Ask The Experts—How do I work this large quartz vein?
September 2008 by Chris RalphQ: I found a large quartz vein. I’m interested in mining this myself. Can you point me to a good book or other source on lode mining?
A few years ago I had a tremendous opportunity to visit Australia and hunt for gold there. The geology of the gold deposits there was somewhat different from what I was used to here in the US. I learned a lot about greenstone belt gold deposits while prospecting them in person, and it was an amazing trip.
Since we know that the secret to breaking rock is applying force from the inside out (putting tension on the rock), we will be looking at ways we can generate force using human and machine power.
We can either surrender or draw a line in the sand and fight to hold the remaining mining rights we still have.
