Nevada Claim Holders Form Coalition
October 2010 by Chris RalphUnlike producing mines, exploration companies and claim holders owning non-producing claims are not reaping a windfall of increased profits from the recent high prices for precious metals and other raw materials.
A group of Pittsylvania County landowners sitting on 92 million pounds of uranium ore wants Virginia to end its 25-year ban on uranium mining.
In developing a mineral property or mining claims, one of the first goals is to identify and quantify valuable deposits. The classic method of doing this is by drilling holes into the ground to sample what is below the surface. The problem is that one or two holes usually are not going to tell you a whole lot...
A Wilfley table works best when all of the mineral being run across it (the pulp) is about the same size. For this reason, I took a good look at each of the samples.
Due to technical difficulties, the photos in the September 2004 issue of ICMJ are currently unavailable for the online version of the magazine. Please know we are working on this and will get the photos loaded as soon as we can. In the meantime, please enjoy the articles as usual! Thank you for your understanding! —ICMJ
You keep all you find at Ganes, with weekly tallies kept for a loose competition that I find helps motivate me. I seriously try to find more nuggets than anyone else in a given week, and usually make it or close to it.
• What comes around goes around...
• Bombs away for Texas nuclear materials inspection
These gifts of nature are all unique to say the least. Any large nugget is an added blessing to the long toiling hours a miner puts in on his claim. Each golden clunker found is an added bonus. And each big one found will be discussed around the dinner table, or the fireplace.
