New gold deposit model for the North American Cordillera
A publication by Christopher Ash, PGeo., presents new insight into the setting and characteristics of gold deposits in the North American Cordillera, which are closely associated with mafic-ultramafic rock suites. Although many of these types of deposits have been mined for over 100 years, their genetic relationship to ophiolitic rocks has not been documented or well understood before. Many have been, or still are, significant gold producers in major gold mining camps.
In Ophiolite Related Gold Quartz Veins in the North American Cordillera, the author presents detailed observations on the setting of lode and placer gold occurrences in proximity to ophiolitic rocks. The proposed model concisely defines the characteristics of gold occurrences associated with these rocks and presents new details and interpretations of the geology in the Atlin area, within the Cache Creek Terrane, as well as in the Bralorne-Pioneer, Rossland, Barkerville and Cassiar areas of British Columbia. There are also comparative discussions of the setting and nature of the Alaska-Juneau deposit, and the California gold deposits such as Grass Valley and Motherlode.
