FINGOLD is a public-domain geoscience database containing all bedrock gold deposits and significant gold prospects in Finland. The database is in ACCESS® format and presently (16 Feb 2009) it contains information on 206 occurrences. Included are both gold-only types and cases where gold is the main commodity. To be included, a prospect must contain at least 1 ppm Au (i.e. 1 g/t) for a 1 m section or at least 0.5 ppm Au for a 5 m section across the mineralisation in bedrock. All significant aspects of the deposits and prospects, especially aspects concerning exploration, are covered by seven internally linked tables in the database. Entries contain references to all published literature and other primary sources of data. For any occurrence, there may be information in up to 187 data fields in the data base. In addition, more than 1200 images, > 60 tables on mineral and whole-rock analytical data, and >360 primary reports and other complete publications have been linked to the data base.
FINGOLD as 16 Feb 2009 in Access® format and images and tables hyperlinked to the data base are in this CD. The contents of the database and the hyperlinked images, tables and reports are also accessible on the Internet through the exploration pages of the Geological Survey of Finland (http://en.gtk.fi/ExplorationFinland/).
