  10. I have been studying the Reverse Helix Methods of gold recovery recently. I am impressed with the efficiency, compactness, and portability of these self-contained systems. It would be interesting to have open discussion on how well these work in actual practice. - Geowizard

    Vcella is a well known manufacturer of assay ovens. Do the math; The largest Kiln/oven made by Vcella is the Model 200. It is a 25.68 Kilowatt oven. Conversion of BTU's to Kilowatt-hours; 1 Million BTU = 293 Kilowatt-hours. That's equivalent to running MORE THAN TEN of the largest ovens available for one hour. Engineering requires an understanding of mathematics. Smelting is obviously an option for the small miner. - Geowizard
  17. Chris, I have always had the opinion that there's lots of gold still out there! Why won't you tell us where you found the "Summer Gold"? - Geowizard

    68 pounds avdp of molten red brass = 68 pounds avdp (991.67 troy ounces) of molten gold. I would suggest not to worry about TRIVIAL costs in smelting precious metals. - Geowizard
