 It sounds like Mel got kicked out of her place( and lost internet connection) -not off the forum.

 The "little things"- like the BS in Wisconsin.



 Ben Carson- not so much.







I like Scott Walker!

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.

#253303 Fools Gold or just a Fool?

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?

Posted by weaver hillbille on 23 March 2015 - 08:56 PM

   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. 

#253225 Huge Austrailian Meteor Impact Discovered

Posted by weaver hillbille on 23 March 2015 - 06:46 PM

 I doubt it as that's pegged at the beginning( almost) of Earth's existence. I would think the continents have been moved around/ subducted  just a bit  since then.


 I say it was from a Gold star meteorite  accreted from it's supenova :yesss:  and the reason for so many big nuggies, dununda.

#251128 can you identify these rocks plz

Posted by weaver hillbille on 08 February 2015 - 09:03 AM

quartzite/granite gravel,,,,, 3/8inch(minus) gravel :idunno:   LAst pic through a mcroscope?  Hard to judge scale in your pics. THrow a coin in  to your photos, next time.  Where from. again?


  :brows: Where did you meet the alien who sold you the lunar rocks?

I think ya'll might have forgot about the 40 days and 40 nights of rain part, and the earth was flooded. :brows:

, many times.                  In many different cultures and locations..



 Flooded with water, flooded with basalt, flooded with volcanic ash,,,

 Short term shenanigans, imo, coupled with economic slowdown.


West Coast ports being constipated doesn't help anyone.
