A Guide to Overlooked Gold Deposits—Part IV
December 2003 by Lawrence DeeTrends are geologic situations in which the geological structure of an area is conducive to the deposition of minerals. These structures are generally fault systems that can be small and localized or can run for miles.

Two weeks of sometimes-heated testimony have ended in a case that pits Cyprus Amax Minerals against opponents who want to prevent the company from mining ore from a central Colorado mountain.
Epithermal Ore Deposits Associated With Tertiary Volcanism—And the Feasibility of Metal Detecting for Them
Epithermal ore deposits are common in regions of late volcanic activity, especially areas associated with Miocene and later Pliocene extrusive volcanics that have not been deeply eroded since the ore was deposited. Many are simple fissure veins, but stock-works and ore-pipes are also common.
