5 Replies and 10628 Views weighing gold  10628  5 Started by  dsabbo@sbcglobal.net I have an old vial with a small amount of gold in it.  I would like to weigh the gold to see just how much is in there. I just bought a small digital scale but now I'm wondering just how to weigh only the gold. I can weight an empty vial, but not the amount of water unless it is still mixed in with the gold.  Now, somewhere and long ago, I read an article about just how to do this, but I can't remember where or when or how. Any suggestions as to how or where I might have read about th...

8 Replies and 12928 Views What Classifier Sizes  12928  8 Started by  civilian_again@yahoo.com I am looking at getting more classifiers. I have the 2 (1/2') and 8 (1/8') mesh classifiers by Keene. I am going to use a 100 for (Blue Bowl and Miller Table). What sizes do you feel are best to add before the 100 mesh or can I just go from the 8 straight to the 100  My concern is having to much to dig through, in the classifier, if I make a big jump like this. Thanks

15 Replies and 24246 Views Dry washers, losing gold  24246  15 Started by  rewipe   I got a Gold Duster dry washer that I bought used a few years ago. I'm getting ready for my gold trip and bought some bags of dirt at the Gold Show. I ran them in my dry washer and then panned the tailings and found some big flakes. What I'm I doing wrong I'm digging dirt on a mountain and classify it down to 1/4 inch and pack it down to the river and run it in my high banker. I was hoping to use the dry washer on the mountain to save me some trips up and down the mountain.  I...

First to those familiar with CB Radios TX Gain is more power out and RX Gain is receive, so this said all metal detectors currently used for the most part are VLF or PI and even ZVT, but all are ruled by their RF function in that if not set properly you will miss targets. So how do you set it up     Quick and simple with PI air tune to eliminate EMI and ground balance in...

32 Replies and 30737 Views Crushing Quartz  30737  32 Started by  Katra12
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Saw an interesting Youtube video a bit ago. Guy took a lemon sized smooth quartz stone from a gold bearing river and crushed It using a steel mallet and t-shirt. As he broke it up, he checked for gold veins and found none, but panned out the crushed rock and found what appeared to be nearly 0.5 grams of nice gold flakes. Anyone else ever tried that with good results

2 Replies and 9628 Views DIY Bazooka gold trap stand..  9628  2 Started by  Mparramore In the past I have had issues with setting up the Bazooka in the river. I thought there has to be an easier way. I looked online and figured that I would make a stand myself. I could drive the stakes into the river, adjust the height and angle if needed. The bungee cords hold down the Bazooka and it wont float off. I think I went over board with the wire and drilling the screws and sliding lock pieces. At least I wont lose the parts to the river. I am open to new ideas. You can use my ideas and ...

The researchers say the alloy sample pretty much destroyed a diamond pestle and mortar used to crush the sample for testing in a spectrum analyzer. The addition of Gold to Titanium makes an...

3 Replies and 9958 Views New LDMA General Forum  9958  3 Started by  ewbragg I would like to propose a new general LDMA Members Update Forum that all the LDMA  members and caretakers that can post updates for camp phone, address, rules, events, discuss issues, etc.  Another idea is a menu option for LDMA members to at least be able to view the LDMA camp current information.  I know there are individual forums for each camp, but I think a general LDMA Forum for discussing LDMA properties, events, or issues would be beneficial to all.

1 Replies and 8631 Views What's With That Name ?  8631  1 Started by  rockkingron@gmail.com      Something that is often overlooked is the names on maps and how they can help the prospector to locate likely areas to hunt.  A good example of this is the colorful and strange names the 49ers gave to towns, ravines, creeks, streams, hills, and mountains where they hunted for gold.  Also some of these place names have been renamed several times over the years.      One area that I hunted, I had with me an old 1890s map, a 1950s 15-min. topo map,...

21 Replies and 17448 Views Folding Sluice Box Classifier  17448  21 Started by  Stumbletown Miner     Hi everybody,     I made a cheap inexpensive classifier for a folding sluice box. It's made from a $3 IKEA strainer and a Dollar Store strainer with Home Depot plexi-glass, and Epoxy.     The main reason I did this is because the folding sluice box's load up with 1/2' rocks and they stay loaded up. So 1/4' or smaller is best. My classifier is in the water so it rinses all the rocks and materials. The first grate (Grizzly) puts the bigger rocks in t...

26 Replies and 26258 Views Gold mining bucket tip  26258  26 Started by  Stumbletown Miner
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
 If you've carried a bucket full of Gold mining tools very far, like four miles up a river, then you'll like this bucket tip. A snappy grip & a closet rod bracket bolted onto the bucket to carry the Gold pan & a classifier. And in the bucket are the usual tools...small blue pan, rock hammer, crevice tool, scooper, paint brush, black sand magnet, sucker bottle, pouch with viles & tweezers, etc..     Stumbletown Miner
