Fig. 2

Typical shapes encountered in cumulative percentile vs. increasing Ag plots. a: plot 1: uniform Ag composition such as that observed in gold particles from the same small volume of ore, plot 2: variation in Ag such as that observed in a placer population derived from a single source. b: forms of curve generated by two distinct subpopulations where ranges are mutually exclusive (plot 1) and overlapping (plot 2). c: identification of distinct sub-populations using both alloy and inclusion data (adapted from Chapman et al. 2000a, b, c)
