The Alabama and adjacent Georgia Inner Piedmont consists of a complex suite of metasedimentary and metavolcanic units that could have associated syndepositional hydrothermal systems. To evaluate the potential presence of such systems, a preliminary reconnaissance (silt and heavy minerals stream sediment) geochemical survey, consisting of 553 sites, was conducted. Silts were analyzed for Cu, Pb, and Zn; panned concentrates, for Au. Measured geochemical averages and the corresponding standard deviations for the samples are 16 ± 10 ppm Cu, 9 ± 6 ppm Pb, 37 ± 17 ppm Zn, 61 ± 29 ppm combined Cu-Pb-Zn, and 0.128 ± 0.751 ppm Au....
