From Curiosity to Mine Owner - Pt II
October 2015 by Scott HarnWhen we last heard from Ernie, he was still in Honduras and we were anxiously waiting to hear how the set up and training went at the mine. It got a bit complicated after that.
Most placer equipment is really made with gold in the 30 and larger mesh sizes in mind, though if carefully used can often get reasonable recovery down to the 50 mesh size.
This is the point where you might ask, “What do these types of contracts typically look like and how are they negotiated?” Well, that is the topic of this month’s article.
There is a major change coming in the economy of the world and now is the time for prospectors and miners to grab a ticket and get on board.
…for a few hours, we fervently dug for gold. After we did a cleanup, I couldn’t believe the amount we got.
I am going to suggest dozens of ways you can increase suction power, dredge to greater depths, and improve recovery methods in your sluice box.
If there is misleading wording anywhere, it will be in the sample data and in reserve/resource estimates.
Even with the decades of mining and exploration, much of the Comstock is still underdeveloped and its potential not fully tapped.
