  • Where sericite is dominant, the alteration is called sericitic alteration.

    The Economic Aspect of Geology

  • The chloritic phases are usually farther from the ore deposit than the sericitic phases, indicating less intense and probably cooler conditions of deposition.

    The Economic Aspect of Geology

  • The lowest bed of a calcarous sericitic schist [9] is four feet thick and underlies a bed of schistose lime stone [10] six feet in thickness, which is in turn covered by a finely laminated phyllite,

    The Long Labrador Trail

  • The silicified sericitic and chloritic schists are here filled with quartz stringers and lenticles, both the quartz and portions of the schists being auriferous.

    North Carolina and its Resources.

  • The rocks are argillaceous, sericitic and chloritic, metamorphosed slates and schists, sedimentary pre Jura-trias slates, and ancient devitrified volcanic rocks.

    North Carolina and its Resources.

  • The ore bodies consist of masses of chloritic and sericitic schists, intermixed with pyrite and chalcopyrite.

    North Carolina and its Resources.

  • The gold is associated with sulphides, sericitic alteration and minor quartz veinlets although the open-pittable resource is largely oxidised.

    Reuters: Press Release

  • Alteration is typical of gold porphyry deposits as exemplified by a potassic-calcic core surrounded by sericitic, intermediate argillic, and propyllitic alteration zones.

  • The metasediments include greywacke, siltstones, sericitic and chlorite schist, and graphite schist.
