Gold is one of the earth’s most precious metals. It is found naturally occurring in rock with nearly all of the earth’s supply coming from meteorites that hit the planet over 200 million years after it formed.
Gold is the only naturally yellow colored metal. It is malleable and soft and as such is easily used as an alloy.
Gold is used in everyday life for a variety of uses. Most commonly it is found in jewelry, in currency, and in medical devices.
Companies that mine for gold include Bluestone Resources, Mandalay Resources, and Premier Gold.
