exploration and evaluation methods to find g inapr 08, · during testing of the alluvial deposits, there is a tendency to bypass areas containing many large stones and easily test the finer material gathered around the boulders. in many cases, this is essentially salting the sample from which the valuable material in an alluvial deposit normally occurs in the finer material.estimated reading time 9 minsheavy mineral sampling of stream sediments for diamondheavy liquid separation to specific gravities greater than 3.33. the nonmagnetic heavy mineral fractions were picked for diamond and g by i m morrison geological services. magnetic heavy mineral fractions were handpicked at the university of victoria. in each sample, 30 grains of each mineral were picked, mounted in epoxy, and polished.g and pgmbearing conglomerate of theplatinum and palladium were detected in the heavy mineral concentrates recovered from placer sampling the alluvium, and naknek formation and tertiary conglomerates. in the peters creek area, grains of g (up to 0.0 oz/yd3) were recovered fromcontributions to the study of the alluvial g from valeafollowed by the traditional g washing procedure. this study presents some of our results in pianu de sus area obtained by a mixed research team (frenchgermanromanian), consisting of a morphological characterization of the alluvial g and of other minerals in the heavy fraction, as well as of the chemical composition of g.alluvial bulk sampling assay resultsthe bulk sampling was conducted from surface to a depth of 5 metres in an area where the alluvial gravels are approximately metres deep. alluvial g generally deposits in areas where high energy water flow slows down and the g is deposited in sinuous zones called leads on the inside curve of bends in the river. over time the gsample size and meaningful g analysis usgsquire preconcentration for g ·analysis, and for determining sample sizes for heavy minerals other bhan g. in addition to varia·bility in the number of g particles per sfwple, wtriability in g particle size is a major cause of imprecision in golcl analysis. several methods may be used tocited by 3geogene and anthropogenic controls on the mineralogy andoct 01, 08· the heavy minerals accompanying g in the placer deposit have derived from the highgrade metamorphic rocks of the manubian zone (e.g. sillimanite, almandine, clinozoisiteepidote s.s.s.) and from erosion into the apical parts of the granites and pegmatites around hagendorfpleystein (cassiterite, scheelite, wolframite, nigrine

method of placer g deposits exploration?i.g.m.e. (institute of geology and mineral exploration) (at present n.c.s.d.) has carried out a major exploration project for alluvial g deposits in northern greece since 75.g placer deposits earth scithe pan is then tilted and raised quickly still under water so that a swirling motion is imparted and some of the lighter topmaterial is washed off. this operation is repeated, occasionally shaking the pan under water or with water in it until only the g and heavy minerals are left.prospecting and sampling of till and alluviumalluvial system sampling was undertaken to look for kimberlite indicator minerals and to investigate further the property's potential as a host for diamondbearing pipes. till sampling was undertaken in order to obtain results that were more local and to attempt to reproduce the anomalous alluvial samples.0 visible g in bulk sampling concentrates feach metre in depth was sampled separately and assessed for alluvial g, rock and clay particle size distribution. 3060 kilogram subsamples were collected and manually panned down to a concentrate. the concentrates consist of heavy minerals including magnetite, iron sulphides, trace copper and g. gsampling and the estimation of g in a placer depositdescription the sampling and the estimation of the g present and recoverable play a very important part in the history and development of all placer deposits. for this reason everyone interested in placer mining should know the best methods of working this class of mineral deposit. the purpose of this bulletin is to indicate and describe to the miner and to the layman the best general methods used, sosedimentological characterization of alluvial gsedimentological methods such as granulometry, morphoscopy and heavy minerals analysis have been carried out to characterize alluvial g deposits of betareoya and its surroundings, with the aim to determine their origin and conditions in which they are formed and also to determine the mineralogical content of these deposits, their nature and distribution.
