Gold in Quartz Table to Easily Find the Percentage (%) of Gold in Quartz

We have included a gold in quartz table on this page that enables you to see the percentage of gold in a quartz specimen if you know the Specific Gravity of the specimen.

How you can calculate the specific gravity of the specimen is outlined on the Gold in Quartz page.

Gold in Quartz Table - Printable PDF Copy

Gold in Quartz Table PDF you can download and print.

You will need a PDF reader to read the Ebook, if you cannot open it the downloaded PDF file then you can download Adobe Reader by left clicking on the icon below.

How to use the Table

  1. Calculate the Specific Gravity of the rock specimen containing the Gold
  2. Read the specific gravity number you have assessed for the rock specimen in the first column "Specific Gravity Calculation"
  3. The adjacent column is the Approximate % of gold in that rock specimen
  4. Multiply the weight of the rock by the % of gold and it will return the approximate weight of gold

This gold in quartz table it has been calculated using the Specific Gravity of gold as 19.3 and Specific Gravity of Quartz as 2.65.

In reality of course there will be impurities in the gold and in the quartz so as usual we caution you to use it as a quick guide, not a definitive analysis of the amount of gold in a quartz specimen.

If the rock specimen has predominantly other material such as amphibolite or other rock then a different table would need to be constructed.

If you would like other tables developed just ask us through the "Contact Us" page form.
