Just thinking.......
« on: February 24, 2015, 08:54:32 AM »
Both hardrock and placer....... donít you think itís odd that, not all, but most mines/deposits/showings I can think of, are South facing, or fundamentally so ???

Any theories ?
Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

heres my thought larry,  maybe easier to locate on south slopes, usually drier and more open (less vegetation) more erosion because of opener terrain so outcrops are easier to find.  <-thinking->

Black sands are attracted to the north pole and gold, being non-magnetic, to the south.  LOL

Actually, if what you are saying is true and I have no reason to doubt your observation, I would expect it has to do with erosion.  Over the years, there is a more dramatic freeze/thaw cycle on the south slope because of the direct sunlight.  If this hypothesis is true, then we should see a lessoning of this effect as we move closer to the equator and maybe the opposite in Australia.

I'm going with glacial action, and sticking with it ..... ish! In the Barkerville area, from what I've heard and read, the ice sheets moved more in a westerly direction. That theory plays out on my claims.

I'm with you Joe, I think it's glacial if in fact it is true. Coming from  the cold cold North and pushing South.
