About gold mining risks
Gold mining can be a very subjective business that sometimes can be thought of, as looking for a neddle in a hay stack. Sometimes even the wealthiest mining companies experience failure when exploring and mining for gold.
The company, Start Your Own Gold Mine, offers clients an introductory course and training into gold mining at a modest cost in time and money, yet it is thorough and an effort is made to adequately meet every conceivable challenge of small scale gold mining.
Still, the location of gold especially in high concentration is the result of variety of factors, including the client's work ethic, attitude, tenacity, and willingness to follow instruction and heed all consultation.
The adherence to all good social and legal norms has as much to do with the degree of success the client will have or not have as all that is made available to client through client's participation in the program Start Your Own Gold Mine.
Gold mining cannot offer absolute guarantee of financials gains or the attainment of limitless wealth. And each party being of sound reason shall accept and recognize all the inherent associated risks of gold mining.
Consultant as an expert, through its efforts and resources offers its best consultation, guidance, and mentoring to client, reasonable and attainable success, but can offer no absolute guarantees.
Client is assisted in creating, in building, in establishing his or her gold mining start up business with the understanding that Client in particular desires assistance in starting up a small scale gold mine operation.
The Consultant provides guidance, and that guidance needs to be followed in detail and spirit of complete adherence and cooperation, executed by Client.
However, the consultant neither provides Client the actual start up gold mine nor can take responsibility for the Client's gold mining company financial eventuality as a profitable growing business concern or failure.
The only assurance client can depend on is to produce or have produced for them 3 kilograms of gold, ideally considered pure gold, and net after expenses and taxes if any.
Client must understand and accept that in order to export their gold outside on Tanzania they may be subject to Tanzanian export procedures or laws, and need to pay an export fee as well as possibly pay other related fees.
In such an instance client may look to consultant for assistance in such a matter. This is however also not an obligation since there is a requirement for client to perform as detailed in the agreement and consider the attainment of their 3 kilograms of gold, ideally calculated pure, as a goal to be worked for.
Consultant represents having proven expert knowledge and experience in small scale mining operation start up at it's training and assistance locations in Tanzania and based on such experience offers client assistance, guidance, and consulting in achieving positive small scale mining start up results.
During Client's participation in consultant's start up gold mine assistance program if client is busy or unable for some reason to follow consultant's advise or call to action Consultant shall be undeniably authorized to execute actions on behalf of the Client.
If Client is not working on the program, as designed, outlined, and specified by Consultant then neither can consultant give Client the assurance of a positive outcome from participation in Consultant's gold mine start up assistance program and there will exist the possibility that Client will not realize a successful gold mine start up for which the Consultant bares no responsibility nor obligation to provide Client with continued services or benefits.
Consultant and or it's representatives are not providing a startup solely by themselves. They provide guidance, consulting, and mentorship for the startup of the small gold mining operation.
Meet the mentor to Start Your Own Gold Mine
Thank you for your interest in starting your own gold mine and investing in gold.
My name is Jean Louis and I am consultant in the program to Start Your Own Gold Mine.
My goal is to offer to our clients sustainable small scale gold mining business, by advising them, offering the guidance, consulting and our already established resources.
On the other hand, we are gaining on our side not only some kilograms of gold from the Client, but also new equipment and goodwill.
Since 2002. I have started, opened, registered, incorporated more than 100 international businesses helping worldwide entrepreneurs and businessmen to start their own variety of businesses.
In few of the Eastern European, former socialist countries, as a pioneer in gold trade, I have caused a true gold rush in terms of purchasing old, scrap gold. Many shops and businesses have opened and followed my business incentives.
You are being offered a productive, your own gold mining business, under my personal supervision until you have produced first five kilograms of gold.
And when I say 5 kilograms, I mean net, after expenses and taxes. It should be understandable that your total amount of gold produced will be more than 5 kilograms.
Once you are able to produce 5 kilograms, you will be able to continue your business for as long as you wish.
And you will be sharing the gold with us in the ratio of 3 kilograms for you, and 2 kilograms for us. Even if the initial consulting fee is just US $22,000, the total fee is to include the additional 2 kilograms of gold.
Once the program is finished, you may continue running your own gold mine for as long as you wish. At that time point, you will be skilled, trained, and with the full understanding on how to run your own gold mining business.
You will also have the mineral rights to at least one of the licensed mining sites, worth at least US $100,000.
Our company Start Your Own Gold Mine is located in Tacoma, Washington, United States. Our bank account is with the Wells Fargo bank. That is where the fee of US $22,000 is going to be paid in, upon the contract sign up. Let us be clear on that.
For those that wish to avoid sharing of gold without our company, the full program fee of US $66,000 includes the equipment to handle both hard rocks and alluvial gold, the contracted mineral rights to at least one licensed mining site with plenty of gold that are to be proven before the digging and mineral processing is to begin.
The information and description is accurate and straightforward.
I can help you with your first gold mining activity. You are well guided. You will go straight to the gold production time, within only 45 days upon your company registration in the country. Your claim and mining land is free. It is going to be organized for you and it is worth at least US $100,000.
Much of previous research and resources are available for your project. You are getting more than expected. The offer is there and may soon run out.
P.S. This is adventure
This is adventure. You must be ready for risks, mosquitoes, weather of 30 degrees Celsius or 86 degrees Fahrenheit, you must be ready for rough roads, accidents, dirty bathrooms or lack of bathrooms and toilets and most of all the fun. *It may become your most pleasurable adventure you ever had. Or it may become your another nightmare.*
We have started in 2012. our first gold mining operation
Don't make mistakes in understanding of this explanation. My English may not be the best, and we may make errors in writing. You should make your questions and clarify any misunderstandings.
Our clients and myself, we have got all problems due to mistakes in understanding, and also in errors in my writing on this website.
I am putting effort that there are no misunderstandings, yet there may be such.
A start does not mean that there is immediate income. Once you start your own gold mine, you will have the gold mine, equipment, mineral rights and people working. It required mining and hard work, to obtain the results. There is no specified time to produce the first 5 kilograms of gold. The program is to take as long as it takes.
Once we have started our own first production, back in 2012, we have produced gold in Tanzania, yet we have not made any income at that time.
Income is the difference between the full expenses including taxes and the sales of gold obtained through gold mining.
Gold production alone does not constitute income.
It requires the knowledge of administration and taxes to understand what is an income.
When you Start Your Own Gold Mine, you need to work and put efforts to obtain the first kilograms of gold. We have done our best on our side, that it becomes possible, provided you are following the guidance and consulting advices.
For income to come into existence, effort is required. We are providing the guidance and consulting that you put focus on proper efforts, so that you may gain true results in the program to Start Your Own Gold Mine.
Our associated company GOLDIVANTI LP have started and registered the company in Tanzania in 2012 with intention to trade gold. Instead of commencing trade of gold, we were forced to realize that cheap gold is not available in the country. As our Exit Strategy we have started gold mining in Tanzania.
We have signed up the contract with our local partner for the usage of the Primary Mining License. And we have got initially 11 licenses. During the next days and weeks, we have partnered with other small scale miners in Geita, Tanzania. And started producing first gold.
I personally believe that the best investment in gold is having our own gold production. Personally, I would be very happy if I could have someone to lead me and direct the work just as I am offering it to you.
We had to invest a lot to get to the first grams of gold. And we did it.
Our investment has gained a lot of resources, and with those resources, we may offer this consulting program to our clients.
From 2012 to 2017
Since 2012. we have helped businessmen to open their companies and business in Tanzania.
Before our own mining startup, we required many months to research the best methods for the gold recovery. Negotiations and research of mining lands in 2012 did take its time, money and energy. Negotiating the joint venture deals is not easy in general.
You are not going to follow the long path to success through all the burdens of exploration, self-learning and duration. You are going to be kick-started into gold mining business within 45 days upon your company registration in Tanzania. Yes, 45 days only.
With the knowledge and experience I have acquired, you are here to learn about the turnkey gold mining solution, so that gold production may begin within 45 days upon your company registration in the Tanzania.
Complete control and management of the gold mining company
My first dealings with gold started very early, and through all the years and care to do the business safely, I have later in 2010. started with business of recycling of old gold, gold scrap, and other precious metals such as platinum.
Anyone being in such business do not want to risk with the gold price. I have decided to open up my own gold mining in order to minimize risks with the gold price fluctuations. And I was right.
It is way easier to obtain gold from gold mining, than through the trade of gold.
In this business, you may have complete control and may monitor and manage the business yourself, or you may decide to choose or to delegate the management to us. It's your decision.
Most of all it is recommended that you have a complete insight into the business through our consulting and guidance service.
Profits may be substantial, yet the business depends mostly on the intention and persistence of its managers, both you and us.
We do have the necessary amount of intention and persistence. We are here to teach you, demonstrate you, lead and guide you through the first stages of gold production until you are able to properly copy, replicate and continue such gold mining business yourself.
You may later choose either to stop, as you will have acquired minimally three kilograms of gold in profits, or you may choose to manage such business yourself in the future, or eventually to delegate the management to our supervised management and earn profits on distance.
We have the necessary dose of intent and the necessary dose of persistence in achieving those goals.
The aim is a long-term and sustainable production of gold.
Earnings may be considerable, and in any case, you should be able to produce several kilograms of gold per month, even with a small investment in machinery, equipment, gold recovery technology, facilities, safety, and operational costs.
It is your own gold mining company
Your own gold mining company could be running within 45 days from its registration. Under our consulting and guidance and management services your own gold mining company may be producing clean gold within 45 days from the day of its registration in Tanzania.
The assumed and agreed condition for that to happen is that you, our client, must be on the ground and engaged in business.
This program is meant for beginning miners, gold prospectors or people wishing to invest into their own business or those who are already considering to begin with the gold mining business. You may be also interested in passive income while having managers to run the company in Tanzania.
Gold mining company structures
Our current projects are being developed in the Republic of Tanzania, East Africa.
We may develop projects in other countries, but that is what is on offer now under the project Start Your Own Gold Mine™ and for the fee of US $22,000.
If we are to provide the same type of the program in Ghana, the full fee is US $66,000 due to the factor of expenses.
Most affordable is to start in Tanzania, as our company has most of resources in Tanzania.
Company ownership may be structured in the manner as you advise or as you are advised for the optimum tax incentives.
You may hold and own your company entirely yourself. You may use another company, or your local company or an offshore company for confidential ownership of your own gold mining business. It is also possible to retain ownership and control through contracts which would not be visible in the public registry. It all depends how much privacy you seek.
Within the program to Start Your Own Gold Mine™, you will acquire, own and control your own gold mining company, either under your own, direct and public individual ownership or under company holding ownership. Advice and structure of the ownership of such gold mining company is included as part of our service of consulting and guidance.
Accounting will be handled by our staff and certified public accountants
Tax free income from your own gold mine
Depending of your tax residency or business structure, we may design that profits arising from your own gold mine, are paid almost tax free, after the taxes in Tanzania.
That is possible due to various constellations that might be possible with the production of gold.
In general, in many countries, purchase and sale of investment gold may be tax free. In some countries, profits arising outside of the country may be tax free and for some people receiving dividends from business companies may be tax free.
We are going to look into your business and tax situation, depending of your residency and laws, and we may design preferable agreements which you may use to receive the tax free funds and profits out of your own gold mine.
Instead of profits in money, it is also possible to receive gold bullion or gold bars out of the gold mining production.
A prepaid forward contract for purchase of gold or gold production agreements may be contracts which you may close with your own company.
Once investment gold bullion and gold bars have been delivered to you, you may store them as investment or alternatively, you may sell them and gain profits tax free.
It really depends of your own tax residency and business structure. We may help and assist you with proper setup, and we have contacts to attorneys and accountants that may advise you further on taxes and legal matters.
Kick-starting the gold mining business
Due to all the previously established and ready resources as provided from our side, such as available licensed mining sites, mining licenses, skilled people or labour, efficient gold recovery technology, and privileged benefits to use the mining machinery, you are kick-starting the mining business.
You are kick-starting the gold mining business, without much preparation on your side.
You are saving considerable amounts of money, as you will avoid all the research, exploration, preparation, talks, and numerous failures that we have already gone through.
Management and control of gold mining company
There are two ways of management and control of your own gold mining business provided under consulting, guidance and management services of our company:
Gold mining project that you are going to continue managing without our assistance
Gold mining project under delegated management rights.
You are going to learn how to manage your own gold mining business
Under our supervision, consulting, guidance and management, you are going to spend one to three months, even more, until you have successfully produced first quantity of gold. In fact, we are making sure that you succeed. It is our responsibility that you become able to begin your own gold production.
That is learning process where you are following steps, reading through the documentation, understanding legal and practical aspects of the gold mining business, and train yourself in handling people and management of the project. You are being assisted throughout the beginning stage, and you may either sit down and watch what we are doing or involve yourself in the business. That is entirely up to you. We advise you to actively involve yourself.
After successful first one to three months of your learning process, you will become able to control, manage and run your own gold mine.
Running your own gold mine under our supervision and management
After you have successfully produced the first quantity of gold in your own gold mine, you will be convinced that your gold mine is giving results. Our award will be paid after you have already got profits, in fact, we are going to receive the next small quantity of gold for our company, as award for the consulting, guidance, management and initial production of gold. That is going to be one time payment in gold or equivalent amount of money, as agreed upon final contract. You are paying the consulting fee once you have obtained first results: gold.
After that, you may decide to run your own business yourself or you may delegate the management to us. If we monitor and control, or manage your business and your own gold mine, you would be in Joint Venture with our company, or partnership, and you would be receiving certain agreed and larger percentage of gold production, while we would be retaining smaller percentage of the profits for management of your own business.
Previously available resources
We have been investing since 2002. into variety of businesses, including business as gold scrap dealer, gold trade and investment in diamonds. Through the time, we have acquired new companies, opened up new branches in the world, and gained valuable connections, know-how and experience. Resources that we have created are in place and ready to be used, free of charge, for your own gold mining project.
To open a gold mine in a short time is very difficult. It takes many months of preparation and then a lot of travel, interviews, analysis, employment of people of various qualifications, exploring and finding adequate land claims with gold deposits, building houses for employees, providing security, training staff, finding good locations, concluding contracts and closing Joint Ventures with license holders.
There are following available resources that you may be using, depending of the agreements, and those may be used to lessen your financial burdens, and to minimize the risks in business:
previously inspected mining sites, with licenses or without, where client may spare the time in assessing the feasibility, the business and living resources, and confirming the existence of gold and gold bearing ores, these mining sites may contain already resources for our clients, such as crushing machines, many deep mining shafts with ore bodies open for exploitation, water sources, people available for recruitment right away, timber, houses for offices and accommodation, pipes, pumps, winches, metal containers, recirculating water pools, and many other resources that may be ready for mining operations,
few hundreds of mining license holders that are willing to enter negotiations with our company or our clients,
equipment that has been carefully chosen to recover 98% of the gold particles, provided that full technological methods have been used as advised by our company, more general description of equipment for gold recovery may be found on the page about SYOGM™ Gold Recovery Plant,
a pool of more than 1,300 people for recruitment, their profiles, pictures, information, resumes, previous conversation, interviews and performance records when available,
machinery for rock crushing and grinding, that may be borrowed to clients as a privileged benefit, worth over $30,000, and where same type of machinery may be purchased by clients when necessary and when required,
contacts to attorneys, accountants, officers, ministry, including maps of important locations, with exact way-points to find the mining sites, people, houses, hospitals, shops, technicians, water sources, all this nicely prepared for a choice of mining sites, so that future clients may spare the time, money, energy and efforts,
Those are the resources. Resources that we already have, you may use during your startup stage to open up your own gold mining business. The resources that we have established are precisely the reason why we can offer you such consulting and guidance to open up your own gold mine.
Benefits by using our resources
By using our readily available resources you are gaining following benefits:
You are saving on expenses of the equipment, as we are using low-cost, patented and improved gold recovery methods, that has been designed to otherwise recover the smallest gold particles that some company are leaching by using cyanide;
You are kick-starting the gold mining business, without much preparation on your side;
You are saving considerable amounts of money, as you will avoid all the research, exploration, preparation, talks, and numerous failures that we have already gone through;
You are saving on expenses of the equipment, as we are using low-cost, patented and improved gold recovery methods, that has been designed to otherwise recover the smallest gold particles that some company are leaching by using cyanide;
You gain immediate orientation, accommodation, you gain access to labor, stuff, legal and administrative services, accountants and assistants, you are kick-starting your own gold mine.
It would be very expensive to start the adventure on your own and it would take with best efforts at least six months or longer, when you come to Africa to start from the beginning in this business. You would spend a minimum of US $50,000 during the exploration stage, probably way more, and not to mention that you would have to solve the problems about people who give you intentionally false information or problems about the corruption that is widely present. Any corruption and crime is reported from our side and we never enter into suspicious transactions. But someone else, as some of our colleagues from Italy, would easily be lured into corruption cases and in the end could be expelled from the country or even end up in jail. Just by simple and innocent mistake, such as it is buying a single diamond, when you don't have a proper license for it.
Our resources already exist: established businesses, lodging, office, staff, interpreters, pumps, beds, houses, land and location, contracts with licensees, machinery, generators, solar energy, pipes, boilers, water tanks and so on.
Such resources may be used in this venture.
Otherwise, if you do not make use of the existing resources, the cost would be much higher in the first stage, and you would spend months and months more just to establish your own location. We want to avoid it.
Turnkey gold mining business in Tanzania
Starting your own gold mine with our assistance, consulting, guidance and management offers you a complete turnkey gold mining business. Location is in Tanzania, as of now.
You are getting following valuable product:
100% ownership of the company that is going to receive the profits from gold mining;
if necessary, you may get an anonymous holding company for privacy purposes;
contracts for office, as office space is required by law;
you get our management, our staff, labor, consulting and guidance at the place;
you get the claim, the location or land with gold deposits, by means of Joint Venture with the license holder;
you get a certain security, homes, staff, workers, tools, machines, gold recovery equipment, so that the gold can be really produced, melted on the spot and sold to local dealers for the gold price;
you get a complete production line;
Such production course requires persistence and intention, and our group has the necessary dosage of the persistence and intention.
It is very rare, to find someone dealing or running a gold mine and willing to open up their business secrets, details and to offer you a complete solution. We would be happy if we had someone to carry out the training, guidance and consulting for us, just as we are doing it now for our clients.
I believe that is why it is an unique opportunity.
Initial expenses and minimal investment required
Having place of life in Tanzania, local small scale miners do not need much to invest in order to start gold mining activities, as it is required for a foreign investor. The small scale miner who lives at the mining site, where he has a mud made house and his family, and two or three children, he uses a pick and shovel, as tools both attached to the same shaft as his only venture or investment. Even for that tool he can get a loan and pay it later to a local blacksmith. Tools are produced out there on the land, right away, a real blacksmith produces tools and hammers the iron on the wheel of the truck, and metal is being heated by using a hand run air pump. For a Tanzanian small scale miner investment amount may be as low as zero or 3,500 Tanzanian Schilling or around US $2.5 for a necessary tool.
It is possible to produce gold for someone living there, almost without any investment but self determined work.
We are foreigners in Tanzania and we spend few thousands dollars just to prepare and arrive to the country. We have totally different schedule of expenses than local Tanzanians.
Some initial expenses
Unfortunately, for us foreigners, it is not possible to have it easy like local Tanzanians, we ought to always pay a business visa at the entrance, it has been U.S. $250 or about €200 for each person. Then we are required to do business through a company, incorporation and startup costs costs approximately another few thousands of dollars.
We are bound by the law to evidence an office or commercial space, and also we want to have the accommodation for people. There are houses for rent at few thousand dollars per annum payable in advance. So right away we have to pay for 12 months ahead with the necessary home and office, you would then be able to go to the tax office and get the tax identification number (TIN). There are several thousands of dollars or dollars in expenses just before we can get a simple tax number.
Diesel or gasoline is cheape in Tanzania in comparison to some other countries, approximately 50% cheaper than in Europe, the price being almost the same for both types of fuel. But every time we require the use of off-road vehicles, because the asphalt there is present only on main roads and off-road vehicles consume more than ordinary passenger cars. That means for every "exit and return from the field" it can be calculated about US $100 to $200 in expenses.
There are other expenses such as:
safety on the site with gold deposits, costs at least few hundreds of dollars, although such fencing is very cheap in comparison to western countries;
accommodation and building of houses for the workers, kitchen on
a field, let's say it costs US $800, so it really is not much when compared to western barracks or prefabricated houses, but this is again an additional cost;
- then the various costs of containers, water tanks, pumps, solar
batteries, the cost of operation to extract gold;
### Levels of investment required
The level of investment in a gold mine we may divide into four initial groups:
a minimum investment for initial expenses is about US $20,000, which is used to start a business and company, obtain staff, solve tax problems, acquire the office for one year, get a fully working production plant, small machinery, necessary pumps, and safety measures;
in addition to that amount one would need few more thousands in order to cover the operating expenses of labor, diesel or gasoline, and other energy, food, transport and work expenses;
In general, we recommend at last US $30,000 for the gold mining business which foundation is team of diggers, instead of an excavator.
When excavators are involved, one may think of minimum of at least US $50,000 for initial startup expenses. Such excavator would be second hand and would be transported from United States or Europe, it would take a month to arrive to Tanzania.
If we speak of small scale mining for a foreigner, one would in reality need way more investment and machines in order to run a productive gold mine:
The true minimal investment amounts for a serious operation are way above US $100,000.
In order to start without large equipment, you do need minimally some US $20,000 to US $30,000. We can provide for some operating expenses even if the initial investment amount is low. In fact a successful gold mine should be sustainable by its production. We are making sure that production happens, and one may expand the investment once there is gold produced.
Minimal investment levels | Time frame to start | Amount in USD | Amount in EUR ---------------------–—|----------------–—|----------–—|---------–— Minimal investment | Within 45 days | US $22,000 | € 20,000 Reserves recommended | | US $10,000 | US $7,500 With a second hand excavator | Within 60 days | US $50,000 | € 35,000 With second hand trucks, off-road vehicles, compressors, generators, expanded gold recovering equipment | Within 60 days | US $200,000 | €150,000
Serious gold mining startups cost way more than the above shown minimums. And such minimums are yet considered small scale mining.
The minimal investment is calculated for the processing of both soft and hard materials. Soft material is such that may be processed immediately with gold recovery rate of up to 5-6 grams per ton of material. Hard material requires extra efforts and gives up to 50 grams per ton, depending of the location. One shall be quite happy to have 26 grams such as it is on our land.
Investing with larger machines would provide more efficient processing of gold ore, and such equipment consists of following:
Levels of investment required
The level of investment in a gold mine we may divide into two initial groups:
- a minimum investment for initial expenses is about US $22,000, which is
used to start a business and company, obtain staff, solve tax problems, acquire the office for one year, get a fully working gold recovery production plant, small machinery, necessary pumps, and safety measures;
- in addition to that amount one would need few more thousands in order
to cover the operating expenses of labor, diesel or gasoline, and other energy, food, transport and work expenses;
In general, we recommend at last US $30,000 for the gold mining business with the foundation of team of workers, miners, diggers, instead of an excavator.
When excavators are involved, one may think of minimum of at least US $50,000 for initial startup expenses. Such excavator would be second hand and would be transported from United States or Europe, it would take a month to arrive to Tanzania, and overall time for excavator from the time of its purchase to the time of its production start, could amount to 2 months and longer.
If we speak of small scale mining for a foreigner, one would in reality need way more investment and machines in order to run a productive gold mine:
- trucks and off-road vehicles;
- multiple SYOGM™ Gold Recovery Plants;
Investing with larger machines would provide more efficient processing of gold ore, and such equipment consists of following:
- Excavator for digging;
- Hydraulic hammer for the excavator, speeding up digging of the rocks;
- Special grips for excavator;
- Compressors for pneumatic hammers which are also used for air supply in mine shafts;
- Trucks to transfer material are perhaps the most profitable;
- Crushers are required to convert gold ores into pulverized material;
- Off-road vehicles;
A sustainable gold mining business may quickly, within few months, turn into a public company with shares being sold on international markets, also attracting new investors.
We are going to provide the team to make a professional and functional gold mine.
Consulting and Guidance For Your Own Gold Mine
Our consulting fees are paid once we have established gold production for you, and once you have been trained and have successfully understood details of the operation. Consulting and guidance in the first stage is complete once you have produced first three kilograms of gold.
Our consulting fee, depends of the initial amount and values of the operation that we provide to you. With the minimal investment of US $22,000 plus operating expenses, our consulting fee is 2 kilograms of gold but only after you have got your own 3 kilograms. In fact, you are not paying it directly, the gold mining plant is going to produce our consulting fee. And you will know that your production is running. Only then is such a consulting fee paid. It is one-time fee.
You may then continue to manage the business yourself. If you choose that we manage the business for you, we would retain one part for management and you would be paid one part of net profits out of your own gold mine.
Your Own Sustainable Long Term Gold Mining Business
The final product that you are going to get with this program is your own sustainable long term gold mining business.
Estimated Gold Production
The Equipment factor relates to the actual and potential capacity of the equipment. How much tonnes of ores may the equipment handle? What equipment is there and available to handle the volumes of ores? It does not say nothing of the actual volume of ores being processed. It relates just to the potential capacity and increase of such equipment.
The Quality factor relates to the quality of gold, its shape, sizes, behavior during the process, it relates to gold purity and any quality of gold bearing ores. All those details matter when devising a system to recover gold. They also influence the expenses.
The Volume factor is the expected and actual volume that has to be processed or have been processed. The Volume relates to quantity of excavations and quantity of processed ores.
One such example of the calculation is presented here:

- EQV Formula - Example Evaluation of Future Gold Production
Any present gold production may be improved by using the EQV Formula for gold production as devised by Mr. Jean Louis. Be it a large scale mining, small scale mining or artisanal mining, or recreational gold prospecting, just any type of gold recovery may be improved by observing simple factors such as Equipment, Quality and Volume that relate to gold production. In this article we are reviewing the real world example on an artisanal mining site in Tanzania, where certain equipment and expenses have been proposed that are contradictory to itself and its own capacities, and that would become nothing but liability, instead of an income bringing asset.
- I'm interested in mining my own gold mine. Let me know the process.
MOST IMPORTANT IN GOLD MINING: Please keep in mind, that MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN GOLD MINING is the availability of GOLD BEARING ORES. Do not focus on exploration, prospecting, if you can focus immediately on the gold bearing ores. You want a gold mining business that creates income for you. You do not want a long-term exploration, and searching for gold, when gold bearing ores have already been found. My business is to help you to COME STRAIGHT to gold bearing ores.
- Frequently Asked Questions and Answers on How to Start Your Own Gold Mine
Many clients send us their questions on how to start their own gold mining company, and we answer them. Questions are then edited and published on our website Start Your Own Gold Mine so that other clients may benefit from same answers, and understand what is all necessary to start a gold mining company, what gold mining equipment is required, how to conduct gold prospecting, how to obtain licenses, how to learn about the gold bearing ores, and in general how to conduct the gold mining business.
- Plan for Destruction of Mosquitoes and Their Larvae - by Mr. Matijas Imrešković
The smoke destroying mosquitoes is the same, only the way in which the smoke is transmitted different from each other. Mosquitoes hatch at all possible places where there is a minimum amount of water that is not controlled by man and not just water to mosquito eggs fertilized required blood of mammals, ie. the blood of people and animals of all kinds of mammals. After mating, which occurs only three days after the first flight of the young mosquito (female) out of the water, the female lays eggs on the edge of the water surfaces that is raising the water or flood and benefiting water temperature higher than 11° C hatched larvae and the process has begun. In Africa, it is necessary to monitor the whole year because the heat of water is rarely less than 10° C when it encourages mosquitoes to breed. Through good monitoring can be successfully used to determine when thrown follows young mosquitoes from the water and then make The smoking in the way that best suited for the occasion, and the continuous process can significantly reduce the population of mosquitoes that can go in your favor and weather conditions such as wind or calm the time that must be taken into account.
- Software we are using in the program Start Your Own Gold Mine
Here is the description, listing and download of some of the small and large software we are using in the program Start Your Own Gold Mine. Small scale mining without mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology simply does not function well. Same is with software. Repetitive tasks and calculations, estimates and the EQV Formula for gold production demands the usage of programming languages and specific software tools.
- Practical application of the EQV Gold Production formula
Here are few practical examples of the EQV Gold Production and how our company is using it to assess the present mining operation and to predict our investment and the future gold mining production. The formula is simple and applies to small scale mining of gold and may apply to other types of minerals as well. The full and expaned EQV formula relates not only to the production of gold but to the income of gold mining production, operational expenses and other expenses. Every small scale mining company may increase and improve their outputs by observing the factors that are most important and relate to each other, the present and future Equipment and its capacity and usage, the Quality of ores, gold and processing and the Volume of ores being excavated and processed.
- How to obtain gold bars and bullion through Prepaid Gold Forward Sales Contract
There are few steps to follow on how to obtain gold bars and bullion through Prepaid Gold Forward Sales Contract with companies that have mineral rights and mining sites under control. One need to obtain proper information of the companies and their business, to exchange the due diligence, and to fully understand the process of production of gold on the mining site.

- Prepaid Gold Forward Sales Contract by Start Your Own Gold Mine
Prepaid Gold Forward Sales Contract as provided by company Start Your Own Gold Mine is a good way of financing mining production where the buyer of gold may obtain the asset with 20 to 30% discount, and the producer obtains the new mining equipment and machinery and thus enlarges the production capacities. Details are specified on this page.
- Prepaid Gold Forward Sales Contract
The Prepaid Gold Forward Sales Contract is a contract between two parties to deliver the gold in the future for prepaid payment and at a price agreed upon the time of the contract. The Tanzanian mining company Start Your Own Gold Mine agrees to deliver gold bullion or raw gold at some time in the future in return for the agreement and payment from the other party. The mininig and production of such gold is thus being financed by the buyer of gold bars for the mutual win win situation.
- How providing benefits to the producers of gold brings benefits back to gold buyers
Providing benefits to producers of gold, such as prepaid forward contracts for gold purchase with fixed prices and sometimes with discounts, finances the producers and gives the producer the incentives to sell the gold to such gold buyers. Investment into small scale mining companies may bring equivalent investment such as those with larger mining companies. Providing equipment, excavators, bulldozers, trucks, containers, hydraulic hammers, winches, all that brings benefits to mining companies who have the gold bearing ores, the administration in place and proper technology to deliver the results.
- Qualification requirements for executive staff in the Start Your Own Gold Mine company
The qualification requirements as listed on this page provide you with references to education and online resources, so that you may qualify for the position of executive staff within the Start Your Own Gold Mine company. The resources and courses you may attend by following the instructions may empower you as an individual and staff member, and as a businessman.

- Services of Start Your Own Gold Mine company
Start Your Own Gold Mine company provides various services including the management of mineral rights, sales of mining and prospecting equipment, training, consulting, sales of ores, evaluation and assaying services of ores, gold and other minerals. We try to help our clients whenever possible. Foreign investors require assistance in Tanzania to bring the vehicles, machinery, to purchase the proper equipment for mining, to know the local customs, tradition, rules and laws. We are providing assistance and support for mining businesses in Tanzania and in other countries.
- Deliver, part of the RCD Formula: Reach, Connect, Deliver
Deliver is a part of the RCD Formula as invented by Mr. Jean Louis: Reach, Connect and Deliver, are the three factors generating the wealth. By increasing and improving one of the factors, the others are increasing and improving automatically. It is the formula of success to reach to potential clients, to connect to them in a personal relation and to deliver more and more goods and services. Most people fail to recognize that they are not reaching enough, not adveritising enough and often not delivering enough to create wealth. By carefully observing the factors relating to creation of wealth, it is practically possible to devise the business that generates wealth.
- Memorandum and Articles of START YOUR OWN GOLD MINE LIMITED
The objects for which the company is established are to provide assistance, advisory services and consultancy with regard to business planning, business analysis, business management, and business organization in regards to starting new gold mining businesses in Tanzania, by introducing foreign investors and facilitating investments into the country.
- Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection
Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection - Before important decisions can be made in relation to a mining site, our company is conducting a Preliminary Site Assessment and Inspection project that has the purpose to diligently assess and analyze the life and business resources available on the mining site in order to understand what is needed and wanted for living and mining activities in the future, as also the previous gold mining history.
- Software we are using

- I have discovered the key to a happy and successful life
When I was deeply in difficulties and in much stress I came across to realize that when you put faith and hope in something you wished to archive, but you found it difficult, you will surely raise a positive answer in a negative world.
Glossary of mining terms used in the book The A.B.C. of Mining, it is alphabetical list of technical terms in some specialized field of knowledge; usually published as an appendix to a text on that field.
- Odds and Ends
A miner's inch of water varies in different States, and is, therefore, not a fixed quantity. In some States it means the quantity of water that will flow through an orifice one inch square on the bottom or side of a box under a pressure of four inches. Under these conditions a miner's inch will discharge 2259 cubic feet, or 17,648 gallons every twenty-four hours, which is at the rate of 12 gallons a minute.
- Atomic Weights
The atomic weight of a mineral is the proportion in which its elements are united, i.e., they represent the weights of the different atoms in the minerals. Hydrogen, being lightest, is made the unit.
Dynamite should be stored in a magazine which must be dry, cool, and well ventilated. Bricks are best, but when built of wood, the frame should be covered inside and out with boards allowing the air to have free circulation between the walls, so that the inner wall may not be heated by the sun.
- Medical Hints
Miners as a rule are a healthy, hardy lot of men, but nevertheless they are occasionally taken ill, and there is very seldom a doctor near at hand. Moreover, by the very nature of their work they are particularly liable to accidents. The so-called miner's consumption is caused by want of fresh air. The miner passes most of his life in places where there is a great deficiency of oxygen. Deep down in the mine the air is usually very bad, being full of smoke and damp, and the hut in which he sleeps is too often overcrowded, while the places in which he seeks his amusement, should he live in a mining camp, are usually little better.
- Floating a Company
Should the prospector discover mineral that increases in amount as the mine is opened, and shows that it is likely to prove a profitable deposit, he will have little difficulty in selling out to some wealthy syndicate. But if his mine is likely to become a big producer he should try rather to organize a company, of which he should be a shareholder--the controlling one if possible--as then the output of the mine will probably make him a rich man. It is rare that a prospector selling outright obtains anything but a fraction of the value of a good mine.
A man, to make a success of prospecting, must have what is known as "a good eye for a country." Given that faculty he will readily pick up the little knowledge of surveying that is sometimes almost indispensable. A tape measure, and a prismatic or surveying compass, are all that he is likely to require in laying off to his own satisfaction the extent of his claim, or any similar simple operation. The surveying compass has two fixed sights, and a Jacob staff mounting, into which a wooden support is inserted. The north end of the compass is always pointed ahead, while the needle, which of course indicates the magnetic north, gives the bearing of the line run toward that north.
- Camp Life
The Indian truthfully observes: "White man make heap big fire; keep far off. Indian make little fire; get close. All same." The small fire does best in the circular tepee tent, made of canvas or leather, in use on the plains. The tepee is quite an institution, but it is generally as full of smoke as a kitchen chimney, and for that reason cannot truthfully be recommended. In theory, the smoke should all pass out of the opening in the top.
Although the scope of this work does not include the very complex problem involved in the working of a great mine, prospecting and the simpler mining operations are so intimately connected that it would not be desirable to make mention of the one and ignore the other, because the prospector must perforce become a miner as soon as he discovers mineral, even though his operations should not go beyond a shallow trial shaft.
- Economic Ores and Minerals
Aluminum is derived from two ores, cryolite and bauxite. This metal has made rapid strides into favor during the past half-dozen years. Although known since 1827, it remained a rare substance in the metallic form, though it is the most abundant of any of the metals in its ore. In ordinary clay there is an inexhaustible source of aluminum. But the ores that yield the metal cheaply are few. Until recently, cryolite, found abundantly in Greenland, was the chief source of the metal, but now bauxite is used in its place.
- Blow-Pipe Tests
As a means of readily detecting the presence of minerals in their ores the blow-pipe, in the hands of a skillful operator, is unrivaled. Nor is this skill at all hard to come by; two or three weeks' patient study under a good master should teach a great deal, and subsequently proficiency would come by practice in the field. Unfortunately, some very clever men have become so enthusiastic as to blow-pipe work that they have devised methods by which the amount of metal in an ore as well as its nature may be determined, but in so doing have so enlarged the amount of apparatus, and complicated the tests so seriously that the simplicity of the blow-pipe outfit is in danger of being lost, and its chief advantage of being forgotten.
- How to test for minerals
When silver must be separated from gold, it is sometimes convenient to increase its proportion by the addition of some known weight of the inferior metal. After fusing, the globule is placed in nitric acid, and the silver parted from the gold, which may then be weighed. This result subtracted from the weight of the original globule gives the amount of silver.
A few simple tools and a not very deep knowledge of assaying, with an observant eye and a brain quick to deduce inferences from what that eye has seen, are the most valuable assets of a prospector. In time he will gain experience, and experience will teach him much that he could not learn in any college nor from any book. Each mining district differs from every other, and it has been found that certain rules which hold good in one region, and guide the seeker after wealth to the hidden treasure that has been stored up for eons of time, do not apply in another region.
- The ABC of Mining, by CHARLES A. BRAMBLE, D.L.S.
The ABC of Mining, free book provided by Start Your Own Gold Mine and written back in 1898 by Charles A. Bramble, D.L.S. Treating fully of exploratory and preparatory work of the physical properties of ores, field geology, the occurrence and associations of minerals, methods of chemical analysis and assay, blow-pipe tests, promising indications, and simple methods of working valuable deposits, together with chapters on quartz and hydraulic mining and especial detailed information on placer mining, with an addenda on camp life and medical hints.
- How businessmen take the natural risks of mining
There are unavoidable risks of mining itself, which may, at any moment during the year lost, call for increased expenses and increased faith in ultimate success. To the mining man who makes money by the business, the natural risks of mining is all he will take; it is sufficient; and when he invests more money in machinery he takes good care that he takes no chances of either failure or delay.

- Mining Appliances and Methods a Temporary Forge
What prospector has not at times been troubled for the want of a forge? To steel or harden a pick or sharpen a drill is comparatively easy, but there is often a difficulty in getting a forge. Big single action bellows are sometimes bought at great expense, and some ingenious fellows have made an imitation of the blacksmith's bellows by means of sheepskins and rough boards.
- Rules of Thumb
This chapter has been headed as above because a number of the rules and recipes given are simply practical expedients, not too closely scientific. My endeavour has been to supply practical and useful information in language as free from technicalities as possible, so as to adapt it to the ordinary miner, mill operator and prospector, many of whom have had no scientific training.
- Company Formation and Operations
All the world over, the operation of winning from the soil and rendering marketable the many valuable ores and mine products which abound is daily becoming more and more a scientific business which cannot be too carefully entered into or too skilfully conducted. The days of the dolly and windlass, of the puddler, cradle, and tin dish, are rapidly receding; and mining, either in lode or alluvial working, is being more generally recognised as one of the exact sciences.
- Motor Power and Its Transmition
It is unnecessary to describe methods by which power for mining purposes has been obtained—that is, up to within the last five years—beyond a general statement, that when water power has been available in the immediate locality of the mine, this cheap natural source of power has been called upon to do duty. Steam has been the alternative agent of power production applied in many different ways, but labouring under as many disadvantages, chief of which are lack of water, scarcity of fuel and cost of transit of machinery.
- Calcination or Roasting of Ores
The object of calcining or roasting certain ores before treatment is to dissipate the sulphur or sulphides of arsenic, antimony, lead, etc., which are inimical to treatment, whether by ordinary mercuric amalgamation or lixiviation. The effect of the roasting is first to sublimate and drive off as fumes the sulphur and a proportion of the objectionable metals. What is left is either iron oxide, "gossan," or the oxides of the other metals.
- Gold Extraction - Secondary Processes and Lixiviation
Before any plan is adopted for treating the ore in a new mine the management should very seriously and carefully consider the whole circumstances of the case, taking into account the quantity and quality of the lode stuff to be operated on, and ascertain by analysis what are its component parts, for, as before stated, the treatment which will yield most satisfactory results with a certain class of gangue on one mine will sometimes, even when the material is apparently similar, prove a disastrous failure in another.
- Gold Extraction
We now come to a highly important part of our subject, the practical treatment of ores and matrixes for the extraction of the metals contained. The methods employed are multitudinous, but may be divided into four classes, namely, washing, amalgamating with mercury, chlorinating, cyaniding and other leaching processes, and smelting.
- Gold Prospecting - Auriferous Drifts
Having considered the origin of auriferous lodes, and the mode by which in all probability the gold was conveyed to them and deposited as a metal, it is necessary also to inquire into the derivation of the gold of our auriferous drifts, and the reasons for its occurrence therein.
- Genesiology of Gold - Auriferous Lodes
Among the theories which they discredit is that ore bodies may usually be assumed to become richer in depth. As applied to gold lodes the teaching of experience does not bear out this view.
- Lode or Reef Prospecting
In searching for payable lodes, whether of gold, silver, copper, or even tin in some forms of occurrence, the indications are often very similar. The first prospecting is usually done on the hilltops or ridges, because, owing to denudation by ice or water which have bared the bedrock, the outcrops are there more exposed, and thence the lodes are followed down through the alluvial covered plains, partly by their "strike" or "trend," and sometimes by other indicating evidences, which the practical miner has learned to know.
- Gold Prospecting - Alluvial and General
Much disappointment and loss of time and money may sometimes be prevented if prospectors will realise that *all* alluvial gold does not come from the quartz veins or reefs; and that following up an alluvial lead, no matter how rich, will not inevitably develop a payable gold lode.
- Introduction to Gold
GOLD is a name to charm by. It is desired by all nations, and is the one metal the supply of which never exceeds the demand. Some one has aptly said, "Gold is the most potent substance on the surface of our planet."
- Getting Gold, by J.C.F. Johnson, F.G.S.
Getting Gold, as written by J.C.F. Johnson, F.G.S., is the prepared from a 1898 edition. The gold-mining industry has grown considerably since 1891, and it appeared to the writer that the present would be a propitious time to bring out a similar work, but with a considerably enlarged scope. What has been aimed at is to make "Getting Gold" a compendium, in specially concrete form, of useful information respecting the processes of winning from the soil and the after-treatment of gold and gold ores, including some original practical discoveries by the author.
- How we help gold mining license and land owners
Our company helps the owners of gold mining lands and licenses, concessions, to obtain a mining startup. We provide integrated approach to start in gold mining either by joint ventures with our company or one of our clients. Mining land and license owners receive free services such as preliminary site inspection, matrix gold prospecting, geological reports, mining land valuations and gold mining startups. The final result is monthly and annnually income from gold mining profits.
- Miscellaneous Considerations
There are regions producing ores that are too refractory for the simple treatments that might be given by company plants located at the mines. There are districts that have many small gold and silver mines with ores that do not yield to simple milling processes and which must therefore be shipped to custom smelteries. Even were the ores amenable to milling of some sort, it is often the case that the mines are not of sufficient magnitude to warrant the maintenance of their own treatment plants.
- The Men of the Future in Mining
The mining of the future will probably be largely in the hands of young men. To arrive at any conclusions concerning the probabilities of success, therefore, we are obliged to recognize the dual conditions. In other words, there is to be an interdependence between men and mining. Up to this point in our discussion, we have dwelt upon the probabilities as viewed from the standpoints of natural resources and of human capability. In a certain degree, we have already covered the ground of this present chapter; and yet there are some points that must be given special consideration.
- Investment in Mining Stocks
As a feature of investment in mining stocks, there has always been a more or less open lure. Generally much larger returns are promised or are expected than in other kinds of investments. There may be absolutely no intention on the part of the seller to create this impression; but there does, somehow, exist in the memories of people accounts of wonderful fortunes that have been made in mining.
- Mine Accounting
While there has been a great deal of attention given to the matter of keeping systematic mine accounts, both in the main offices and those at the works, there still is a lack of uniformity in practice. In the bookkeeping of manufacturing and mercantile institutions, uniform practices or systems have become a feature. But there have been good reasons for the absence of similar methods in mine offices.
- Prices of Metals
There is only one product of mines that has a constant market value, viz., gold. The precious metals, gold, silver, and platinum, are sold by the Troy ounce: the base metals are all handled and dealt with on avoirdupois weights. Copper, lead, zinc, tin, and nickel are quoted in cents per pound avoirdupois. Iron and manganese are curiously sold by mines to smelting companies on the ton of ore basis.
- Mine Equipments
There is a constant tendency toward the adoption of machinery for the performance of every mining act which, formerly, was done by manual or animal labor. There are good reasons for this tendency. Good, trained labor is scarce; wages are slowly but gradually rising; ores of lower grade must be mined, and the tonnages must be correspondingly greater. The increased economy in production can be brought about by the adoption of devices that will supplant, and even excel, muscular effort.
- Mining Investments
One should be able to establish, in his mind, a distinction between the value of investments in operating mines and in prospective mines; and he should likewise be competent to fix some difference in his attitude when purchasing the stocks in these dissimilar projects. One should invest in an established mine with the same business precautions that would guide him in buying an interest in a mercantile establishment.
- Incorporation and Capitalization
Let us consider the legitimate financing of a new or a reorganized, worthy, mining proposition. It is the universal custom to own and work a mine under the laws that govern a corporation and, for this reason, the mining man of the day is familiar with the practices of incorporating.
- The Mine Promoter
With the thought that has justly been given to the place occupied (or that should be occupied) in the world's financial and economic affairs by legitimate mining, there has developed a well-founded stigma upon the operations of a class of persons who have styled themselves by what was formerly considered a worthy title, that of "promoters."
- Valuation of Mining Property
Whenever a piece of mining property is to change hands, it is the proper procedure to employ an expert engineer to investigate the ground and the improvements and so arrive at some estimate concerning its intrinsic value. Nobody is infallible and it is a trite saying that "nobody can see into a mine farther than the last drill hole." But there is a great difference in the reliabilities of reports made by trained and by untrained men.
- The Questions of Depth and Grades of Ore
The prevailing belief of a few years ago that ore bodies always improve with depth has been discredited. Not a single mining geologist will longer maintain such a notion. The evidence of many thousands of mines has refuted this older belief and it has been proven that quite the opposite view is the correct one concerning changes of value with depth. Values, instead of getting better, do actually, in the majority of cases, grow poorer as depth is gained.
- Types of Ore Bodies
Because of the laxity in type differentiation which has prevailed among miners and writers, the same geologists who have framed definitions of ore, have also defined the various types of ore bodies. The definitions, having been accepted by the leading mining geologists and engineers of the present day, it is well for us to fall into line and to agree with the authorities in such matters.
- Mine Openings
In every new mining project, there is much to be considered concerning the expediency of opening up through shafts, inclines or adits. More attention has lately been given to this subject than formerly. There are very good reasons for the selection of any one of these kinds of mine openings.
- The Opening of Mines
The word "exploitation" is used by many mining men and engineers to signify a plan of so opening up ore deposits as to render the contents removable. The same persons use the word "mining" to mean the operations involved in the actual extraction of the ore exploited. It is sometimes difficult to draw any line between the meanings of these two words for, as handled by different men, with varying shades of intention, they are sometimes synonymous.
- The Finding of Mines
Mines are discovered in many ways. One hears much about prospecting, and since this is a practice which is rapidly changing from a mystical to a scientific basis, a few considerations will here be in order.
- Mining's Place in Commerce
It is said that upon two of the world's commercial industries, every other form of activity depends. These two fundamental industries are agriculture and mining. Statisticians prove the above statement and the further fact that these two dissimilar branches of civilization's business are so closely related as to be quite inter-dependent. Strides are made by one of these industries only when advance is noted in the other. While it may not be possible to explain just why this is so, it is worth our attention to consider some brief figures that show this condition of affairs.
- The Antiquity of Mining
Mining is believed to have been one of man's earliest occupations. In historical writings, many of which date back into antiquity, there are allusions, as well as direct statements, concerning the art and tasks of obtaining valuable metals from Mother Earth. We are told that the very ancient Egyptians made common use of metals and that they possessed knowledge of certain metallurgical and metal-working processes.
- Gold Mining Terminology
Gold Mining Terminology is a system of words used to name things in gold mining discipline. It is a doctrine of terms, a treatise on terms, declaring and describing definitions of words related to gold mining.
- What is mining?
Mining is the art or practice of operating mines. Mining is carried on only when ore is being produced. Ore is a natural aggregation of one or more minerals from which useful metal may be profitably extracted. Mines are excavations in the earth from which ore, coal or gems are taken.
- What is a mine?
Before entering into a discussion of the economic features of the mining industry, it will be well to be sure that we understand, definitely, what is meant by mining. As one investigates the question, he is bound to run across varying shades of meaning for the words Mine and Mining, and so we must pause long enough to define these words according to the best usages.
