 <-wave-> Changed the pipe to plate. Added two drops sulfuric (I don't have any Hydrochloric).  Now the wait.  Here'some pics of improvements. Left it enough inside audit to protect it from rain.  The orange mud that settles out averages .16 oz. au  per ton.  If I ever get the portal stable I can clean out the tunnel.  Its just a little over 1800 ft. long with around 4 feet of mud that has precipitated out of the water after my grandpa blasted the entrance shut in 1973.  Thanks.

 <-wave-> Yes, same water. <-d'oh-> I have smaller copper I could use.  I'll set up a new batch tomorrow with fresh water and less surface area. What would be the best ph level?

 <-wave->Sorry so slow. End of season dirt work frenzy  [^Crazy!#] . Set up larger test with gravity water flow. Here are some pics. Simple but seems to work.  What if i use dc current on plates? I'm amazed at how much metal can be harvested this way.  Thanks again tinmanII.
