black relevance of exploration to alluvial mining

Prospecting and exploration of placer deposits

 · The productive bed can only be delimited by sampling during exploration or mining. The placer bottom is usually uneven, steeply dipping with scours and pockets. Mineral grains are poorly segregated, while intergrowths and nuggets are frequent. Eluviocolluvial placers and alluvial placers of ravines, dells and short brooks belong in this class.

How To Mine Gold

Black Sand Gold Mining. Black sand gold mining in New Zealand is an extension of alluvial gold mining as the gold and black sands are usually found together in the rivers. As both are washed down the river they form areas of high concentration where the river meets the sea.

Gold

Further mining took place in 1909–13 and 1934, and sporadic alluvial mining and fossicking continues to the present. Alluvial gold was mainly found at the base of poorly sorted fluvial sediments within paleochannels overlying Adelaidean Tapley Hill Formation shale and siltstone that host minor auriferous quartz–carbonate–sulfide veins.
