Gold mining equipment
The treatment of gold ores, in particular the competing technologies and their relative advantages and economics, has always been a major focus within JXSC Mine Machinery’s engineers.
There are many factors that can impact on the recovery of gold, it is difficult to develop a universal characterization applicable to all gold-bearing rocks. However, with more than 30 years of rich experience and unique knowledge in gold ore processing area, JXSC Mine Machinery have developed some useful frameworks for different kinds of gold ores.
One-stop alluvial gold mining solution
The major ores of gold contain gold in its native form and are both exogenetic (formed at the Earth’s surface) and endogenetic (formed within the Earth). 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.
They were the type most commonly mined in antiquity.
And of the world’s known mineral reserves of gold ore, 50 percent is found in South Africa, and most of the rest is divided among Russia, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and the United States. The largest single gold ore body in the world is in the Witwatersrand of South Africa.
JXSC has rich experience in processing those alluvial gold ores, and we have successfully designed and deployed several gold wash plants for our customers around the world, and especially for processing plants located in Africa, we have designed a special processing flowsheet to fit the characteristic of gold ores, like the alluvial gold ores with sticky clay.
