Best Place To Mine Gold
The whole process of searching and exploration for traces of gold and the adventure involved in it is definitely exciting. But the excitement of exploration and searching for gold can never be compared in any manner to the excitement and exhilaration involved in finding the glittering metal. No wonder that the yellow metal has been associated with many expeditions and gold rushes. The major part of the period from 1600 to 2000 has witnessed numerous gold rushes. Brazil, Australia, North America, UK, New Zealand, Germany, Canada, Alaska and Mongolia all have seen major gold rushes.
But one thing is certain, not all of the prospectors or gold diggers actually found any gold, or even if they found any gold, the amount of gold which they could find was very negligible. The majority of the explorers who set out to search for gold in the West was truly experienced and could be considered as experts in their field.

But the placer deposits in the Western streams have already been thoroughly exploited by the Chinese workers and later by the itinerant miners in the year 1930.
Gold Mining sites are found to be spread all over the earth. Placed over the diverse continents and numerous nations, gold has proclaimed its presence everywhere. South Africa is the world’s leading producer of gold and is known as the worlds gold cradle. It produces more than 40 to 45 % of the world’s entire gold.
There are still areas in the West, where people can stake a claim in case they find any gold on their exploration trips. These areas are:
