  1. Glad to hear that Morlock.
  2. Going to a place tomorrow that has a lot of uranium mines . I don't want to hold onto radioactive rocks. looked at some pictures on this site and others. One site said grayish colored. one picture was yellow. more info would be great. And what would radioactive material do to a detector?
  3. What is the best liquid, acid to clean my gold with? have nitric and muriatic . thx in advance
  4. wondering how much flow is in lynx? is the snow melted yet? i will be cold i'm sure but i will not get wet. can i even get to the camp ground in 2 wheel drive?
  5. thanks grim1. repanned my cons and found 2 pin point sized pieces.
  6. when panning cons from my sluice box how much material should i put in my pan. I am filling it up about half full. is this too much. i have been taking a lot of time panning cons for fear the gold is not sinking through the fine sand. is there a faster method with a pan. thanks in advance
  7. hey knifemaker, i am using a bilge pump for my recirc. i believe it is a brushless motor ? do i need a special speed controller?
  8. i'm finding i'm not getting enough battery life while using my recirc pump for my sluice box. i am definitely not electrically inclined. can a reostat be used on a 12V system to adjust amperage draw ( pump motor RPM problem? ) looked for specs on pump and no luck. pump reads 4 amp @13.6V dc and its a 1200 GPH pump. Thanks in advance , john
  9. That is really a nice specimen. I'm noticing the quartz it is attached to is very white and have seen a lot of these on websites. . Is it whats called bull quartz? I been told to usually look for dirtier guartz with black and red inclusions in it. What type of quartz has the best probability of holding gold, dirtier looking or bull?
  10. HELP!! someone (?) a while ago blogged instructions to overlay mines in az onto google pro. looked through 30 pages of past reports and couldn't find it . thanks in advance
  11. will someone direct me to a tried and true site for refining gold. last time i asked questions about acids etc. i was reprimanded because i was new to this site. i appreciate the concern . i have been around acids a long time and know the risks. i have all the gloves , face shields, goggles and ventilation etc. i just don't know the proper procedures to go by. you can see lots of different procedures on the internet and HOW MANY OF THESE CAN YOU TRUST?
  12. thanks for the pics and explanation Bob. i have seen a lot of rock like that. don't have a rock crusher yet. does quartz gossan mean the quartz is colored or next to gossan. have heard dirty looking quartz is best? true?
  13. had my share of busting rocks i thought could have contained gold. on a scale of 1-10 which of these would you guys think would have gold. sometimes iv'e felt like i'm working on a chain gang.
  14. azdigger, what is your definition of a nug? i have only been detecting for 8 months and found a piece of cricket feces (or fly poop)only .hope i dont have to wait 6 years. i commend you for your patience
