Similarly, numerous sieved silt samples are anomalous within this large source area, for example, greater than 15 ppb (parts per billion) gold with a large number being in excess of 100 ppb gold (maximum of 1142 ppb gold - see attached maps).
The anomalous -80 mesh samples are coincident with anomalous pan-concentrate samples that contain 2 or more grains of gold per pan of sediment; with the majority of targets containing samples with colour counts of over 10 grains of gold per pan of sediment.
88 ppb while ranges for anomalous and highly anomalous ratios are also higher.
These highly silicified rocks are also anomalous in As, Sb, Ag and Hg and occupy a NNE trending graben structure.
briefly discusses fundamental properties of glassy disordered systems at high temperatures close to the transition to liquid, then in more detail discusses anomalous properties at low energies, in fact at low temperature and/or frequencies lower than the Debye values.
