Mother Lode Gold Veins
Gold may occur as deposits called lodes, or veins, in fractured rock. It may also be dispersed within Earth’s crust. Most lode deposits form when heated fluids circulate through gold-bearing rocks, picking up gold and concentrating it in new locations in the crust. Chemical differences in the fluids and the rocks, as well as physical differences in the rocks, create many different types of lode deposits.
Revered for its aesthetic and metallurgical properties for thousands of years, gold is still one of the most sought after precious metals. There’s no question gold has played a unique role for humanity, for better or for worse. Today, we’ll explore the fascinating science behind the origin of gold atoms and some theories that seek to explain how the prized element got to where it is today, here on Earth.

Memorial Day speech
When I hear “Make America Great Again”… This is what I think about.
Sad to say many of our youth have been taught that America has NOT been great. They are being taught by the Progressives that WE are the problem with the world. Parents, it is up to YOU to deprogram what the Public Education system has taught AND NOT TAUGHT your kids. Watch the History channel with them. Make it a special night with special food or desserts. Tell them about WW2, who was involved and WHY we stayed out for so long. If history is continued to be rewritten by the Progressives…YOUR kids will not live free!!!!!
Why Government May Ban Gold Ownership
To “pay” with freshly printed script is the same as borrowing more. The game, if you want to look at it that way, get’s more interesting when you begin to realize that the “interest” has to keep rising as well as the total amount owed. The measure of the value of interest is the sum of nominal interest added to the the percent loss of purchasing power. Read more
Gold Recovery from scrap materials
Recycling of gold and other metals from industrial production a business is really shining.
Please remember that RECOVERY and REFINING are two totally different processes. With escrap, and with many other forms of gold scrap, the gold must first be RECOVERED from the scrap before it can be REFINED to high purity gold. Read more

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gold mining in Nevada, a state of the United States, is a major industry, and one of the largest sources of gold in the world. Gold was discovered in the vicinity of Carlin in Eureka County in the 1870s, but production was small. Placer deposits were discovered in 1907, but the deposits were too small to cause much excitement. It was not until 1961 that the Newmont Mining Corporation found the large low-grade gold deposit at Carlin that the mining industry began to take notice.
In 2015 Nevada produced 5,339,659 troy ounces (166.0820 t) of gold worth $6.194 billion, representing 78% of gold produced in the United States and 5.4% of the world’s production. Total gold production recorded from Nevada from 1835 to 2008 totals 152,000,000 troy ounces (4,700 t), worth over US$228 billion at 2011 prices. Much of the gold in Nevada comes from large open pit mining using heap leaching recovery. Read more
