Does anyone know the formula for clay -b-gone. It is used to keep all your mucked water fluid. No matter how muddy it gets it will always be fluid. Diggerdan

Before I had him FIRED from the gov't...a local resident Geologist here suggested that I use CALGON WATER SOFTENER, to help break down the clay that usually coats amethyst mineral specimens freshly blasted from the ground.
He said it disrupts the affinity that finely-divided particles attract each other with....

Many a moon ago, we had a mining engineer, Gene Brooks, came to one of our meetings. He said sodium silicate, water glass, will turn mud so thick that it will coat your arm 1 inch thick to milk consistancy. He said you did not need much either. I do not know if it is still widely available, and i don't know if it is safe to use.

Other methods to dissolve clay are not good for the rivers...even clay-B-gone it not good to put in river systems.
Hydrogen peroxide is also used as a preservative and disinfectant and is used by archaeologists to dissolve clay from finds.

Good point Viking! Any of the substances that you would use to break up the clay probably should be used in a closed system!

You all:  Most of the ore I play with comes from a clay bench. I read somewhere that if the clay is placed on corrugated roofing metal and left in the sun to dry, the rsultant caly loses its gooey feel.  So I did just that, and it works beautifully.  No chemicals, no muss and very easy to work after that.  SMelter

Thanks seeker: I punched in clay placisity and got educated real fast.  Very interesting.  GMW sells a deflocculant that I would like to try one of these days.  So little time - so many experiments.  SMelter

Very interesting post! I wonder if the "salts" from the web link seeker posted work as quickly as Clay Gone? Star Star Star Star
