Gold mineralization in Scotland: a rough guide for

2011-12-12  Studies of placer gold at Leeds University have built upon a method originally developed by the British Geological Survey (BGS). The technique draws upon two sources of information: the composition of the gold alloy (i.e the % silver (Ag), Copper, (Cu) or mercury, (Hg)) and the suite of inclusions of other minerals that are revealed by polishing.

Microchemical Characterization of Alluvial Gold Grains as ...

There is considerable variation in the composition of native gold and the nature of minerals co-existing with it, and this reflects differences in the geological environment and chemistry of ore-forming processes. In areas where gold-bearing mineralization is subject to active fluvial erosion, especially in temperate climatic regimes, any discrete grains of native gold pass into alluvial ...

Gold Deposits—Placers SpringerLink

Abstract. Placer deposits provided early man with the first samples of gold and thereafter have accounted for a large production of the metal. If we include the Witwatersrand and other quartz-pebble conglomerates as fossil placers or modified placers, the placer type of auriferous deposit has provided more than two thirds of the world’s store of gold, about 80 × 10 9 grams (2.6 × 10
