Gold Mining. Gold is a chemical component with the symbol Au that springs up from the Latin derivative aurum that means shining dawn and with the atomic number 79. It is a very sought-after valuable metal which, for many centuries, has been utilized as wealth. The metal resembles as nuggets or grain like structures in rocks, subversive "veins" and in alluvial deposits. It is one of the currency metals.

Gold Geoscience Australia

There are both open-cut and underground gold mines in Australia but most of Australia's gold production comes from open-cut mines. Earth-moving equipment is used to remove waste rock from above the ore body and then to mine the ore. Waste and ore are blasted to break them into sizes suitable for handling and transport to waste dumps or, in the case of the ore, to the crusher.

Gold mining Wikipedia

Gold panning is mostly a manual technique of separating gold from other materials. Wide, shallow pans are filled with sand and gravel that may contain gold. The pan is submerged in water and shaken, sorting the gold from the gravel and other material. As gold is much denser than rock, it quickly settles to the bottom of the pan.

Gold Geoscience Australia

Most gold mined in Australia today cannot be seen with the naked eye. It is very fine grained and mostly has a concentration of less than five grams in every tonne of rock mined. Primary gold deposits are formed from gold-bearing fluids at sites where the chemistry and physical characteristics permit gold deposition. Gold that is liberated through weathering is concentrated in alluvial (placer) deposits such

Teetulpa Goldfield, South Australia's most productive goldfield, produced ~3132 kg of alluvial gold, mainly between 1886 and 1889. Further mining took place in 1909–13 and 1934, and sporadic alluvial mining and fossicking continues to the present. Alluvial gold was mainly found at the base of poorly sorted fluvial sediments within paleochannels overlying Adelaidean Tapley Hill Formation shale and siltstone that host minor auriferous quartz–carbonate–sulfide veins. The main gold
