Where Is Gold Found in the World?
You might be asking yourself, “Where is gold mined in the world?” Gold can be found all over the world in mines and in waterways. Some of the largest gold mines are in South Africa, the United States, Indonesia, Australia, and Canada.
There are two categories of gold found in the world: primary and secondary. Primary gold is found in rock formations, and when a large amount of it is found, it can become a gold mine. Many times, gold found in rock formations is found alongside other precious minerals such as silver or quartz.
Secondary gold is found in small waterways that have run through these rock formations and carry small nuggets or flakes along with them. As the water carries the gold along, it settles along the bottom of the waterway and is covered by dirt, silt, and sand. The gold can then be panned and collected, as during the California Gold Rush.
The largest gold mine in the world, currently, is in the Witwatersrand basin in South Africa, which has produced a large amount of the world’s gold.
