4 Where Gold Comes From, Part II

Where Gold Comes From, Part II

Posted on February 5, 2013 by team

Last time we started to tell you how gold is mined in the Akmola region of  Kazakhstan. This time we are going to show how the precious metal is mined in East Kazakhstan by another company and what is needed to get a gold bar with weight of twelve kilograms (26.45 pounds).

As opposed to the place we described last time, here gold is mined underground. The mine was opened in 1786 and gave a name to a small town where miners’ families have already been living for the second century.

    There is less gold per person on the planet than any other time in history

      The amount of gold on the planet has not changed since it was formed.
      You just have more people per/unit of gold.

    If you’re interested, there is now a television show on the History Channel called Yukon Gold. It shows how some surface miners go about mining gold in Canada’s North.

    Pretty interesting.
