      I know how hard it is to move away from a patch that has been good to ya. I think almost all the gold deposits N.W. Nevada at lower elevations are epithermal deposits.Your question is not a simple one to answer. but most of the gold and quartz around these suggest epithermal deposits. there are a few scattered ancient placers too. Some very high on the hillsides.
      I have been researching it for years too. Ive found coarse gold with or near smooth slugs with at first no obviously apparent rime or reason. Ive found some right next to the source vein. I know because the gold is cut ya coarse but just below the coarse nuggets soon turn into very smooth larger slugs having never traveled that far. 50 to 100 yards?
      The answer, I think I know. glaciers and/or catastrophic flooding plowing down through there. and the coarse nuggets, more recent erosion since the last glaciers..Ive seen some large nuggets come out of epithermal deposits. over 23 oz's. from claims I was working on.
