Abstract

Orpiment, As2S3, containing up to 1.5 percent antimony has been recognized in carbonaceous arsenic-rich gold ores in the unoxidized East ore body of the Carlin gold deposit. Associated hydrothermal minerals include realgar (AsS) and quartz. Stibnite, commonly associated with realgar in the ores, has not been observed associated with this type of orpiment.
