHMS) deposits associated with submarine volcanism (VMS deposits). Examples are the deposits at Kidd Creek, Ontario, Flin Flon on the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, Britannia on Howe Sound, and Myra Falls (within Strathcona Park) on Author: Steven Earle. Iron oxide copper gold ore deposits (IOCG) are important and highly valuable concentrations of copper, gold and uranium ores hosted within iron oxide dominant gangue assemblages which share a common genetic origin. These ore bodies range from around 10 million tonnes of contained ore, to 4, million tonnes or more, and have a grade of between % and 5% copper, with gold contents . The most common associated gangue mineral in valuable deposits is quartz, while in lesser amounts are found calcite, barite, siderite, fluorite, rhodochrosite, and in some places the gangue minerals are silicates like feldspar, pyroxene, hornblende, rhodonite, etc. The silicate minerals are chiefly present in large lodes, where the deposit.

Gold group metals deposits. Western Copper and Gold. To know what type of rock is gold associated with you must see that the minerals most common in placer deposits are platinum, iridosmine, magnetite, iron pyrites, ilmenite, zircon, garnets, rutile and barytes; wolfram, scheelite, brookite and diamonds are less common. Diamonds are associated with gold in Brazil, and also occasionally in the Urals and in the United States. In auriferous quartz. Silver is a real metal and is connected to the Moon.

Newly Revised now Pages! Great Book! Includes. Ore deposits that are associated with mafic to ultramafic igneous rocks can generally be divided into those where the metals of interest are hosted in oxide minerals and those where the metals of interest are held as sulfides or are strongly associated with sulfides (e.g., PGE alloys, arsenides, bismuthinides). The oxide ore bodies include stratiform, podiform, and breccia-related chromite. tion gold-silver deposits are restricted to the western andesite assemblage (John et al., ). This paper is a summary of late Cenozoic magmatism and epithermal gold-silver deposits in the northern Great Basin (north of latitude 37°30'N). The focus is on variations in the composition, tectonic setting, and eruptive style of the. Where base metals- -such as copper, lead, and zinc–are deposited, either in veins or as scattered mineral grains, minor amounts of gold are commonly deposited with them. Deposits of this type are mined for the predominant metals, but the gold is also. recovered as .
