Many very productive and profitable and gold deposits contain less than 10 parts per million of gold. The majority of the world's productive gold deposits, especially those found in volcanic and sedimentary rocks, formed from circulating ground waters driven by heat provided by bodies of magma (molten rock) intruded into the Earth's crust.   The biggest individual holders of gold - Central banks, International entities and governments - are believed to account for approximately percent of Author: Paul Toscano. In the beginning of the 21st century most gold was extracted from ore deposits. According to estimates, 90 percent of the world production of gold in came from placer deposits. But in this percentage dropped to 8 percent in the capitalist world, and in to 2 percent.

The massive deposits of the Witwatersrand mines in South Africa have produced more than 40 percent of the world's total production of gold.

The origin of these ancient ores--several billion years old--is controversial. Some geologists think these deposits were formed when streams deposited the gold into an. M ost exploration geologists and researchers recognize a class of mineral deposits hosted by porphyritic-textured igneous rocks and characterized by stockwork styles, which form in large part from fluids released by cooling magmas.

These so-called “porphyry deposits” are responsible for a significant fraction of the world's Cu and Mo resources and contain modest to significant amounts of.

H istorically, gold has been considered unimportant in sedimentary exhalative (sedex) Zn-Pb and barite r, recent work in Nevada has demonstrated that the host rocks of mid-Tertiary Carlin-type gold deposits also contain Devonian sedex mineralization, which is significant because these deposits will be mined for gold and not Zn-Pb or barite (Emsbo et al.,).

The concentration of gold in the Earth's crust and mantle is extremely low and highly variable, resulting in ore variability in many gold and copper–gold deposits. More importantly, gold in an ore may occur in two or three forms (i.e., microscopic gold, submicroscopic gold, and surface gold), making gold ore processing extremely challenging.

They have been attributed to a broad category of ironoxide–copper– gold deposits from around the world. Olympic Dam (Gawler Craton, Australia) is the only known representative of this type with significant by-product uranium resources. Placer deposits have yielded over 60% of the world’s gold production.

The book includes: (1) a history of gold exploration and mining in this region from ancient times, (2) the contemporary classification of the deposits, (3) a detailed description of more than 50 major and most representative gold and gold-silver deposits – all including their location, geological setting, structure, alteration style.

Placer deposits form at Earth's surface when weathering action exposes gold from other, older lode deposits. The gold is swept into, and settles in, streams, lakes, rivers or the sea floor. Many placer deposits are of recent geologic age, but some are billions of years old.

In most of Earth's crust, gold concentrations are very low. Present day – no countries in the world use a gold standard. As ofno countries in the world use a gold standard. In other words, no currency in the world is backed by gold.

All sediment-hosted gold deposits (as a single population) share one characteristic—they all have disseminated micron-sized invisible gold in sedimentary rocks. Sediment-hosted gold deposits are recognized in the Great Basin province of the western United States and in China along with a few recognized deposits in Indonesia, Iran, and Malaysia.
