In gold-bearing country, prospectors look for gold where coarse sands and gravel have accumulated and where "black sands" have concentrated and settled with the gold Magnetite is the most common mineral in black sands, but other heavy minerals such as cassiterite , monazite , ilmenite , chromite , platinum-group metals, and some gemstones may ....
Sometimes the gold has been cemented into stiff clay; sometimes it is encased in conglomerate, or loose gravel and sand When cemented into a conglomerate (a rock of assorted river pebbles, sand and rock) the material has to be crushed or smashed up to extract the gold...
A small mine that produced 10,000 ounces of gold with a loss rate of 20%, which is not extreme at all, could mean 2,000 ounces or more sitting in the tailing piles waiting for the savvy miner with a proper recovery system The screening systems were tailored to remove the rock efficiently while passing nearly all the gold to the recovery system...
Clay and cemented gravel introduce even further difficulti When the gold-bearing material is completely dry and disintegrated, panning tests of the tailings should show that a good saving can be made, except perhaps with extremely fine or flaky gold Completely disintegrated material, however, is seldom obtained...
Glossary of terms used in the American Mining Industry Dry Diggings – Earth excavated in the summer and held to be washed in winter when water was more plentiful Dry Washing – Fine soil blown away, leaving the gold Drywasher – A common desert mining tool similar to a highbanker but doesn’t need waterIt operates by the use of wind The light junk material is blown off the top of ....
