Origin of Material

The material for this standard was sourced from the Otjikoto Gold Mine owned by B2Gold Namibia. The Otjikoto Gold deposit is located within the Damara Mobile Belt, which forms part of the Pan-African Mobile Belt system. The Otjikoto Gold mine is located about 300 km north of Windhoek, in Otjozondjupa province, in Namibia.

Approximate Mineral and Chemical Composition

The Otjikoto project is located within the Neoproterozoic Damara mobile belt, which forms part of the Pan–African mobile belt system. The deposit falls under the general classification of an orogenic gold deposit and occurs in a similar stratigraphic position as the Navachab gold mine deposit. The Otjikoto deposit lithology has been divided into three principal mineralized lithostratigraphic units, from top to base, the OTC, OTB, and OTA. The OTC albitite-hornfels unit hosts most of the mineralised vein system and is underlain by a distinct marker horizon, the unmineralised OTB calcitic marble. Gold in the main Otjikoto deposit is hosted by a north-north-east-striking sheeted sulphide (+ magnetite) –quartz and carbonate vein system. Gold occurs within the vein system as coarse native gold with a size variation from 5microns to 4000 microns. It occurs adjacent to and within sulphides, garnets on the edges of amphiboles and chlorite, as free gold in quartz and carbonates.
