Tracing of Gold Mines
Indias domestic gold production was at 3.05 tonnes during the financial year 2006. The low production of gold have adversely affected the economy of the country and the government has asked domestic gold miners to actively survey joint venture with foreign companies to speed up exploration of the yellow metal within the country. In India, identification of gold bearing zones is done by gathering rock chip specimens from favourable places for gold mineralisation while planning the geological chart of the region. In case the rocks are not exposed stream sediment sampling method is implemented to spot the gold anomalous areas.
