Quartz veins often fluctuate widely in value with the richest gold ore occurring in pockets or “bonanzas” as they are sometimes called. In some mining districts the bulk of the gold is found in these rich pockets and the rest of the vein may be nearly barren.
It is the combination of high purity gold veins running through white quartz that makes the specimens from this California mine so unique and spectacular. When a high grade pocket of gold is identified it is removed in large chunks cut into slabs and then

In some districts both large and small veins occur. At Randsburg in southern California rich veins were mined underground yielding over one million ounces of gold. These veins are lo ed in and around the town of Randsburg though a few of the vein deposits

7/12/2018& 0183;& 32;The ore is usually brown a metallic iron color or mixed with a large white quartz rock that has very little gold in it. Gold is heavy and highly malleable. Gold will not change color crumble or tarnish and is unaffected by most solvents. Gold is commonly alloyed with silver and other metals.
& 0183;& 32;walls. High-grade ore consists of coarse crystalline or leaf gold intergrown with quartz commonly with no associated sulfide minerals e.g. Nelson and Leicht 1994 . Parts of the alteration zones may contain enough gold to be ore-grade. Sulfides especially

Gold occurs in irregular quartz veins in schist and granitic rocks altered mafic rocks and as gray ore in greenstone. The West Belt has been further divided by some authors into an eastern component composed of an ophiolitic melange and a western component composed of Jurassic rocks of the Copper Hill volcanics Duffield and Sharp 1975; Saleeby 1982; Clark 1964 .
These include arsenic antimony or mercury which may be enriched in the rocks adjacent to the gold ore either within the vein structure or in adjacent country rocks producing a "halo". Grades of gold historically have been in the 13.7 to 17.1 g/tonne range with cut-off around 8.6 g/tonne.
Finding Gold in Quartz Rock. When gold is still encased in quartz rock it is called a gold specimen. These are a real treat for gold prospectors and collectors as well and are often valued at a premium due to their beauty and rarity. Hard rock mining also known as lode mining is obviously the best method for finding gold specimens since you are
Abstract. Extremely rich gold shoots are s tered in the Sixteen To One vein in otherwise almost barren quartz. The main result of this study is the recognition of some structural features that might guide exploration for ore shoots.The Alleghany gold-quartz veins occupy a conjugate system of reverse faults which may have formed due to lateral
Gold mineralisation is associated with two generations of quartz-carbonate veins dipping approximately 20 to 40 W. The first generation consists of ladder-vein sets group IIA preferentially developed in centimetre-scale Fe-rich mesobands whereas the second generation consists of large quartz-carbonate veins group IIB which locally crosscut the entire ore body and extend into the footwall and hanging
Gold is most often found in quartz rock. When quartz is found in gold bearings areas it is possible that gold will be found as well. Quartz may be found as small stones in river beds or in large seams in hillsides. The white color of quartz makes it easy to spot in many environments.

Young Sam Clemens later to be known as Mark Twain came to Nevada and contracted a very bad case of "Gold and Silver Fever". He became a prospector and tromped all over Nevada and California searching for the precious metals. Luckily he was better at writing than finding gold
22/4/2016& 0183;& 32;Gold in quartz is the result of hard rock mining where veins of gold are blasted apart exposing the gold laden quartz within the vein. Gold veins that are so rich in gold that the gold is visible to the naked eye are very rare and veins so rich that they produce the
Gold/Quartz specimens are in a completely different league of their own. Remember the specific gravity of quartz is 2.65 times heavier than water whereas pure gold is 19.3 times heavier than water View more. 1.46 G. Gold Basin AZ. Gold Nugget w-Quartz. $115.25.
Veins form when mineral constituents carried by an aqueous solution within the rock mass are deposited through precipitation. The hydraulic flow involved is usually due to hydrothermal circulation. White veins in dark rock at Imperia Italy. Veins are classically thought of as being the result of growth of crystals on the walls of planar fractures

California Gold vein formation Rich gold quartz ore The ores occur in fissure veins in steeply dipping slates and altered volcanics of Carboniferous and Jurassic age. The deep mines of this county each year for many decades yielded about 2000000 tons of free milling ores and 500000 tons of auriferous copper ores that were treated at the smelters.4.8/5 5K

Veins of gold bearing quartz are well known in California and historically they have produced millions of dollars worth of gold. Their formation and the gold they contain are of interest. Quartz mines are found and worked in a great many counties in California from Siskiyou on the north to San Diego on the south.
In the vicinity of serpentinite wall rocks the three fissure veins at the Oriental mine Alleghany district California contain small high-grade ore shoots carrying hundreds of troy ounces of gold per ton. In addition minable zones of albitized wall-rock granite ore contain an average of 0.2 ounces of gold
The largest gold-quartz vein deposit in British Columbia is the Bralorne-Pioneer which produced in excess of 117 800 kilograms of Au from ore with an average grade of 9.3 g/t. ECONOMIC LIMITATIONS : These veins are usually less than 2m wide and therefore only amenable to underground mining.

& 0183;& 32; 3 Historically gold-rich ore was processed by crushing and mercury amalgamation; soil and stream sediment around historic mining and milling sites may be mercury contaminated. After the late 1800s or early 1900s amalgamation was less common in ore
Various hypotheses exist on how gold is formed as it surfaces in numerous types of volcanic and sedimentary rocks. Gold is mainly found in two types of deposits: lode hard rock veins and placer surface . Lo ing the richest gold bearing areas primarily
