According to their geological environments, altered minerals and fluid chemistry, the epithermal deposits can be classified into two types: low-sulfidation type and high-sulfidation type (Bonham, 1986; White and Hedenquist, 1990, 1995; Hedenquist et al., 1998; Hedenquist et al., 2000), also known as adularia-sericite type and alunite-kaolinite type, respectively (Heald et al., 1987;Arribas, 1995; Hedenquist et al., 1998).As one ofimportant type of gold deposits in the world, epithermal gold deposits have provided more than 6000 tons of gold reserve (Kerrich et al., 2000), which are mainly located in the metallogenic domain of the Circum-Pacific, Mediterranean-Himalaya and paleo-Asian (Chen et al., 2001; Jiang et al., 2004; Sillitoe, 2008; Hao et al., 2016).
