Abstract

Onta pottery and the Onta-Yamakuni gold areas are located in the northwestern part of the Neogene Hohi volcanic zone, northern Kyushu. Hydrothermally altered volcanic rocks in the area host gold-bearing quartz veins and clay deposits. The Asahi mine had produced at least 0.3 tonnes (t) of gold during a 12-year production period between 1935 and 1953.
