The purest antimony, or that in which no gold or quartz was seen, was picked out; and a market was found for it in Melbourne at. £5 10s. per ton on the ground. The quantity thus raised and sold enabled the party to purchase and erect a small highpressure steamengine, and a battery of six head of revolving stamps.
Grid E contains a larger broad, coinci dtnt v! m.: s lead anomaly with peak values up to 6390 ppm and 528 ppm respectively. 10. Recommendations Additional prospecting, trenching and diamond drilling is warranted to further investigate the auriferous quarts veins at the James Occurrence. Further prospecting should be carried out on grids C and E,

These include granites, diorites and granodiorites. These are rocks that have undergone more or less tectonic formations. In general, the gold exploited in this petrographic type is associated with the quartz veins that intersect these rocks, and sometimes which espouses the direction of the deformation. (Figure 7 A, C and E).
pyrite and galena are contained in fissure veins dissecting Precambrian granite. Of the 28 reported occurrences of gold lode, 16 produced over 100 tons of gold are. The largest producers in the region were the Dives and Gold Prince mines; each reported production of 10,000 tons of gold are.

goldbearing quartz. Prospecting is hardly begun there. South of the mother lode, through Madera, Fresno and Kern counties, the Sierra Nevadas likewise display a wealth of quartz veins which remain practically un touched and unexplored. During the past year the Randsburg, Panimint and other districts in the south have indicated the great mining
Gold bearing quartz veins on the JBP Linear Property are hosted within Late Ordovician to Silurian metasedimentary rocks of the Davidsville Group. The property is mapped as being underlain by northnortheast trending grey to black slate and siltstone, minor red slate and minor sandstone.
Some of the important minerals found in the state are copper, lead, zinc, bauxite, chromium, gold, arsenic, kaolinite, biospore, ochre, coal, lignite, slate, marble, sapphire, rubellite, quartz and serpentine. A brief account of the spatial distribution of minerals in the state has been given in the present article.
/t'SlAj lO GOLD AND GOLDDIGGERS, EVER was the excitement connected with the discovery of any other metal so intense and so widespread as that relating to Gold. Let us trace some of the extraordinary nary phases of this excitement, and then glance rapidly at the chief commercial results of the discoveries. But before doing so, it may be well to notice the form or forms in which .

exist. These veins are mineralized with tennentite and grab samples (taken in 1993) contain gold up to oz/ton Au. As you head west from the silicified zone into the Creston Formation rocks a series of weakly pyritized quartz veins can be found. These veins are quite abundant, with some containing obvious amounts of siderite and/or ankerite.

We literally took small sledgehammers to the bottom to smash open the quartz veins. Sometimes there were hollows in them and when they were opened up we could see ten's of pieces of gold skittering down into the deeper recesses. It was fascinating and frustrating and dangerous; the broken quartz was razor sharp.
Prospecting has been carried out in the Slana area since before the turn of the century, and between then and the earlp 1930's a number of argentiferous base metal quartz veins were discovered. Placer gold was also discovered during the early prospecting. Figures 48 show the distribution of gold and base metals in the area.
quartz, distinguished by cathodoluminescence studies at some deposits, has overgrown orestage quartz druses (, Meikle, Emsbo et al., 2003; BetzePost, Lubben, 2004). The generally low abundance of orestage quartz and lack of onetoone correlation between quartz and Au in Carlintype deposits may be related to the relatively low temperature

dip about 20° SW. Mineralization consists of quartzcalcite veins containing galena and minor pyrite. The veins generally coincide with bedding planes but may cut across. The veins are vuggy and, where oxidized, often contain abundant iron oxide and traces of copper stain. Apparently some native gold was mined
Goldbearing quartz veins in this granitoid terrain have been the predominant source of Au in the Eastern Desert of Egypt ( El Sid, Atalla, El Sukari, Umm Rus and Atud). The majority of these deposits occur as Au bearing quartz veins of polymetallic character (El

Sooner or later such deposits were depleted, and placer mining gave way to quartz mining, which obtained gold from veins or ore bodies underground. Gold extraction became a business, with stockholders, managers, engineers, and waged labor.
My goodness – what a year this was. 1872 stands as the defining year of the NSW goldfields – the year that cemented their place forever in the annals of the world's richest gold discoveries and the year that also contained the imminent seeds of demise for the NSW gold mining industry.
