Ask The Experts - How does gold form?
February 2020 by Chris Ralph
Q: I have a question/request regarding some black sand left from my Dad’s prospecting days.
Q: I’m working with some folks who have a large amount of old placer concentrates stored on their recently purchased property.
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...
Which comes first, claim filing or staking?
Q: If a high banker is outfitted with a suction hose, is it considered a dredge in CA even if it is sitting on the ground? Also, how do I find the best places to sell raw gold (flour, pickers, nuggets, gold in quartz, etc.)?
Q: Are there any mills that handle VMS ore?
