  2. Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    A claim entitles the claimant to the mineral rights, nothing else, and taking a photo of someone lic. plate just proves the camera works, nothing else. Try photographing someone removing minerals if ya want to prove something, and good luck with that

  14. Retorts are fine if you have one and I don't have a problem with em. I also have had no problem recovering mercury from nitric. Aluminum foil put into the diluted nitric drops the mercury out. If tis is dangerous please let me know...
  15. Get a wheel, you can run it in reverse to amalgamate the gold and mercury then switch the polarity and pull the amalgamate out. Mustard gold is hard to recover without mercury.
