About Our Process
I am Lynn Jones, Pauls wife and the
writer of this page. I am a computer programmer analyst by training and not at all a
mining expert. That is why I know persons with average intellect can take our process and
do well with their ore. I handle most of the paperwork and initial testing of materials
for Paul now.
Because I am not a professional miner, I
wonder about some things that seem standard to mining people. For example, if you send you
ore away to a university or something they will put it through a big machine and tell you
how many molecules of precious metals are in the ore.
However, they will not tell you how many you
can get out. If you cant get it out, you cant sell it. You can press your face
against the glass at this scientific candy store, but you cant get it into your
The other thing I dont understand is
assay. Here you send your ore to somebody, pay them a bunch of money, they do something to
it and tell you what it is worth. Seems reasonable, but can you produce the precious
metals on a large scale? Usually not. Some guys send you to a particular university
professor to evaluate your ore. None of these guys seem to be selling production scale
Well, we arent either, yet. We are
selling you a way to figure it out for yourself. If you want to find out how much gold you
have, buy some CDE leach, a solvent extraction DVD, a small solvent extraction kit, a
scale and a magnetic stirrer.
Weight a small amount of ore. Leach your ore.
Weigh a dry filter. Put a measured amount through the solvent extraction process for gold
and recover the gold. Weigh the filter with the gold when it is dry. The difference is how
much gold you recovered. Compare the recovered gold with the dry weight of the ore you
started with. This will tell you how much gold is in your ore. Do the same with the
Platinum and Palladium if the leach color showed them to be in the mix ore drop them as
PGMs and sell them that way.
Now, who can fool, cheat, mislead, or scam
You know what you did, why you did it and how
much gold you have.
Now, call us and say that you have so many
tons of material you want to process each day. Decide if you want us to ship you a plant,
or do you want to pay Paul to come and design a whole plant around your specific
The amount of gold you found decides how much
money you want to spend.
We never recommend building a large production
size plant right away. It makes the learning curve much too expansive. Our plants are
modular and easy to increase in volume. That way the plant growth is paying for itself
with a minimal initial investment.
Even if you know the precious metals are
there, you still have to learn to get it out efficiently.
All of the big companies start with the test
tube, then a beaker, and then a pilot plant.
Why shouldnt you?
