Gold Pour Signals Revival in the Mother Lode
January 2013 by Associated PressMiners are digging again where their forebears once unearthed riches from eight historic mines that honeycomb Sutter Gold Mining Company’s holdings about 50 miles southeast of Sacramento.
One of the reasons I am bringing this article forward to readers now is that the mine personnel are celebrating the production of 150 million ounces of silver since 1986.
"As elected leaders of the State of Alaska, we want you to know that Alaska is open to investment from those who seek to develop our state's natural resources safely and responsibly..."
Two miners were killed in an accident partly because someone wedged a broom handle against a reset button to bypass an alarm that would have shut down the system, federal safety investigators said.
Several nations around the world are working diligently to make their countries more attractive to resource development as a means of improving economic development. One such nation is Cambodia, located west of Vietnam, south of Laos and due east of Thailand.
I thought it might be worthwhile to take a look at the basics of this important mineral separation technique and how a miner can use it to recover the values out of an ore.
In processing gold, silver and other valuable ores, the minerals containing the values, such as metallic gold, silver-bearing sulfides or other minerals, must be freed from the surrounding host rock before those valuable minerals can be captured.
Over the last several months, starting from before I left for Australia, I’ve been working on getting all the 2011 paperwork done for my mining claims. I will admit that some parts of the paperwork I let go until only a week or two before the due date.
