  1. Introduction. Porphyry copper deposits contain up to t of gold and are among the largest reservoirs of gold in the upper crust (Kerrich et al., ).They are commonly surrounded by deposits and country rock containing gold that is thought to have been derived from them (Jones, ).Gold can be removed from porphyry copper systems by vapors that separate at high . For example, development of major porphyry copper deposits/districts is favored by the presence of clustered alteration-mineralization centers, mafic or massive carbonate host rocks, voluminous magmatic-hydrothermal breccias, low sulfidation-state core zones conducive to copper deposition as bornite ± digenite, hypogene and supergene sulfide.
