  1. I'm interested can you describe what items are changed in the Mod?
  2. I hope you know I was joking. Seriously Congratulations on your upcoming milestone achievement. We should all be so lucky!
  3. Chuck Your are scaring them away as fast as they come so sometimes as I'm sure you have been told many times before. "Silence is Golden"
  4. I really don't think color is important when panning so I would say N/A
  5. OK ever body is out of the pool and this is what we are looking like I have some iron wood I will be using to make a display mount in the coming days. I like that it has exposed the gold in the specimens I don't believe specific gravity is very accurate. Note he gold that was shed from these specimens in the back ground. Question for all is there a sealer I can now apply to these specimens to prevent any more shedding?
  6. At this point I have mixed the remaining chemicals and added it in with the original mix and dropped the specimen back in along with another piece that was promising. Let me know what you think
  7. Thanks Bob Believe me I have no misconceptions on the reality of a specific gravity test and actual gold content. I would be happy with half that. I will snap a picture of the rock that will be crushed to get the smaller deposits I have always liked your avatar " I will do Science to it " and we are...
  8. Thanks Bob I decided to break away the parts of the specimen that appeared to have very little gold and for the most part I was right. I mixed the two products and submerged the portion of the specimen with the most gold. The specific gravity came out to 2.36. I have a few smaller pieces to break down the old fashion way
  9. Ok I have some information on a way to do this with some simple products. Thanks Morlock "50 % Hydrofluoric acid is very dangerous to use and I wouldn't recommend it unless you have an extensive chemical lab background and the equipment to go along with it. I suggest you try Armor Etch or Whink rust remover..or a combination of both. Armor Etch is a cream and Whink a liquid and you would get better results with a combination of the two imho. Both contain very dilute Hydrofluoric acid and it will dissolve quartz but it will take A LONG TIME.... possibly weeks or even months
