Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
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, but some important Canadian deposits which may originally contained somewhat less gold have been included. Lode gold deposits have originated in a wide variety of geological environments. Some are related to hydrothermal fluid circulation at moderate to very shallow crustal levels associated with igneous activity, and many were focussed in structural and geochemical traps during periods of moderate to intense deformation. Important paleoplacer deposits are included in this database, but unconsolidated placer deposits were excluded.
