Zakat on gold/silver shares


My understanding is that Zakat is paid on gold and silver extracted from mines immediately i.e you don’t wait an entire year.

If you own shares of companies that mine gold/silver would you need to look at the gold/silver output, work out 2.5 % of that, and then pay zakat in proportion to to your ownership of the company ? Or does the normal zakat calculation for shares apply (2.5 % of market value/liquid assets)
