First couple of days at our new hard rock gold mine in Oregon. Initial drilling, gathering ore and a little processing of it back at the storage facility until our trailor is completed to process on site. Seems we got better results by just drilling small holes in the wall then panning rather than running full buckets from large amounts of ore we got off the walls. To be continued....

The Secret World Of Gold | Gold Mining - Geographic History. It is impossible to know the exact date that humans first began to mine gold, but some of the oldest known gold artifacts were found in the Varna Necropolis in Bulgaria. The graves of the necropolis were built between 4700 and 4200 BC, indicating that gold mining could be at least 7000 years old. A group of German and Georgian archaeologists claims the Sakdrisi site in southern Georgia, dating to the 3rd or 4th millennium BC, may be the world's oldest known gold mine.

In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

Many people who may have difficulty to identify the gold in the rock, because gold is usually often confused with the kind of carrier minerals pyrite , chalcopyrite, pyrhotite, pentlandit and gold-colored mica, because the mineral carrier is very similar to a vein of gold ore. consequence of the existence of native gold movements in the earth's heat or thermal. Where the size of microcrystalline gold ore minerals are below 150 microns to 0.8 microns and fatherly look of metal ore we need a tool microscope. Microcrystalline gold deposits are generally found in the primary. Gold grains are disseminated in a gangue of quartz and intergrown or locked in sulfide minerals. Coarse grains can be liberated by crushing and grinding followed by gravity concentration using a concentrator. If the ore consists of very fine grains extraction with a mixture of sodium cyanide to extract metal ore fatherly. Submicro crystalline gold particles and typically occur in the crystal lattice of certain sulfide ores. Gold contained in sulfide minerals present as small grains and particles in the crystal lattice of minerals. Many primary deposit consists of grains and disseminated in pyrite, chalcopyite, arsenopyrite or pyrrhotite containing large amounts of gold and intergrown with gangue minerals. Sulfide minerals can not be concentrated by gravity methods because the gravity is very low for gold sulfide. Froth flotation is the most common technique used to process the content of ore minerals in these rocks, followed by using sodium cyanide to remove gold. Mining techniques such methods are expensive and can only be used on large deposits, but has a low value to support the Processing Activities Visit Our Blog : http://miningeducation.blogspot.com/

There are two mining methods for placer gold ore, dry mining and wet mining. Dry mining method commonly used for the slope deposits as well as the continental deposit which the useful minerals exist in shallow ground and without rich groundwater. Usually use mining excavators, bulldozers, loaders, dump trucks and other engineering equipment to complete excavation and transportation, but according to the actual situation may be adopt belt conveyors or spiral conveyors instead of dump truck to complete transportation operations.

Made by Arthur Barr, this short film shows some of the technologies used by prospectors to find gold in the 1849 California Gold Rush. At 2:00, a prospector shows how a pan is used to sift river sand in search of gold flakes. At 2;24 a claim is staked out with a claim post. At 3:30 a rocker or cradle is made to sift gravel. At 3:53, wooden bars called riffers and a hopper to hold the sand and gravel are created from wood. At 4:40 the operation of the hopper is shown. At 6:17 a Long Tom sluice is shown, which used the power of the river to separate the sand and gold from the gravel, with gold trapped behind the riffle bars. At 8:00 gold flecks are recovered from the Long Tom via a pan. At 8:30, a series of riffle boxes are placed together to form a sluice box -- the best of all placer mining tools. Placer mining is the mining of stream bed (alluvial) deposits for minerals. This may be done by open-pit (also called open-cast mining) or by various surface excavating equipment or tunnelling equipment. Placer mining is frequently used for precious metal deposits (particularly gold) and gemstones, both of which are often found in alluvial deposits—deposits of sand and gravel in modern or ancient stream beds, or occasionally glacial deposits. The metal or gemstones, having been moved by stream flow from an original source such as a vein, are typically only a minuscule portion of the total deposit. Since gems and heavy metals like gold are considerably more dense than sand, they tend to accumulate at the base of placer deposits. It is important to note that placer deposits can be as young as a few years old, such as the Canadian Queen Charlotte beach gold placer deposits, or billions of years old like the Elliott Lake uranium paleoplacer within the Huronian Supergroup in Canada. The containing material in an alluvial placer mine may be too loose to safely mine by tunnelling, though it is possible where the ground is permanently frozen. Where water under pressure is available, it may be used to mine, move, and separate the precious material from the deposit, a method known as hydraulic mining, hydraulic sluicing or hydraulicking.

A company whose principal activities consist of exploration for mineral, oil or gas may not progress to the next stage of development or to a stage where it is able to generate revenue. Minerals companies are amongst the top stocks on SGX, with an annual turnover velocity of more than 280%, a rate which is many more than times that of the typical stock. Gold holds a special allure for investors as it is a precious metal and a store of value. This seminar will touch of the risks of exploration & development of gold mineral deposits, including the various broad categories of goal mineral deposits and methods for development and extraction. Join our speaker Mark Berry (geologist), as he covers an overview of geology, exploration, development and extraction of iron ore and nickel, with emphasis on the risks that investors need to know about.

RimWorld Science: Exploratory Mining — RimWorld Alpha 16/Alpha 17 Mining SCIENCE!!! (How to find steel, components, and other resources quickly and efficiently) *** WHAT RIMWORLD MECHANIC SHOULD WE INVESTIGATE NEXT? LEAVE YOUR SUGGESTION IN THE COMMENTS! *** ==== Subscribe, so you don't miss the next one: http://goo.gl/pqSzho Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Bjorn_Strongarm ===== There are several ‘metallic’ resources in RimWorld: Steel, Plasteel, Components, Silver, Gold, Uranium, and Jade. There are several ways to get these in RimWorld, such as trading or deep drilling. But sometimes you just want to dig away at some rock and find them there! In this episode of RimWorld Science, we look at a few techniques for finding these resources efficiently while mining. First, we have a look at the distribution of resources across maps. There is a LOT of information to be had, and you can download my raw data below. We learn first that, unsurprisingly, mountainous maps have more resources than large hills, which have more than small hills, which in turn has more than flat maps. (Surprise, surprise.) But more importantly, we learn that resources tend to come in chunks of well-delimited size. The steel chunks average at about 30 tiles, and the components average at about 4.5 tiles. They also tend to come as `blobs’, rather than `veins’, which means that most (but not all) component chunks cover a 2x2 square, and on average steel chunks cover most or all of a 5x5 square. This allows us to use a `ladder’ mining technique that exposes quite a lot of space fairly efficiently. If we are looking for a resource in an n-by-n chunk, we make a series of mine shafts, which have n+2 tiles between each one. Then each shaft has spurs coming off. On one side, the spurs need to have 2n+3 tiles between them. On the other side there’s the same distance, but the spurs need to be staggered so that the spur on the left is halfway between the two on the right, and vice versa. This creates a pattern that will expose at least one tile of every nxn square between the two shafts, and so will let us find resources much faster than simply putting down a lot of straight lines. ===== Want to crunch my numbers? Raw data is here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/2cud7kgc72ca91y/RimWorld_Map_Resources_Raw_Data.csv ===== RimWorld follows three survivors from a crashed space liner as they build a colony on a frontier world at the rim of known space.

Alba Mineral Resources PLC (LON:ALBA) updates investors on progress on its portfolio of mining and oil projects. Alba Executive Chairman George Frangeskides gives Proactive London a comprehensive run down on progress at Horse Hill, Clogau, Limmerick and Greenland projects. Among highlights are ongoing activities towards the re-opening of the Clogau-St Davids gold mine, the UK's largest historical gold producer, as well as an extensive regional exploration programme which will shortly be commencing across the Dolgellau gold belt. This work will involve the collection of up to 3,000 samples covering about 50 per cent of the total extent of the gold belt. “By the use of systematic, modern exploration techniques, our objective is to unearth one or more gold deposits to rival the Clogau-St Davids mine,” said Frangeskides. Meanwhile, in Ireland, one or more zinc targets will be drilled later in the spring. And in Greenland, Alba has completed an important technical study in relation to the Inglefield polymetallic project. “We remain very positive about all of our Greenland projects, and intend to continue to be one of the prime movers and explorers in that vast, mineral-rich country,” said Frangeskides.

We were very fortunate to be afforded the opportunity to visit this historic site as it is certainly not open to the public... Aside from the colorful personality of Mr. Randy Yager, we were also treated to an extensive tour of a rich - and still producing - lode gold mine (And not a dull visit of the “stay behind the white lines” variety that would be found on the tourist circuit either). As viewers of this channel know, it is rare for us to encounter very much in the way of historical mining equipment and artifacts at an abandoned mine. Many abandoned mines have had much of their equipment and other treasures carted away by the miners themselves when the mine was abandoned. Over the following decades, “collectors” carry away pretty much everything else that can be lifted and hauled away… Not at this mine though! At this mine, we get to see what a functioning gold mine looks like – one that was a medium-sized, mine-to-mill operation several decades ago and that now might as well be a living museum from that era. The shower room/work shop/drill room/bunkhouse/compressor room and the mill could use a little paint and some duct tape before they would be in pristine condition again, but we can still see all of the equipment in them as it was when this mine was in full operation and see exactly how things worked back then. I love the underground time, but I found that “moment frozen in time” experience on the surface to be fascinating. You’ve got to think that they were still actively mining here up into the 1960s when gold was $35 an ounce and the miners were able to support themselves on that. So, consider the potential of this mine now if it were to be brought back up to maximum production! With the background noise and different people talking, it can be hard to hear him sometimes, but if you listen carefully, Randy provides a lot of information about this mine. I tried to include as much of him discussing the mine as I could, but I had almost two hours of video that needed to be whittled down to make it digestible for the short attention span of many (but certainly not all) YouTube viewers. It was interesting (to me at least) to hear that the miners had simply tunneled past badly caved sections in the mine rather than deal with the hassle of trying to rehab these sketchy sections. I wasn’t clear if the 3,000+ feet that the adit ran past the waste rock pile where Cory and I climbed up the raise was just caved in one section or if essentially all of it was caved. I believe it was one section, but I’m not certain of that. As you may have heard, aside from the thousands of feet that the main haulage adit kept running, there were also four levels above us in the haulage adit and several levels below us. So, this is a pretty extensive mine. I’d imagine there could be some pretty good stuff to see in these other sections. It would have been wonderful to spend a whole day here, but when you’re someone’s guest, you move at their pace. Thank you again, Cory and Randy, for this adventure. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference.

However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Often artisanal gold miners use mercury to separate gold from other minerals. The GEF is funding a more sustainable way to do this work, protecting workers health and the environment from this highly toxic substance.

We experiment with five different acids to clean rocks and gold specimens from the Blue Chip Mine. We are trying to see which does the best job in creating a great looking gold on quartz specimen. We use Iron out, CLR, Oxalic acid, Muriatic acid (Hydrochloric acid) and nitric acid in this experiment. Warning! I do not recommend you try this yourself as I do not know your knowledge, skill, or safety levels.

Today we went hard rock gold mining. This is basically the method of going deep into a tunnel, chipping away at the rock, before crushing it and panning for gold. We certainly did find plenty of gold!
