4 Replies and 151 Views Ore feeder build/design  151  4 Started by Hey Guys I need some help here. I have built a 3.5' x 7.5' gold concentrating shaker table similar in design to the MBMM design and I have it working well. The one area that I am finding challenging is building an automatic ore feeder for the table. I feel that the table should be capable of processing about one ton an hour. I have a good selection of metal fabrication/ machining equipment for a build but I believe in the KISS principle in anything I build. I would have included a picture but ...

1 Replies and 327 Views Desert Forx & Blue Bowl  327  1 Started by Thanks, guys, for your info. With Reget, I have tried everything, adjusting water and angle of wheel, still no luck. Table is level, etc. Will continue to pursue the fine gold. I don't care for basic panning figured either the DF or BB will give me faster results. Again, thanks guys.

3 Replies and 184 Views Desert Fox  184  3 Started by Tried everything, no luck. My paydirt is so concentrated, almost like dust. Tried even heaver, concentrate no luck. Followed instructions in handout, still no luck. I am convinced, in order to retain gold, the concentrate has to be nuggets size gold, rather than small fine gold. I would question the video's that show gold running to the top and dropping in the little basket. At this time, would not recommend the Desert Fox. Anyone who has had had luck processing small gold, please let me know.

I hope to head to Az. NV. N.M. in the spring. I see from reading here that the ground is getting pretty wet but maybe by the time I arrive it will be dry enough for drywashing. I can’t ...

6 Replies and 1448 Views Membership card  1448  6 Started by Hi all, I’m a new member in the so cal area. I tried my best to find the answer to my own question but need some help. I just joined and I am a college student right now, so I took the monthly payment option for the membership. On the webpage, it does show that it doesn’t include a membership card, but I have access to the claims etc. I’ve seen you need a guide, and your membership card with you while prospecting. So how can I gain a membership card Any help is appreciated. Thank you
