Mining is one of the most challenging skills in New World. Not because the skill is difficult by any means, but because of the level players need to be in order to mine the more precious metals of the game.
Gold is one such precious metal, classified as a tier 3 metal, and has players stumped so far. Many aren’t sure where to find it after they grinded their way to the level they needed to be in order to actually harvest it. Unlike silver and iron ore veins, gold is a little more difficult to find thanks to it being a higher tier of metal.
However, this doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to find in New World. Actually, there are quite a few regions that hold the minable metal. So where are these locations? Keep reading below to find out exactly where you can find gold.
