5/3/2011& 0183;& 32;Epithermal deposits occur in three different phases depending upon how much sulfur is present in the epithermal water. Deposits of this nature are classified as high sulfidation intermediate sulfidation and low sulfidation each of these types of deposits are identified by their alteration mineral assemblages occurrence texture and in some cases are even identified by the associated element.

2020/11/10& 0183;& 32;Potential environmental impacts related to the mining and processing of alkalic-type epithermal gold deposits include acid mine drainage with high levels of metals especially zinc Zn copper lead Pb and arsenic. However
Many epithermal deposits occur in remote regions of under-developed countries and the construction of infrastructure such as roads and mills may be necessary before deposits can be mined. These expenses increase the cost of a mining operation and must be taken into consideration when calculating the economics of a deposit.

2/6/2021& 0183;& 32;Kaolin deposits can be nearly pure kaolinite or may contain impurities that affect the characteristics of the clay. Kaolin can be classified into two broad types: primary residual kaolin developed in situ by the alteration of pre-existing feldspar-rich rocks

1/1/2005& 0183;& 32;The broadly stratiform kaolin deposits constitute advanced argillic alteration that was produced in a steam-heated zone near the paleosurface overlying the deeper hydrothermal systems. The deeper zones represent two distinct types of epithermal systems: weakly acidic inferred low-sulfidation systems at Tresnuraghes and acidic high-sulfidation systems at Romana.
Association of Mining Analysts: London July 2013 www.explorationalliance.com 4 Global Distribution The high and low sulphidation epithermal deposits associated with blue coloured belts are late Mesozoic and Cenozoic in age generally <120 Ma and are associated with recent subduction zones including the present day Pacific Ring of Fire.
2020/11/02& 0183;& 32;It's a mineral called kaolin — a type of clay historically used in the production of glossy white paper as well as in clay-based ceramics cement and fibreglass. But this deposit is special.
& 0183;& 32;IS epithermal deposits occur in a broadly similar spectrum of andesitic-dacitic arcs but commonly do not show such a close connection with porphyry Cu deposits as do many of the HS deposits.
& 0183;& 32;Oct 01 2016& 0183;& 32;Kaolin occurs in Patagonia as residual weathering or hydrothermal deposits at the surface of an extended Jurassic rhyolite province or in the upper sedimentary Cretaceous or Danian–Paleocene layers. On the same paleogeographic surface numerous epithermal Au–Ag lodes occur making kaolin genesis a crucial point in mining exploration.Cited by: 6
Epithermal deposits are the products of large-scale hydrothermal convective systems driven by magmatic heat in the upper 5–10 km of the Earth’s crust. There are two classes of epithermal deposits which can be discriminated in terms of their geologic environments alteration mineralogy and fluid chemistry: 1 low-sulfidation epithermal deposits and 2 high-sulfidation epithermal deposits.
sulphidation epithermal Au-Ag deposits display two fluid flow trends and zoned deposit types within either arcs or strongly extensional settings. The arc deposits tend to be sulphide-rich with a progression in styles in time and from deep to shallower crustal levels as quartz-sulphide Au & 177; Cu to carbonate-base metal Au and then epithermal
Epithermal Au-Ag deposits form in the upper 1 km of the crust and are therefore best preserved in the less eroded Pacific rim arcs although also recognised elsewhere. Two profoundly different ore fluid types give rise to low and high-sulfidation styles apparent as variations in ore and gangue mineralogy as well as characteristic zoned wall rock alteration. Low sulfidation epithermal Au
Epithermal gold deposits offer some of the largest and highest grade gold mines in the world. Epithermal deposits are the products of large-scale hydrothermal convective systems driven by magmatic heat in the upper 5–10 km of

Higher level epithermal deposits are commonly formed later in a deposit paragenesis and may be telescoped upon deeper earlier formed deposits including in some instances porphyry systems which are older or part of the same overall magmatic event e.g. Lihir Corbett et al. 2001 .

High sulfidation epithermal deposits are created by fluids from hot magma. Rocks that come in contact with the fluids are altered and a definable zone formed. These alteration zones as they move away from the core are characterized by the following mineral assemblages: alunite pyrophyllite kaolinite illite and chlorite rich clays.
Mosaic and jigsaw textures are commonly associated with ore minerals in epithermal deposits e.g. Mexican epithermal deposits Moncada et al. 2012 . Samples 2018585 2017724 2018201 2018203 and 2018211 display jigsaw
The Bodie mining district in Mono County California is zoned with a core polymetallic-quartz vein system and silver- and gold-bearing quartz-adularia veins north and south of the core. The veins formed as a result of repeated normal faulting during doming shortly after extrusion of felsic flows and tuffs and the magmatic-hydrothermal event seems to span at least 2 Ma.Epithermal
Volcanic rocks and silver-gold deposits of the Patterson mining district belong to a small suite of 7-5 Ma volcanic fields and low-sulfidation epithermal deposits in the Walker Lane. Volcanic rocks and low-sulfidation epithermal deposits of similar age to those in the Patterson district occur in the Como Gilbert Pine Nut and Silver Peak districts.
