Ask The Experts - How do I work this glacial deposit?
November 2017 by Chris Ralph
Q: I have a gold mine in Colorado. There was an assay done which stated [there is] a lot of quartz within the mine. What is the cheapest way to mine it for gold? I don’t have the money for mills, etc. Can I do it by hand (during summer holidays), and how would I get started?
Q: I have a question/request regarding some black sand left from my Dad’s prospecting days.
Q: I am in the process of filing an appeal with my lawyer, but am seeking more “expert” advice in the arenas of “mining claims” and BLM jurisdiction.
Q: Since the weather in California is not as nasty as it is in Alaska, would it be advisable to wear the same setups as he wrote about?
• Is this old mining story too good to be true?
Q: Could you write more about the last two methods that you mentioned—the expanding chemical mixtures and the micro blasters, how and when to use them, and when not to use them?
