TOPIC: “Gold/Base Metal Ore Deposits of Kassandra District, Northern Greece” In the last three years TVX Gold Inc. has defined world class deposits of Cu-Pb-Zn-Ag-Au in an area originally mined during the time of Alexander the Great. The Skouries deposit is a pipe-like alkalic porphyry Cu-Au deposit with similarities to the Northparkes systems, and the Olympias deposit is the largest of several polymetallic Pb-Zn-Ag-Mn-As-Au replacement deposits hosted by Palaeozoic marbles in a gneiss dome setting. Skouries contains more than 500Mt at 0.47g/t Au and 0.37% Cu, with grades of up to 1% Cu and 2g/t Au in the deeper zones.
Gene Tobey is Chief Geologist with TVX Gold Inc., based in Santiago, Chile.
