Golden overview

Gold is a soft, dense, yellow colored, precious transition metal that has multiple uses. The first known gold mine was in Ancient Egypt in 1320-1200 before common era. Its most common use is for jewelry. Found in the crust of the earth, it is also used in the medical industry, to make filings, crowns, and bridges for teeth. Additionally, it can also be used for stomach cancer treatments, in which colloidal gold is injected into the peritoneum. Gold is also used in the space industry. This occurs when NASA uses gold in their circuitry as a connector and conductor in their space shuttles.

Gold in Canada

Globally, Canada is the fifth largest producer of gold as of 2018. Within Canada, gold is the most valuable mined mineral.
