Gold deposits rich in bismuth minerals: An important

Abstract. Several gold deposits, both in China and abroad, are drawing attention because of their abundant bismuth minerals. Comparative studies on some of them indicate that certain characteristics can aid in identifying standards and exploration criteria of the type of gold deposits.

General Types of Gold Ores: Gold deposits are often classified according to their association. The first of these may be catalogued as quartzose. This implies that the gangue mineral is acid, that is, quartz, and that fluorite may abound, or even the other gangue minerals of the alkaline earth group.

Hard Rock Mining vs. Placer Gold Mining

Gold is found in two ways; as hard rock sources within ore, and as placer deposits where the gold has separated from its host material. Most prospectors today prefer placer mining because they can use simple tools like gold pans and sluice boxes, but don't overlook hard rock sources either!

These deposits usually occur beneath barriers like a rock layer, forests, or oceans, which makes accessing them difficult. Depending on how these ores are extracted, mining methods can be categorized as 'surface' or 'underground' types. In surface mining, the rock barrier on top of the deposit is removed to access the ore.
