2 Replies and 8025 Views New use for Gold for joints, drill bits and armour plating !  8025  2 Started by  robertj.scarborough@comcast.net Can the uses of Gold get any better than making new jewelry trinkets or used as a corrosion resistant plating for circuit boards or as a infrared radiation heat shield on astronaut helmets Rice University has discovered a new alloy made of Gold and Titanium that is 4X stronger than most steel alloys. 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 10557 Views New LDMA General Forum  10557  3 Started by  ed@braggfamily.com 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 9009 Views What's With That Name ?  9009  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 18549 Views Folding Sluice Box Classifier  18549  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 28144 Views Gold mining bucket tip  28144  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

2 Replies and 6024 Views I need help on what types of equipment to use  6024  2 Started by  kyleclay I need help on trying to determine what kind of equipment I can use or convert to for 25 dump truck loads of sapphire ore I have access to. I would like to go through about 20 five gallon buckets per day. Any advice will be helpful. Just to give you an idea of what I have already done, I used a screen to wash the material about two coffee cups at a time and it took me two days to go through 3 five gallon buckets.

The little containers that the test strips come in are plastic and have a seal that makes them air and water tight. I carry one on my pocket to put any nuggets or interesting gems etc. in.  If you have friends that are diabetic, they will have lots of these laying around.  If not come ask me on a claim, I always carry about 10 or so in my supplies to share.
