Extracting the Metal
Gold is a natural element that is found across the globe however, it needs to be mined and refined to become pure. Gold deposits are recovered in varying forms of mining such as hard-rock mining and placer mining. Hard-rock mining involves the extraction of gold that is encased in rock, rather than loose sediment. Most of the gold produced globally is produced through this type of mining. In placer mining, gold is recovered from loose silt, such as that found in stream beds. Prospectors find placer gold extraction to be far more lucrative and to have reduced operational costs. Instant Gold Refining has grown to become one of Canada’s largest buyers/refiners of placer gold and gold nuggets.
