Ask The Experts—Is it possible for a mountain range to have good lode gold deposits and yet the area streams not carrying like deposits of gold?
May 2011 by Chris RalphQ: Is it possible for a mountain range to have good lode gold deposits and yet the area streams not carrying like deposits of gold? Or do the two go hand-in-hand?
Q: Can you tell me if this deposit is worth working? It is a quartz vein and I had it analyzed for gold, copper, rare earths and other metals.
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?
Gold left in Rye Patch by the time I retire?
