Ask the Experts
June 2014 by Chris Ralph• Gold in West Virginia?
Why are there no maps of the so-called mining districts?
• Is this a good time to invest in gold and silver?
If it's gold, how should I clean it?
Any ore grading 32% silver would contain more than 9,000 ounces of silver per ton and be valued at something in the range of $150,000 per ton. Even a few tons of this type of material would be well worth shipping off to a smelter for treatment.
Any good books on mineralized faults and contacts?
