Ask The Experts - This low-grade ore is not worth processing
February 2019 by Chris Ralph
Q: I am looking for a “trommel machine” that doesn’t separate anything but clay slurry from rock hard clay.
I was informed, in a less than friendly manner, that I can only camp on the claim for 14 days of every 90.
Q: Do I still have rights to this mining claim?
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?
