Gold Deposits in Metamorphic Belts: Overview of Current ...

Metamorphic belts are complex regions where accretion or collision has added to, or thickened, continental crust. Gold-rich deposits can be formed at all stages of orogen evolution, so that evolving metamorphic belts contain diverse gold deposit types that may be juxtaposed or overprint each other.

Years of geologic research have shown that orogenic gold is usually hosted in metamorphic rocks. This does not mean that all metamorphic rocks have orogenic gold, or that every mountain-building event leads to gold deposits. It just means that the orogenic gold that has been found was found in metamorphic rocks.

2010-7-1  Elevated gold in solution is achieved by complexing with reduced S, and by H 2 CO 3 weak acid buffering near the optimal fluid pH for gold solubility (the buffering is more important than being at the point of maximum gold solubility). Low salinity ensures low base metal concentrations in the auriferous metamorphic fluid.

2019-6-15  In the Phanerozoic, gold-mineralized belts are dominated by metasedimentary rocks, commonly turbidite sequences, which host the gold deposits. Mafic volcanic rocks are present in some gold provinces but are not ubiquitous. Hence, metamorphism of a sedimentary source rock is most likely to have produced the ore fluid in the metamorphic model.
