Gold is obtained from the water of Subarnarekha River flowing in Jharkhand, West Bengal and some areas of Odisha. Places like Tamaad and Saranda in Jharkhand, local tribals filteres the sand of Subarnarekha River and collects gold particles. Generally, one person can get one or two particles of gold after working all day and 60 to 80 gold particles in the entire month. These particles are slightly larger than rice grains.
Sensitization of gold particles from sand is done throughout the year. Only during the flood, the work ceases for two months. Those extracting gold from the sand get 80 to 100 rupees for a particle. However, the price of one particle in the market is about 300 rupees or more. One man earns 5 to 8 thousand rupees in a month by selling these gold particles. Local brokers and goldsmiths have made the properties by buying gold particles from tribal families.

Like Subarnarekha River, gold particles are found in the sand of its tributary "Karakari" River. Some people says that the gold particles in the Subarnarekha River reach through Karakari River, but there is no clear evidence about it. Length of Karakari River is only 37 km.

Gold is also extracted from the Klondike River flowing in Dawson City, Canada. It is believed that gold has fallen in the sediment of this river. In 1896, George Carmack, Dawson Charlie and Jim Mason firstly said that gold is found in this river.
First of all, frozen sand of Klondike River is collected in buckets and it’s filtered several times. After that water of the river placed in small utensils and deposited in the form of ice. Ultimately, pieces of gold are separated from that ice. These pieces of gold are in many shapes. Some pieces are similar to pearls, some are similar to thin skins and some are also shaped in flakes. There is no restriction for finding gold in this river and any person can do excavation work to find gold here.
