I haven't been able to get out and do any treasure hunting yet. Every weekend that it didn't rain I had commitments, the ones I had free - it rained! I did manage to get a video done.
" How to clean up gold concentrates using mercury". I went threw the process that was taught to me 40 years ago by a old hard rock miner. He used this method to check samples. He did it all most every other day. He died in his late 90's. So I think his way of doing it was fairly safe, or at least as safe as it can be with out a lot of special equipment.
I was surprised when the video ended up 53 minutes long. I decided to break it up in to two parts. I was unable to shorten it any more, because I want to make sure I was clear on the dangerous parts.
I have big plans to get out this month, looks like we will have rain the first weekend - it figures! Well that's it until I something to report.
