.... Factor 3, on the other hand, is the dominant component in most samples from the Carlin, Gold Quarry, Maggie Creek, Pinson, and Preble deposits. It therefore appears that there are at least two geochemically discernible types of gold deposits in the northern Great Basin. These types are represented...

... and grandchildren, including the Christison family now engaged in ranching along the Osgood Mountains. Gold deposits at Pinson and Preble have been described as “disseminated” ( Powers, 1978 ) and “Carlin-type” ( Kretschmer, 1984 ; Bagby et al., 1988 ; Foster and Kretschmer, 1991 ). These ores have low silver...

...Dawn J. Madden-McGuire; Sherman P. Marsh Abstract The lower Paleozoic rocks that host gold deposits along the Getchell gold belt in Humboldt County, Nevada, represent several allochthonous terranes rather than a sequence of continuous deposition. The term "terrane" is used only in a descriptive...
