high-country-goldGold ore is obtained from a variety of ores. Most people think a lot of gold comes from nuggets. But the truth is that very little comes from actual gold nuggets. Practically all newly mined gold comes from ores and gold quartz mined from the natural rock ore that carries gold in tiny, even microscopic particles. Gold is often the native metal that is encased within quartz specimens and other sulphide minerals. Sometimes the gold is in a finely divided state. Throughout history, vein deposits were the most productive, these widely dispersed deposits currently yield much of the world's gold.
