The spatial distribution and most significant geological attributes of bedrock-hosted (lode) gold deposits of large size and importance are depicted in this data set. Most of these deposits originally contained at least one million troy ounces (31 metric tons) of gold metal. Lode gold deposits have originated in a wide variety of geological environments. Some are related to igneous emplacement and others are formed during periods of moderate to intense deformation . Placer and paleoplacer deposits are not included in this data set. The downloadable data summary is periodically extracted from a database prepared for the World Minerals Geoscience Database Project (1998-2003). The full database can be viewed and queried over the Internet, and is being provided on CD-ROM as a GSC Open File. The CD-ROM version of this data set requires the use of MS-Access, and the database management (data entry/browsing and query) utilities packaged as GlobalDBSystem and developed by Robert Laramée.
