Extracting gold flakes from quartz may not be easy, but it is gratifying.During the gold rush in California between 1848 and 1855, miners successfully removed only 70 percent of the available gold using hydraulic mining methods. Extra gold-veined rocks sit near the surface of the earth, making it possible for gold addict to find these treasures.
Identify Real Gold
Gold is very heavy and as the earth shifts over time it sinks. This build veins of gold that sit directly on top of bedrock. These veins may be as thin as a human hair, or up to 18 inches deep. Veins of gold running through quartz rocks are common near old mining sites and areas near deep drilling. While iron pyrite and mica, sometimes referred to as fool’s gold, appear similar to real gold, there are some easy-to-analyze differences. Begin by taking the rock into the shade. Real gold retains its yellow sheen in the shadows. Fool’s gold will dull to gray when destitute of direct sunlight. If the substance still looks bright in the shade, attempt to dent it with a pocket knife or other sharp object. It should dent easily. Fool’s gold flakes or slivers.
Remove the Gold from the Rock
Certain rocks with gold veins are very valuable intact. If the rock has a beautifully visible attitude in it, try to find out if it may be worth more in its natural form before removing the gold. Before beginning the process of clear out gold from rock, gather the essential supplies. A large stone mortar and pestle crush rock into dust easily. Safety glasses protect eyes from bits of rock that may fly out of the mortar, and gloves reduce hand weakness and protect against blisters. A classifier or flour sifter is ideal for separating the panning dust from larger particles, and a towel keeps the rock pieces in one place when they break. Choose a large, heavy hammer to break large rocks.
Begin by wrapping the rocks in a towel. Set the towel on a detailed or rock surface. Wearing safety glasses and gloves, strike the rocks with the hammer until they break into marble sized pieces. Carefully open the towel and remove the largest pieces. Place the smallest pieces into the mortar. Put the larger rocks back into the towel and repeat this process until only very small rocks are left. Working in batches if necessary, use the pestle to crush the small rocks into dust. Separate the dust from the larger particles with a flour sifter or classifier, and repeat this process until only dust remains.
Panning for Gold
Pour the dust into a gold pan and fill the pan with water. Gold is very massive, and will sink to the bottom. With one hand, stir and knead the dust beneath the surface of the water. With the other, shake the pan gently to encourage the gold to sink to the bottom of the pan. Pour some of the water out and begin removing the top layer of dirt, sand, and dust. Any gold present will sit on the bottom of the pan. Add more water as necessary. When gold is visible, carefully remove it using an eye dropper and place it in a gold flake vial.
