Ask The Experts -- Is it worth going after these rare earth minerals?
March 2020 by Chris Ralph
Q: I live near the Gold Basin area of Arizona. What detector will go deep and be easier to use for small gold? I need some help.
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?
I know big mining companies use cyanide and other leach systems to recover gold from ore. Is this the only economically feasible way to recover the values?
Q: What are the advantages or disadvantages of hand crank vs. battery power vs. blower? And your preference?
