Characteristics that distinguish types of epithermal deposits

Three distinctive groupings of epithermal deposits were recognized from a literature study of fifteen well-described precious- and base-metal epithermal districts, supplemented by L. J. Buchanan's 1981 compilation of data from 47 less completely documented deposits. The three groups are distinguished primarily by the type of alteration and the sulfur fugacity indicated by

Epithermal | Mining Geology HQ

Epithermal deposits are important sources of gold and silver, representing about 30% of total gold metal production per year. There are two principal styles of epithermal mineralization: low sulphidation (LS) and high sulphidation (HS) epithermal deposits with an intermediate category sometimes recognized.

Epithermal gold (± Cu & Ag) deposits form at shallower crustal levels than porphyry Cu-Au systems, and are primarily distinguished as low and high sulphidation using criteria of varying gangue and ore mineralogy, deposited by the interaction of different ore fluids with host rocks and groundwaters. Low sulphidation deposits are in turn further divided according to mineralogy
