This one and a half day short course is aimed at geologists who are both experienced in the geology and exploration of Carlin-type gold deposits. In the first day, John Muntean will introduce the features of Carlin-type gold deposits including their geologic setting, ore paragenesis, and hydrothermal alteration, with an emphasis on the large deposits in Nevada. He will cover targeting criteria for exploration at multiple scales. He will then summarize the features of intrusion-related carbonate-hosted distal disseminated deposits and epithermal deposits, emphasizing the likely spectrum with Carlin-type gold deposits.. Lastly he will summarize genetic models, emphasizing the like spectrum. On the morning of the second day, David Rhys will cover the structural controls on ore in Carlin-type deposits. Finally, Nicolas Pinet will present preliminary results of the Geological Society of Canada ongoing study of the Carlin-type gold deposits in the Rackla Belt of the Yukon.
