Mineralogical–geochemical studies have shown that gold from the Plavica high sulfidation epith�
ermal deposit (Republic of Macedonia) contains an admixture of Fe and Cu, that the morphology of gold
indicates the proximity of the primary source, and that the chemical composition of gold is independent of
its morphology. The composition of gold and its morphology are the direct searching criteria, indicating the
genetic type of mineralization. Pan sampling and the subsequent study of the typomorphism of gold may serve
as an effective method for searching for epithermal high sulfidation deposits. Pan sampling allows us to distin�
guish and study in detail the chemical composition and morphology of native gold from deposits of this type.
