Abstract

Using high resolution X-ray Computed Tomography (HRXCT), the distribution of gold in acicular arsenopyrite of pyrite-arsenopyrite association of Suzdal (East Kazakhstan) and Olympiada (Yenisei Ridge, Russia) deposits was investigated. The results of micro X-ray tomographic studies allow drawing conclusions about the distribution patterns of gold in sulphides. It can be used to understand the genesis of productive mineral associations, and to develop optimal technological schemes for gold extraction.
