california gold quartz veins. . veins of gold bearing quartz are well known in california and historically they have produced millions of dollars worth of gold. their formation and the gold they contain are of interest. quartz mines are found and worked in a great many counties in california from siskiyou on the north to san diego on the south.
gold bearing quartz is one of the world's rarest forms of natural gold. it is found underground by hard rock miners in only a few locations in the world. most of the world's production comes from a handful of mines in northern california.

for most small scale gold prospectors crushing ore to determine the amount of free gold is the best method to determine gold content within an ore sample. free gold can then be collected using traditional gravity based methods which do not require the same level of permitting as the chemical methods used by commercial gold mines.
gold bearing quartz is one of the most rare types of natural gold that you can collect. the vast majority of gold mined today is produced by blasting and crushing ores to extract the gold. very few large scale mining operations retain the larger collectable pieces that they produce.
