Gold: Geology, geochemistry, genesis and exploration

This two-day-long workshop will focus on the present day understanding on the most widespread mineral deposit types that host much of the global gold resource. Leading experts will provide descriptions of some of the most important examples of each deposit type, with detailed material on tectonic and structural controls, geological characteristics, geochemical and geophysical signatures, geochronological relationships, and exploration strategies.

Presented material will include characterization of orogenic gold deposits, low and high sulfidation epithermal gold deposits, gold-rich porphyry deposits, Carlin-type, and intrusion-related gold systems.

The most up-to-date evidence for ore-formation processes and development of genetic models for these various deposit types will be described. The course is aimed for geoscientists from both industry and academia, as well as students of economic geology, who desire a comprehensive understanding of modern concepts on the geology of gold deposits.
