Knowledge That Can Help You To Make a Huge Gold Find

Just What is Primary, Alluvial Gold and Eluvial gold ?

Primary gold is Reef or Lode gold where the gold is still deposited in its original host rock.

There are a few theories on how gold originated but the main consensus is that the majority of gold nuggets originate from Primary gold deposits.

Alluvial Gold (Deposited by water movement) and

Eluvial gold (disintegration of rock at the site where it originates – not there through water movement)

are essentially primary gold broken down by weathering and erosion and transported by gravity or water movement over many millennia of geological time.

The landscape of Western Australia was very different millions of years ago, in fact, prospectors would be thankful that the changes over geological time have exposed so much primary ore lodes in Western Australia.

Constant weathering, geological upheavals, re-deposition of material in the WA ancient landscape over the millions of years has lead to amazing opportunities to find gold in this state for the modern knowledgeable Gold prospector.

Gold Nuggets Do Not Like to Be Lonely

What does all this mean – basically where you find gold, or where it has been found in the past is a good indication of further gold that can be found in that area.

It is important to understand and interpret the gold you find and the local geological environment so you can try to determine what type of gold it is, whether it is alluvial gold or eluvial gold and how it got to the spot where you found it.

These are clear Red Flashing Light signals to you that there may be a primary source of gold nearby.
