Dredging Tips and Tricks: A Measure of Water Pump Efficiency
August 2020 by Harry Griffin
…as an academic argument, when mated to the appropriate engine, is the pump really moving water at the rate of 400 GPM?
Gold nuggets come in all forms, but I never expected that dinosaur nuggets would too, and at a decent price.
While recovery rates are important, they must necessarily be secondary to the volume of material processed. Running more material at lower recovery rates is generally preferable to increasing the efficiency of the system.
Keeping in mind how the local topography affects where gold has been deposited can help you find more gold, and is certainly something the prospector needs to keep in mind.
A treasure-seeking young man whose name will forever remain anonymous made the months-long journey either over land or by sailing ship to California after word spread about the gold strike in 1849.
I suspect detailed geological mapping and prospecting would lead to discovery of one or more overlooked gold deposits in the district even though it has been heavily prospected in the past.
I remember in the couple of years after that 1997 flood, prospectors around California did very well, taking ounces of gold from places that had not yielded any gold for years before that.
