Some species before and after

Post  davsgold on Tue Sep 19, 2017 2:57 pm

Some of the species we managed to find while in WA this winter.

They start off here.


Then they look like this


Then after the dolly pot from crushing they look like this.


And the fines from the same species


The end result.

Top going, well done Dave. Looks like a lot of upheaval/volcanic activity has taken place there.

Thanks Kon, yes plenty of mineralisation going on, Wink and with the newest updated software for the 7000 certainly helps in these sort of areas. Very Happy

Dave, nothing any where near like your display here but did pick up a specie with the 2300. No visible gold. Crushed it, and in a make shift Chinese take-away container used as a pan, could see tiny flakes of AU floating on the water. No doubt the 2300 is super sensitive picking up targets like this.
Makes you wonder how many species get thrown away as "hot rocks?"

Thanks Nightjar, sure glad you got some, and it was great to spend a day or two with you.

I just finished crushing another half kilo of species for a result of 20.8 grams.  I have some before and after pictures again and will put them up soon.

That is equal to 40kg/tonne if only I could find a tonne of species like these. Laughing

Hey Dave, You'll have to work on the "crusher/pulverizer" you mentioned, save time and effort.

Excellent result Dave
As Nj said , it gets you thinking of the screaming hot rocks that have been turfed that may have contained gold.

Thanks Dig24crt, and yes I reckon there would be plenty that get tossed away, mainly the ironstone ones and especially when some of them will be magnetic, I often give some of these suspect ones a wack with the back of the pick and mostly it's just purple/black dust. Laughing  

Anything that has quartz anywhere gets the full treatment, there are plenty that have quartz and ironstone mixed in the same rock, if it gives a signal then you know what to do with that one, but I bet there are heaps of ones that don't signal and have fine gold, it pays to carry a jewelers loop.  Wink

Thanks Axtyr, I reckon some of those tiny ones you have been collecting would look good in a nice gold bar as well. T06

I've been thinking about a little ingot lately because of yours and Jen's posts. I don't have enough small gold for such an impressive ingot as yours. I did pan a lot of gold in the 80's and made our wedding rings out of it.

Regards Axtyr.
