  1. This mine is not the typical large pit type in Nevada. http://elkodaily.com/mining/golden-veins-fire-creek-mining-high-grade-ore/article_921de618-2fda-5541-918a-c69195b3121f.html
  2. How deep can one reasonably expect to drill with an auger?
  3. He might be in AK mining. Ron

    Melting Your Own Gold

    Mr. Hammond, at what amount would it be better to take it to a refiner as melted? What are the other markets if that is polite to ask? Thank you, Ron

    Epa & Chicken, Ak

    Thanks.Human trafficking sounded pretty hard to imagine. Gas is probably more valuable in the area. I am not an Expert on Alaska, but I have spent a few months around Chicken and Forty Mile.

    Epa & Chicken, Ak

    With all due respect John, human trafficking and drug labs in Chicken was a ludicrous excuse to show such force while checking water quality. I agree there is crime everywhere, but there are simply not enough people for the human trafficking trade. Chicken, even on the Taylor highway, is just too remote for a drug lab. It would be possible, but a bad decision business wise. I don't think those guys are all dumb. There would be much better isolated places nearer population centers (markets for illegal drugs) such as....northern California.
  10. AuHunter, as a long time, and grateful reader of Steve's posts, I think there is a big misunderstanding here. Steve has been a huge supporter of mining for literally decades. Perhaps you may have heard of Alaska Mining and Diving Supply? He was a co-founder, did,and does much for the small mining community. Ditto for metal detecting folks. I would hazard a guess that many others here, like myself, did not respond to your your original post because we are primarily hobbyists, prospectors, dredgers, and recreational miners who have jobs in other industries and have to settle for doing this on our free time.Living in WI, I have to travel to California or Alaska when I have the funds and time. We do not have the answers to your problem. I wish I did as that guy trespassing your claim and others is dangerous. Others, who I have followed on the internet for years, such as Geo, Chris, Dick,and Steve all support mining, and have decades of experience as real miners. These men are the real deal. I am always happy to read and learn from their posts here and elsewhere. I hope you find a solution and share it as I am sure others are looking for it also. Good luck, Ron

    Corn Flake Nugget

    Great job! Ron
  12. I would start with a gold pan, shovel, and my copy of this book: http://www.amazon.com/Fists-Full-Gold-Chris-Ralph/dp/0984269207/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371152283&sr=8-1&keywords=chris+ralph I have read quite a few and this is the best. Have fun! Ron

    Gravel Transport

    When do you think they will pass laws against spring snow melt and flooding? Fishing should be outlawed if they really think dredgers harm fish.

    Sorry to deliver bad news, but this looks like the end of this method. http://www.sacbee.com/2013/06/07/5480308/calif-takes-step-to-close-gold.html
