Ask The Experts—What's the cheapest way to mine quartz for gold?
August 2011 by Chris RalphQ: 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?
• What's worth picking out of the pan besides gold?
Is there a reasonable and cost effective way to separate out the values?
Q: I have a question/request regarding some black sand left from my Dad’s prospecting days.
