Extracting gold from rocks looks like such a chore and a bore. But that is if you are not exactly interested in mining or prospecting for gold. However, if you are, you will find that it is a great hobby, despite the work involved. Best of all, it is rewarding. To wrap it up, there are two methods you can use to extract gold from rock.
Riffles separate heavy and light particles. Gold recovery with sluices can vary depending on several factors. Fine gold losses can be minimized by cleaning up more frequently, reducing the speed of the slurry flow to around 0.50 to 0.80 m/s., and decreasing the feed size by performing a previous screening.
Removing the gold bearing 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 pieces no larger than road gravel.
