Gold Quality and Percentage
Gold along with silver and copper, form a column in the periodic table. Pure gold is 24 karat. 18 karat is 75% and 12 karat is 50% pure gold.

World Gold Resources
It's abundance in the earth's crust is 0.004 ppm. 100% of gold found naturally is isotope Au-197. 28 other isotopes can be produced artificially and are all radioactive.

Mineralogy
Gold is sometimes found free in nature but it is usually found in conjunction with silver, quartz (SiO2), calcite (CaCO3), lead, tellurium, zinc or copper.

Deposits
There are gold mines throughout the world. Gold deposits are found worldwide in a variety of geological environments.

 

USES
Gold is the most malleable of all metals and soft enough to be cut with a knife and is also ductile metal and is a good conductor of heat and electricity. It is used in computers, telecommunication, digital technology and space exploration.

  • Gold is the most malleable and ductile of all known metals. A single ounce of gold can be beaten into a sheet measuring roughly 5 meters on a side. Thin sheets of gold, known as gold leaf, are primarily used in arts and crafts for gilding. One sheet of gold leaf can be as thin as 0.000127 millimeters, or about 400 times thinner than a human hair.

 

  • Pure gold is soft and is usually alloyed with other metals, such as silver, copper, platinum or palladium, to increase its strength. Gold alloys are used to make jewelry, decorative items, dental fillings and coins. The amount of gold in an alloy is measured with a unit called a karat. One karat is equal to one part in twenty-four, so an 18 karat gold ring contains 18 parts pure gold and 6 parts alloy material.
  • Gold is a good conductor of heat and electricity and does not tarnish when it is exposed to the air, so it can be used to make electrical connectors and printed circuit boards. Gold is also a good reflector of infrared radiation and can be used to help shield spacecraft and skyscrapers from the sun's heat. Gold coated mirrors can be used to make telescopes that are sensitive to infrared light.

 

  • A radioactive isotope of gold, gold-198, is used for treating cancer. Gold sodium thiosulfate (AuNa3O6S4) is used as a treatment for arthritis. Chlorauric acid (HAuCl4) is used to preserve photographs by replacing the silver atoms present in an image.

PRICE

The price of Gold is primarily determined by changes in supply and demand, which are in turn affected and determined by global economic conditions. Gold consumption by Asian countries has increased demand for the metal and, in the last few years, has led to higher prices.
