Ask The Experts - Is this prospect worth sampling?
December 2020 by Chris Ralph
The concentrate is just the heaviest of the heavy minerals but some sulfides are sneaking in there also with the gold...
Q: ...It’s a 2,000-acre property that was mined 100 years ago, still has the old workings, tailings, etc. I am looking to recover gold from the old waste/tailings... plus possibly strip mine some of it. What are my options?
If it's gold, how should I clean it?
