This new map-based tool is far superior to the old version with lots of potential layers and information that a prospector can use in research.
Silver recovery from low-level solutions is frequently done in a cell that has a cathode with 2 to 5 or more times the surface area as the anode.
For simplicity, I will assume that you wish to make enough profit so that you can comfortably pay your bills using just the profits from the mine.
Working underwater certainly has its challenges, but since I wanted to learn how to blast underwater, I just needed to dive in headfirst and take charge of the operation.
For the prospector, knowing what oxidized hydrothermal alteration looks like in the field is an important exploration tool.
