Extracting & Smelting Your Gold
February 2013 by Gus PeppleyUnfortunately, not all the gold that we prospectors find is pretty, or appealing to the eyes. They are not all nice, bright, shiny nuggets with lots of character that carry high collector value.
Designing my own dredge...
Heading for Australia to metal detect for gold. Tips? Suggestions?
I thought things started off okay until I realized I had forgotten some of my gear and had to return to the house. My troubled start was not helped when my boy came up to me a few minutes after my return to show me his first nugget of the day.
The operation and techniques employed are highly successful in producing free gold with minimal work involved while maintaining an environment protection process through the use of recycled water and a settling pond.
Placers that are directly associated with lode deposits are sometimes overlooked and may have good potential for those who are willing to search for them.
Now that you are actually going to be out there doing some prospecting, I may be able to help.
At first, I tried to shift things around, but then a hand with a rock would appear, so I would stop trying to adjust my gear and grab the rock to keep things moving.
