... Abstract The Cripple Creek district is known for its low-sulfide gold-telluride vein systems of great vertical range (~1,OOOm) with virtually no change in ore grade; however, in the last 10 years shallow, low-grade, bulk-tonnage deposits have been recognized and developed. The deposits...

... evolution of central Colorado, and how large gold deposits form. The Cripple Creek gold deposit in central Colorado is hosted by an Oligocene alkaline diatreme complex. Cripple Creek is distinguished from the majority of epithermal ore deposits in the region by its remarkable production record (~930 t Au...

... of different settings. It is somewhat surprising, given the economic prominence of the Cripple Creek district, that it has escaped such attention. This is probably related to two main factors. First, in many types of hydrothermal gold deposits, quartz veins are common, and they offer an ideal sampling medium...

... the margin backstepped, but then aggraded at Cripple Creek. At Wapiabi Gap, to the north on the Bighorn Range, the margin was dominantly aggradational. Ireton Formation shale deposition was also influenced by currents. In the Lower gigas Zone, the Leduc carbonate platform reached a maximum syndepositional...
