  1. I have the hardcopies of GOLD PLACERS AND PLACERING IN ARIZONA by Eldred D. Wilson and Arizona Lode Gold Mines and Gold Mining by Eldred Dewey Wilson and Gurdon Montague Butler I have also read/cherry picked most of the stuff on the UofA site
  2. Do you happen to have the publisher/publishing info on these publications? I know they covered 1915-1977, do you have the Date, ISBN, anything?

  4. Well, the area we're working is producing pickers when creviced and panned out. I decided to locate potential targets with the GM1000 and work only those areas of bedrock. Turns out we have better "luck" just crevicing the area than using a detector to mark targets. I stopped marking the targets and just started working the area and BOOM, pickers. The number of false targets the detector (on any setting) produced is/was unacceptable, just a waste of time.
  5. or "pent up" rich folks wanting to recoup their losses from 2020 ...
  6. 37-501. Trespass on state lands; classification https://www.azleg.gov/viewdocument/?docName=https://www.azleg.gov/ars/37/00501.htm 13-1502. Criminal trespass in the third degree; classification https://www.azleg.gov/ars/13/01502.htm 37-502. Damages in civil action for trespass on state lands; seizure of products; report of trespasses https://www.azleg.gov/viewdocument/?docName=https://www.azleg.gov/ars/37/00502.htm the web address on the sign dumps you to https://asld.secure.force.com/recreationalpermit/ EASILY MONETIZED, POLICED and PATROLLED for FORCED compliance ...
  7. out at Lynx Creek with the Gold Monster 1000, identified and marked 7 targets on bedrock, all read ALL GOLD (full right side of indicator). cleaned the bedrock down with brushes, filled the pan and NOTHING ... not a single spec ... went back over the marked target area and not a peep outta the GM1000 ... Went down to the creek to work tailings piles and got a bunch of ALL GOLD targets, guess what?! Yep, NOTHING but rusty metal reading ALL GOLD (full right side of indicator) on the GM1000 ...
  8. My initial post- WATER in the DESERT - Flocculants How do flocculants (clarifying/flocculating agents) affect gold recovery?
  9. https://www.911metallurgist.com/blog/sodium-thiosulphate-gold-leaching https://www.911metallurgist.com/blog/hyposulphite-of-sodium-aka-thiosulfate-gold-extraction
  10. This is interesting ... What tests are being ran on your dry bed particulate? As I have read and tried to understand it, Sodium Thiosulfate binds to AU, then processing further via electrowinning gold is extracted. This is neat. We used something similar when I worked in the plating industry, the flotation cells were used to keep metals suspended in our processes. https://www.google.com/search?q=sodium+thiosulfate+gold+extraction
  11. How do flocculants (clarifying/flocculating agents) affect gold recovery? Do these agents act detrimentally to the recovery process? Do they attach themselves to gold particles similar to Sodium Thiosulfate?
  12. These were GOVERNMENT signs posted ON club claims, not club made signs. What is f#@%ing hilarious; is that these laws do not apply to areas that are easily monetized, policed and patrolled for forced compliance! i.e. Lake Pleasant, Lynx Lake and all the other bodies of water and their tributaries ... so YES, the sky IS falling ... I did read the AZ state law. I was looking for more insight/information.
