    Aa Spectrometer Assay

    deleted by Krose
  2. The first thing to do is to go ahead and start the process of filing the claim. If the assay comes back and it's not all that ,you can simply stop the proceedings from moving forward. IF the assay comes back to be what it is hyped up to be, you definitely don't want to drag your heels and have someone beat you to the punch. In the event of a 100 to 1 odds that the assay is that good don't trust ANYBODY until the claim is valid and you will not have any problems in finding takers to mine it. And like I said at the beginning, if the gold isn't there, your really not out anything but a little time. Just my humble opinion.----K rose chillin and mining in New Mexico (not really new, not really Mexico)

    Crushing And Milling

    Back to the little impact mill that sits on a bucket. A question came up the other day about just how fine it would take material down to if you were to keep running it through over and over. Does anybody know just minus what mesh it will actually take your material down to? Now keep in mind this is purely a hypothetical question. This is a matter of curiosity only. The manufacturer mentions achieving a minus 200 mesh in about 8 passes when starting out with 1/2" material.The implication seems to be that if you keep re-running the material, it will keep reducing to a smaller mesh.----K Rose

    Black Damp

    Not trying to be funny here but how much does a canary cost? Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that what the Old timers used? I'm sure that there is modern technology that works better but in the mean time did the old time method really save lives? ----K Rose
  6. Anybody out there versed in using iodide as leach? I need a little more info on using an acid buffer during oxidation and preciipitation to prevent base metal biuldup in leach.
  7. This is a topic that pretty much everybody should have an opinion on.Dowsing has been around for centuries.There are those who believe and those who don't. Would something withstand the anals of time if it didn't work? The one thing I have personally witnessed is that there are those that it works for and a lot of people that it don't.I have my own theory on why that is.In the thread on 3D imaging,John attested to the fact that his dowsing rods had picked the same spot as scientific testing had,a week before the testing had taken place.In his thread on the Ophir mine, Geowizard referred to it as a metaphysical belief system.In the same thread Rod Seiad made the comment that he to would use the metal detector before the willow branch.I can only speculate about how many,if any references towards dowsing have been made on this forum before I joined.Scientific technology can be applied by anyone who is willing to do what it takes to learn that technology.But if someone has the ability to dowse, should they be scoffed at because we haven't discovered the scientific principals behind it?I'm curious as to how many people who read this forum have gone out and found gold by dowsing.I am equally curious about those who have tried but it didn't work for them.Dowsing has often been refered to as witching.Wikipedia describes it as a type of divination.What say you?

    A Little California Gold With Minelab Sdc 2300

    Chris- A while back you did a thread on really small gold that you found with your Gold Bug 2. In comparison, I would be interested in you and Steve both , giving a break down between the two detectors, pro and con, from field operation to the cost of purchasing both the GB2 and the SDC.----K Rose

    Crushing And Milling

    Chris- thanks for the info. You learn something new everyday when your willing. I can definitely see where there can be a problem when dealing with free milling gold being extracted by means of gravity. I have been led to believe that when you are leaching, you want to have your ore as fine as possible. I realize that there are a myriad of different scenarios involved depending on the type of ore verses the type of leach. So hypothetically speaking, what range of particle size should a person aim for when dealing with free milling gold , then what range if you are going to have to leach, depending on the type of ore?----K Rose

    Crushing And Milling

    There is pro and con to everything. The con to the model you refer to takes minus one inch pieces. That's fine for sampling. The pro to the crusher that fits on top of the five gal bucket is that it is easier to carry into the field for sampling. Another con is that you have to make several passes to get the material under a hundred mesh nor smaller. If you are referring to a different model than the one that I am describing, please correct and educate me----K Rose

    Plans For "roller Crusher"

    I'm with Chis on this one. If you are already @ 1/4 " , the chain crusher that he is talking about will make short work of taking your material to minus 100 mesh and smaller. Mine is the one that takes 4" and smaller. Only problem that I've had is with really hard ores but with you starting at 1/4" , it will chew up and spit out practically anything you throw in it.----K Rose

    High Altitude Drywashing

    I have a question. When drywashing in northern New Mexico (which by the way is not really new and not really Mexico),I have run into a problem with the air/gas ratio on the blower motors.I have not been able to find a brand that has a manual adjustment . Does anyone know where I can purchase a leaf blower that has a manual adjustment for the carburetor ??? I have considered buying one in a high altitude community somewhere where I figure the factory has preset them for such places but would much rather have one that I can adjust as needed.----K Rose
  13. Signatures are needed on a petition against new mining legislation pending in Tennessee. You don't have to be a resident to sign the petition and it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. Go to http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/citi...rmit-for-2 also if you would please e-mail the governor@ bill.haslam@tn.gov and let him know that you support casual gold minning and that your tourism dollars won't be spent there if they pass this new legislation. I thank you and the dredgers of Tennessee thank you for your prompt action involving this matter.----K Rose

    Thanks Elijah. I just checked the web site and they're almost halfway to their goal. With the number of people that belong to this forum, we could do exceedingly way more than they could imagine. Now wouldn't that be a blessing?----K Rose

    Gold Refining

    It is in my own experience that if I hold the flame on the button until completely molten and it starts swirling round and round the impurities have time to coagulate and will rise up from the center of the button and settle on the surface as slag. It will be like a big black blister on top. Once cooled, it usually breaks off easily with a good tap with a small hammer, etc.. But trust me, I find that experiencing this visual is very addicting!----K Rose

    Thanks Flint. I know the guys over at the gold hog forum that started this petition deeply appreciate each and every signature. And again a heart felt thanks goes out to Chickenminer for coming to my aid and fixing the link so each and every one over here can support this cause. You know, if each and everyone that belongs to this forum took LESS time that it takes to sign the petition than it took to join this forum, it would really be a boost to our brothers of another.----K Rose

    Sorry guys. IT's still leaving out almost half of the link and there's nothing I can do to fix it. This is posted on the gold hog forum in working form if anybody is interested in signing this. Once again I apologize that I could not get the link to post in it's entirety and the inconvenience of having to go to another forum to sign this VERY IMPORTANT petition. If one of you can go there and get the link and get it to post here, you would be befriending a lot of people. THANKS ----K Rose
  20. Add to that the fact that gold is showing a slow healthy rise this week , things are definitely looking up for a change.----K Rose

    Reef Gold

    . My take on your post is that you are wanting to locate the main source, or the ore body. In the thread on 3d imaging in this forum, Geo outlined for me a simple technique for finding ore bodies on your own without very much capital outlay at all. Good luck and God Bless----K Rose

    Moore Creek Geology

    So not wanting to assume anything here, I will just simply ask if the 25 claims that you have advertised to farm out fall into the good areas of all this data? Also, to someone who is trying to decipher all this to choose a spot to land on, what advice would you give.---K Rose
  23. Hey Geo, would any of those 25 state of Alaska claims that you have advertised in the classified section of the ICMJ under properties, happen to be located on the Innoko river? And before you come back with any disclaimers about advertising on the forum, remember that you are only answering a valid question by an inquiring mind that is curious and wants to know more about all those claims that are available in the Moore Creek Area.----K Rose
