primary and secondary gold deposits

referred to as primary and secondary • Primary deposits form where gold precipitates during chemical reactions between hydrothermal (hot fluids) mineralizing solutions (metalbearing) and rocks in the Earth's crust (eg, Valentine Lake) • Secondary deposits form later during the chemical and mechanical

Primary and secondary Gold

2009-8-18  Secondary gold 1). Primary gold Formed 2.6 billion years ago from very hot (300-550oC) water dissolving low-level “background gold” out of a large volume of rock redeposits it in a number of small areas to form large tonnage, generally fine grained, but low grade deposits, several kilometres below the then surface of the Earth in the Yilgarn Block

Gold Deposits Goldfo

When primary gold deposits are eroded away by weather (temperature, wind, water) over millions of years, it is referred to as secondary deposits. The gold is flushed out of the rock and accumulates with other heavy minerals as fine gold dust or as small grains, the so-called “nuggets”, in the shallows of streams and rivers. The so-called “placer gold” is formed. Gold resulting from weathering is also called “stream gold” or “gold soap”. Orogen Gold Deposits

Primary Deposits - GOMIAM – Better gold mining

2021-6-17  Primary deposits are usually discovered by coincidence during mining of secondary material. The gold is embedded in rock. The type and the condition of the rock with the gold vein, define the technique to be applied for extraction. Most common mining techniques on primary deposits are the use of water (in case of decomposed rocks), hydraulic ...

Understand the difference between primary and

In the case of diamonds, the kimberlite would be the primary source rock and the alluvial river gravels that contain the concentrated diamonds would host the secondary placer deposit. Gold originates from a primary hard rock source and is transported via rivers and streams.

Oxidation and Secondary Enrichment of Gold Deposits ...

The supergene enrichment of gold in deposits may take place by a simple mechanical process, by chemical means, or by a combination of these. First, the enrichment may be primarily the result of the chemical removal of a large part of the gangue minerals, in which case the gold migrates slowly downward by gravity or is left behind as a residual ...
