Alluvial Gold Ore Processing Equipment

Alluvial Gold Deposit

The major ores of gold contain gold in its native form and are both exogenetic and endogenetic. The best-known of the exogenetic ores is alluvial gold. Alluvial gold refers to gold found in riverbeds, streambeds, and floodplains. It is invariably elemental gold and usually made up of very fine particles. Alluvial gold deposits are formed through the weathering actions of wind, rain, and temperature change on rocks containing gold.

Alluvial Gold Ore Processing Equipment

Alluvial mining is technically simpler than hard-rock mining. Alluvial gold occurs as loose particles in the gravel, and is therefore easy to separate because of the high density of the gold. A wide variety of techniques have been tried over time, but all techniques focus on water-washing of the gold-bearing gravel in some way.

We have been specialized in gold crushing, grinding, mining and processing technology for several decades. With know-how technology, we have developed complete range of alluvial gold ore processing equipment for sale including gold crushing plant, gold milling machine, screening plant, separation machine, spiral classifier, gravity separator, flotation machine, benefication equipment etc.

Alluvial Gold Panning Machine

The easy and simplest technique to extract gold from placer ore is panning. In panning, the extracted ore is put in a large metal or plastic pan, combined with a generous amount of water, and agitated so that the gold particles, being of higher density than the other material, settle to the bottom of the pan.

The lighter gangue material such as sand, mud and gravel are then washed over the side of the pan, leaving the gold behind. Once a placer deposit is located by gold panning, the miner usually shifts to equipment that can treat volumes of sand and gravel more quickly and efficiently.
