What is Start Your Own Gold Mine?

Start Your Own Gold Mine is a straightforward, integrated and turnkey business consulting program that helps the client to start a viable gold mining production. Depending of the execution of the plan it is quite possible to start gold mining production within 45 days after the company registration and presence of parties on the ground. Start Your Own Gold Mine is the gold mine business startup consulting program.

As every gold mining business is considered risky we have devised a gold mining business startup service named Start Your Own Gold Mine with purpose to minimize the mining risks and to help client with specialized gold mining and recovery training to become competent to run a gold mining operation.

The business program Start Your Own Gold Mine is the Wealth Generation Plan as authored and designed by Mr. Jean Louis and the company RCD Wealth.

The Start Your Own Gold Mine as Wealth Generation Plan is well worked out to help our clients obtain income and wealth within some reasonable time, and with the comparatively quicker return of investment in order to enjoy the financial freedom.

Even though millions of gold miners on mining lands in East Africa freely earn for their lives by gold recovery and mining activities, this program may not be for everybody.

To make the business successful our client need to to learn, get trained, need to practice gold recovery methods, need to learn how to establish the organization and how to manage staff members and resources available.

You will learn and understand how to Start Your Own Gold Mine through a mentor guided program and how to improve your gold mining production, or alternatively you may purchase gold sourced from our mining sites or engage in gold mining investment opportunities.

There are currently 2 (two) different Wealth Generation Plans to Start Your Own Gold Mine on a small scale mining level, that is the basic or sharing program and full program.

Such a gold mining startup may grow and expand into medium and large scale mining.

Introduction Video and Definitions

Definitions of words

For the full understanding of what is being offered, it is good to review the definitions of the words used.

Artisan

a skilled worker who practices some trade or handicraft, including mining.

Artisanal

relates to artisan.

Artisanal mining

is the most common rudimentary mining activity as conducted in Africa, usually by societies and people independent from each other

Aqua Regia

aqua regia, nitrohydrochloric acid — (a yellow fuming corrosive mixture of nitric and hydrochloric acid that dissolves metals (including gold))

Bedrock

a solid layer of the Earth’s crust. Bedrock underlies streams and forms an impenetrable layer that traps gold and other heavy materials.

Benches

ancient deposits of river-borne sand and gravel that may now be quite some distance from the present waterway.

Caliche

brown or white material, usually containing rocks and gravel that are cemented together tightly with calcium carbonate. Commonly encountered in dry, desert placers.

Colors

small pieces or specks of gold.

Consulting

is providing professional and expert advice. The program Start Your Own Gold Mine is consulting and mentor guided program. Condition for it to work is that client has to adhere to the guidance and consulting.

Crevicing

small-scale mining method in which tightly-packed sand and other material is removed from cracks and crevices in bedrock, usually with pry bars and/or thin scraping tools. Once removed, any gold content may be recovered by gravitational methods.

Deposit

is naturally accumulated minerals

Drift

is a horizontal (or nearly horizontal) passageway in a mine.

Event

something that happens at a given place and time

False bedrock

any hard layer that acts like bedrock in trapping gold. Clay, volcanic ash and caliche often serve as false bedrock.

Financial freedom

is the state of having enough wealth to enjoy the life and do whatever one wants to do without worries about money. All we want is to help clients, our companies and our partners to achieve financial freedom.

Generation

is coming into being, formation. To generate wealth, both client and the consultant shall work closely together so that our resources get used as intended and that wealth can be generated.

Geographic location

means identification of a point or an area on the Earth’s surface or elsewhere.

Gold

a soft yellow malleable ductile metallic element; occurs mainly as nuggets in rocks and alluvial deposits; does not react with most chemicals but is attacked by chlorine and aqua regia. Knowing the metal helps greatly in its recovery.

Gold bearing ore

means the ore containing enough gold profitable to be mined.

Gold mining

is the act of extracting gold bearing ores from the earth and it includes a full metallurgy process until the production of the valuable final product - gold.

Gold present

is the amount of gold actually existing or present in the deposit.

Gold recoverable

is the amount of gold which can be extracted from the deposit by the use of any of the well known processes, such as a pan, sluice box, concentrator, centrifugal separator, dry washer, or any other process of ore processing.

Gradient

a graded change in the magnitude of some physical quantity or dimension.

Guiding

is to conduct in a course of action or path. From our side we direct the course and determine the direction of actions. From client’s side is necessary to follow the course and directions of actions.

Highbanking

using a sluice box, possibly some distance from a waterway, aided by a stream of pumped or diverted water.

Homogeneous

means all of the same or similar kind or nature

Integrated

is formed into a whole. The whole program consists of many parts formed into a whole, so that actual production may start quickly. Client is responsible to be present and adhere to the strategic and tactical planning.

Inorganic

means lacking the properties characteristic of living organisms

Lode

refers to host rock that contains gold. Lode gold may be free milling and appear as stringers, thick sheets or fine wires; or it may be so minute that a microscope is required to see it.

Mentor

is wise and trusted guide and adviser. Our company and assigned other authorized companies and staff members represent the mentor party. The consulting and guidance is performed by the company, through the assistance of mentor Mr. Jean Louis and other mentors, together with the team, that may be assigned by the company. Consultant may provide multiple mentors. The initial mentor is Mr. Jean Louis.

Metallurgy

is the science and technology of metals. We employ metallurgists, geologists, mining engineers and use the scientific approach for gold recovery purposes.

Minerals

are solid homogeneous inorganic substances occurring in nature having a definite chemical composition

Nugget

is a solid lump of a precious metal (especially gold) as found in the earth.

Ore

An ore is a natural aggregation of minerals from which metal or metallic compound can be recovered with profit on a large scale. When the per cent of metal is too low for profitable extraction, the rock ceases to be an ore. The rock has to be tested to determine this point. Reference: Samplings Series No. 2, page 2-3

Ore dump

An ore dump is a pile or pile or heap of ore. The ore making up a dump is usually selected roughly for each particular dump, that is, high grade ore is usually dumped in one pile, medium in another, and waste discarded. Reference: Samplings Series No. 2, page 2-3

Particle

is a tiny piece of anything.

Placer

is a deposit of mineral-bearing gravel, sand or soil. It is an alluvial or glacial deposit of and/or gravel containing particles of gold or other valuable minerals.

Placer gold

Gold eroded from its host rock and now mixed with sand and/or gravel is considered placer gold.

Prospecting

exploration for useful or valuable things or substances, such as minerals. It is locating and evaluating the quantity and worth of potential valuable minerals. Prospecting includes panning, which often is used to determine the gold content of placer and/or crushed lode materials.

Prospecting Check

essential, practical and controlled gold verification action conducted by Start Your Own Gold Mine staff members and clients that drastically increases the knowledge of the gold in potential and tangible gold bearing ores.

RCD

is an acronym for Reach, Connect, Deliver formula that through very practical application leads to Wealth Generation. We provide services to our clients in the same manner like we use those services for ourselves.

Report

a written document describing the findings of some individual or group

Sample

is a collection of fragments or pieces from a deposit which contains exactly the same minerals in exactly the same proportions as they exist in the deposit.

Sampling

is the act of collecting samples.

Shaft

is a long vertical passage sunk into the earth, as for a mine or tunnel.

Small scale mining

is serious, well organized mining company or mining business that is producing well yet not as large as large companies such as Barrick, Anglo Gold Ashanti, or others.

Straightforward

is easy to understand, not complicated. The Start Your Own Gold Mine is straightforward under condition that our client follows our guidance.

Stringer

small or very thin veinlets of mineral, usually in other rock.

Tailing

is the remaining part of already processed ores.

Tangible gold bearing ore

this is ore that we are dealing with. We do not deal with ores that are not tangible, maybe written or identified in some reports or vague hearsay stories. We are looking for tangible gold bearing ores.

Turnkey

is fully functional and ready to use. The gold recovery technology is fully functional and appropriate for three types of ores such as tailings, alluvial and eluvial gold recovery and lode gold in rocks. With several hundreds of mining licenses, recruitment pool, and the knowledge, the program offers turnkey solution for small scale mining startups.

Verbal Gold Prospecting

verbal gold prospecting is fastest method known to come to the gold in rural and non-developed areas of the world. Face to face interviews with inhabitants of villages, miners, their relatives and friends is so far fastest and inexpensive method to find the sources of ores with good gold grade.

Wealth

is the state of being rich and affluent or having a plentiful supply of material goods and money. Gold mining can be a very subjective business that sometimes can be thought of, as looking for a needle in a hay stack. Sometimes even the wealthiest mining companies experience failure when exploring and mining for gold. Both client and consultant enter this agreement with realistic expectations and the knowledge that gold mining cannot offer absolute guarantee of financial gains or the attainment of limitless wealth. However both parties being of sound reason accept all the inherent associated risks of gold mining.

There exists many other definitions of mining technologies. The above definitions relate to this page and the business program named Start Your Own Gold Mine.

Thus only proven mining locations or mineral processing locations are provided to client. We make sure that tangible gold bearing ore will be available for client for quick startup with gold recovery and gold mining. We do not provide empty or plain and not developed mining lands to our clients unless clients choose it so.

  4. Mining license and/or mineral processing license. We help the client to obtain either the mining license or mineral processing license. In case of citizens' held licenses, clients are advised to sign up agreements of joint venture or partnerships to use the available local citizen’s license. Options to directly hold licenses are available.

  5. Basic gold mining and gold recovery equipment is provided to the client. The program for US $22,000 provides to client during the training stage the extensible SYOGM™ Gold Recovery Plant with the volume capacity of 80 tonnes of soft ores per day or 10 tonnes per hour. Proper organization of the work force may raise the capacity to few hundred tonnes per day. We can proudly claim that we can teach every client on how to get gold and how to properly use gold recovery methods.

  6. Training, guidance, consulting and mentorship. Client is guided and consulted through one or more assigned mentors in various aspects of doing gold mining business. Geologists may be assigned to client to train client in recognition of gold bearing veins. Mining engineers may be assigned to consult the client on gold production lines. Metallurgists may be hired and assigned to client to help him devise more efficient methods of gold recovery. Attorneys and advocates and accountants may be assigned to assist the client in legal and tax matters. Our face to face consultants will be guiding the client through each of necessary steps so that training is successfully delivered to our client.

  7. Privileged Benefit is conditional and additional gold recovery and gold mining equipment provided by our company and worth more than US $60,000. In order to help the client achieve the gold production of several initial kilograms of gold, we will provide equipment in our possession, whatever it may be, or whatever we may provide such as air compressors, jackhammers, pneumatic drills, containers for storage or accommodation, brick making machines for buildings on mining sites, jaw crushers for continuous lode and rock crushing, rock impact mills and ball mills for grinding and milling of the gold bearing ores, cranes, lifts, ore buckets, sluices and whatever other equipment may be necessary to help the client and our side, so that initial few kilograms may be produced by client.

Benefits by using our resources

By using Start Your Own Gold Mine readyavailable 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 are used in the Start Your Own Gold Mine program.

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.

Countries available to Start Your Own Gold Mine

Our group have legal establishments in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. We may potentially work in any of the East African countries such as Burundi, South Sudan but also the Democratic Republic of Congo.

While we may offer the consulting for business startup to Start Your Own Gold Mine in many other countries, the Privileged Benefit is available only in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania for the time being as of

The program is available in any country of the world, where three types of ores may be processed with gravitational gold recovery methods and where such consulting may be legally provided.

Client’s training is conducted on the ground in the country of choice. Yet, the major parts of training can also be conducted anywhere within Europe or other locations in the world, as long as additional expenses are covered.

Gold prospecting services

We can conduct gold prospecting services on mining sites throughout the world. We will gladly search for gold in harder to reach areas, drill for alluvial gold in forest or jungle, or dive deep into the river or lakes to find gold nuggets concentrated on their bedrocks.

Gold panning, dredging, dry washing, sluicing, assaying are all well known subjects, and we will gladly provide services of gold prospecting.

We can use metal detectors to detect presence of gold nuggets of certain size on large surface areas.

Gold panning is most important gold prospecting method that just every prospector and miner need to know.

Drilling is major prospecting service the may discover alluvial, eluvial and lode gold existence. We currently provide drilling services for soft soil down to 60 meters deep.

Gold mineral exploration

Gold mineral exploration is https://www.startyourowngoldmine.com/services/index.html][more extensive service] than gold prospecting.

It consists of more serious steps required to determine the existence of gold ores on a certain area of land.

It may require provision of borehole drilling, core drilling, trenching and larger excavations.

Gold mineral exploration has a purpose to determine the feasibility and methods of future mining.

We are engaging in gold exploration business under conditions that goals, purposes, plans and policies of a client are in harmony with our own gold mining business.

Gold bearing ore discovery

The purpose of gold exploration is discovery of mineral named gold in sufficient quantities so that mining operation in future may become profitable.

When we refer to discovery of gold, we do not just mean simple finding of gold particles or few nuggets.

We are searching for gold bearing ore or also known as auriferous ore.

The purpose of gold bearing ore discovery project is to find sufficient ore bodies in order to estimate the future gold mining production.

Sampling and assaying services

We will provide sampling services on mining site, proper storage, assaying and analysis of minerals.

About gold mining risks

Gold mining can be a very subjective business that sometimes can be thought of, as looking for a needle 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 financial 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.

General Postulates

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 the country they may be subject to 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 East Africa 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.

SAM 0145 profile

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 few hundreds of international businesses and helped worldwide entrepreneurs and businessmen to start their own varieties 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.

That is why and how we may offer the business startup program with such a low cost investment.

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 $200,000.

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 advises.

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 2020

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 country

Today we have business establishment and provision of the consulting program Start Your Own Gold Mine in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, and we may attend locations in Liberia or Ivory Coast in soon future.

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. There are conditions to be met for quick startup and clients need to fulfill their duties as without their presence or with the delay of the client, startup may be also delayed.

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 the country of choice in East Africa.

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 Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

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, or some other countries, 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 local country in East Africa.

That is possible due to various constellations that might be possible with the production of gold.

Together with our legal advisers we devise exclusively legal plans.

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 labor, 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:

  1. Gold mining project that you are going to continue managing without our assistance

  2. 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 or gold recovery business 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.

Available resources for client

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.

With our previously established resources, connections, Know-How, mining equipment, your wish to Start Your Own Gold Mine may come true.

Available resources

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 thousands of 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 $50,000, 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.

I believe that is why it is an unique opportunity.

Initial expenses and minimal investment required

Having place of life in East Africa, 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 local 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.

Yet the above example refers to local miners, and not local businessman. It would be impossible to even think of obtaining a license without serious investment capital amount.

We are foreigners in East Africa and we spend few thousands dollars just to prepare and arrive to the country. We have totally different schedule of expenses than local Tanzanians.

Expenses and minimal investment amounts for foreigners are higher than for local Tanzanian citizens.

Some initial expenses

Unfortunately, for us foreigners, it is not possible to have it easy like local East African citizens, Tanzanians, Kenyans, or Ugandans, 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 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 year 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 cheaper 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 two initial groups:

  1. 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;

  2. 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.

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.

Table 1. Required Levels of Investment

US $66,000 service fee

US $10,000 investor’s side

5 tonnes of hard rocks per hour, 10 tonnes soft soil per hour, plus the Privileged Benefit, full equipment supplied to client

Serious gold mining startups cost way more than the above shown minimums. And such minimums are yet considered small scale mining.

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 with excavators, compressors, generators, trucks and off-road vehicles, and 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 partially in advance and larger part upon the established gold production.

There are 2 different programs.

The full program is with US $66,000 where client has no further obligations, and where we are providing the client with a gold mining land and full production line for about 5 tonnes per hour capacity. Such program gives opportunity to faster achieve the goals.

The secondary method is with US $22,000 where client receives one part of equipment from our side, and other part is being borrowed to the client, worth about US $50,000 so that first 5 kilograms may be achieved. Client is expected to gradually invest. On the end of this program client is sharing with our company 2 kilograms of gold and has gained his first 3 kilograms.

Consulting and guidance in the first stage is complete once you have produced first five 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 while in the same time you are getting 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 continue working after the finalization of the startup program.

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.

The startup itself is such that it can help the miner or our client to engage in business with some first daily production of 5-10 grams of gold.

That level of production is thereafter expanded with more equipment and the application of EQV formula as devised by Mr. Jean Louis. With the improved equipment capacity, with raised level of processed ores, more gold production may be achieved.

So it is possible to produce several kilograms of gold per month.

Thereafter by using privileged benefits and already available resources established for the client, client is working to achieve the first 5 kilograms of gold. The daily routine may give from 20-30 grams to 100 grams of gold in that stage.

Once client have completed the program and training, the consulting contract is finished, and client may continue repeating the successful actions.

It is the process of getting trained, process of education, organization and management that is creating the sustainable gold mining production.

Estimated Gold Production

The formula devised by Mr. Jean Louis and used very much in the program Start Your Own Gold Mine is the EQV Formula representing the correlation between the factors: Equipment, Quality and Volume.

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 anything 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:

  • The Elephant Bee Hive Project in Katojo, Rubuguri, district of Kisoro, Uganda
    The Elephant Bee Hive Project was the idea to place the beehives as a natural and live fence to deter elephants not to exit the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This way, people's crops could be saved. However, the idea is not practical, as many beehives were abandoned first by their bees, and second by their maintainers, the project is not functional, and requires skilled people to work. We have made our own Elephant Defense Project and have informed people that they could plant chilli pepper around the crops to deter elephants, further, we informed rangers of the Uganda Wild Life Authority that they could bringing elephants' dung from other places of the forest to deter them to exit the forest in the night. The implementation alone requires funding and investments. We can provide only the advice.

  • Bus station in Busia, Uganda
    This is the bus station in Busia town, Uganda.
  • Quartering of the sample on canvas, with warning
    The quartering have been conducted, but this is small sample containing concentrates, and even if it wasn't, the dirt on the canvas was not quartered equally, and thus the quarters do not represent perfect proportional minerals from the whole. Much care must be taken in doing this work, as well as to clean thoroughly the parts of the canvas where the discarded metal has been in order to prevent salting.
  • Quarter of the sample, is it removed or not removed?
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. What do you observe on this picture? The quarter of the sample have been removed. Is it removed? What can you see and observe?…
  • Collection of quarter of the sample into gold pan
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. People collect one quarter of the sample into the gold pan. Please don't do this.
  • Negative education on errors in sampling
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. People are using canvas incorrectly, removing sample into gold pan, not cleaning the canvas, and walking barefoot over mercury contaminated sample.
  • Negative education on errors in quartering
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. People are trying to remove way to big sample part into the gold pan. Instead, additional canvas underneath shall be used first to remove the quarter and then to dispose of it.
  • Negative education examples of quartering
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. The barefoot walking over material, dirty canvas, not cleaning and removing all particles of the sample.
  • Quartering the sample
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure.
  • Quartering the sample
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: This picture are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. Barefoot walking over the canvas, using small scoop to try to flatten the sample, not using any piece of cloth to clean the canvas and collect or particles together, those are the incoherent facts to be observed on this picture.
  • People are using canvas to divide the sample in two parts
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pictures are shown how NOT TO do the quartering procedure. The incoherent facts that may be seen on this picture are dirt everywhere on the canvas, thus either removing the gold particles from the sample or contaminating parts of sample with it. Using hands too close on the sample material and barefoot walking over the canvas, thus either removing or contaminating the sample.
  • The method to divide smaller sample in two parts
    This pictures shows the starting position to divide the smaller sample into two parts.
  • The sample as divided in two parts
    This sample have been divided in two approximately equal parts.
  • Division of the sample in two parts
    On this picture one can see how sample have been divided on two parts.
  • Coning the sample
    After mixing the sample, it has to be coned and then flattened before quartering process.
  • Mixing the sample in plastic canvas
    While this picture cannot describe proper way of using canvas on how to mix the sample, it demonstrates the basic principle of rolling the sample in canvas.
  • Sampling Errors in Practice
    NEGATIVE EDUCATION WARNING: These pages describe how not to do the sampling, coning and quartering, as these errors are common. Much care must be taken in doing this work, as well as to clean thoroughly the parts of the platform or canvas where the discarded metal has been in order to prevent salting. People walking barefoot on the mercury contaminated soil and other negative facts may be observed on this series of pictures.
  • Removing the quarters into gold pan
    Removing the quarter of the sample into the gold pan is easy task. We rather recommend using other piece of canvas underneath, so that sample is easier removed from it, and then later placed into buckets or bags. Much care must be taken in doing this work, as well as to clean thoroughly the parts of the canvas where the discarded metal has been in order to prevent salting.
  • Flattening of the sample on canvas
    The cone made out of the sample material shall be flattened on canvas so that easier quartering may take place in the second step.
  • Sample in the middle of tabletop oilcloth, or this time tent plastic canvas
    Here one can see the sample in the middle of the tent plastic canvas. The canvas shall be about 2 meters by 2 meters, this one is little larger. For larger canvas, more care must be taken to have proper mixing and removal of parts of sample during the quartering process. This picture is negatively educationl. Do not repeat what you see on this picture.
  • Quartering - dividing the sample into four equal parts
    Quartering is standard process to divide the sample into four equal parts. It is sample reduction process. Even though it may seem simple on pictures, it is not as simple if we are quartering sample which shall be assayed for gold grade. Small details of the techniques of quartering are very important, as otherwise gold contamination occurs and sample assays higher than it should be. Tips and tricks are explained on these pages about sampling and quartering methods.
  • Mixing the smple on table oilcloth, nylon or plastic canvas
    This series of pictures will demonstrate how to mix the sample on the table oilcloth, nylon or plastic canvas. The procedure is standard, hundred yeasr old yet not as known and practiced by small scale miners in Africa.
  • How to prepare the square table oilcloth for sample mixing
    These pictures will show how to prepare the square table oilcloth or other type of plastic canvas for purposes of mixing the sample. The process is simple, find out what is the quantity of the sample, try to estimate the square size, find the table oilcloth, measure its width and if width is good enough for the sample size, cut it to the length of the width, and you have got the square. While this process may be sample in its words to some people, to some other people it is complicated. Pictures are there to give the mass to the reader so that process can be easier understood.

  • Long-range locator Forward Gauss VR-1000B-II exposed as fraudulent dowsing device in Tanzania
    Yet another fraudulent geologist have been exposed as dowser and a modern "witch" in Tanzania. A fraudulent long-range locator device was used as fake metal detectors with claims to be able to find gold on distances such as up to 1000 meters on vertical and horizontal directions. The long-range locator device manufactured in China and named Forward Gauss VR-1000B-II have been exposed as dowsing device which falls in the category of witchcraft and not a science. The electronic circuits within the device detect no gold but are exclusively used to defraud people. Owners of such devices collect money from gullible small scale and artisanal miners in Tanzania. A simple test in our garden have exposed the owner not to be a geologist but a simple clown.
  • Fraudulent dowsing device Forward Gauss VR 5000 exposed in Tanzania
    The fraudulent dowsing device Forward Gauss VR 5000 exposed in Tanzania. The fraudulent team of "geologists" claimed to be able to find hidden treasure such as burial reserves and German antiques that include and are not limited to German Duss or Deutz stove, ironbox, lantern, radio, padlocks, axe, hammer, wallclock, gramophone, sword, beacon/bayonnetes, boots, belt, wristwatch, bottle, spoon, German militaria antiques which contain natural red mercury, More to these are high grade uranium, gemstones, diamond, gold and treasure boxes full of pure Silver wares and a lot more.
  • Dowsing exposed in gold mining activities
    Dowsing or rhabdomancy is searching for underground water or minerals by using a dowsing rod. We are exposing any and all dowsing methods that are too often used in East Africa, in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya by fraudulent geologist and operators who claim to be able to find valuable minerals by using dowsing and long-range locators which they call "detectors" but are nothing else but fraudulent devices. Too many small scale miners and artisanal miners and their families suffered for wrongdoings of dowsers or "geologist" who claimed to have dowsing abilities. Locating gold on distances of even several kilometers have been reported and exposed as false and fraudulent.
  • Pouring the gold into the mold
    You may see here how gold is quickly poured into the hot mold. After pouring the gold into the mold, shake it a little, give it few kicks, so that any remaining impurities, dirt or borax or remaining particles of gold may come out. Keep those impurities for later refining.
  • Quickly adding gold scrap into the melting oven
    If you wish to add some gold into the melting oven, do not delay as not to decrease the temperature. Quickly open the melting oven with one hand, and by using tweezers or small scoop, add the scrap gold into the oven.
  • Human fat burning while melting the scrap gold
    What you may see on this video is human fat burning while melting the gold scrap. Necklaces and bracelets often collect parts of human fat and during the melting stage they quickly burn out.
  • Pouring the gold into the mold
    Once gold has been melted in the melting oven, you are pouring the gold into the mold. There is no waiting time. The process must be done without delays. The mold must be heated and is usually held on the top of the oven to keep its temperature always hot. Asbestos gloves must be used, as otherwise you cannot handle the hot mold. You take the tweezers in the hand, quickly open the melting oven, then fix the crucible with tweezers and poour the gold into the mold.
  • Quick gold mixing with the graphite stab
    During the melting process one need to quickly open the melting oven, then use the special graphite stab to mix the gold, and then quickly close the melting oven.
  • During melting mold is held on the hot gold melting oven
    During the melting process the mold must be heated. As if the mold is not heated and very hot, pouring gold into cold mold would result with the burst of the melted gold. Basic safety gear are protective glasses, asbestos gloves and protective apron. When opening the oven to see or verify if gold have been melted, one should be fast. Open the oven, look inside, shake the gold, and close the oven as fast as possible. Don't let the temperature go down during your observation.
  • The front panel of the melting oven for 1 kg of gold
    This is the front panel of the small melting oven for gold. The maximum quantity for this melting oven is 1 kg of gold. This melting oven is ideal for scrap gold or gold nuggets. When recovering the gold from tailing heaps on mining sites in Tanzania, Uganda or Kenya, such gold often contains mercury. In that case it is advisable to first separate mercury by using retorts. After separation of mercury such melting oven as this one may be used to melt the final gold. Flux such as borax shall be used…
  • Gold melting methods and handlings
    On these pages you may find some of gold melting methods and handlings. One would first need to consider all the safety precautions while melting gold. In the next step one need to know how to melt the gold properly. Not all types of gold are to be melted with the same method. Special precaution and care shall be given when handling any gold that would contain mercury. Even though our company do not buy or trade with gold that contains mercury, we often recover mercury from tailings, and in the case usage of retorts is necessary to prevent any contamination or disposal of mercury.
  • Should I engage into gold cyanidation business?
    This question is often answered by East African miners by actually engaging into gold cyanidation business. Some of them are winning, majority of them are loosing fortunes, and even if making it profitable, they are still loosing a lot of gold while endangering environment, animals, fish and crops around them. In the program Start Your Own Gold Mine we are not using any cyanidation methods. Out of this conversation an intelligent mind may find clues and indications that may be useful before deciding to engage into any type of gold cyanidation and leaching methods.

  • The excavated open pit
    This is excavated open pit that was explored by artisanal miners some years before. Small number of miners are still working in this area and recovering gold every day. Majority of them abandoned the sites and went to new gold rush locations.
  • Mr. Louis in front of the open pit
    The open pit behind me is possible gold mining opportunity that we may explore in soonest future.
  • Previous mining locations
    On these locations many artisanal miners have previously recovered gold and lived from it. Today many are still there even though the majority of miners abandoned the place and went somewhere else. So is the gold rush in Uganda.
  • Dirty feet
    Those are my dirty feet and shoes in Uganda.
  • Travel to prospecting location in Uganda
    This is picture of our travel today on 15th January 2018 to the new prospecting and prospective location. On such new location we have gold mining opportunity to obtain new ores and process it. The location was occupied by artisanal miners before some years.
  • Preparation of rudimentary sluice for ore processing in Uganda
    This is rudimentary sluice that is being prepared by our neighboring miners. In my opinion this type of the sluice is way to wide, not evenly balanced, with too steep slopes, and too high to load it with the ores. We cannot recommend small scaler miners and artisanal miners to make this type of sluices. That is inefficient as it requires much energy, material will not be evenly spread and gold would be lost.
  • Mr. Okedi collecting concentrates from looped carpets
    Looped carpets or miners' moss or 3M Nomad type of a carpets are used to efficiently recover gold larger than 50 mesh, gold nuggets, flakes and larger gold. On the end of the day and multiple times of day, concentrates are collected from such carpets.
  • Mr. Louis doing practical field assay of gold
    Mr. Louis is doing here practical field assay of gold content in some soil. Similar method may be used to concentrate gold from the operation and to determine how much was recovered.
  • Magnified flat gold nugget in the gold pan
    This is magnified and flat gold nugget in the pan. It is probably flat due to the previous ball mill processing, it was smashed and became flat.
  • Small nuggets recovered
    Small flat nuggets are also found in concentrates and recovered by using super-concentration and simple gold panning methods.
  • Mercury gold and mercury ball in the gold pan
    This is how it looks like when many gold particles are connected or amalgamated together with mercury. Miners used mercury in recovery of gold, and lost it in heaps of tailings. We are recovering both the mercury and the gold from such tailings, without using new mercury or introducing new mercury in the process.
  • The mercury gold once again
    This is mercury gold once again shown in the gold pan after fine gold concentration process. We do not use mercury, we recover it as side effect.
  • Mercury recovered from concentrates
    Instead of nice yellow gold, our gold looks as silver like, as it is mixed with mercury. Heaps of tailings are polluted with mercury and our recovery is such that we cannot see it yellow any more unless it is either microscopic, as such could not be connected to mercury or too large as nugget, as such also did not connect to mercury.
  • The fine gold recovery system
    This is fine gold recovery system that helps us concentrate all the gold smaller than 50 mesh.
  • Gold is recovered in form of mercury
    Heaps of tailings are polluted by mercury from previous mining operation. We are recovering mercury as well with the gold, and later dispose safely with the pollutant. Mercury is not used in our operation. We recover mercury from nature.

    This is fine gold recovery systems, we are using the genious methods invented by smart microscopist from Oregon for purposes of mercury free gold recovery.
  • Concentrate is being processed
    Mr. Louis is processing the remaining concentrates and process is fast. It is possible to process multiple buckets of concentrates after work, and to get to the fine gold within 15 minutes.
  • The gold recovery system
    This is view from my working place on the gold recovery system for all gold smaller than 50 mesh, down to 5 microns. This fine gold can be recovered, totally without using mercury and by using simplest set theory in mathematics applied practically. Many people make a question how a set theory may be applied practically, and that is exactly how our gold recovery system works, by using the set theory and by removing those parts of material not containing or containing gold.
  • Buckets of concentrate are today processed for gold
    The buckets of concentrate are today processed for gold. In general, our bulk of concentrate is not large. These many buckets contain various particle sizes and types of gold, and help in sorting out what we were doing. We can then determine which heap of tailing was better productive.
  • Children panning for gold on mining site
    These children are panning for gold on mining site in a dangerous and polluted environment. Each heap of tailings is polluted with mercury. Children are in constant contact with mercury while playing and working on the mining site. We do not endorse such activities. This is report from neighboring sites where we do not have control.
  • Heaps of tailings being milled again and processed
    These heaps of tailings are being milled again with the rudimentary locally made hammer crusher that runs in wet mode. The material is then processed on small looped carpet sluices. The hammer crusher is spending about 25,000 Ugs. per day on hammers alone, which is about US $6.95.

  • Concentrate collection
    On the end of the day, concentrate is collected and retained for further concentration and final gold recovery.
  • Miners working on the sluice
    Miners are handling the first tailings heaps on this mining site.
  • Women and people panning for gold nearby our tailings heaps
    These women and men are panning for gold just nearby our tailings heaps. They may obtain per day of panning from 0.1 to 0.3 grams of gold, or sometimes more. It helps them live the life.
  • Mining and mineral processing site
    This is our mining and mineral processing site where we have agreement to process all the tailings heaps.
  • Miners feeding the sluice
    Sluice is fed by miners by the rate of 132 shovels per hour where average shovel is about 8 kilograms, amounting to little bit more than one tonne per hour. In the first stage, slow water pressure and low slope is applied to review how much of gold is retained and what gold is eventually being lost. Once capability have been attained, the slope is increasing up to the tolerated degree, and water pressure is increased. Up to 6-8 tonnes per hour may then be handled in the second stage.
  • Concentrate on the vortex matting
    This is vortex matting, enlarged. Concentrate is under the surface of these particles, including several small gold nuggets.
  • Mr. Louis by the sluice
    This is Mr. Louis, preparing small details for the fine gold recovery sluice. Gold particles are so small that cannot be seen by naked eyes.
  • Water pump is debugged
    The water pump could not pull the water on 2-3 meters. We found out that pressure was disturbed too weak connection of the suction hose. Within few minutes it was repaired and water pump engaged.

  • The old abandoned rudimentary ball mill drum
    This is old and abandoned rudimentary ball mill drum on the mining site. One may see how it was repaired multiple times. We suspect gold inside, left for those who know where to search for it.
  • Black sand after classification
    Black sand has been classified and is now in the bucket.
  • Classification of black sand
    The classifiers are mounted onto buckets and black sand is separated in various particle size groups. Same procedure may be used in mercury free gold recovery.
  • Black sand preparation and separation
    On this picture one may see the simple tools used to prepare the black sand, to separate it, or better say classify it into various sizes. This preparation was necessary in the area which lacks the black sand and where much of eluvial gold is found. Contrary to what majority of prospectors are saying that black sand is disturbing them in gold separation and recovery, we are using it directly to capture the fine gold particles.
  • Separation of black sand
    Black sand, what it is? One may see on this picture that it appears actually black. Not always so. Sometimes it is redish or dusty orange or simple dusty. Most of times it appears darker than other types of sand. It is magnetic and one may see magnet on picture lifting and separating black sand from the rest. Its specific gravity is higher than usual silica sand or quartz sand for 3-4 times. It consists of magnetite and hematite and other heavier minerals. Not all of them have same magnetic attraction.

    This is the enlargement of the mercury coated or amalgamated gold in the gold pan.
  • Mercury gold and small gold particles recovered
    Mercury gold is seen in the gold pan and represents the result from one portion of the concentrates that were collected on the sluice. Mercury collects small particles of gold together, and we recovery mercury and dispose of it. We do not use mercury in recovery of the gold. We recover both gold and mercury accidentally due to previous mercury pollution.
  • Sluice handling
    People are handling the sluice for fine gold recovery. We are using 4 important pieces of technology necessary to capture small gold. The test stage allows a lot of mistakes to happen, so that next sluice may be built with all the small improvements necessary for better gold recovery.
  • Feeding the sluice
    The sluice is fed during the first half an hour of testing. Clay material was much harder to handle, while all the sand was handled pretty well, mercury and gold particles could be recovered, together with the oxide coated gold particles.
  • Laminar water flow
    Laminar water flow on the sluice is important factor in gold recovery. Turbulences and bubbles or air spaces under the water flow shall by all means be avoided.
  • Gold particles are separated on the sluice
    Sluice and the slick plates on the first part of the sluice are being separated from each other and gold particles are running to be captured. Water flow is carefully observed, the level of the sluice, bubbles and turbulences.
  • So many hoses, pipe, which one is ours?
    There are so many hoses and pipes on the ground, many of them are neglected. Miners do their best. Due to expenses, light blue hoses are used to bring water. But they are also breaking all the time and are more liability than an asset. We are using the HDPE pipe of two inch as it is durable and gives least resistant to water in comparison to those other soft hoses.
  • The HDPE pipe is being moved for easier water supply
    The HDPE pipe is moved by our people for easier water supply. That way we did not need to cut the expensive suction hose which we use to bring water from the HDPE pipe. HDPE means high density polyethylene. Polyethylene is a lightweight thermoplastic used in insulation, plumbing and similar applications.
  • The sluice ready for the tailings heap test
    The sluice is setup on the mining site on 1st January 2018 and is ready for the tailings test. Larger gold particles were found and much of the smaller particles of black, brown and dark red gold. Maybe you wonder what is black, brown and dark red gold? Those gold particles are coated with other minerals and do not appear as yellow and shiny as larger gold particles.
  • Injury on the mining site
    Fingers were cut on the sluice on the attempt to remove some small rocks. But small rocks were made of quartz. Sharp quartz.
  • The empty mining site on 26th December 2017
    This is the empty mining and mineral processing site on 27th December 2017 in Uganda. People went for Christmas, we remained with few people for work. There was plenty of time to field assay the tailings heap that was first in the row out of many.
  • Gold flake in the gold pan
    Small gold flake was found in the gold pan during the gold panning on the materials from tailings.
  • Prospecting in the tailings after the sluice
    Local miners remain with tailings after the sluice. Here I am verifying their tailings and losses. Such material was tested by using Garrett Super Sluice to quickly determine what is being lost. Several flakes of gold of 1 millimeter have been found, and one nugget of 2 millimeter. Multiple small particles of gold including mercury have been found as well. It proved again the losses of artisanal miners and gave us assurance of profitability of the tailings.
  • Conducting the field assay on the tailing heap
    It was 26th December 2017. I was conducting the more proper field assay on the tailings heap to determine the number of gold particles and to get a feeling of what it is inside. When I say "more proper" it means that there may be various factors influencing the analysis of the tailings heap. The result was fantastic in the sense that I could recover all the smallest particles of gold, even hardly visible under the magnifier, including the mercury particles. Thus we may determine on the spot and within…
  • The black sand separation system
    This is our black sand separation system. When concentrate contains some gold and we do not want to recover the small gold, but need some black sand, we are using the classic magnetic separation from one bowl to other bowl. The concentrate is first dried on the stove, then black sand is removed for our purposes. The black sand removal for purposes of gold recovery is efficient with this method only if you have very small amount of concentrate. With bucket large concentrates this method is very slow…

  • Chamber of Commerce in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
    During first government visits in Tanzania, back in 2012, we visited also the Chamber of Commerce. The building was pretty hidden and virtually deserted. No customers or businessmen observed at premises. We have to pass the gun control and sign up in the book of visitors. We had idea to purchase gold in Tanzania by using a bank guarantee. This deal have been shown later as fake and fraudulent. Chamber of Commerce had no means to help us with gold purchases and in general those few women working there…
  • Way too expensive hotel in Dar es Salaam
    Before we arrived to Dar es Salaam, first time, back in 2012, we were reading in the tourist guide not to trust the taxi drivers to bring us to hotels. And then I did exact same mistake. I told him to bring us to inexpensive hotel, yet he brought us to the expensive one. Taxi drivers in Dar es Salaam are sharing their commissions with hotels. If you wish to sleap cheaply, the price of 10 dollars is enough for a good hotel. Remember that. If you wish to sleep even cheaper it is possible for US $4.48…
  • Goldivanti LP purchasing manager in Uganda in front of the storage room
    This is our Ugandan purchasing manager, she purchases all connectors, HDPE pipes, hoses, water pumps, pump connectors, and just whatever else is necessary. She managed to send a person to Tanzania and export and import the most necessary equipment.
  • One part of our equipment in the storage room
    This is one part of our equipment in the storage room. Few suction hoses, a water pump, basins, gold pans, vortex matting and the miners' moss, fine gold sluices, buckets for concentrates and various basic tools.
  • Mr. Louis resting after gold recovery
    The gold recovery method took several minutes to complete and to run the concentrates to recover some fine gold particles. Mr. Louis is resting in standing position, after longer sitting session.
  • The fine gold recovery system as conducted by Mr. Louis
    The fine gold system is conducted by Mr. Louis in the shade of the storage and accommodation building. Few buckets, gold pans, classifiers, and super-concentration helps in recovery of the finest gold particles. Both the beach sand and tailing heaps have been proven to contain fine gold and that is the target of the operation on this mining site. The recovery of fine gold in multiple tailing heaps.
  • Fine gold recovered after test of the tailing
    The fine gold have been recovered after the test of the tailing heaps and beach sand. The beach sand is containing fine gold and mercury together from previous mining operations. People are bringing sand and soil all the time to wash it on the river. Beach contains a lot of fine gold and few nuggets. The tailing heaps contain fine gold and small nuggets as well. This fine gold as shown on the picture have been recovered without any mercury, by using simplest tools for gold prospecting.
  • Drink mercury, drink
    Not that I wanted this. But it is how it is. Chicken and goats are continously on the mining site and drinking whatever water they find around. This gold pan had black sand particles with gold and mercury smaller than 200 mesh. It was sieves with the 200 mesh sieve. Such fine gold smaller than 200 mesh, including even smaller mercury particles are floating in the water. These chicks are drinking both the fine gold particles floating in the water and mercury particles as well. Mercury is a pollutant…
  • The fine gold recovery system
    This is our fine gold recovery system. A set of buckets and basins, classifiers, sluices, gold pans. Very simple. We can recover finest gold particles without using mercury. Process is fast and simple and we use the principle and the rule that key to recovery of gold is concentration. So we do that. We concentrate it. First we are concentrating the gold on the fine gold sluice. Then we obtain the concentrates we concentrate the concentrates on a smaller sluice and get very much of the gold in very…
  • The tailing heap
    This is the tailing heap being processed by the fellow miner on the location. The expected outcome is about 50 grams, up to 100 grams, with the initial expense of just 10 grams and later running expenses.
  • The raised operation on the heap
    The operation of tailing processing is raised so that hammer crusher is placed on the top of the heap and sluices down. The second sluice have too much of the slope and also very turbulent water flow that simply looses a lot of gold. 1-2 grams of gold lost per day makes a lot of money on the end of the month.
  • Find out where is the assaying sluice...
    On this picture one may observe the flow of the processed tailing, and there is one small assaying sluice capturing the fine gold particles. Try to find out where it is. Do you see it?…
  • The tailing heap after re-processing
    These tailing heaps are ending on the location just nearby the river thus polluting the area with the mercury particles. River is fully polluted, cows are drinking the same water and mercury is slowly transported to human bodies.
  • Miners' moss and the turbulent water flow
    Miners are using this type of a setup with two sluices after the hammer crusher. That is for the reason that the crusher cannot easily be stopped and started again, so they close one of the outputs to clean the carpet on one side while the other one is still running. Miners' moss is incorrectly set, the water flow is turbulent, and expanded metal is missing to push the gold particles quickly down into the carpets. A simple test have revealed that a lot of gold is being lost, just as much as one would…
  • The "Wett Mill" or locally made hammer crusher and processing of tailing
    This is "wet mill" or locally made hammer crusher that breaks each in a while. The maintenance expenses may be alone 3,500,000 Ugs. (Ugandan shillings) per month. The hammers are constantly replaced and the machine once running cannot be easily turned off. It mills rocks just for a certain percentage, large amount of pebbles and rocks come out as not well done.
  • The method of collecting the black sand
    We are collecting the black sand. This is one effective method. On this place we lack black sand as we are using it to collect fine gold particles. On the place where other people generate concentrates we are using their concentrates to find black sand usable in our application of mercury free gold recovery.
  • The heavy chains in hardware store in Busia
    The heavy chains in hardware store in Busia may be used in the chain impact mill that may influence the gold recovery.
  • One way to connect the suction hose and plastic pipe
    This is one way to connect the softer suction hose of 2 inch and the plastic pipe which is exactly the same size as the suction hose. The suction cannot be put directly onto this plastic pipe as how we have done that in Tanzania. The pipe is simple of different type over here. We have cut two pieces of the plastic pipe and then cut it on one side of the pipe, along the side. One piece have been bent and made smaller, expandable due to its elasticity and placed it inside the suction hose and the plastic…
  • Connecting hoses and pipes with rubber strings
    The rubbers are made out of the bicycle inner tyre and sold for 1,000 Ugandan shillings which is about US $0.27.
  • Miners shoveling sand into the sluice
    Miners are shoveling the sand into the sluice for fine gold recovery.
  • Spray bars are washing quickly the soil
    Soil is washed on these spray bars and it is giving quite good output of about 4-5 tonnes per hour. Fine gold can be captured with this water flow. Sluices are wide enough and water flow is not disturbing the recovery.
  • The work on the sluice
    There was some work on the sluice primarily for the purpose to collect a lot of black sand for later work, yet fine gold particles and fine mercury particles were there as well. Mercury will be collected for proper disposal and is not used in gold recovery.
  • One shovel is finished within seconds, about 40-50 kilograms is washed in one minute
    Just about 40-50 kilogram is washed within a minute, one person is enough to feed this sluice. That alone makes 4-5 tonnes per hour. Sluice may collect fine gold particles, mercury for disposal purposes, and larger nuggets.
  • Using candle, plyers and nail to make the simplest spray bars
    Simplest spray bars are easily constructed on the spot by using the candle, matchboxes, pliers and the nail. Nail is heated and used to pierce the plastic pipes. We are using enough holes for about 60% of the water to come out, which makes nice shower. I guess we shall put few more holes for some 70% - 75% of the water supply.
  • The turbulence on the sluice
    Water turbulences on the sluice are not wished and wanted. Such turbulences shall be lessened by adjustments of the spray bars. Fine gold does not like being pushed with sudden bursts of water.
  • The vortex matting is being washed to dissolve any water tension
    Various particles on the vortex matting may create the tension so that water cannot enter the small wells or dimples. That includes the black sand and fine gold particles, they may run over the matting without being captured. Washing it with the environmentally friendly dish soap breaks the tensions and helps the fine gold to settle nicely.
  • Miner working with hydro-nozzle in Uganda
    The hydro-nozzle is used here to suck the sand into the pipe and then straight into the sluice. Miner is getting used to it.
  • Miners working with hydro-nozzle
    The hydro-nozzle is used here to wash the sand on the river beach for the test of the sluice and water supply.
  • The hydro-nozzle setup
    This was the simple and improvized hydro-nozzle setup on the sand beach of the river Okame. The hydro-nozzle was first time utilized in this location. People were curious to see that new mzungu technology.
  • The pump is working surprisingly well
    The Chinese WD or WX-20 pump, whatever, is re-branded pump and sold by many various different companies. It is working surprisingly well. And is giving more water than enough for our purposes.
  • The setup of the pump for the dredge test on river Okame in Uganda
    The pump was set up as on this picture for the dredge test on the river okame. The hydro-nozzle was tested and is able to pick up a lot of sand. It requires a strong pump of 2 inch and on almost the full speed.
  • The hydro-nozzle in action in Uganda
    The hydro-nozzle is being tested on the sand beach in Uganda. Fine gold and fine mercury was found in the beach. Too many people were there over few last years washing both gold and mercury particles. River is thus polluted.

    The bottom part of the sluice is being prepared for testing stage.
  • The polluted feces of the skinned goat
    The polluted feces of the skinned goat contains a lot of plastic. Goats were eating whatever they found around. It was not a witchcraft. It was polluted environment.
  • Skinned goat, and polluted with plastic
    The goat is skinned for feast, yet polluted with plastic. A person asked me to come there to ask me something, and I came. I said by joke it is witchcraft. But the guy really was thinking it is. What happened is that they found some plastic in the goat. Due to the environment polluted with plastic, the goat had stomach full of it.

    The HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipe is almost at the river place.
  • 100 meter may not be as easy as one thinks
    The 100 meter distance to the river may not be as easy to handle as one thinks. The mud is just everywhere and legs get stuck into it. Pipe itself as made out of the HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is heavy and requires handling.
  • Moving the HDPE pipe to the river
    The HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipe is brought to the river for testing purposes. We wish to test the pump for its capability to bring us enough water to the sluice which is 100 meter distant.

  • The open pit after the work of the excavator
    This open pit was run and dug by excavator in last three days and people are trying to reach the gold bearing rocks. They actually reached it, only lack the knowledge of prospecting to continually verify the material and lack the equipment to process it. There is often more work than necessary which increases the expenses. Sometimes just 10 bags of materials are discarded and 22 grams of gold found. But the process of transport of the material is stopped, and delayed by long time of such verification.
  • Wooden goats, the HDPE pipe and timber on the site
    The wooden goats, the HDPE pipe and timber is ready on the site to be used for processing of the tailing.
  • Wooden goats for various applications
    Wooden goats may be used for various applications, such as improvized desks, even beds, work benches, and the sluice setup for recovery of the gold.
  • Simple petrol run pump for about 600 liters per minute
    This is simple 2 inch petrol pump for about 600 liters per minute, which is about 36 m³ of water per hour. Yet, we do not need that much water and intend to run the pump throttled down so that 6 tonnes of material can be processed per hour. Once that has been achieved, further adjustments can be made to increase the speed of processing.
  • Heaps of tailing in the background
    The tailing may be seen in background, there are many heaps of tailing containing the fine gold and some coarse gold. The lost fine gold may be still recovered. We are researching if such operation will be profitable for us.

    The timber is cut directly in the forest and sold to us, then brought to the mining site for purposes of assembly of the sluice boxes, benches, tables and similar.
  • Open pit mining in Uganda
    The open pit mining is a popular way in Busia as in 2017 and one, two years earlier. Yet, the excavations often lacks proper planning and work stagnate easily even when a lot of gold has been found.
  • The vortex matting on the sluice
    The vortex matting is on the sluice. One piece on the left side looks like incorrectly cut, we could say so. Yet the sides will be covered and pushed down by pieces of wood, and that is not essential.
  • The sluice work in gold recovery
    The sluice work in gold recovery may be one of most important stages. Nobody wish to loose gold. If there is production every day, few grams of lost gold may not mean nothing. Yet if the gold is lost over and over again for many days, weeks and months, the loss gold is of considerable value and care must be taken to retain it.
  • Cutting and preparing the vortex matting for the sluice
    We are cutting and preparing the vortex matting for the sluice. With some lack of proper tools and within this environment we did it pretty well. Cutting is not as easy.

    This funny looking rooster we found in Tororo, while purchasing the HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipe connectors and other small stuff necessary for business.
  • Tororo rock in Tororo city, Uganda
    This is well known Tororo rock in the Tororo city in southeastern Uganda. It emerges there out of nothing, and no other hills are visible in the area.
  • Fine gold recovery methods and results
    Fine gold recovery methods and results are discussed in this category. That is an important money bringing subject in gold mining. Fine gold is so much lost in mining operations, and is everywhere in existence, yet cannot be captured by well known or popular methods. There are only few inexpensive methods that exist in the world that can give good results in recovery of fine gold. Classification of particle sizes before the final recovery is one of the key principles that each gold prospector shall know and use. Gold panning is the other one. Fine gold can be easily panned out when all procedures are respected.
  • Processing the one pan of tailing within 5 minutes
    One pan of tailing soil was processed within 5 minutes in order to find the fine gold particles. Once fully understood, the process may be repeated over and over again with accuracy and certainty. It requires that a gold prospector or miner fully process the material and get a feeling of how much gold is inside there. And then by comparing those tests one may get a feeling of the ratio. In the same time I am mentioning accuracy and certainty, and then there is the contradiction that one need to get…
  • You should be using always the same quantity of material when testing for gold
    This is one Garrett Prospecting Gold Pan full and leveled with classified soil from a tailing heap. The soil was first classified for particles larger than 8 mesh, to find out what percentage of larger gravel is in the heaps. Then it was classified for particles smaller than 20 mesh, as I did not want to test for gold nuggest larger than 20 mesh. I know they do exist in these heaps from other tests. And I am fine with it. There is no point in searching for few nuggets in large volume of material…
  • Tiny gold nugget on left side and mercury coated gold on the right side of the gold pan
    Here one may see the tiny nugget. I have recovered it by using sieves or classifiers, the green classifying pans for prospecting minerals. They can be used to find gemstones and gold nuggets. The soil that was in the area of gold panning was simply classified. When I found the gold nugget visually, I have simply transferred it into the pile of 20 mesh to 30 mesh sized gravel. Later I tried to pan it, I did not find this nugget, and somehow I was sorry for that, but I kept the quantity. Then again…
  • The spray of water on the left side designates the water losses in pumping
    This spray of water is the loss and many such holes in the hoses influence the final water volume on the sluice. It also increases the fuel consumption.
  • Water loss in pumping
    The water is lost in pumping if hoses are not tight. Pressure is lost and less water arrives to destination, the sluice for washing the gold ores.
  • Gold nugget
    This gold nugget was recovered by panning.
  • Gold nugget on my hand
    This is yet another smaller gold nugget on my hand.

    This gold was collected with one of our sluice that helped in fine gold recovery.
  • 11.42 grams of gold before the end of the shift
    11.42 grams of gold were recovered this day before the end of the shift. This gold contains dangerous mercury, which we do not endorse or use. It was recovered with some of our help, but miners used their own methods. Mercury is dangerous chemical and not advisable for anything. It shall be disposed as waste.
  • 6.44 grams of gold recovered on the sluice
    The black nylon part of the sluice with a wooden stopper has helped to recover these 6.44 grams of gold. It means, no other technology was used, just a stopper to stop the majority of gold to go over to the sluice.

  • Miners' Moss or spaghetti carpet
    This type of miners's moss or spaghetti carpets are used to capture fine gold. That is certainly not the best solution, yet it is used to created kilograms of gold in Uganda.
  • The rudimentary sluice is being upgraded
    This rudimentary sluice is being upgraded with piece of technology that may capture finest gold particles. Yet only with the proper setup the majority of gold may be recovered. The water pressure cannot be too much, material cannot be washed to fast. There are many other factors influencing the gold recovery rate.
  • Gold nugget directly recovered on the sluice
    This gold nugget was directly recovered on the sluice on the nylon, while washing the concentrated material. It represents the lack of riffles or proper sluice to recover such nuggets.

  • The piece of black nylon is showing fine gold
    This piece of black nylon have been mounted on the gold washing sluice and is being washed with pretty clean water from the nearest river Okame in Uganda. On such nice piece of black nylon, one may see how finest gold particles are being concentrated.
  • Gold particles with mercury
    The tailing as being produced by artisanal miners in Uganda contains a lot of mercury inside and thus gold is recovered that contain a lot of mercury. It is not yellow but of silver color. We do not endorse usage of mercury in mining operations. However, we do recover gold that may contain mercury or traces of mercury. Such mercury, when recovered by our company, is disposed and exported as waste to secure locations.
  • Mr. Louis showing the gold nuggets to the miner
    Mr. Louis is showing the gold nuggets to the miner, after demonstrating him the classification process. Gold nuggets may be easily recovered once classification of concentrate have been finished.
  • Gold nugget in the gold pan
    The gold nugget in the gold pan was panned by myself after the classification of particles into 3 separate sizes, larger than 20 mesh, particles between 20 and 30 mesh, and particles smaller than 30 mesh. After such classification of particle sizes, it was a matter of few minutes to pan out the larger gold nuggets.
  • Basins are never enough
    One of the out-points or better say not logical facts that we found on this mining site is the lack of basins and containers for the concentrates and handling of concentrates. Buckets were completely missing. Basins were not in best shapes. So every single action is coping or exchanging with other basins containing always some gold inside. It creates new risks in handling gold and delays the operation.
  • Gold nugget recovered by simple panning
    After washing the concentrates as created by neighbor, all the details of such concentrates have been analyzed. The procedure have been tested and devised which would be the best to collect simply all of the gold. The concentrate was such that it could contain even 3 grams big gold nuggets, which we did not find today. It contains a lot of fine gold due to the accumulation of black sands found in spaghetti carpets or miners' moss, and it contains a lot of smaller nuggets of the size of about 30-60…
  • Mercury gold recovery is dangerous and poisonous business
    Mercury is a dangerous substance which we do not recommend to anybody in mining operations. There are many good mercury free gold recovery methods. Why pay for mercury when gold can be recovered without mercury? No American or European gold prospector is using mercury in their operations. So just stop using it, stop getting sick and stop polluting your environment.
  • Miners feeding the hammer crusher in background
    Those two miners in background are feeding the hammer crusher while I am handling the super concentrate.
  • Helping the neighbor
    The super-concentration and handling of concentrates for the neighbor helped me understand much about the operation, the soil, the tailing and gold inside. It was not all how I have expected it. One need to see it practically, to understand what is required to handle such soil. There are factors that are important to note: - the type of machinery that people are using to create such tailings, - the particle sizes that such machinery is producing, - the particles sizes of gold that such machinery…
  • Little wet...
    It was raining, so we are wet for a while.

  • Loading 150 meter of 2 inch HDPE pipe onto the pick-up truck
    The 2 inch HDPE or High Density Polyethylene pipe of 150 meter is loaded onto the truck for water supply on the mining site. Even though we do not know quite at this moment if it will give us correct water pressure, we simply need to try it out.
  • Moving the stuff to the mining site
    The basic stuff and prospecting tools including the large production sluice are moved to the mining site.
  • When nothing works, push it
    Guys are pushing to pick-up vehicle to start it.
  • Some mining equipment is loaded onto the pick-up truck
    We are loading some of the mining equipment on the pick-up truck and moving near the mining site.
  • Moving from Busia to Ndaiga, Uganda
    We are moving from this nice house in Busia to Ndaiga for work on the mining site.
  • Water pump from Swiss company Ennos
    This water pump works on solar power directly. It has a built-in solar controler. It is produced by Swiss company, I just guess "Ennos". The price in Uganda is way too much, it is good for richer people or companies. What is good is that it can push water on long distance, even 2 kilometers. The watter supply by this pump is not sufficient for direct mining purposes. It may be used for collection of water in water tanks for later work.
  • Simple improvized wooden table
    Improvized wooden desks or tables are easily made and can be used on mining site. For some reason local carpenters are harder to understand what means "improvized", and they always tend to make "beautiful" desks.
  • Mr. Louis just before food poisoning event

Once in front of thousands of people he mentioned how such problems of over population are solved by using vaccinations. Does that mean vaccination are endangering people's health? One…
  • Baboons along the road in Busitema forest in Uganda
    These baboons are walking along the road in Busitema forest in Uganda often fed by travelers with some food. We do not advise feeding baboons on the road as that creates their habits and changes their life style. Food is there enough.
  • Baboons in the Busitema forest in Uganda
    Here again, few baboons are on the road in Busitema forest in Uganda, near Busia.
  • Work on the open pit
    Miners are working on the open pit in Uganda. Rich gold ore have been identified and need to be reached once again. Excavating activities require better planning. This mining site was not managed by our company at the time of creation of this picture.
  • Neglected water hoses
    These water hoses are pretty neglected and harder to maintain. We will use the HDPE or High Density Polyethylene pipes of two inches which are more robust, and will have less resistance in transferring the water from one place to other. Polyethylene is a lightweight thermoplastic used especially in packaging and insulation, while thermoplastic is a material that softens when heated and hardens again when cooled.
  • Neglected water hoses
    These water hoses are seriously neglected and in bad shape. Trucks are moving over the hoses, and people are trying to repair it all over again and again. We do not want to implement these blue soft hoses in our operation of processing of the gold bearing tailing heaps. Rather we will use the HDPE or High Density Polyethylene pipes of two inches which are more robust, and will have less resistance in transferring the water from one place to other. Polyethylene is a lightweight thermoplastic used…
  • Mr. Louis and purchasing manager walking to the open pit
    Mr. Louis and his purchasing manager are moving to the open pit. In background one may see a small building made out of metallic sheets. That is the future headquarter on the mining site.
  • The view from our new base
    This is the view from our new base for purpose of processing of tailing in Busia, Uganda. New base is directly in the village and not far from the working place. Two rooms apartment is about US $27.46 per month.
  • Possible accommodation nearby the mining sites
    This is how possible accommodation look like in the village nearby the mining site.
  • Miners working on the open pit
    These miners are doing their best to reach the rich gold ore on this open pit. They are excavating the soil in the hope to reach the hard rock. Pieces of rocks as overburden are found in the clay, silt and soft soil. They contain much gold, even few grams in few pieces of rocks. The mining site was not managed by our company at the time when this picture was taken.
  • The path to the open pit is blocked with the excavated soil
    Due to the lack of planning of excavation and movement of material, the path to the open pit is blocked with the excavated soil. For any long term business it is advisable that mining engineers properly plan the excavating activities. This mining site is not or was not managed by our company at the time of making this picture.
  • Work on the open pit
    Some rich gold ore have been found in this open pit. Miners are doing their best to reach the reef. Overburden rocks are found and identified being very rich in gold. This mining site is no organized by our company. We are organizing the processing of the tailings on nearest location.
  • Busia Town Baptist Church in Uganda
    Read the wordings for yourself and make your own conclusions.
  • Impact mills and accessories
    Impact mills are often used in mining and prospecting. Rock may be quickly crushed and gold particles separated. There exists various types of impact mills such as hammer or chain impact mills. In rural locations of Tanzania and Uganda we are constructing such impact mills on the ground, as they seem to be the best firsthand solutions. Only few parts such as flanged bearings are ordered from outside of the country or purchased somewhere in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania or in Mombasa, Kenya. We carefully note all the locations where any machine parts may be purchased. Towns in rural areas do not have metal supply so we are looking for parts at scrap metal yards.
  • Possible source for a drum
    Such gas bottle can be cut in pieces and 2 drums could be made out of the cylinder. Yet the metal wall is not as thick as we would like it. We do not know if it is worth trying for US $19.22 how much the scrap dealer asked us that day, or approximately 70,000 Ugs.
  • Not a choice for this drum
    This piece of metal scrap was used in some other historical machine. The idea was to convert it to the drum for our impact mill, yet it would not work as this metal is not good for welding purposes.
  • Possible drums for the impact mill
    This is a possible drum for the impact mill. We are reviewing scrap metal supplies as no other source of metal is available nearby. Local welders cannot bend the metal properly.
  • Wooden goat
    This is wooden goat. That is how it is named everywhere in Balkan area in Europe. Over here almost nobody knows that such improvized wooden legs may be used in construction and mining activities.
  • Ugandan bicycle transport
    The Ugandan bicycle transport is very interesting. Almost everything may be transported by bicycles, including coffins, goats, pigs, 20 meter long heavy wires, large wooden sheets, beds, Coca-Cola boxes, and 20-30 plastic chairs. Just anything goes for 500 to 2,000 Ugs. per round.
  • The foot during the work
    Sun is hot and soil dries fast on the foot.

  • Mr. Jean Louis prospecting on the open pit
    I was teaching miners how to use "Testio" which is Swahili word from Tanzania for the small black metallic gold pan that Tanzanian artisanal miners use to prospect for gold in rocks. Sadly that technology is not known in this part of Uganda. Miners did learn something, and need more training to start implementing the methods properly. They were advised to use the mortar and pestle and frequently check for gold in various rocks and the soil excavated.
  • Crushing rocks with hammer on a metallic surface
    The alternative to mortar and pestle is a simple hammer and metallic or other hard surface such as rock. Care must be taken to wash all the tools and the rocks before attempting to check the existence of the gold inside. That way, the salting with other gold particles and mercury is avoided.
  • Mr. Louis using the mortar and pestle
    Mortar and pestle are basic miners' tools for gold prospecting in rocks. All tools must be carefully washed before attempting to prospect for gold. The mortar, pestle, basins, gold pans, including the rocks being crushed, those all must be washed to prevent salting with mercury or previous gold particles. This mortar and pestle are too large and may be used in small gold production where crushers are not available. Smaller mortar and pestle are recommended including a simple hammer on a hard surface.
  • Crushing rocks while prospecting for gold
    Rocks are being crushed while prospecting for gold. Metallic surface may be used or other larger rock surfaces. Care shall be taken to carefully wash the surface, the hammer, including the rocks to be crushed and basin and gold pans so to avoid the salting with previous gold particles. Artisanal miners in this area were of the opinion that rocks need to be dried before crushing, that is not true, and with the care you may crush even quartz without rocks flying everywhere around. Keep your eyes safe…
  • Crushing gold particles on the metallic surface
    Gold particles are being crushed with the hammer on the metallic surface. Both the surface and the hammer, including any water basins and gold pans shall be thoroughly washed before making a check and before crushing so to avoid salting of previous gold particles into the new rocks.
  • Using hand lens to magnify the gold particles
    When prospecting for gold, one need to use the magnifier to see the smallest particles invisible to human eye. And yes, we found gold in rocks. Not only gold, we also have found other silver colored metal that we could not identify on the field. It could be iridium, unlikely pure silver, it could be silver colored gold. We will send the particles for analysis to other country.
  • Crushing the rocks with mortar and pestle
    This is the method to crush the rocks with mortar and pestle. This is larger version suitable to handle several rocks at once. It is advisable to first classify the mineral sizes with the sifter or sieve and then to gold pan the particles. Further, before any crushing, both the mortar and pestle, gold pans and any basins must be carefully washed so to avoid salting.
  • Mr. Louis showing rocks before crushing it with the mortar and pestle
    This is Mr. Louis showing a rock before crushing it with the mortar and pestle that he is holding in his hands.
  • Mr. Louis showing the crushed rocks in the basin
    The crushed rocks are transferred to the basin and later panned for gold and other precious metals. There was a problem that miners did not wash this basin, so it contained small particles including small mercury particles. They were advised to wash the basin, the mortar and pestle and any gold pans before making a check for gold.
  • Mortar and pestle is miners' basic tool
    Mortar and pestle is the basic tool in mining. The method is known since centuries. Yet this larger mortar and pestle are also used for production of gold over here whenever miners do not have better method to crush and grind the rocks. It is not recommended for quick checks of rocks due to its weight and unsafe handling.
  • Gold prospecting on the open pit
    Artisanal miners and Mr. Louis are prospecting for gold on this open pit. Water splash may be seen that is coming from the water pump which priming cover was opened for some reason. The pressure from the raised hose is bringing water to come out of the pump down-there. Very rich gold ore has been found little deeper in this open pit.
  • Water source for tailing processing
    Any water source may be used for processing of the tailings. Such is this entrance to the nearest river where branch of water was excavated so that distance is shortened. Water pumps work better on shorter distances.
  • Kete-kete or stealing of the ore in Uganda
    Local artisanal miners at least in this area have some bad habits of stealing ores and tailings from mining site owners. They are named kete-kete. It is advised never to steal ores from a fellow miner and to enter joint ventures and partnerships. Working together is much better than having bad blood between each other.
  • Mr. Louis advising the mining site owner about gold panning methods
    The mining site owner is being advised about proper gold panning methods. Knowledge is free and application of the knowledge is producing results. As on this day we have found other precious metal in the rocks available on this mining site. The type and value of the metal yet has to be identified.
  • With mud covered foot
    Obviously the soil looks like a German milk chocolate.
  • Mr. Jean Louis prospecting on the open pit

They were advised to use the mortar and pestle and frequently check for gold in various rocks and the soil excavated.
  • Prospecting for gold on the open pit
    On this day at least 10 people were working and prospecting for gold on this open pit. Difficulties are numerous. Very rich gold ore is down there not far from those miners on the picture. Such rich gold ore contains several grams of gold in just few handful of rocks. There are reasons why people are after it.
  • The priming cover on the water pump
    This is the priming cover on the water pump. It comes in plastic and metalic version. Often it is lost or stolen on mining sites. Without it, the pump is not going to work, or with improvized covers such as sticks, pump may easily get broken or damaged. To find the replacement cover one needs to order it from Kampala for some 10,000 Ugs. or US $2.75.

  • Bianco Pumpz water pump, model BIA-INOX120PC, 5-50 liter per minute
    This is 5-50 liters per minute water pump. That is too low pressure, we need more water so that material we are processing is thoroughly liquefied and that gold particles may pass down fully liberated.
  • Bianco Pumpz water pump, model BIA-INOX120PC with 5-50 liters per minute
    This is Bianco Pumpz water pump, we are watching the specifications before purchasing. This one is supposed to supply from 5 to 50 liters per minute with 3.5 Amperes consumption and 1.6 horse powers. We did not buy it.
  • Stronger hoses for the water pump
    These hoses may be used for better supply of water to the sluices. When hose is too soft it tends to get broken, repairs are expensive and holes too often especially in a thorns rich vegetation. That is why using better hoses is recommended. On longer distances the type of the hose and its inner resistance also influence the supply and pressure of the water.
  • The choice of pumps in Busia, Uganda
    The town simply lacks the supply of any water pumps. Hard to find. Nearest shops are in Jinja, the source of the river Nile or Kampala. Pumps as shown on this picture are used, and do not even function. Buying them is liability.

  • Prospecting for gold in rocks
    Prospecting for gold in rocks is a basic method and shall be foundation for every prospector. Some of gold prospectors are focusing only on alluvial and liberated gold and forget that such may be coming from rocks. And often rocks contain richer gold grade then alluvial soil. There are few simple and practical methods for prospecting for gold in rocks. In this category of Start Your Own Gold Mine, we are explaining methods and showing you videos on how to prospect for gold in rocks.

  • Gas heater for burning of mercury into the air, pollution everywhere
    This gas heater is used to burn the mercury so that it evaporates directly into the air. As soon as we take over this location, on this ground and area of the land we will forbid burning of the mercury and usage of the mercury. All processing and final gold recovery may be done without mercury. Gold concentrates may be dried, it may be nicely separated from black sand, and gold may be measured on the balance scale without using a single drop of mercury. The other problem is that material is already…

    This child on the mining site in Uganda is trying to recover all concentrate particles by using plain hands. The task is impossible. The pond itself is broken and gold is simply depositing on its bottom, it is impossible to take smallest gold particles by using simple hands.
  • Incorrect process of handling gold
    The process of handling gold at this site is totally incorrect. To capture small gold particles these boys are using the blue and red carpets and large bags. Instead that those carpets and bags are washing in a basin they are washing it in a broken pond. From there on, the material is transferred by hands into the basin! A lot of gold is then lost on the bottom of the pond. We are going to suck it all with our dredge equipment. And these children will be forbidden to access the mining site.
  • These children are washing mercury polluted ores on the mining site in Uganda
    These young boys of 10-16 years are washing mercury polluted material on this mining site in Uganda. I do not like this. They did obtain 0.58 grams of gold that day. However, children shall not be working on the mining site and they shall not be exposed to the dangerous substance - mercury. From this day on, I will try to show them better methods of gold recovery.
  • Child in a mercury polluted pond of water
    I do hate when I see this, but whatever I would do, either advice parents or tell to the license holder to refrain of allowing children to the mining site, these parents or mother with the child would just change the location to the other mercury polluted pond. What one can see here is that mother is bringing ores for processing on this place, they are crushing ores and then recovering gold by using mercury. Too many people pour mercury in this pond shown on this picture. Their children often help…

    The gold panning is most important method for gold prospecting and recovery of final gold from concentrates. On this mining site we are gold panning for particles of gold in the overburden soil. The open pit itself contains a lot of rich gold ore and operation requires more capital. However, the overbuden soil and the tailing may create potential to recover good quantity of gold in a month. Children found on the mining site are warned and advised to refrain from playing on unsafe location.
  • Children on the mining site
    These happy children are playing around the mining site that was left in unsafe condition. No warning signs and no indications of dangers have been placed on the mining site. We are advising local miners to change conditions and advise children and parents to refrain from playing on the mining site.

    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.

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.

    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
    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.
  • Surveying
    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.
  • Mining
    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.
  • Prospecting
    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.

  • Selling gold is easy in Tanzania, small scale mining, Geita, Tanzania
    You can see here many brokers buying gold directly in the bush, or let us say mining village. The location of the village is just 20 meter from the nature, and true bush. Any small scale miner that has gold, may come to these brokers and sell it. Brokers pay best prices on the market, something like 98% or 2% less the market price for gold. There is illusion that gold is cheap in Tanzania. It was not worth for us to move to city if gold can be cheaply sold in the bush, just 2 kilometers from our mining site. We were walking there without problems.
