Archean orogenic lode gold deposits are the result of large, complex mineralizing systems that have developed within many Archean terrains. Mineralizing systems are defined to include all geologic factors that control the generation and preservation of mineral deposits and emphasize the processes responsible for deposit formation at a variety of scales. Deposits belonging to Archean orogenic lode gold mineralizing systems comprise epigenetic mineralization that formed as a result of focused fluid flow late during active deformation and metamorphism of volcano-plutonic terranes. They can occur in any lithology and formed at a range of paleocrustal levels through site-specific and local...
