    The best feeling you can get

    the best thing that can happen, you try out a new system to find gold with, your first test is stuff you have already run and thought it was clean, then lo and behold, you find gold that your previous method somehow did not find, this is the stuff that makes you feel good, but then you wonder what else you may have missed. ah well now i have gold i did not have before, so life is good once again.

    still working on the claim that is owned by my group, so something i have been seeing but not sure about, been seeing stuff in the 20 to 50 mesh range, looks like gold (all nice and shiny on one side) i flip it over and it all a solid color, no shine to it at all. not sure how to find out its got any gold in the piece or if it's just a piece of pretty fake stuff. suggestions are welcomed on this.

    My first go to is a simple color test. Wave your hand over the particles in question while in full light. Gold has a gold color both in full and shaded light. If the particles lose their color when shaded then they are not gold.

    Enjoy the madness!

    PS it’s “Jerry rigged” not jury rigged (it’s an emphasis to the patched together gear the Germans were trying make work at the end of WW2.)

    nope Jury and rigged are both nautical terms that predate the Slang for German association due to ww1 era carrying over to ww2

    there is an actual term "jury rigged"

    it is not what "Jerry " built

    Then there's the niggard version that's always taken the wrong way. Niggard = Miserly person.

    Interesting to learn. You got me to look up a definition and indeed, I found this: The words niggard and niggardly are sometimes misinterpreted as racial slurs because they sound like the highly offensive word ******. However, niggard dates back to Middle English. The first element nygg-, nig- was borrowed from a Scandinavian source, and -ard is a pejorative suffix. The English word niggardly is a modern English formation from niggard. Therefore these two words are not etymologically related to ******.
