Gold deposits of the quartz-vein-type are the product of post-magmatic hydrothermal and metamorphic hydrothermal processes and are generally controlled by major and secondary faults. Their metallogenic materials originate from the surrounding rocks. The assemblages and contents of metal sulfides in ores of various deposits differ with geological setting and ore-forming and controlling conditions. Moreover, sulfide-gold-quartz ores predominate. The gold deposits of this type have distinct comprehensive geophysical prospecting features, and various physical prospecting methods yield a high degree of regularity. Taking a gold deposit of the quartz-vein-type in northwest China as an example, this study carried out comprehensive physical prospecting of deposits of this type, performed a quantitative prediction based on forward modeling, and conducted interpretation and analysis by combining theories related to geophysical prospecting.
