Abstract

Failed to see you last week as "you were in the hands of lawyers" at MP. Yours of 15th rcd. Do you mechanically separate sand & gravel in your dry process? Could you work a dry placer claim? Son has stake in flour gold claim; gold can't be secured by sluicing. Marg: "Yes we could work a dry placer but it would depend on the amount per cubic yard. Flour gold gives us no trouble. Can you send a sample of the sand by mail."
