Ask The Experts - Where should I get my geology degree?
October 2017 by Chris Ralph
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: Aside from the softness scratch test and other methods of identification, what feedback would you have on identifying gold in hard rock that may be mixed with other metals that affect its color?
Q: Is there a special name for this silver and copper alloy?
• Is there a standard contract for placer mining to use with a private property owner?
Is there a reasonable and cost effective way to separate out the values?
Q: Set up a small portable operation or send the ore to a custom mill?
