Making a complete list of gold mining equipment starts with defining the type of gold mining you are doing and the budget you have at your disposal. The type of mining relates to hard rock,eluvial, or placer; alluvial deposits. The capital budget you have to invest in buying your equipment with dictate the scale at which you want to mine and influence the long-term operating costs of your mining operation.
Since most of the information online provides lists of gold mining equipment for amateur level mining with equipment like: gold pans, metal detectors, mini sluice box, blue bowl, geologist rock pick, soil scoop, hand screens/classifiers. The items listed just now fall closer to gold prospecting tools and equipment than actual mining.
I will present here what I consider are major equipment lists for 3 types of mining operations. Remember now, a metallurgist is writing. This will not be flawless and since my speciality is process equipment, that is mostly what will be discussed.
Some amateur level gold prospecting equipment such as metal detectors are often classified as mining equipment by small miners/prospectors operating as a hobby. These items include but are not limited to:

The Northern branch situated in Phalaborwa, Limpopo Province RSA, has been in operation since the early 2000s supporting Palabora Mining Company Ltd. (then owned by Rio Tinto) with the start-up of their Block Cave mine after going Underground from the Open Pit operations. MacLean supported the secondary breaking fleet required by PMC to ensure their draw points are treated timeously. Since then, MacLean has sold, supported, and rebuilt various Drill & Blast, explosives charging and utility vehicles during the Lift I, decline and Lift II development operations as a premier supplier South African mining industry. Midlife rebuilds of two of the MacLean utility vehicles used by the mine were completed from the Phalaborwa workshop in 2016-2017. The mining equipment supported from this branch ranges the entire MacLean product suite from Ground Support, Ore Flow and Utility Vehicles. The regions supported from this branch are the Northern/Eastern limb of RSA, Waterberg, Palabora, Steelpoort, Burgersford and Lydenburg mining projects.
In 2009, MacLean set up a second branch closer to Johannesburg to support the Gold Production Mines in the surrounding areas as well as to assist supply chain for the diamond mines in the Northern Cape Province. The branch is in a small-town Parys, Free State Province. An additional 6500sqft workshop with a 5-tonne overhead crane was commissioned to support the MacLean bolter rebuild investment. Two 946 bolters were fully reconditioned in this workshop during 2017-2018. The regions supported by this branch are Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Northern Cape and Free State Provinces. Greater Africa is supported from Parys branch as well, covering mining customers in neighbouring East, Central & West Africa countries. The latest addition to the MacLean Support in Africa is the Kibali Gold Mine in DRC for Rand Gold Resources.
A total inventory parts value of 30 million ZAR is stocked in RSA to support the equipment fleet in the continent. A good fill-rate and support structure has been developed to support cross border shipping of parts to remote regions throughout Sub-Sahara. A typical 3-month safety stock is kept in-country with a healthy fill rate of 10 days on parts orders from MEMCAN.
