Gold Quarry is one of the largest gold deposits in North America. It is comprised of two stacked orebodies: an upper structural stockwork and a lower stratabound replacement. Overall strike of the main (upper) ore zone is N45E. It is bounded on the west by the Gold Quarry Fault and on the east by the Grey/Challenger fault systems.

Sep 24, 2012 Gold occurs in several geologic environments in Maine: in bedrock, in sediments that were eroded from bedrock by glaciers, and in stream deposits derived from either of these sources. Veins of gold in bedrock are called lode deposits, and placer deposits are concentrations of gold that accumulated in unconsolidated sediments.

Building above an abandoned mine can be dangerous if the mine is weak or near the ground surface. On Feb. 18, 2000, a collapse hole developed in the front yard of a house in Cabarrus County (Figure 21). The hole was above the old Phoenix Gold Mine, which closed in 1906. In the 1980s a suburban golf course community was built over the mine.

Jun 02, 2021 Typical grades for underground mining vary between 5 and 15 g/t gold. Epizonal orogenic gold deposits characteristically contain submicroscopic inclusions of gold in sulphides within quartz sulphide veins and in stockworks in faults. Free gold is rarely found in unoxidised ores and gold may also be present as aurostibite (AuSb2).
