Orogenic gold deposits : A proposed classification in the context of their crustal distribution and relationship to other gold deposit types

  title={Orogenic gold deposits : A proposed classification in the context of their crustal distribution and relationship to other gold deposit types},
  author={David I. Groves and Richard J. Goldfarb and M. Gebre-Mariam and Stefan Hagemann and François Robert},
The so-called ‘mesothermal’ gold deposits are associated with regionally metamorphosed terranes of all ages. Ores were formed during compressional to transpressional deformation processes at convergent plate margins in accretionary and collisional orogens. In both types of orogen, hydrated marine sedimentary and volcanic rocks have been added to continental margins during tens to some 100 million years of collision. Subduction-related thermal events, episodically raising geothermal gradients… CONTINUE READING
