Gold extraction is also known as gold mining, and it is the process by which the precious metal gold is removed from the earth and the rock from the ground.
Gold can be extracted by using any of the two more popular methods: panning, and dredging. Panning is an easy and simple manual method, and is a time tested and traditional way of extracting gold from the rock and other material where it was found. Dredging is an industrial method, wherein gold bearing sediments are extracted from the earth, and are used at a later stage to extract the gold. Today, various other improved methods are also used to extract gold, like the cyanide method, and the hard rock mining method.
Gold can be refined, but the method used will depend on the form of the metal, and its gold content.
