each process relies on the initial grinding of the gold ore and more than one process may be used on the same batch of gold ore. mining 1 in lode or vein deposits the gold is mixed with another mineral often quartz in a vein that has filled a split in the surrounding rocks. they then remove the gold ore from the surrounding rock. the

2009223&ensp·&enspremoving the goldbearing rock from the ground is just the first step. to isolate pure gold mining companies use a complex extraction process. the first step in this process is breaking down large chunks of rock into smaller pieces. at a mill large machines known as crushers reduce the ore to
the geology of gold. (molten rock) intruded into the earth's crust within about 2 to 5 miles of the surface. active geothermal systems which are exploited in parts of the united states for natural hot water and steam provide a modern analog for these golddepositing systems. in the mountainbuilding process sedimentary and volcanic

2014622&ensp·&enspfinally once the rock is fully crushed we get to the part about separating out the gold from the crushed rock. often this is accomplished simply by very careful panning. panning is the most suitable method if you only have an amount of rock less than about 15 or 20 pounds.
2019111&ensp·&enspgold as it occurs in nature is never pure. occasionally the amount of alloying metal is less than 1% hut as a general rule it is greater the commonest alloy in fact the invariable one being composed of gold and silver.
gold cyanide is adsorbed into the pores of activated carbon resulting in a process solution that is devoid of gold. the loaded carbon is heated by a strong solution of hot caustic and cyanide to reverse the adsorption process and strip the carbon of gold. gold is then removed from the
2019111&ensp·&enspthe large pieces of ore (broken rock) are fed into a series of crushers and grinding mills to break down the ore into much smaller sized rock so that the gold can be more easily extracted. at this stage of the process the ore is ground down to fine sandlike particles.
extraction of gold by the amalgam process. the amalgam process is the oldest technical method of extracting gold and was used in antiquity. with the amalgam process the gold bearing rock is likewise crushed to fine sand. afterwards mercury is added to the rock dust. gold has the property that enables it to join to the surface of the mercury.
