DATABASE OF SIGNIFICANT DEPOSITS OF GOLD, SILVER, COPPER, LEAD, AND ZINC IN THE UNITED STATES PART A: DATABASE DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS by Keith R. Long1, John H. DeYoung, Jr.2, and Stephen D. Ludington3 Open-File Report A This report is preliminary and has not been reviewed for conformity with U.S.

Geological SurveyCited by: Porphyry copper deposits are copper ore bodies that are formed from hydrothermal fluids that originate from a voluminous magma chamber several kilometers below the deposit itself.

Predating or associated with those fluids are vertical dikes of porphyritic intrusive rocks from which this deposit type derives its name. In later stages, circulating meteoric fluids may interact with the magmatic. copper deposits, 78% of 9 Comstock epithermal gold-silver districts, and 83% of six quartz- alunite epithermal gold deposits were classed correctly.

Across all deposit types, 88% of deposits. Orogenic gold deposits: A proposed classification in the context of their crustal distribution and relationship to other gold deposit types. Gold:silver ratios range from 10 normal to 1 less.

Manganese/copper ratios of greater than 20 indicate that one is well outside of the gold zone. Milligan, British Columbia The Mr. Milligan MBX porphyry gold-copper deposit (Fig.

15) contains million metric tons grading of % Cu and ppm Au (Faulkner APPLICATION OF METAL ZONING TO GOLD EXPLORATION IN PORPHYRY COPPER SYSTEMS Cited by: Quantitative information on the general locations and amounts of undiscovered porphyry copper resources of the world is important to exploration managers, land-use and environmental planners, economists, and policy makers.

This publication contains the results of probabilistic estimates of the amounts of copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo), gold (Au), and silver (Ag) in undiscovered porphyry. The reactivity of Cu, Ag and Au decreases down the group, and in its inertness gold resembles the platinum metals.

All three metals are stable in pure dry air at room temperature but copper forms Cu 2 O at red heat. † Copper is also attacked by sulfur and halogens, and the sensitivity of silver to sulfur and its compounds is responsible for the familiar tarnishing of the metal (black AgS.

Gold grades are less than ppm in the porphyry copper-molybdenum deposits. Between these end members is an economically important group containing significant amounts of both gold and.

The second part presents probabilistic estimates of the amounts of copper, molybdenum, gold, and silver in undiscovered porphyry copper deposits in each tract. The study also provides tables showing the location, tract number, and age (if available) of discovered deposits and prospects.

Gold occurs mainly as native metal, alloyed with silver and/or other metals, and as tellurides. A naturally occurring alloy of gold and silver is known as electrum. Other gold minerals are rare. Gold is commonly associated with the sulfides of antimony, arsenic, copper, iron, and silver.3 B.

Olympic Dam is one of the world’s largest orebodies. Located in Australia’s Gawler Craton, it is also one of the world’s biggest deposits of copper, gold and. Therefore, we know that the gold/copper ratio has reached an important inflection point.

Far-Reaching Implications. We believe that the gold/copper ratio is at a do-or-die level. If it follows the normal course, we should be looking for a reversal somewhere in this area. If so, it could put the ratio on course for a decline to somewhere around. The Saindak mine was estimated to have ore reserves of million tones containing on average gram of gold per ton and grams of silver per ton.

According to official estimates, the project has the capacity to prod ton of blister copper annually, containing ton of gold and ton of silver. The use of PIM is an important advancement in the use of indicator minerals for copper exploration, because the sulfide minerals typically known to be associated with copper deposits are not very.

Past production from the largest identified resources of gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc is estimated to be 12, t of gold,t of silver, 91, kt of copper, 41, kt of lead, kt of zinc. These deposits account for about 99 percent of cumulative domestic production in the United : U.S.

Department of the Interior. Gold & silver in average base-metal ores of Bingham. The main base-metal zoning pattern from pluton (Cu-Mo) to skarn (Cu) to limestone (Pb-Zn-Ag) displays a slight decrease in Cu:Au ratios by one order of magnitude and a significant overlap in Cu:Au ratios between the skarn and limestone environments In contrast, Ag:Au ratios over the same.

The purpose of this report is to assess the potential for undiscovered skarn deposits of gold, silver, copper, tungsten, and iron in the Butte 1 °X2° quadrangle.

Other deposit types have been assessed and reports for each of the following have been prepared: Vein and replacement deposits of gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, manganese, and tungsten; porphyry-stockwork deposits of copper.

Jeffrey Gundlach noted in early that this ratio is highly correlated with the year Treasury yield. Expect yield. Graph # Gold/silver ratio: Gold outperforms silver in disinflation/deflation periods.

The relation between gold and silver changed around when the bi-metallic standard ended and silver stopped being a medium of exchange. However, it is obvious that the correlation between them is as strong as it has ever been.

The National Mineral Resource Assessment project of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has compiled a database on the largest known deposits of gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc in the United States to complement the national assessment of undiscovered deposits of.

Here's why the copper/gold ratio is a key economic indicator Phil Streible of RJO Futures says gold and copper are the first markets he checks every morning. Author: Sophie Bearman. I look at gold vs. general (positively correlated) industrial metals quite a bit, but in listening to the Bob Hoye interview here, I got the prompt to check out copper-gold (CGR).

No big lecture here, just a chart of CGR and the S&P showing the close correlation between the assets of hope, growth and inflation, post Y2K, bubble and leading into phase one of the credit bubble.

Location coordinates can represent a generalized location or a specific mineralized site; for all of the deposits in the group, grade represents the.Some students of ore deposits adopt a descriptive classification based upon the dominant economic metals and then modify individual categories based upon compositional, tectonic, or genetic variations.

An example is the classification of porphyry deposits into porphyry copper–gold, porphyry copper–molybdenum, and porphyry tin by:
