An Update On The Father's Day Gold Discovery
September 2019 by Chris Ralph
Just recently, the miners hit another big pocket, this time with nearly 1,000 ounces of gold. Some of the rich specimens were as big as a fist and others were in the form of smaller pieces.
Many of the Sixteen to One’s challenges arise from its unusual geology and the pocket characteristics of the ore deposits.
NovaGold Resources Inc. announced that a gold prospect in southwest Alaska is ready to advance to permitting.
Even with the decades of mining and exploration, much of the Comstock is still underdeveloped and its potential not fully tapped.
The favorable geology of the northeastern and central parts of the Seven Troughs Range are the parts most interesting to prospectors. They are underlain by a thick sequence of Tertiary volcanic rocks, mostly rhyolites and andesites.
Silver refining has been used from ancient times to change the characteristics of the metal. Early metallurgists refined silver by heating it a couple hundred degrees above its melting point and holding the metal at an elevated temperature for a period of time.
Many miners know that lead is very commonly associated with silver values, but the truth is that it is also associated with gold values in many locations as well.
