In Magmas, Fluids, and Ore Deposits, Ed.: J.FM. Thompson, Mineralogical Association of Canada Short Course Vol. 23 (1995) Chapter 19 CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH-SULFIDATION EPITHERMAL DEPOSITS, AND THEIR RELATION TO MAGMATIC FLUID Antonio Arribas Jr. Mineral Resources Department, Geological Survey ofJapan, 1-1-3 Higashi, Tsukuba 305, Japan INTRODUCTION

Numerous characteristics of the igneous rocks associated with epithermal deposits are diagnostic of magmas with greater water contents. Hornblende phenocrysts are nearly ubiquitous constituents of intermediate composition igneous rocks associated with epithermal deposits (du Bray, 2014)....

Epithermal Gold Deposits Characteristics

2019-10-14 · A fascinating group and characteristic of Epithermal gold deposits is that you can virtually see them forming today, simply by visiting hot springs. Like those with Yellowstone in Wyoming or Rotorua in New Zealand. This photo is Pamukkale, low sulfidation hot springs in Turkey, with a beautiful white centre terraces. If you like hot springs, you'll love epithermal.
