Gold in Metamorphic rocks: Facts and Fancy

2020-10-13  GOLD IN METAMORPHIC ROCKS: FACTS AND FANCY Fig. 1 A possible, fractal-like, classification of mineral deposits, in which the shear zone related ores have a symmetrical position to the “intermediate” ore deposits, such as porphyry coppers or massive sulfide

Gneiss Classification, Composition, Characteristics

Gneiss, being a highly deformed crystalline metamorphic rock, is commonly found in the cores of mountain ranges and in Precambrian crystalline terranes. The rock itself is formed at crustal depths of 10 to 20 km, at pressures of 10kb or more, and temperatures between about 500-700°K, so at depths where rock becomes quasi-viscous, high-grade

Pyrite Better known as “fool’s gold,” pyrite was often mistaken by prospectors as gold because of it’s brassy color and shine. It’s name is derived from the Greek word pyr which means “fire.” When struck by iron, pyrite emits a spark of fire. Pyrite occurs in many different shapes and

Gold is a soft metallic element. Its symbol is Au. It is very dense. As one of the noble metals it is resistant to corrosion and oxidation in moist air. Copper is a soft metallic element. Its symbol is Cu. Native copper is rare because it has been mined for centuries.

Lewisian Gneiss The Oldest Rocks in Britain and some of the Oldest in the World. The oldest rocks in Great Britain are to be found here, in the Outer Hebrides. As well as being spectacularly pretty, these rocks are 3 billion years old, yes they are actually two thirds the age of the Earth (what a thought).

How to Identify Raw Gold Sciencing

2018-3-13  Raw gold has a smooth, but bumpy texture, caused as the gold tumbles through rivers and streams. When you set it in your palm, and set a rock of equal size next to it, the real gold feels substantially heavier. Flakes of fool's gold iron pyrite break apart easily when you thrust a fingernail through it in the gold pan.

Gneiss Metamorphic rocks

Gneiss is a very widespread rock type, especially in the lower parts of the continental crust, but it is also a common rock on the surface in some places (Scandinavia, Canada, and other shield areas where crystalline rocks are not covered by a layer of sedimentary rocks).. A sample from Karelia, Russia. This specimen has a composition of an ordinary granite: pink K-feldspar, gray quartz, and

Most of the ore deposits occur as veins in the gneiss, but those of the Frisbie mine are mostly in the gabbro near the gneiss. A few silver veins are known to cut the granite. Lower Meadow Creek--the country rock is granite and gneiss. Ore deposits occur as low grade gold-quartz stringer veins in the altered contact gneiss zone.
