Mineralized and sulfide bearing altered rock samples were analyzed using ore microscopy, SEM-EDX, QEMSCAN and atomic absorption spectrophotometer techniques.
All the bulk samples have variable quantities of gold, silver and base metals as evident by bulk sample analysis for gold, silver and base metals concentration.The ore microscopy and SEM-EDXstudy of Astor area reflects copper and lead mineralization witheconomic concentration of Au in lattice structure of Cu and Pb bearing phases associated with quartz veins and their alteration products.
Hematite peaks were recorded in XRD analysis but it could not be observed in ore microscopy and Raman spectroscopy determinations.
Ore microscopy and Raman spectroscopy images of pyrolusite are shown in Figure 3.
