Q: Our group has found a nickel deposit in the Yuma, Arizona area that is similar to the one that you wrote about...
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?
Q: How do you amend a placer claim?
Questions regarding patented and unpatented mining claims and the legal rights surrounding them.
Q: Is this gold or some other metal?
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?
