Gold Deposit Classification: List of 10 Types of Gold Deposits

Gold/Auriferous Deposits can be classified into types for which here is a List of 10 Types of Gold Deposits:

  1. Auriferous porphyry dykes, sills, and stocksAuriferous pegmatites; coarse-grained granitic deposits + albitite.
  2. Carbonatites and carbonatite-related deposits.
  3. Auriferous skarn and gold skarn type deposit.
  4. Gold/Silver and vise-versa veins, lodes, mineralized pipes and irregular silicified deposits in fraction, faults + zones.
  5. Auriferous veins, lodes, sheeted zones, saddle reefs in faults and fractures.
  6. Silver/Gold and vise-versa veins, lodes, stockworks and silicified zones in a complex geological environment with sedimentary, volcanic and various igneous intrusive + granitic rocks.
  7. Disseminated and stockrock gold/silver deposits in igneous, volcanic and sedimentary rocks.
  8. Gold deposits in quartz-pebble conglomerates and quartzites.
  9. Eluvial and alluvial placers
  10. Various other gold sources.
