    The Science Behind Gravity Separation

    Gravity separation has been used for centuries to separate different minerals and metals based on their specific gravity. Some of the earliest recordings of this science in practice are from Ancient Egypt as workers panned for gold in the Nile river. While today’s geology enthusiasts still pan for… Read More

    How Exploding Stars Form Precious Metals + Infographic

    Gold is extra-terrestrial. The precious metals that we look for deep in the Earth’s crust were formed billions of years ago in space. Through cataclysmic events, these metals were transported and settled all over our planet in microscopic concentrations. Effective gold recovery at these low levels is now… Read More

    Optimizing Gold Recovery + Infographic

    Gold can be found almost anywhere on the planet, and the key to recovering it is knowing what type of gold it is. Gold deposits can be grouped into two primary classes: placer deposits, where the gold is exposed from weathering and erosion, and hard rock, where the… Read More
