· Gold Mining Operation: 10 - 30 years. The gold mining operation stage represents the productive life of a mine, during which ore is extracted and processed into gold. Processing involves transforming rock and ore into a metallic alloy of substantial purity – known as doré – typically containing between 60-90% gold.
As the above mentioned, gold ore is rich in Saudi Arabia and the copper ore is also abundant in this country. Copper ore is mined from copper rock mountains. After processing, it can be the high grade copper or copper ore sands. The copper ore can be divided into pyrite, chalcopyrite, barite, chalcocite, blue copper, copper blue and malachite etc.

Industry standards typically place iron ore lumps into the size range of 6 to 31 mm, and iron ore fines at particles of less than 6 mm. The iron content of the fines is typically above 60%. Application Iron ore is the raw material used to make pig iron, which is one.
From the perspective of metallurgical processing, gold ores can be classified into free-milling and refractory ores. Their extractive metallurgy are largely driven by mineralogical factors such as: gold particle size, association with
· Finally, uranium (U), a radioactive substance of moderate acute toxicity, 57 is found in South African gold ore in concentrations of around 100–300 ppm. Mining of U-bearing ore often releases and mobilises high concentrations of the radionuclide in the biosphere.
Steps Involved in the Determination of Bioleaching Potential of Gold-Bearing Ores or Concentrates. Gold ores are classified "free-milling" and "refractory" based on their response to cyanide dissolution. Bioprocessing can be used to treat refractory gold-bearing sulfide ores as well as carbonaceous gold …
· Processing and separation of the gold nuggets would be done in any of the processing plant stated in the body of the report. The business would entail using mechanized method of mining to produce 200 tons per month of gold rocks in which minimum of 20 grams of gold per ton will be extracted from the final milled rocks which will finally be 4000 grams.
· If we have to know about gold assay, it is important to mention the Fire Assay Process that has been employed in the mining industry for a long time. Basically the ore is mixed with a mixture of fluxes and during the smelting process precious metals are liberated and most of heavy metals are trapped by the fluxes.

Gold, recognizable by its yellowish cast, is one of the oldest metals used by humans. As far back as the Neolithic period, humans have collected gold from stream beds, and the actual mining of gold can be traced as far back as 3500 B.C., when early Egyptians (the Sumerian culture of Mesopotamia) used mined gold to craft elaborate jewelry, religious artifacts, and utensils such as goblets.
The principal gold minerals that affect the processing of gold ores are native gold, electrum, Au-Ag tellurides, aurostibite, maldonite, and auricupride. In addition, submicroscopic (solid solution) gold, principally in arsenopyrite and pyrite, is also important. The main causes of refractory gold ores are submicroscopic gold, the Au-Ag tellurides, and very fine-grained gold (<10 µm) locked ...

· The gold industry has recovered to some degree after a rollercoaster ride in previous years. But a looming gold reserve crisis will require a renewed strategic stance. The gold industry today finds itself at an inflection point between the recent era of cost-out initiatives and balance sheet deleveraging, and an increasing need to focus on growth and the replenishment of depleting gold reserves.
The Assosa gold deposit is just one of the many yet untapped sources of gold that could easily put Ethiopia in the top 5 gold producing countries in the world. Concerning gemstones, opal leads the pack with over 98% by exports value and almost all are exported in their rough form, due to the lack of a developed industry.

The process of heap leaching extracts gold from ore by piling up crushed ore and applying a leaching agent to permeate through the pile, separating the gold from the ore. While this method has been used for decades with success, it has been greatly improved by the addition of an agglomeration drum to the process before the heap.
