El Dorado Rand Gold Mining Claim - Nevada - 2017
The El Dorado-Rand Mine is located in the Eldorado Mining District just outside of Searchlight, Nevada. The mine was worked primarily for native, or free-milling gold deposits with silver as a byproduct. The El Dorado-Rand has multiple connecting drifts and workings within the mine with winzes and stopes working down to multiple lower levels. Total workings are estimated over 3500 linear feet. The gold veins and deposits in this area are known to generally run horizontal. For this reason, the mines have been cut with long drifts connected by shafts and winzes.

South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

Monarch Rand Gold Mine - California - 2018
Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. is happy to present The Monarch Rand Gold Mine. The Monarch Rand has a spotty history from its inception to present day. The mine has been noted for a large gold vein which is chased by the drift works. This vein is noted to be 3 ½ feet wide and carrying gold values of over 2 ounces per ton ($48.00 per ton with Gold priced at $20.75 per ounce). The mine is a massive old beast which has not been surveyed or mapped for at least 50 years. The original workings of the mine were reported to be 1600 feet. Today, there should be well over 4000' of workings in the mine.

Green Talc Gold Mining Claim - Nevada - 2017
The Green Talc Gold Mine is a sister mine to the Dover Mine. The two mines are often referred to together in documentation as the Dover and Green Talc. Historically small bits of free milling gold were mined and processed on site at the Green Talc Mine. Reports from 1937 and 1955 note that there is a series of open pits and small prospects on the claim. According to documentation, the mine has not been actively worked since 1929.
Keystone Gold Mining Claim - Nevada - 2017
The Keystone, located just outside of Winnemucca, Nevada, covers an astounding 80 acres of workings from the historic Keystone and Tamzy mines. The Keystone was first developed on a small scale in around 1870. The majority of the work was done from 1936 to 1940 when the mine was owned by the Jones Brothers, before it was shut down by the War Act.
Gold - What is a Krugerrand? Why Buy Krugerrands?
TheHelpfuldad discusses the Gold Krugerrand. The South African Gold Krugerrand has dominated the bullion gold market and is considered to be the most widely held and actively traded bullion coin on the market. Not only was the South African Krugerrand the first bullion gold coin to be marketed as a vehicle for private ownership during the 1970s it was also the first gold bullion coin to be minted in exactly 1 oz fine gold increments. Developed by the South African Chamber of Mines on behalf of the South African gold mining industry and officially authorized by the South African Reserve Bank, the Krugerrand continues to be on of the most widely produced and recognized gold coin both internationally and domestically, with nearly 46 million ounces produced and distributed world wide. Kruggerands are produced at the Rand Refinery in Germiston South Africa, established by the Chamber of Mines in 1920, the Rand Refinery is the worlds largest single site smelting and refining complex in the world. Developed solely for gold bullion trade and private ownership the Krugerrand was strategically made in 1 oz increments and of 22 karat gold with no face value on the coin, this was done with the idea that, although it is still considered legal tender its value would be more commonly linked to the spot price of gold. The Krugerrand is most noted for it's low premium over gold spot price and its ease of liquidation internationally.

Great Bear Gold Mining Claims - Arizona - 2017
The Great bear mine is a large and historic gold mining operation, just outside of Quartzsite, Arizona. A series of portals are opened up along a wide quartz body that is heavily concentrated with oxidized iron. Perfect breeding ground for gold. Many of the mine openings connect via trenches. The veins in the mine range from 3 feet to 9 feet as documented by local geologists and the USGS. Old reports note 3 veins that are large and gold bearing. Only the center vein has been worked in earnest. When the mine was shut down by the War Act there was over 30,000 tons of ore (reserves) on the center vein with an average return of 3 OPT in gold. Do your math on that.
A-Z Documentaries - Deepest Gold Mine ever
The TauTona Mine or Western Deep No.3 Shaft,[1] is a gold mine in South Africa. At approximately 3.9 kilometers (2.4 mi) deep, it is home to the world's deepest mining operations, rivalled only by Mponeng gold mine.[2] The mine is one of the three Western Deep Levels mines of the West Wits gold field west of Johannesburg. The mine is near the town of Carletonville. TauTona neighbours the Mponeng and Savuka mines, and TauTona and Savuka share processing facilities. All three are owned by AngloGold Ashanti. The mine was built by the Anglo American Corporation and its 2 km (1.2 mi) deep main shaft was sunk in 1957. The name TauTona means "great lion" in the Setswana language. The mine began operation in 1962. It is one of the most efficient mines in South Africa and remains in continuous operation even during periods when the price of gold is low. Since its construction, two secondary shafts have been added bringing the mine to its current depth. The mine has some 800 km (500 mi) of tunnels and employs around 5,600 miners. The mine is a dangerous place to work, with an average of five miners dying in accidents each year. The mine is so deep that temperatures in the mine can rise to life-threatening levels. Air-conditioning equipment is used to cool the mine from 55 °C (131 °F) down to a more tolerable 28 °C (82 °F). The rock face temperature reaches 60 °C (140 °F). By 2008, the mine reached 3.9 km (2.4 mi) underground. This made it the deepest mine in the world, surpassing the 3.5 km (2.2 mi) deep East Rand Mine by a considerable margin. This new shaft extended the depth from its previous 3.5 km (2.2 mi), and will extend the mine's life to 2015.[3] The lift cage that transports the workers from the surface to the bottom travels at 16 metres per second (36 mph / 58 km/h) so together with traveling on horizontal trolleys the journey to the rock face can take up to 1 hour from the surface level.[4] The mine has been featured on the MegaStructures television program produced by the National Geographic Channel. In the 2008 financial year, there were seven fatal accidents at AngloGold Ashanti's West Wits operations in which 14 miners died, four of those at the TauTona mine.[5] One fatality was recorded the next year.

Bryan Gold Mining Claim - California - 2017
The Bryan Mine and Mill is a notable historic Gold Mining Property with blocked reserves and a substantial milling operation which has left thousands of tons of waste rock and tailings. These tailings and waste rock were processed prior to 1900 from historical accounts and could likely be re-processed at a great profit. This claim was once a large production as evidenced by the amount of work done at the site. There are multiple large adits and shafts on the claim. In addition, there is existing evidence of further infrastructure including multiple foundations and rock walls.

Lodi Gold Mining Claim - Nevada - 2017
The Lodi Mine site, located just outside of Fallon, Nevada, is dominated by an industrial sized headframe and ore bin combination. Standing roughly 30 feet tall, the structure serviced a double compartment decline shaft. The shaft decline quickly turns into a 90 degree run, but will need some clearing to be accessed again. Based on the waste dumps on the claim, the shaft is likely 150-200′ with about 300-500′ of drifting at unknown levels.
Anaheim Gold Mining Claim - California - 2017

Arizona Rand Mine - Arizona - 2016
The Arizona Rand is a massive development, also more recently known as the Roadside Mine. The mine was absorbed by the Katherine Gold Mine conglomerate and was worked for great profit for many years. The mine consists of a large stoped cavern with some unmapped drifts and winzes. It clearly showcases veins of gold ore along with some defined copper and sulphide silver. This is a commercial sized deposit that could be worked by a small group of miners under casual use, or with its substantial reserves, the Arizona Rand could be restored to a commercial operation.

South Africa's Toxic Mine Dumps (2009)
Superdump: Toxic waste seeps into the environment from South African mine dumps. December 2009 For downloads and more information visit: http://journeyman.tv/59894/documentary-films-archive/superdump.html After 120 years of gold mining, the land and water on Gautengs far West Rand are some of the most polluted in the country. The mine dumps that dot the area west of Johannesburg have been identified as public health risks. One of the biggest problems is uranium seeping into the watercourses, turning the sediment both poisonous and radioactive. Ecologists, the community and the mines all agree that the mine dumps must go. But no-one can agree what to do with them. This edition of Special Assignment takes a look at community resistance against two proposals to reprocess the mine dumps and relocate the resulting waste. Communities are clashing with the mines over two proposed superdumps mega-mine dumps proposed for Fochville and Randfontein. Should these communities suffer for the health of the entire region? And what impact will these superdumps have on food security?

South Africa's Gold Miners To Go On Strike Over Pay Demands
South Africa's gold producers said on Friday (August 30) in a statement that the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) had served notice of a strike over pay demands starting from the night shift on Tuesday. Affected companies include South Africa's four main gold producers, AngloGold Ashanti, Gold Fields, Harmony Gold, Sibanye, and some smaller operations. The country's Chamber of Mines, which negotiates on behalf of gold producers, said on Tuesday it had made a final offer to unions to increase basic wages by between 6 and 6.5 percent. "Our shareholders, and here I must speak on behalf only of Harmony, Anglo GoldAshanti and Sibanye, have indicated that they will not entertain above CPI increases," said Harmony chief executive Graham Briggs, speaking on behalf of the gold producers represented by the Chamber of Mines of South Africa. Wage talks between the NUM -- which represents about 64 percent of the over 120,000 workers in gold mining -- and the companies broke down last week. A complete shutdown of the gold sector of indeterminate duration could cost South Africa more than $35 million (22 million pounds) a day in lost output, according to calculations based on the spot price. This will put pressure on a struggling economy already weighed down by a ongoing strikes in auto manufacturing, construction and aviation services, and facing potential strikes from textile workers and petrol station employees. "Every month the gold mine sector is on strike, it doesn't produce, we lose six billion rand in foreign exchange in this country, that's foreign exchange that will not be replaced, six billion rand per month foreign exchange from the gold sector," Briggs said. NUM has been seeking a 60 percent increase while a more hardline rival wants pay hikes of up to 150 percent. The companies say these demands are unrealistic, given rising costs and falling bullion prices. "The strike is continuing, 90 000 is down and will continue to be down until a solution is found. We are continuing to interact with each other, we have done that over the weekend they moved to 7,5 its not enough yet and we are hopeful that if they continue to increase then we may have to consult our members to get their feelings," said NUM's spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka. On Friday, Anglo American Platinum, the world's top platinum producer, said it could cut about 4,800 jobs, laying off 3,300 workers and paying off the rest, and will redeploy 1,600 more. Job cuts are a sensitive issue in South Africa, where the unemployment rate is more than 25 percent and mine labour violence rooted in a union turf war has killed dozens of people over the past 18 months, mostly on the platinum belt.
