question on geothermal gold

Recommended Posts

I recently saw a video on Liberty, Wa gold by Nick Zentner.His explanation was geothermal gold intersected calcite at a shale boundary and that's where the gold precipitated out.

I was wondering if the makeup of the solution that had the gold is known or if it might be something like natural  aqua regia, where the calcite and shale(iron) could have dropped the gold out or was there something else in play. Just curious because some of the gold is embedded in calcite.
