Gold deposits are usually divided into two broad categories based on different mining and processing conditions: placer and lode deposits. This report focuses on the geological environments in which gold deposits occur in Alberta. A literature study classified relevant gold references. Alberta Research Council staff did placer field studies to develop a sampling method.
