    These concentrates are what washed through a number 30 screen then a ribbed sluice box next the blue bowl concentrator. Then panned again the micro gold is so fine mercury is used to collect I will build a retort or buy one to recover the mercury to keep this prosses environmentally friendly. Look like the two-pound rock will give up a half ounce of gold total hopefully lol. Clean the mercury off and you have some nice gold. That pile of grey mud is mercury and gold.

    The Quartz veins are great.

    Outstanding Dennis! I will bet that the detector will be busy looking for similar ore.

    Helped my son clear a trail so we could ride the quads closer to an old mine dump so he could metal detect. It's a lot easier to haul rocks on the quads than our backs this two-pound rock had around a 1/4 ounce of gold. Broken with a single jack then ran through the chain mill then panned to recover the free gold. Just a random Click image for larger version

ID:	656904 rock that the detector toned out on the old timers didn't have the technology to recover this without milling every rock.

    My son brought me some ore samples he found metal detecting no visible gold weak signal. But after a little mortar and pestle work some dirty gold, it will go in the smelt jar for refining. Click image for larger version

    I keep thinking I might find gold in some of the quartz I've been knapping. No luck so far, LOL!

    I got to get in the creek for more than one reason. Golds been found in the creek. There’s a mine not too far from here.

    It's been way too hot for any mining, but I have a shady spot under the oaks for cleaning ore samples. These started at about 41 grams over an ounce cleaned will be saved as specimen's .

    Thanks Sr, I'm saving up for a better detector, here are some old mines, but I only have a humble vanquish which has given me some joy. A nox is better than an orx for this

    We have a number of detectors, but a Minelab Nox 800 and a Minelab 2300 are the primary go to machines.
