Answer:

You need to dig up #236*g# of mineral...

Explanation:

And of course, #236*gxx28.0%=66*g#...

Of course, if you got such a rich gold ore....I would not stop at digging up just #236*g#. I think I could move #10*m^3# a day (well I bet I could when I was younger!)...and I would keep working....
