Yuerya gold deposit, lying in the Eastern of Hebei Province, China, is the typical one of the gold deposits related to Mesozoic granite and forming under the action of low-middle hydrothermal liquids, in which pyrite-muscovite-quartz mineralization is an important indicator to gold. Chemical composition of muscovite from this deposit was investigated with synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence (SRXRF) in this article. It is showed that the muscovite contains many elements including K, Ca, Rb, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Zn, An, Ag, Pt and As. Correlation factor analyses of these elements show that gold is not only correlated with muscovite composition elements, but also correlated with Pt and As which are with no correlation to the muscovite composition elements, which show gold in muscovite has two existing formations and at less two different resources. Mineralization resources is commonly considered as magma hydrothermal liquid, but platinum firstly found in Yuerya gold deposit, supports the idea of gold mineralization partly related with mantle - derived material.
