International Gold

Can the classification of a mineral as an ore change?

Please give a brief but sufficient explanation.

Calling particular mineral that is found in a particular geological environment as ore depends on whether it can be economically extracted.

On the basis of several factors, the economics of mineral extraction can change. A few years ago, the international gold price was US$250 / troy ounce. The current gold price is US$1130 / troy oz. Even if one considers increases in labour costs due to inflation over the past few years, certain ground that was previously considered economic (due to low grade or low tonnage), can now be profitably extracted.

A further factor which has made mining more efficient & has resulted in ground that previously been uneconomic becoming economic, is advances in extraction (metallurgical) technology. Before 1886. all gold mining used some sort of gravitation or murcurial extraction; this meant that gold mining could only continue below the water-table where material consisting of visable gold was concerned. Cyanidation, post 1886, meant that sulphides (and in particular pyrite) which contained microscopic inclusions of gold, could be economically worked for gold & could be considered gold ore.
