Gold Skarn Deposits—Geology and Exploration Criteria The ...

About 10 6 kg (>30 Moz) of gold have been recovered from skarn deposits. These occurrences can be subdivided into five major skarn types: gold, iron, copper, porphyry copper, and lead-zinc. Each skarn type has distinctive characteristics and can be differentiated on the basis of geochemistry, mineralogy, pedogenesis, and tectonic setting.

Gold Skarns

Characteristics of Gold Skarns Gold skarns are defined as skarn deposits in which gold is the primary or dominant economic metal present. The following features should be noted about these deposits: 1. They occur worldwide along destructive plate margins (Figure 1) and tend to have a spatial and temporal association with Cu porphyry provinces. 2.

Skarns in the Porphyry Copper-Gold Environment

Porphyry-related skarns are common around thePacific Rim. Examples include Cadia and Goonumbla (Australia) Ok Tedi (PNG) and Ertsberg and Grasberg (Indonesia). Although usually treated as separate to the adjacent porphyry copper-gold (Cu-Au) deposit, skarns near porphyry deposits are commonly inextricably part of the larger Cu-Au system(s).

Gold-bearing skarns - USGS

In recent years, a significant proportion of the mining industry's interest has been centered on discovery of gold deposits; this includes discovery of additional deposits where gold occurs in skarn, such as at Fortitude, Nevada, and at Red Dome, Australia. Under the classification of Au-bearing skarns, we have modeled these and similar gold-rich deposits that have a gold grade of at least 1 g ...
