    Finding GOLD

    I am trying to reach the poster who smelted the gold on the Gold Rush show

    And I can't remember his name, he was located in Colorado. If anyone remembers him or if he see this, could they please PM me. Thanks in advance.

    Trying to replace a Cali smelter. Our needs outstrip their capacity because of Cali regs.

    We have two regular kilns, that is not the problem.

    Great video's, I watched all them, Jeff Williams is for sure the nicest though.
    I have quite a few empty 16.4oz coleman propane cans that could easily be modified as a slightly larger, taller and tougher furnace.
    I could also use them as crucibles for the larger furnaces.

    I have a regular 5 gallon propane tank that I was wanting to convert into a furnace too since I melt large pots of lead too.

Size:  21.9 KB afternoon, been wanting to do so for a year. Procrastination works great. Cut my brick in half, and started carving out the concave cavity with a broken knife I had laying around, to a depth of about 1". The melting dish, which is about 1" tall, sticks up about 3/8ths of an inch above the brick. The top brick, I cut with a wood chisel with straight walls. I cut the hole for the torch with a 1/2" spade bit, at 3/4" from the top edge of the brick, turned by hand to meet with the bottom of the cavity. So for about $2.00 for a firebrick, an a half hour of time, I now have a mini furnace to melt my micro fine gold.

    Winner winner chicken dinner. I thought his name was Dave, and I thought he posted under Goldpanner Dave, but the profile did not match. Thanks you

    What fuel are you using there and how long does it take to get a clean melt?

    That is propane pictured, but I also have Mapp. I haven't actually used it yet. Plans came from the Gold Refining Forum.

    Nope, wasn't me. I am a chemist, but not the person who did the smelting on the Gold Rush show. (I wish!)
