Keith,

Thanks for that explanation. I'm finding this very fascinating. When I first read about a "ten stamp" mill I wondered what the heck is that. The I finally found the answer. I believe the Gazette had some article a while back about these mills.

Another thing, didn't they use mercury to separate the gold by, for lack of a better word, foaming it to separate the gold form the overburden?
