Abstract

It has been fairly firmly established that the fineness of the gold in any ore deposit varies with the depth from the surface at which the deposit was formed and as a corollary to this, that it is dependent upon the temperature and pressure at the time of deposition. This relationship is such that, under certain conditions, the gold fineness, taken into consideration with other recognised criteria, furnishes a very sensitive and reliable guide to the relative temperature of ore formation, at least within the epithermal and the upper part of the mesothermal range. The definition, determination, relation to deposits, and application of gold fineness are discussed in this report.
