...Peter G. Vikre Abstract Gold ore at the adjacent Sandstorm and Kendall mines occurs in silicified fissures or ledges that formed by both open-space deposition and replacement of Miocene rhyolites 2 mi (3.2 km) north of Goldfield, Esmeralda County, Nevada. The ledges, which are approximately 21 Ma...

... & Southard 1985 ). This is readily demonstrated in a desert sandstorm. The most optimistic maximum settling velocity for sulfides a millimeter across in a komatiite melt is less than a cm/s. As the lava flow initially proceeds at rates of meters/second, it is clear that embayments are a far more effective...
