Gold - Virtual Microscope

2021-12-15  Gold. Gold is a dense, unreactive metal, which does not naturally form compounds with many other elements. As a result, it is usually found in its elemental or native state. It occurs in veins in rocks or as weathered-out grains that have become concentrated in river-based sediments called ‘placers’, that are rich in heavy minerals.

How Do You Identify Silver Ore? - Reference

2020-3-25  This is done by heating the rock and submerging it in water. If metals float to the surface in the form of dark grime, then silver ore could be present in the rock. Additionally, because it is rarely found by itself in nature, keeping an eye out for certain minerals that tend to accompany silver can also help in finding and identifying the ore.
