3 Replies and 673 Views How do I evaluate a ledge or out-cropping of quartz?  673  3 Started by I found a ledge or out-cropping of quartz and would like to evaluate it.

4 Replies and 1132 Views backpack for panning  1132  4 Started by Yesterday I went to a public area to do some stream digging. With a bucket, shovel, sluice box in hand, I trekked to my spot and did some digging. As I was walking out with my gear, I noticed panners walking in with a unique backpack. I didn't get a picture of their pack, but I can describe it. It looked like an external backpack. It had two vertical pouches, one on each side of the area that housed a 5-gallon bucket and sluice box. That area for the bucket was intentionally void, specificall...

This particular ore is known to have high concentrations of gold, silver and other PGM's, but one of the issues we're having is that normal fire assays are not picking up all the gold. Much of the gold is being washed away. We need a master assayer that can extract hard to get gold through a chemical or atomic procedur...

3 Replies and 748 Views GRE Claim size too large?  748  3 Started by  Kenaslan Just got an email from the infamous GRE (Gold Rush Expeditions) trying to sell me a Lode Claim here in Montana. (side note - nobody should ever NEVER buy from them). The claim is a Lode however they state that it is 20 Acres. How can they do that Please correct me if I am wrong, but as I understand it the maximum size for a lode claim is 1500 feet by 600 feet, that is nowhere near 20 Acres. I am not an attorney in my mind this should invalidate any claim they are making as it is against the...
