    Crushing And Milling

    So Chris, I am crushing 4" rocks with a GS5000HD Gold Stryker Impact Mill, and coming out with 30- material lots of it 100- then. Washing it thru a 12" trommel and 8ft of Gold Hog matting. At the end of the sluice I have a 5 gallon bucket to catch any heavy material and runt that thru the spiral wheel. Only way I have found to run gravity to recover my micro gold. Think I may be over crushing? Thoughts?

    Crushing And Milling

    A neighboring mine has been using the micro blasting inside their mine to do further excavation. They seem to get farther hand drilling and chipping.

    Black Damp

    We are using the BW gas alert clip on unit. http://www.honeywellanalytics.com/en/products/GasAlert-Extreme
  4. Eric, I have been thinking about the liner in a pond. But how to clean out the muck from the liner. Or, dump into a catch tub 1st then into the pond. Still will have some muck to clean out later. I'm using two larger tubs now as Peter stated. and catching into a smaller clean out tub directly below the end of the sluice, that I clean out when it is full. Still we get a layer of muck to clean out in the last tub.
  5. How are you planning to clean out the 1st trough after you've run a lot of dirt?

    Small Trommels - 1 Yard Per Hour

    Looks like their website has changed. No Trommel pictures. Here's mine http://s1184.photobucket.com/user/rabbitt46/media/2013-05-04_15-39-01_25_zps166d1f15.jpg.html http://i1184.photobucket.com/albums/z337/rabbitt46/2013-05-04_15-39-13_22_zpsd2293b08.jpg

    Small Scale Hard Rock Mining

    Mercury can also be in its natural state in the water (rock form). I have heard of people seeing liquid mercury in the water but I've never seen it.
  8. Installing new suction hose on 2 1/2" dredge. Do you just force the hose into the metal end or use some sealant?

    Keene 2 1/2" Dredge

    Yes. And I do not use any petroleum products on my gold recovery systems.

    Keene 2 1/2" Dredge

    OK, power jet. Same hose everyone uses. Spiral outside and smooth inside. Same hose I use on my 3" High banker.

    Keene 2 1/2" Dredge

    Ok, maybe I wasn't clear enough. I am installing a new spiral suction hose that goes inside the metal sleeve that connects to the vortex, to suck up the gravel. My concern was since it is spiral and has spaces around it it may suck air.

    I Want Your River Trash

    Lawyers need MONEY. How much can you afford? Seems to me $100 is not too much to donate to PLP, its a lot cheaper than trying to fight city hall by yourself.

    Aa Spectrometer Assay

    Been having my testing done with an XRF machine. Paul Noll out of Talent, Ore. He is a miner there and gives good feedback.

    To Grubstake Or Not!

    Hell to get old, ain't it.
  18. What other detectors are you using? I assume the 965 hours is not on each detector? Which do you use the most? To do what?
  19. What always stumps me, as soon as I get the name of one rock down, along comes five more names for the same rock. Really hard to keep it straight when there seem to bee so many variations of names for what appears to be the same rocks.

    Citrine ? Aragonite? Your Opinion ...

    This involves destruction of the sample though! - Geowizard I hate it when they say that.

    Beware Of Phony, Junk Metal Detectors

    My new GPX 4500 (bought from a legitimate dealer) did not work right. Sent it in lto Minelab Chicago and they found something inside was loose. Fixed it free of charge and shipping. I have also heard of the fake detectors so would not buy from anyone but a dealer.
