Purity of West Coast Gold and its Formation


Westland's gold is one of the purest in the world being 94% - 98% pure (95.9% = 23kt) in its natural form. This purity gives the gold its rich natural yellow colour.

Ancient glaciers and tectonic movements have shaped the gold. Tectonic forces have crushed and split open the original host quartz veins releasing the trapped gold within. Glacial paths and natural water ways have helped disperse the raw gold. The resultant effects are that West Coast gold is mostly alluvial gold of the flatter smooth variety, and surprisingly hard in its raw form.
