What lies at the bottom of one of the deepest holes ever dug by man? A South African gold mine that goes two miles beneath the Earth's surface holds far more than just precious metals
Minerals amp; Electronics Primary deposits are typically associated with granite intrusive rocks which form when magma bodies are embodied into rock beneath the earth's surface. Secondary deposits (placers) derive from the weathering and erosion of primary tin deposits. Africa has the world's deepest hard rock gold mine.
The United States is the third largest gold producing country, after South Africa and Australia. Mines in Nevada account for more than 80 percent of U.S. production. According to a 2005 article in The New York Times, Nevada had approximately 20 open pit gold mines, about half of the active mines in the United States.
The mine was the most productive gold mine in Arizona. Gold and silver are found in quartz veins and silicified and altered rock adjacent to the quartz porphyry dike that intrudes the Proterozoic metamorphics. The precious metal occurs as free gold associated with pyrite, argentiferous galena and minor chalcopyrite and sphalerite.

Kimberlite Diatremes. If diamonds are formed at depths of 150 to 200 kilometers in the upper mantle, how do they get to the surface of the earth? They are brought to the surface in a peculiar igneous rock called kimberlite (named after the diamond bearing region of Kimberly, South Africa where these rocks were first identified).
The gold fields of the Witwatersrand Basin in South Africa are, by a landslide, the largest single gold producing district in the world. It has produced some 2 billion ounces over a century of mining and at an average grade of 15 g/t Au with a current head grade of 6 10 g/t Au and they still have
Gold. There are 35 large scale gold mines operating in South Africa, including the record setting TauTona mine, which extends 3,9 km underground. TauTona means great lion in Setswana. South Africa accounts for 11% of the worlds gold reserves. Coal. The coal sector is important for the South African economy.
