Overall comment

Overall comment
The Mulatos deposit is a large epithermal, high sulfidation or acid sulfate, disseminated gold deposit hosted within a mid-Tertiary dacitic to rhyodacitic volcanic dome complex. Gold mineralization is closely associated with silicic and advanced argillic alteration occurring near the upper contact of a rhyodacite porphyry and in overlying dacite flows and volcaniclastic rocks. Gold occurs in oxide, mixed oxide/sulfide, and sulfide ore types, with pyrite as the primary sulfide mineral. The deposit is amenable to cyanidation in all ore types, but gold extraction decreases with decreasing levels of oxidation.
