  1. Hey thanks a bunch. I have enough to test all I need and can get more easily. Wyndham
  2. Hey folks, it's been awhile since my last bout of gold fever but it popped up again. I have a question on "clay be gone" and other such animules. I have a source of clay/silt that has some micro gold in it. It's the wash water from a Pay to Play mine by the bucket. They wash some of the paystreak to get some of the muck clay out before putting it into 3 gal buckets, this is what I want to test.. I have no idea how much gold is in this but have about a gallon or 2 of mud. In small test amts I want to breakup this mud and wondered if Clay be Gone will allow the gold to settle out first if I use
  3. I have just put this out as an idea. I've thought of this for a shaker table for micro gold. My ultimate would be ultrasonic transducers but this as I say is just to spark ideas. Thanks for the feed back. Wyndham
  4. Has any one thought or tried using several pad sanders attached to a dry washer for vibrating the dirt? I know there's the electricity problem but that should be 110 off a small generator. Thinking out loud and cutting down on the weight maybe. Please let me know what you think, Wyndham
  5. I've been having some trouble pulling up the TDI forum over te last several days Maybe just bad timing on my part????? http://tdi.invisionplus.net/index.php?mforum=tdi&showforum=3 Wyndham
  6. I hadn't posted in quite awhile as I've been out trying to make a few $$$. I didn't realize till this morning the political crap starting to cone in. My wife says I'm not aware of what goes on around me sometimes. Anyway, I'll not rise to the political crap that seems to be in full bloom and if I'd been more aware, I'd have held off the solid gold respond and just keep to looking for gold. BTW I could use a map to some lost treasure or something, need to get my gold fever back up to 104 deg. Best to all Wyndham
  7. Yes you are kicking up dust. Yes you have a right and duty to have an opinion and express it to others as occasion arises. All of this is fine, but please don't expect others to follow your path. We are all sinners but we also have a redeemer so because we are all sinners we still may differ and still be Redeemed. My #^%t stinks and I know it but even the worst, uneducated, drunk lying on the bar room floor is still protected in America by the Constitution as an American and the sovereignty of this nation how ever it was formed. Beside no country on earth has clean hands, do you, I don't. If
  8. God knows him and hears our prayers, Blessing for all Wyndham
  9. Don't use the borax from the grocery store such as 20 mule team. It has other stuff in it. Get the stuff from a pottery supply place like Majorine(sp) or go over to the Mesa art center in Mesa and ask a potter over there where they get there supplies. It shouls cost about a buck or so a pound in small amts. You can also get some soft insulating fire bricks at about $3.00 ea and build a little furnace to use with the mapp gas so the flame comes under the crucible. Steve over at gold refiners forum has one he made and sells http://www.goldrefiningforum.com/phpBB3/ Hope this helps Wyndham
  10. One of the many new variables that has to be factored in is the 6.6 bil people alive today. Supply and demand based on an exploding population that wants the same standard of living as seen on TV changes the whole mess. 1980 China did not want the oil it does today. India didn't have the possibility of the economy it has today. We fueled the fire of demand now we have a fire storm that is global that we can't or should control. Our government has not got a clue on what to do. Even if they did , they couldn't agree to get together to piss on a fire in there own congress. Hyper inflation will
  11. Thanks for the info. It was something that just popped into mind a few nights ago. Wyndham
  12. What I mean by this is some 30 yrs back in a visit to the gold country on rt 49 I was told that the quartz I saw along the road in the pastures was not the type that carried gold, he called it bull quartz. It was a white quartz and there were many outcroppings in the fields as I rode with a fellow who knew the country. He never told me which was which and could have been blowing smoke for all I knew. Is there a geological time period that certain quartz came up that either did or did not carry gold. Just remembering back that i never thought much about it till now. Wyndham
  13. We've been having an interesting discussion over at the TDI forum on this very topic. Take a look if interested. http://tdi.invisionplus.net/?mforum=tdi&showtopic=433 Gets a little testy at times but all in all some good info, I thought. Wyndham
  14. Hey Chris, I didn't realize that Lake Lahontan went up to the Rye Patch area til I saw that aerial showing the ancient lake shore lines. I looked for the post in all the archives on different boards but no luck. It seemed that it was this fellows first trip over from the North West to visit family and he was in a wash with a new ML 3500-maybe and got a signal from a very hard packed layer in a gully going down to the lake. Now it might have been a calachie(sp) layer or other material as well. Just thought it might ring a bell about some different ground around the lake. I know over at Silv
  15. Max, it was one of those one time post that blipped up once and hat was it but it made me wonder about that area and what might be locked in the volcanic ash. Maybe Reno Chris knows something more about the area. Nevada nugget shooters board might have more info in the archives or someone there might know about the area. Wyndham
  16. Cool, I saw a thing on tv about a bamboo snake that was so small that even though it was deadly, the fangs were only dangerous if it bite you on the thin skin of the webbing between your fingers, then you died. Wyndham
  17. Several years ago, a fellow was beeping somewhere around lake Lahontan and found a nice nugget in a compacted volcanic ash layer. I don't know if this is something useful in this pocket nugget discussion, just thought it was interesting. If any one knows about the geology of this , please jump in. Wyndham
  18. Allen, just curious about the lay of the land on this. Are those boulders at the bottom middle or high in the draw. The reason for asking is that I wondering if this was a major flood or glacier melt or just a gully washer type event. Since I'm thinking about the ice melt, could that area be a glacial push or moraine that's weathered down from 10000 yrs ago.. Since I'm back here in North Carolina, I live vicariously through those that get out there and find stuff. Hope I'm not too nosy, Good, better and best of luck Wyndham
  19. Uncle Ron, looks like it hasn't moved very far from home. Maybe some other brothers and sisters waiting to be found. Good catch, Wyndham
  20. Thanks,Garimpo that's important info for Jim and all of us. Jim keep praying,Christ hears our payers, Peace and Healing Wyndham
  21. Just a general question on how this machine might stack up against a gold bug 1 or 2. Any thoughts. Wyndham
  22. Jim, my prayers and concerns like others, go out for you. I doubt any here have not had serious things, life has thrown our way, so we understand how serious this is. God has promised that He will not give us a burden greater than what we can bear, even though it sometimes feels that way. Words seem so inadequate at times like this but remember that Christ is the Word of God and He hears your's and others prayers. Words have power. Though we've only know about each other on this forum, Peace and healing, brother. Wyndham
  23. Yea but nobody's got it all. :icon_mrgreen: Wyndham
  24. Las Vegas was not built on winners. If the feds want you, they'll get a sky hook to reel you in. Subjective law enforcement is part of the new constitution, but that's just me, Wyndham
  25. Morning guys, interesting thread. I never thought there would be that much diversity in the "Blue Mud". Well NC in this area was part of an inland sea or something like that. The sandhills are only about 20 miles east and the slate belt was a swampy area that dried and compressed to slate. Some areas the gold/quarts intruded into this and also Rhyolite tuff. I don't know if it occurred when the slate was mud or hard slate. There's several lost ledge stories that deal with a gravel bar in the stream bank with large nuggets found and lost in the area. If those have any truth to them, it looks
