    Check HUGE 246 gram Button! SMELTING GOLD - Colorado Gold Mining


    What a day! This 500 gram
    assay yields a 246 gram button!
    Melting rocks, blazing white heat and beautiful gold, what more could you ask for!
    Fire Assaying is a time tested technique to quantify precious metal values within any given rock.
    Melting rocks is just about as fun as blowing up rocks!

    I just wonder....... back in the old days when Assayer's would do this if they would possibly miss tiny specks of gold /silver / etc. in the slag if they would have rushed the assay And I wonder if prospectors today would pass up the possibility of re-smelting this slag in hopes of finding something ? Maybe the old or broken crucible might have something left in it One could only dream !!
