Extraction of gold

The lifecycle of a gold mine. People in hard hats working underground is what often comes to mind when thinking about how gold is mined. Yet mining the ore is just one stage in a long and complex gold mining process. Long before any gold can be extracted, significant exploration and development needs to take place, both to determine, as accurately as possible, the size of the deposit as well

    We all know that gold comes from mines. These gold mines go several hundred meters below the surface of the earth. It is here that miners look for gold in its natural form – in lode deposits or vein deposits - which are concentrations of gold and other metals in the cracks of rock. The process used to extract gold involves strategically drilling and blasting rocks
