ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the plans to mine for gold in Scotland. Alba Mineral Resources (ABM) will test for gold in the Ochil Hills and Clackmannanshire. ABM technical director Sandy Archibald emphasized that previous surveys and research indicate that gold mining could bring significant revenues. The search for gold started in 1869 when prospector Robert Gilchrist urged Duke of Sutherland III to award licences to miners.
