oC to ~300 o C, from the surface to as deep as 1 to 2 km. Here we highlight the general characteristics of the two principal styles of epithermal mineralization in which gold is the dominant economic metal. We base our generalizations on observations of many deposits and prospects in the circum-Pacific region. Distinguishing between the two styles is crucial for effective exploration. Although they show similar alteration mineralogies, the distribution of the alteration zones is different, and… CONTINUE READING
