Moving The Big Rocks
October 2016 by Ron KliewerThe anticipation of finding out if the system of snatch blocks, shackles, chokers, anchor points, and the strap binding the massive slab of rock in the bottom of the river would even budge an inch was weighing on me.
Depending on the ore and if significant sulfides are present, a hard rock miner may be able to get away with simply using a flux to digest the other minerals that may be present.
Some of the wire forms are strange and fantastic, with wires sticking out in twisted, seemingly random directions. Others have deformed crystals and all of them have significant value to collectors.
After he excavates the ore down to bedrock, he goes over the bedrock with a metal detector to ensure he didn't leave any gold behind before he backfills the area.
...even the best prospectors have times when they do not find gold. It is all about taking chances against tough odds and succeeding.
…as an academic argument, when mated to the appropriate engine, is the pump really moving water at the rate of 400 GPM?
The very first thing to find out...is if the detector has the ability to be ground balanced.
When we got set up and I started to swing the coil over a small mound, I got a good signal, faint but repeatable.
