7 Replies and 10014 Views Breaking up caliche  10014  7 Started by  matthew.n.edwards.2@gmail.com Hello everyone, I wanted to see what the group might recommend for breaking up caliche prior to running it through a drywasher. I was hoping for some tips that would not require purchasing large/heavy/expensive equipment. I am mostly looking for methods that would be better suited for a hike in trip.   Thanks in advance, Matt

16 Replies and 5990 Views Prospecting  5990  16 Started by  donland1@aol.com I'm looking for claim-friendly location(s) to test a new magnetometer system that I developed to map now-buried former stream courses by sensing and mapping black magnetite sand deposits close to stream locations historically known to have produced significant gold. Help with digging these potentially rewarding locations also wanted. My involvement would be totally at my expense. (TopoMag project.)
