Carlin-type Gold Deposits of Northern Nevada, USA
Northern Nevada is so intensely mineralized that it offers the opportunity to visit mining districts where multiple commodity types have been explored for and mined over the past 150 years. The region is host to a plethora of deposit types, from synsedimentary stratiform bedded barite (exhalative) to sedimentary, igneous related porphyry copper and molybdenum, skarns, and all manner of epigenetic occurrences (veins, mantos, etc.). The material for this week-long field trip covers a number of gold deposits located in and around historic mining districts throughout northern Nevada. The guidebook includes a detailed itinerary and route map.
