Wanted: placer miner with heavy equipment
« on: February 09, 2007, 05:40:46 PM »
We have a large placer property in the Circle Mining District of Alaska with road access. It has about 4,000,000 cubic yards of $19 to $20 of gold and tin and tungsten. There appears to be enough cassiterite (tin) and wolframite (tungsten) to sweeten the value of the gold values. Twenty-eight excavator tests done by Dr. Ernie Wolff showed the ground to average $19.17 at $600 gold. These samples did not reach bedrock. Cassiterite sells for about $4 per pound and wolframite sells for about $5.50 per pound. There is plenty of these heavy minerals there, but we dont know how much at this time. We think the ground will yield at least $30 per yard with all the minerals and with the bedrock concentrations.

We are looking for an experienced large volume placer miner who can recover the gold, tin and tungsten in at least a 100 yard per hour operation. We would like to get to mining this summer.
