Bakyrchik and Bolshevik both are sediment-hosted disseminated gold deposits. They are located in Eastern Kazakhstan (4 km in distance between deposits) and include in the Western Qalba metallogenic zone. They originated in late Paleozoic age along structured line between palaeocontinents of Kazakhstan and Altai-Mongol.

The purpose of this paper is designation of typomorphic features of gold-bearing arsenopyrite and pyrite minerals, determination of chemical composition of these two sulfides minerals. The arsenopyrite and pyrite are the main objects for analytical study of gold-bearing sulfide minerals, their different textures, morphology of the crystals and aggregates. The studies of ore samples and minerals were carried out by methods of optical microscope, X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence and electron microprobe analyses. The analytical study of sulphide minerals has shown that the arsenopyrite is acicular and tabular, pyrite has three varieties - globular, hexahedral and pentahedral forms in three rock samples of the carbonaceous-terrigenous formation in the deposits.

The carbonaceous siltstone rock material is a disseminated sulfide-rich sedimentary rock from a sediment-hosted gold deposit of Bakyrchik. The Bakyrchik deposit is located in Eastern Kazakhstan, which includes in Qalba gold province. The main purpose of this paper is a demonstration on chemical extraction of heavy metals from the carbonaceous siltstone rock and detection of its elemental concentrations. In the work was used a rock sample from the deposit which is a sericizited carbonaceous-siltstone rock. In sequential extraction method was selected four stages such as water soluble fraction (reaction with deionized water) for extraction of water soluble metals, reducible metal fraction (reaction with hydroxyl ammonium chloride) for extracting all reducible metals, organics and sulfides (reaction with hydrogen peroxide) for dissolution of organics and copper sulfide, and extraction of metal oxides and residual fraction (reaction with aqua regia) for extracting of all remaining metals.

The paper comprises analytical methods for research outlooks. They are X-Ray Diffraction (determination of mineralogical composition), X-Ray Fluorescence (determination of chemical composition) and Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectrometry (determination of heavy metal concentrations).
