Abstract [en]

The Fabodtjarn lode gold deposit is located in the Vindelgransele area, in the Skellefte District, in northern Sweden. The mineralization consists of a quartz vein system hosted in a sequence of turbiditic greywackes and pelitic sedimentary rocks, situated 20-30 meters above the contact with a granodiorite sill. The aim of the study is to better understand the genesis and controls on ore at Fabodtjarn and improve exploration guides for the area. Gold deposits have been known in the Skellefte District for over a century. However, there is an ongoing debate whether some of these deposits are intrusion-related or orogenic gold. Several gold deposits in the Vindelgransele area are spatially associated with intrusive rocks. There might thus be a genetic link between the Fabodtjarn deposit and the intrusion, or the intrusive rocks have simply acted as structural traps during compressional stress conditions.
