 <-wave-> It warmed up to 48 here today  [!!DANCE!!] Cleaned up more preg. solution. This is the preg. I am precipitating the silver out of. The solids are still in the bucket  <-dont~know-> Less than a gallon to go and it will all be filtered. I'm just turning the rest into copper(ll) sulfate, and should have around 240 grams of silver when it's done. Some pics. 
just keep digging

SD

I am VERY interested to see how your experiment is doing and leaching the Silver... We have areas of very high silver and would like to take a little out of the cons before it heads to the smelter if we can....  ;)

 <-wave-> Here's some pics. of the silver after precip.  I use 40 to 60 %  H2SO4.  I'm after copper and anything above it on the periodic table.  If you don't have too many acid consumers (ie: copper etc ).  SSN or straight Nitric Leach might work  <-don't~know-> Just gotta be love'n that hydrometallurgy!

Great pics again SD!  {cool^sign}

Can you give us a little more info on that first pic? The one with the nice "gold" colors in the crystals?  ;D

 <-wave-> I always view rusty crystals as iron? Here pics. of the AuAL2 ( purple gold) Still a fair amount of copper, palladium and silver etc., but the gallon jar of  silver precip  that is in the HNO3.  I like that it is  pretty clean. It's over two inches deep in a 10 inch jar. I like SSN leach on the higher grade silver ore.  It helps pull the gold  <-yes_>better. The best thing is copper is $6000.00 + or- a ton  {cool^sign} On a completely different note, some local mining news:
