Synvolcanic gold-base metal deposits: the widespread base metal prospects and geochemical signatures indicate the potential for these types of deposits, and the style of mineralization at Akasaba is consistent with such an interpretation, including its polymetallic characteristics (Au-Cu-Zn-Ag), the high concentration of sulfides (up to 30%), the stratiform nature of the mineralized zones, multiple stratigraphic targets, and proximity to felsic flows and volcaniclastic layers.
The previous miners extracted gold from structurally controlled siliceous zones and quartz veins with disjoint pods of sulphide (pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite), hosted in stratiform metamorphosed calcareous shales of Proterozoic age.
