ABSTRACT

The South Siberia is located within the limits of mountain systems of the Altai,
Kuznetsk-Alatau, Salair Ridge, Western and Eastern Sayany. It is one of the oldest gold
ore regions of Russia. Apart from widespread gold-bearing placers there are numerous
primary deposits of gold-quartz, gold-skarn and gold-bearing sulphide-polymetallic
types. Gold ore potential of such primary deposits is largely worked out and the gold
mineral-raw base build-up problem through other deposit types in the region is
extremely urgent. Main prospects concerned with primary gold mineralization of the
Southern Siberia are associated with a search for gold-sulfide, gold-silver, goldporphyry
types of deposits and in gold-bearing weathering crusts. The article presents
the characteristics of such promising types of gold mineralization in the region. The
special distribution analysis of gold ore objects and their relationships with intrusive
and stratified complexes allowed drawing the chart of the South Siberia metallogenic
zonation for gold. The analysis of integrated geological, mineralogical and geochemical
data demonstrates special features of different types of gold mineralization, conditions
of its localization and prospecting indicators, structure and composition of forecasting
gold ore fields (2200 tons).

Keywords: gold, metallogeny, potential resources, mineralogy, Siberia
