Quartz vein morphology and implications for formation ...

A simplified scheme to categorise quartz vein morphology from gold deposits is based on the growth direction of quartz or pseudomorphed chalcedony in the veins. The categories are scale-independent and are: (1) face-control, (2) displacement-control, (3) parallel-control, (4) radiating, (5) non-directional control, (6) replacement, and (7 ...

The southern Tien Shan metallogenic province of Central Asia hosts a number of important gold resources including the Jilau gold–quartz vein system in western Tajikistan. These deposits were formed at the late stages of continent–continent collision in association with subduction-related magmatism, metamorphism and continental margin deformation attributed to the Central Asian Hercynian ...
