Looking good my friend Wear ear plugs
Not much to the smelt very few tools add heat n pour not exactlyWould like to see a thread dedicated to smelting, I might even join in on the conversation.
A buddy of mine owns a small jaw crusher and a disk mill, the plates are made of ceramic.
The ore I work with comes off the table 90 percent or better pure no need to refine any further I just send it to a refiner for $$.. I don't do cuppelling or acid work ..Since the output from the stamp mill will require further purification.
A collector metal such as lead has a much lower melting temperature than gold and gold willingly alloys with the lead.
The button removed from the cooled slag then cupelled, as the lead melts the oxides shed off being absorbed into the bone ash leaving behind a button of gold with perhaps a few other metals of value ie: silver and platinum.
Gold and silver are relatively easy to refine, it's the platinum sisters that can cause you health issues if handled improperly.
I just have a tablet no computer I'm a dirt miner on miners salary these days if you know what I mean..Don't have good high-speed Internet? That would keep me from watching them.
