    The Witwatersrand deposits in South Africa represent the largest repository of gold in the World and a major resource of uranium. The genesis of the gold and uranium ores in the quartz-pebble conglomerates (reefs), however, is still a matter of considerable discussion. Opinion has been divided over whether they represent paleo-placers that have been partly remobilised by hydrothermal fluids or. A series of uranium-, thorium-, and gold-bearing conglomerates in Late Archean and Early Proterozoic metasedimentary rocks have been discovered in southern Wyoming. The mineral deposits were found by applying the time and strata bound model for the origin of uranium-bearing quartz-pebble conglomerates to favorable rock types within a geologic.

    Palaeo-quartz-pebble conglomerate. Detrital uranium occurs in some Archaean-early Palaeoproterozoic quartz-pebble conglomerates that unconformably overlie granitic and metamorphic basement. Quartz-pebble conglomerate uranium deposits occur in conglomerates deposited in the range million years ago.

Geology and Recognition Criteria for Uranium Deposits of the Quartz-Pebble Conglomerate Type - Final ReportAuthor: Andrew Button.

    Quartz pebble conglomerate uranium deposits are typically low grade but characterized by high tonnages. The Huronian deposits in Canada generally contain higher grades (% U 3 O 8) [10] and greater resources (as shown by the Denison and Quirke mines), however some of the South African gold deposits also contain sizeable low grade (% U 3.   This is similar to the instances when the euro price and the dollar price of gold disagree. For that comparison, it is usually the euro price of gold that ends up being right. Right now, we are seeing a divergence between gold prices and uranium prices. The implication is that the uranium market is pricing U 3 O 8 up higher than is merited. If.

The most important source of gold in the world is in conglomerates of lower Proterozoic age, and production of uranium from this type of host rock also has been substantial. The largest known reserves of both these ores are contained in quartz-pebble conglomerates and.

Gold and uranium occurrences in quartz-pebble conglomerate of Iron Ore Group, Bagiyabahal–Baratangra area, Sundargarh district, Odisha, India India is deficient in both gold and ura-nium resources.

Almost one-third of the annual global mine production of ~ tonnes of gold is imported into India to fulfil the high gold consumption. Ura. Quartz-pebble-conglomerate gold deposits represent the largest repository of gold on Earth, largely due to the depos-its of the Witwatersrand Basin, which account for nearly 40 percent of the total gold produced throughout Earth’s history.

This deposit type has had a Author: Ryan D. Taylor, Eric D. Anderson. Quartz-pebble conglomerates and associated quartzites host the largest known concentrations of gold, providing more than 50% of the world’s annual gold production.

Some of these deposits also contain economic concentrations of uranium, thorium, and rare earths, and Author: J. Gregory, C. Baring Horwood, L. Graton, E. Mellor, W. Liebenberg, D. Pretorius, D.

In India, quartz-pebble conglomerate-type gold and uranium mineralization was previously reported from the Dharwar and Singhbhum cratons (Rama Rao, ; Chakrabarti et al., ; Mukhopadhyay et.

Although gold was discovered in just about any type of rock that is found on Earth prospecting in quartz conglomerates is a pretty good bet. In the eastern United States quartz pebble conglomerates are commonly found in the Queenstown Delta as exemplified by the Schwangunk Ridge of New York and New have been reports of sparse gold deposits associated with this.

Pyritic gold and Gold and Uranium in quartz-pebble conglomerates. book bearing quartz-pebble conglomerates are of conspicuous economic importance forming the well known paleo-placers of the Witwatersrand in South Africa and the Blind River in Canada.

Currently, these two mining districts produce together about 1 of gold and 1 1 1 of uranium per year. This paper forms a part of the Ph.D work of UK under the guidance of RP supported by the University of Kerala. References Fareeduddin, Janardhan, A.

In fact, they were the primary source of uranium for several decades after World War II. The occurrence of quartz-pebble conglomerates (QPC) in the rock record increases backward through time from the Tertiary through the Precambrian.

The positive cor- QPC host many gold and uranium orebod-ies, and there is active debate about connec-tions between the mineralization and diagen-esis (e.g., Robinson and Spooner.

Comparison of the delta 18 O values of quartz pebbles and quartz sands in quartz-pebble conglomerates to delta 18 O values for quartz from likely source rocks suggests that compositionally homogeneous granites and related pegmatites are the dominant source of uranium, whereas hydrothermal lode gold veins are the dominant source of gold.

URANIUM DEPOSITS IN PROTEROZOIC QUARTZ-PEBBLE CONGLOMERATES IAEA-TECDOC UNBOUND BINDER-READY / LOOSE LEAF. Detrital uranium oxide ores are found in quartz pebble conglomerates deposited as basal units (Elliot Lake District, Canada) or intraformational conglomerates (Witwatersrand Basin, South Africa) in fluvial to lacustrine braided stream systems older than 2 Ma.

The conglomerate matrix is pyritic, and gold, as well as other accessory and. A main centre for uranium mining in Africa is focused along the Witwatersrand Basin, which also holds the world’s largest gold reserves. Here, uranium is found in Precambrian quartz-pebble conglomerates in the Brakpan and Krugersdorp regions.

Quartz-pebble-conglomerate gold deposits represent the largest repository of gold on Earth, largely due to the deposits of the Witwatersrand Basin, which account for nearly 40 percent of the total gold produced throughout Earth’s history.

This deposit type has had a controversial history in regards to genetic models. However, most researchers conclude that they are paleoplacer deposits that. Saager R., Oberthür T. () Nickel-Cobalt Sulfides in Precambrian Gold and Uranium-Bearing Quartz-Pebble Conglomerates of South Africa.

The Witwatersrand Basin comprises a 6, metre thick sequence called the Witwatersrand Supergroup, which consists of predominantly detrital sedimentary rocks interspersed sporadically with auriferous and uraniferous quartz pebble conglomerates, termed reefs, especially in the upper parts of the succession classified as the Central Group.INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY, Uranium Deposits in Proterozoic Quartz-pebble Conglomerates (Report of the Working Group on Uranium Geology), IAEA-TECDOC, IAEA, Vienna ().
