 Dave,Thanks for the surfing,







" ,I would say the pinks, reds, and oranges are all garnets (various types..almandine, pyrope, hessonite, rhodolite) 



#257793 Cecil the lion

Posted by weaver hillbille on 30 July 2015 - 03:33 PM

 Yeah, I heard about that. I believe her Darwin award was for leaving her window down,


  Yeah , they're wild maneaters, no doubt  but the animal was not taken down because he was a  dangerous hazard,  or had turned into a domesticated  pest, raiding trash and such or involved in livestock killings.  

  He was lured out of a preserve for a( supposedly) easy kill.

 So, to try and make the case that "lions are dangerous so kill lions"( I know I am oversimplifying and that's not what you said) is pretty slim when you consider that this one was causing no problems.


 I understand wanting to buck the outrage over the incident-seems like everyone wants to pile on and cast the first stone at the" adulterer"( or the trophy hunter in this case).


 The guides he hired went for an easy mark and the dentist drew a short stick hiring them. NOw they're all  paying the price- some of it  probably unjustified..


 I saw the movie, Frank . It is in no way analogous to  CEcil's kill.  THe movie lions were hunting construction workers.  


Cecil hunted wild game with his pride.




 Maybe you're just saying not to judge the dentist-lest we be judged...

Yeah, not too long ago there was a news story about a cat that attacked a woman 
They are man eaters   plain and simple,

   Frank, the lion was in a  national park ,but was lured out to surrounding property to be hunted and killed. He wasn't hunting people or a hazard to them.

 12 Mi NNW of Rich Hill @ 5000' elev. is a nice place- no light pollution and lots of space to camp on our property.    Will be around sometime during the shower.

PM if interested.


 Sorry, not much space for camping- only 43 acres

:old:  DEtect by the light of the FUll Moon( and a few headlamps).


 Why no one has put lights on a detector coil yet, I'll never know.

you may be correct in some situations, but if high pressure was always necessary than a cyanide leach mine wouldn't work.


 Roger Wilco ,10/4.   :nutty: I am a good "assumer".


..... page 15 of "Advanced Prospecting and Detecting for Hardrock Gold" , ( what a great book!)

by Jim Straight states,


"(top of page) Geological studies have indicated that most epithermal veins formed less than a mile below the  earth surface, commonly within 1/2 mile. THus they have formed under low pressure and within temperatures estimated to be from 50 to 200 degrees centigrade."....................




."A few characteristics distinguish epithermal deposits.  These deposits are  found near the surface and mineralization occurs at a maximum depth of 1 km, but rarely deeper than  600 m. Due to their shallow depth, it can also be noted that epithermal gold deposits form under moderate crustal temperatures of 50-300oC, and under medium pressure.  These deposits commonly occur in island arcs and continental arcs associated with subduction. However, they can also be found in shallow marine environments and associated with hot springs. Due to their shallow-depth location, epithermal gold deposits are more susceptible to erosion; accordingly, these deposits represent a high-grade, easily mineable source of gold."


and http://goldminingand...03/epithermal-g 

Epithermal deposits occur in three different phases depending upon how much sulfur is present in the epithermal water. Deposits of this nature are classified as high sulfidationintermediate sulfidation and low sulfidation each of these types of deposits are identified by their alteration mineral assemblages, occurrence, texture and in some cases are even identified by the associated element. Pyrite is the most common of these minerals, but you can also find mercury, antimony, arsenic and tellurium. Included in this suite it is also possible to find the base metals copper, lead and zinc as well as gold and silver. Gold and silver may be alloyed together as the alloy electrum. old-deposits.html"

 NO loss if you drop Fbook entirely. I became free a couple years ago.


 NO regrets.

Posted by weaver hillbille on 25 March 2015 - 03:56 PM

 What should you do? NOt deal with stolen ore, not trespass and not ramble on without using punctuation.  And not blab about finding platinum if you don't know. 


 It's confusing.

#253234 Where does gold come from? with AZ Nugget Bob...

   Ok so Gold was scattered over the Univers by a Super Nova.   Gold and Quartz deposited in Fractured Rock making Stingers ,Seams and Veins.   They say the Temps of the Carrer waters was like 600F.   What Carried the Gold?   Only a few acids can strip !  

 Don't forget the tremendous pressures that solution is under. Solubility increases greatly under pressure: temperature and acidity aren't as critical as they would be under normal atmospheric pressure.
