The Bolcana ore deposit (Metaliferi Mountains, western Romania) is a porphyry ore deposit with associated epithermal veins. On the basis of different parageneses, four alteration types were distinguished: potassic, phyllic, argillic and propylitic. The mineralogical and geochemical data and estimated crystallisation temperatures of alteration minerals indicate an evolution of the system from an early period of porphyry type mineralisation (Cu Au) to a late period of low-sulphidation epithermal mineralisation (Au base metal).

Le gisement de Bolcana (monts Métallifères, Roumanie occidentale) est un gisement de type porphyre, associé à des veines épithermales, dans lequel les quatre types d'altération caractéristiques, potassique, phylliteuse, argileuse et propylitique, ont été reconnus à partir des différentes associations minérales rencontrées. Les analyses minéralogiques et géochimiques ainsi que les températures de cristallisation estimées des minéraux d'altération indiquent une évolution du système depuis une période initiale de minéralisation à cuivre-or de type porphyre jusqu'à une minéralisation épithermale à or-métaux de base de type low-sulphidation.
