A complicate question about finding gold
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:23:27 AM »

I actual live in Japan and i am very actively searching for Gold.
There are a lot of geology infos for Japanese soil provided by the goverment and certain maps.
This picture is a part of the map and you can see a lot of infos on it, deformations, rock type, fault lines and so on.
I find this area very interresting and want to search for placer gold over there.
Anyone may has a idea where on the map the chances for gold could be high?

The black dots without a number are active fault zones and a small band of intrusive rock that is about 50m wide, I think the lines were straight in the past but because of the deformation the middle part has been bend upwards, it looks kinda funny.

Everything is according to Japanese sources.
Material with the same colour is the same kind of material.

The number 1 is: No infos about the type of material, just that it was at the bottom of the sea and was lifted upward because of a Accretionary wedge.

The number 2 is: Its roughly 200 million years gold and some kind of glass related Not many infos avaible)

The number 3 is: Its the small band of intrusive rock that cooled out relativ shallow under the surface.

The number 4 is: Its metamorphic rock that was mudstone before it was deformed to the current type of rock.

The number 5 is: Its sandstone that was before at the bottom of the sea and had an uplift because of a Accretionary wedge .

The number 6 and 7: Both parts look like they have been connected before the whole mountain range pushed between it.
Its basalt that has been formed through volcanic eruptions at the bottom of the sea.

There are many kind of straight lines, this are fault lines with a lot of movement.
The whole area has no active or inactive past volcanoes.

Thank you very much, I hope someone knows a lot about this kind of things.

Gold mining distrincts in South east asian countries have been carpet bombed to slow mining income during war times. I would look into maps of japan uxo's before venturing in the forest.  Japan has a very long written history I am sure you will find gold.
