Summary:The broad-scale geochemical similarities of these two deposits suggest that carbonate-hosted disseminated gold deposits in Nevada may be the result of a general set of processes that have operated repeatedly in various places. Detailed studies of the Carlin and Cortez deposits serve as the basis for a conceptual model, which can be revised and refined with additional studies. New data and observations are presented for other carbonate-hosted disseminated gold deposits in Nevada, and some slight modifications and extensions are proposed to previously published conclusions on the Carlin and Cortez deposits.
