Abstract


Iourirne gold deposit is located in Tagragra of Akka inlier, 260 km to the southeast of Agadir, (Western Anti-Atlas). The gold mineralization occurs in quartz veins associated with shear zones occurring in East-West direction and cut across the Early forming process of Neoproterozoic formations. This study aims to characterize supergene alteration characterization of Iourirne gold mineralization, by macroscopic, microscopic observations, chemical analysis of major elements, analysis of the correlation matrix and analysis in Principal Components (PCA). The main results are as follows: - The mobility of a number of chemical elements such as Ti, Fe, P, Ca, Mg, Mn. - The development of Hematitization phenomenon of supergene origin. - The abundance of metallic minerals such as magnetite, hematite, covellite, malachite, azurite and sphalerite… - The oxidation of sulphides including arsenopyrite, pyrite, chalcopyrite…

Author Keywords: Supergene alteration, Gold bearing quartz, Iourirne, Anti-Atlas.


Abstract: (french)


Le gisement aurifère d’Iourirne est situé à 260 km au Sud-Est d’Agadir, dans la boutonnière du Tagragra d'Akka (Anti-Atlas occidental). La minéralisation aurifère se présente dans des filons quartzeux à texture bréchique, associés à des zones de cisaillement de direction E-W et recoupant les formations du protérozoïque inférieur. Cette étude a pour but la caractérisation de l’altération supergène des filons aurifères d’Iourirne, par les observations macroscopiques, microscopiques, les analyses chimiques des éléments majeurs, l’analyse de la matrice de corrélation et l’analyse en Composantes Principales (ACP). Les principaux résultats sont les suivants : - La mobilité d’un certain nombre d’élément chimique tels que Ti, Fe, P, Ca, Mg, Mn. - Le développement de phénomène d’hématitisation d’origine supergène. - L’abondance des minéraux métalliques tel que la magnétite, l’hématite, la covellite, la malachite, l’azurite, la sphalérite… - L’oxydation importante des sulfures notamment l’arsénopyrite, la pyrite, la chalcopyrite...
