Abstract

Еxploration of gold as a mineral resource in Macedonia has a long history. There are more than 30 occurrences, but now gold is obtained only from the Buchim mine (Bogoevski, K., 1998). This paper presents the chemical characteristics of gold which was researched by schlych prospection in several localities related to the Tertiary magmatism.- Borovic, Borov Dol, Plavica and Alshar. The localities selected belong to two major geotectonic units - the Vardar zone (ore deposits Borov Dol, Alshar and ore occurrence Borovic) and the Serbo-Macedonian massif (Plavica ore deposit). The Tertiary magmatism of calc-alkaline type is most important for ore-forming processes in the region. The host rocks of the localities are mostly presented by volcanic sediments and volcanic and subvolcanic facies of latite, quartzlatite, andesite, basalt and their pyroclastics (ignimbrites, tuffs and breccias)
