Rivers are not just random and accidental; streams and other drainages are what they are because of the forces of erosion acting on the bedrock.
With the recent surge of interest in gold projects, it’s about time to revisit a subject that strikes fear into the hearts of small-scale miners: Permits.
After a short time, the tailings pile can get very large, and can actually block the downstream end of the sluice box.
Fortunately, there are products on the market that can address these problems and make a small-scale mining operation feasible.
I’ve been following the precious metals for decades, and I haven’t seen a move this powerful in many years.
Let’s set up a thought experiment: Suppose you had some material that ran one ounce per ton gold, which is generally considered high grade to fantastic grade depending on the circumstances.
From this I inferred that engine 2 had a carburetor problem. In this article, I discuss the specific engine/carburetor problem, and the surprising solution to this problem.
When detecting an area that has been cleaned to bedrock and you have new trees growing, always make sure you get your coil as close as possible to the tree. Why?
The more experienced prospectors know these lesser known spots are the types of places where big finds are still made.
Mining claimants who wish to retain their mining claims on Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service lands through the 2021 assessment year must pay a maintenance fee or file a maintenance fee waiver certificate on or before September 1…
…as an academic argument, when mated to the appropriate engine, is the pump really moving water at the rate of 400 GPM?
…the process remains much the same: Drill holes, load explosives, close up the holes, blast and muck out the resulting broken rock.
Want to find a lot more gold when you get out there to prospect? Well I’ve put together ten ideas that I think will help you become more successful…
The problem is that extracting gold from hard rock is often a lot more difficult than processing placer gravels. Still, there is some very high-grade ore out there in many old mining areas.
