Miller Table Fine Clean Up of Flour Gold About a Hundred Bucks

For those of you who enjoy sifting out flour gold, this is a very good video about the Miller Table. It is said that it works better than a blue bowl. I have a blue bowl, and the video certainly makes it look like it is better. This would be handy for people who live in an area where there is a lot of flour gold. Of course, it all depends on what the rock is upstream to determine if a place has a lot of flour gold (and sampling).Maybe you will find this interesting also?

750, 585, And 417 Markings For Gold Jewelry: What Do They Mean?

Ever wonder what caratage is? I did, but then I read this article.

Since prospectors often try to sell gold, this article may be of use.
These strange numbers can be confusing. When letters are added, it can be even more confusing.

For All Gold Prospectors Who May be Having Trouble With All Browsers

I have had a problem with all browsers when trying to go to any web address. It was taking me forever to get to the address, and forever to load the web page. I finally found out what the problem is. I think it is a Windows thing.
If you are using Windows XP (which I use), follow these steps:
Go to your desktop
Right click once
Select Graphics Properties
Select Display Settings
Go to Screen Resolution and choose 1024x760
Click apply. Click OK.

I run 32 bit and refresh rate is 60 hertz. Leave that alone.
Hope this saves you time. I spent a lot scouring the net to find out what was wrong. Peace.

Yukon Presents An Opportunity for Discovering Rather Rare Placer Fields and Upstream Hard Rock Gold

Digging deeper for placer gold can be profitable. Sometimes the term placer mining means just that. It is easy to disappear from view in a waterway digging for placer. But there is an article at Gold Investing News that is really interesting.
Because of the Yukon's location and geology, much of it has been sparsely explored. The sources of many of the placer gold fields are unknown. A lot of placer gold has been found, but there is a lot left to be discovered. The holy grail is the source of the placer. Annual production of placer gold in the area is around 100,000 troy ounces.
Read about the gold rush.
