Gold mine exploration is challenging and complex. It requires significant time, financial resources and expertise in many disciplines – e.g. geography, geology, chemistry and engineering. The likelihood of a discovery leading to a mine being developed is very low - less than 0.1 of prospected sites will lead to a productive mine.

Gold mining in Penhalonga represents all methods of gold extraction from deep underground mining, to small-scale mining with mines only a few metres deep, through large-scale alluvial mining and the most infamous gold panning. The area therefore is affected by the environmental impacts of each of these mining methods.
- mills gold to very thin flakes, - stains the gold with iron - not good for batch processing - in non-mining countries, balls difficult to find - high investment costs compared to capacity Ball mill Advantages - product size can be very fine (e.g. for flotation, 150 m) - works with very hard material - can be built locally (in experienced.
