microscopic gold deposits

Ore-microscopic and geochemical characteristics of gold ...

Gold deposits at El Sid are confined to hydrothermal quartz veins which contain pyrite, arsenopyrite, sphalerite and galena. These veins occur at the contact between granite and serpentinite and extend into the serpentinite through a thick zone of graphite schist. Gold occurs in the mineralized zone either as free gold in quartz gangue or dissolved in the sulfide minerals. Ore-microscopic ...

Microscopic Studies of Gold Deposit of Southern Ashaly in ...

The gold-sulfide deposit Southern Ashaly is localized in carbonaceous terrigenous formation (black shale strata) of the middle carboniferous (Bukon suite, which is the ore-hosting for super large deposit Bakyrchik). The Southern Ashaly is at the exploration stage and according to preliminary estimates of the expected resources belongs to a large deposit in scale.

2021-11-9  But having just a layer of silver is a problem since the metal can be somewhat toxic when in prolonged contact with the skin. So the researchers also deposit a second microscopic layer of gold, which is non-toxic to the touch. The gold not only protects the skin from the silver, but it also enhances the electrical signal, Zhang says.

Genesis of the World's Largest Gold Deposits

Almost 40% of all gold mined during recorded history has been recovered over the past 120 years from a single ore province: the Witwatersrand Basin in South Africa. Today, the gold-mining industry in the Witwatersrand has passed its maturity, but it is set to remain the world's leading gold producer. Estimated resources in the province still represent ∼35% of world gold resources (1, 2).
