    Crushing a couple pieces of quartz from Vein Mtn



    I was pleasantly suprised at what was in these. I only crushed a couple of the small 1 1/2 inch rocks that I show there. No telling whats in the other ones I got. I picked those rocks up cause they looked like the other gold in quartz specimens I found just those had no visible gold.

    Smash hell out of it AB . Good gold to be had in the rock .
    Even the press can hold good quantity , it just might not
    be as clean an purdy as the hard stuff . Them spotty specks
    of gold from some good crush can add up quicker than one
    might think and it sells easy . Maybe you can hunt down some
    good slide or hard run out there .

    Also ..................

    I would toss that piece of pipe with the cap and get a dig
    bar man . Cut it in half and you'll get the stamp plus a
    chisel / pry tool to boot . Works good with the driver .

    Thanks Astrobouncer,

    That reminds me I haven't crushed the ore that I brought back from Thermal City yet.

    If anyone is interested in building their own portable rock crusher here is a DIY link: A portable rock crusher.
    Takoda that is a great idea for a ramrod
    Harbor Freight sells a 68" 17lb one for about $25

    Tnx for pushing my rock crusher GoodGuy! I was about to include it here but you beat me to it. After using it, I made another. The baseplate is not needed and I trimmed the one handle to just enough to hold with one hand. Now the thing is lighter and better fits in a backpack. Tnx agn. TTC

    You are welcome Terry,

    Thank you for posting, I have had a nice rock crusher for a little over two years now and it's all due to your video
    I'll be using it later today and I cant think of any improvements I would make.

    Thanks for sharing the suggestion.
    ......And 5 years later it's still a great idea for someone who wants to make their own rock crusher
    That's why I added the Harbor Freight details.

    Part two is up guys. Crushed up another chunk of quartz from that same area of Vein Mtn. Used a new bigger badder rock crusher made by a buddy of mine on eastern us prospectors, his forum name is jim1966. I think its about 6 inches wide.

    Great video's as usual.

    I think I see why you are working so hard..... That ram rod on the new crusher is fearsome!
    It's the surface area at the head that's making it more difficult.

    Please don't take this the wrong way but I'm thinking a longer ram rod with a smaller diameter head will be much easier to operate and actually make shorter work of the crushing.

    Just try one like Takota suggested and see the difference. It wont matter that the diameter of the cylinder is a lot larger than the head of the ram rod. It's the weight of the rod being concentrated into a smaller area that will make it crush hard rock so much easier.

    You could cut the tip of the chisel point off of one of these and try it: http://www.harborfreight.com/18-lb-p...bar-95971.html
    It's amazing the crushing power that a solid steel rod produces when dropped on it's end.
