Placer Deposit an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The most common placer deposits are those of gold, platinum group minerals, gemstones, pyrite, magnetite, cassiterite, wolframite, rutile, monazite and zircon. The California gold rush in 1849 began when someone discovered rich placer deposits of gold in streams draining the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

EarthWord–Placer USGS.gov Science for a changing world

2017-4-25  Placer deposits containing gold are areas that have highly concentrated accumulations due to stream/river erosional processes taking place around/over geologic terranes that contain gold, over a very long period of time. Placer deposits are an important source of many valuable minerals, particularly gold and rare earth elements.

New Mineral Deposit Models for Gold, Phosphate Rare

2021-5-6  Year Published: 2018 Quartz-pebble-conglomerate gold deposits: Chapter P in Mineral deposit models for resource assessment. Quartz-pebble-conglomerate gold deposits represent the largest repository of gold on Earth, largely due to the deposits of the Witwatersrand Basin, which account for nearly 40 percent of the total gold produced throughout Earth’s history.

Earth's continental crustal gold endowment ScienceDirect

2008-3-1  The same argument as for the shallow crustal gold deposits above should apply even more to placer deposits, bearing in mind that they typically form on the surface and in environments that are particularly prone to subsequent erosion. Yet, more than 90% of all placer gold stems from the Archaean, with only 5.7% from the Cenozoic.
