# Sampling methods and procedures

We present here the standard sampling, coning, quartering, reducing of samples and the whole sampling series of pictures and videos to Start Your Own Gold Mine for our staff members, gold prospectors and clients. Videos and pictures on sampling methods and procedures are not necessary published in certain order. We are advising clients and staff members upon need and demand, on which video and picture to watch, to understand proper and standard sampling methods and preparations of samples.

• Proper sampling mixing and reducation on canvas
We are training our staff members to understand and execute proper sampling procedures. On these pictures and video you may observe how we have taken every third scoop from each bucket with gold concentrates, thereafter we have been using standard mixing methods and reduction of sample by quartering until we remained with just a kilogram or less. The final sample can be taken to the laboratory for assaying.
• Leverage with mortar and pestle to crush larger rocks
This is one way on how to easier crush larger rocks during sampling process. The leverage may be used to raise the mortar and crush the rocks in the pestle. Even child of 12 years can handle the leverage and help in such operation. We don't employ children. This is was our neighbor in Mwanza who helped to make this movie.
• 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.
