When you first look at a quartz vein in a rock it looks like a very narrow vein but in reality a quartz vein develops into a sheet like body of quartz or other mineral that is carried in the cracks and fissures in the rock by a hot aqueous solution that is deposited through precipitation.
Guy took a lemon sized smooth quartz stone from a gold bearing river and crushed It using a steel mallet and t-shirt. As he broke it up he checked for gold veins and found none but panned out the crushed rock and found what appeared to be nearly 0.5 grams of nice gold flakes. Anyone else ever tried that with good results?
More quartz crushing.Next step is to get a bunch more of this kind of quartz for further testing.
This is another years crush up from specimens Iv found with the metal detector sdc2300. I'll show you how to pan like a old timer showed me!
"Believe it or not 10 of those [specks] make a dollar. So it takes a lot of gold" he says with a laugh. Illinski and his wife spend many summer weekends panning for gold and he teaches a gold panning class for any would-be enthusiasts. He's mastered the art of reading a river and finding those milky quartz veins that may contain gold.
These machines are designed to crush any type of stone from quartz to limestone and everything in between. How much is able to be processed per hour will depend on the model you purchase. The intention of small rock crushers such as those we have here at Kellyco is to allow you to extract more gold instead of leaving any paydirt behind.
Today I crush up those Quartz rocks I found on the river in the search for more Gold! Thanks for watching!★↓SUPPORT MY WORK!↓★Crusty Rusty Shirts: bi.
It's a 11hp Honda driving the crusher and the crusher chamber is about 250mm in diameter. I got my ideas from the "Reeds rock crusher" that is found on the reeds prospecting shop website. Crusher mounted in a roll cage. I should have mounted it on rubber bushings but I was in a hurry so it will do for now as is. Crushed quartz rock
You want to be sure it is made of material that will be harder than the quartz and gold you're crushing such as steel or cast-iron. The crushing and panning method will destroy your piece of quartz. Make sure you're okay with destroying your quartz before starting crushing and panning.
The hard quartz had to be pounded into a powder by stamper batteries consisting of rows of iron hammers or stamps. Then water was added to the powder to create a slurry followed by mercury to catch the gold. This method worked well with high-grade quartz but not where the gold was fine or mixed with sulphides.
I crush up just a couple small quartz rocks from Vein Mtn locale that showed mineralization.
YepWelp have you ever been interested in crushing up some quartz rock to see what else might be hiding inside? If so please check out the way I have discove.
Free gold in quartz veins comes in all sizes with a full range of gold particles from obvious stuff easily visible to the eye down to gold that can barely be seen with a magnifying glass. The coarser stuff can be found with a metal detector while the smaller sized gold requires that the rock be crushed and the resulting powder panned.
