Quartz Reef Mining. Primary gold typically happens in quartz veins. The removal of gold ore from these tough quartz veins was traditionally referred to as quartz reef mining. A Prussian engineer, Jacob Brache was the foremost to feel that quartz reefs may have even more gold than alluvial fields. The novel mining firms had to sink very profound shafts to get quartz from the reefs profound underground.

Golden Reef Mining (GRM) is a Zimbabwe based private limited minerals exploration and mining company with a diversified mineral portfolio. The company was established and incorporated in 2007 and is in the business of mining and exploration of selected mineral deposits.
operations have evolved from strategies pioneered in narrow reef South African gold mining operations. Typically, ventilation systems make use of the mining infrastructure consisting of a primary vertical shaft or decline clusters developed to an economically advantageous primary horizon. As the mine is deepened, through the development of a

Gold Mining Reefs and Leads. A gold reef is where the gold is found still deposited in its original rock host. In Ballarat this rock was usually quartz, in what is described as a reef. Alluvial gold was gold that had come loose from its original host, and had been deposited by water action into creeks and rivers.
