    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

    use a metal detector looking for the bigger piece and let the caliche gods have the rest

    Breaking up caliche? Waste of time. Pan the material on TOP of the caliche. The caliche acts like a concrete barrier preventing the gold from sinking farther down. Good luck.
