Forecasting and prospecting criteria of Au-bearing weathering mantles in southern Siberia, Russia



The geological and genetic model of gold concentration at different stages of weathering has been developed on the basis of long-standing geological and geochemical research of Au-bearing weathering mantles in the main ore fields of Siberia. This model makes it possible to substantiate forecasting and prospecting criteria of gold deposits hosted in linear karst zones of weathering, to delineate prospective areas in southern Siberia, and to estimate their resource potential.
