Most epithermal gold-silver deposits in the northern Great Basin are hosted by middle to late Tertiary igneous rocks (Fig. 2). With the exception of the giant late Oligocene Round Mountain deposit and much smaller deposits in the Atlanta, Fairview, Tuscarora, and Wonder mining districts that are hosted by late Eocene to early Miocene caldera.

      Round Mountain Gold Corporation recovers gold using several independent processing operations, including crushed ore and run-of-mine ore leaching and a gravity concentration circuit. The company is a part of Kinross Gold Corporation, which is one of the largest primary gold producers in North America. of coarse gold. Several isolated lode districts occur in the Sierra Nevada north of the Grass Valley-Nevada City district. Most of the gold produced from these districts has been from quartz veins cutting granitic or metamorphic rocks. Placer deposits.
