Definition: The term "ore" is defined in the current study to describe a concentration of non-metallic, e.g., feldspar, or metallic minerals, e.g. spodumene, in pegmatitic rocks irrespective of its structure and position in the deposit which was or is currently mined for a profit.
Descriptions of major ore deposits world wide. The Fosterville gold deposit is located 20 km to the ENE of Bendigo in north-central Victoria. It comprises fault controlled deposits developed along and adjacent to a series of major, steeply dipping mineralised structures developed as shoots over intervals of up to 8 km.
