  1. Cool find It is eather a shoe or a die out of a stamp mill . The shoe went in the bottom of the battery box and the die went in the boss head on the stamp stem as time went on they would wear out thus needing to be replaced.You can find a lot of them at my place in the old tailing piles. Some have gold on them also but I have never seen one with that much on it. I have a old stampmill that I need to get running someday. Might be fun
  2. Occupancy on ming claims is only 2 week in 30 around here. Most tell them hey I just got here so they will have 2 weeks to move. I know of two guys that live on there claims full time they both have a Plan Of Ops. and have put up a bond. I love handing these to public sevants- http://www.incnf.org/publicservantquest.htm If they coming giving me any trouble.
  3. That is good news!! When are you coming up to try it out? Later,Matt
  4. Most pockets found above ground are the result of the vain matter eroding upon it's self and enriching the ground in that spot. This takes millions of years to happen and usually thousands of tons of rock have to erode to have a large pocket forum. I my opinion the three pocket theory is a bunch of B.S. I have never herd of or found any pockets in threes other that in Verne H. Ballantynes book and in one mine up Nourth. Most experiences I have had go something like this. We would find a pocket on the surface and take out some money. Then we would take are money and invest it in the hol

  7. Here is a picture of my Gibson mill you had the Pocket Hunter.Don't know why the picture won't get any bigger.I will talk more with Kuger later. I'm sure we can find something in your budget. Or we can get Vini to pull a arrstra stone around for you guys :innocent0009:
  8. I just love my little Gibson.Was yours a prospector's friend (5ton) or a pocket hunter?Don't try to talk me out of it (Family heirloom) :Huh_anim]: That Keene rc-46 is a good mill but the roller scraper is junk on it.You also have to make sure that the bolts stay tight on the mill. As for a sample mill I would recommend a small Jaw crusher 4x6 that has a adjustable jaw. You can use it without water and crush down to 14 mesh with the right jaw. If you what to actually mill it down to 40 mesh or what ever A small Gibson would be the ticket.But as I'm sure you are aware they are hard to fin
  9. Redneck rock crusher :Huh_anim]: Never happen. Unless the rock was very soft or the cylinder moved very fast like one of those old steam powered stamp mills.
  10. In no way is that on the level. If that TNT had set on that shelf the wood would have the nitro crystals on it also.
