Ask The Experts - How do I separate gold from broken glass?
January 2020 by Chris Ralph
Q: I’m working with some folks who have a large amount of old placer concentrates stored on their recently purchased property.
- November elections
- Anti-mining ballot initiative rejected in Montana
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?
• Sweep speed and sensitivity settings for a GPX-4500
• How many parts per million make a project viable?
Why are there no maps of the so-called mining districts?
