The distribution of gold is clearly related to sedimentary features its grain size distribution, for instance, is very similar to that of placer gold. In general, gold is more abundant in conglomerates that are thinner, well packed, and contain larger pebbles, and a matrix rich in hematite. In these conglomerates the quartz and hematite, and ...
greenstone-type gold lode deposits. Deposits are variable and structurally complex, featuring gold that occurs in both quartz-filled shear zones and in altered rocks adjacent to shear zones. The metamorphosed volcanic belts in which they are found average between 15km and 40km in width, and cover approximately one-sixth of Ghanas surface ...

Alluvial gold deposits occurred throughout the country in favorable areas overlying Birimian metavolcanics and metasediments rocks. The vast majority of historical gold production from Ghana prior to the 20th century came from a myriad of small streams and rivers draining areas with underlying oxide and primary gold deposits (Hilson, 2002).
Oct 01, 2016 Regional geological overview. The Bepkong gold deposit is located in the WaLawra greenstone belt in Northwestern Ghana, and is part of the Paleoproterozoic Birimian terranes of the WAC ( Fig. 1 ). This belt is the only NS trending belt in Ghana ( Kesse, 1985, Samokhin and Lashmanov, 1991, Pobedash, 1991, Roudakov, 1991 ), whereas all other belts trend NESW ( Griffis et al., 2002 ).
Apr 01, 1993 The bulk of the gold comes from the primary lode occurrences of the Birimian rocks of Ghana (formerly The Gold Coast). Birimian lithofacies is characterised by subaqueous fine-grained sediments with bimodal volcanic material. Metasedimentary rocks include phyllites and metawackes.

Oct 16, 2020 Alluvial gold deposits in Ghana have over the years been mainly exploited by artisanal methods however, the proliferation of mechanised methods in recent years has resulted in a significant increase in gold output (Rae et al. 2009 Buadee et al. 2018 ).
The distinct low-salinity H 2 O-CO 2-rich fluids from the granitoid-hosted gold deposits are comparable in composition to those from the major Ashanti and Tarkwaian types of gold deposits in the Birimian terrane of Ghana. These fluids are most likely to be metamorphic in origin and associated with the waning stages of the regional Birimian orogeny.

Gold mining in Ghana has a long and dynamic history. Mining in Ghana dates back to several centuries and its allure was one of the principal reasons for the British desire to control the Kingdom of Ashanti and extend British rule over the whole of what was known in nineteenth century as the Gold Coast.1 From 1901-1902 there were
