Statistical studies of selected trace elements with reference to geology and genesis of the Carlin gold deposit, Nevada

January 1, 1994

Linear regression and discriminant analyses techniques were
applied to gold, mercury, arsenic, antimony, barium, copper,
molybdenum, lead, zinc, boron, tellurium, selenium, and tungsten
analyses from drill holes into unoxidized gold ore at the Carlin gold
mine near Carlin, Nev. The statistical treatments employed were
used to judge proposed hypotheses on the origin and geochemical
paragenesis of this disseminated gold deposit.
