Ask The Experts - Help with an assay report
February 2018 by Chris Ralph
Q: Can you tell us what the indicator rocks are? I’ve looked at the nearby digs and pushes that were made for gold and it looks like we’re digging on some similar material...
Q: I would like to know how to use a classifier when I dump my gravel into my sluice box. I would also like to know what sizes classifiers come in. I know that they are in sizes like -3/4. What does the “minus” in the size mean? Thanks for any help you can give me.
Hydraulic remnants or just lose material?
Is there a reasonable and cost effective way to separate out the values?
Q: ...It’s a 2,000-acre property that was mined 100 years ago, still has the old workings, tailings, etc. I am looking to recover gold from the old waste/tailings... plus possibly strip mine some of it. What are my options?
Q: Do you know of any processing plants that can extract rare earth metals?
