Got the old “new” leach thing working on some ore, this is real ore to test its ability to handle mixed compounds in in the leach.
I am running it at 145 degrees temp controlled for long slow soak as this solution is not going to be a aggressive type of leach.

Almost no one here is qualified to tell you how not to blow yourself up, but one of our favorite members and one of the Group’s founders, Art Corbitt, would rail about ammonia in lraches being explosive. Keyword fulminate.
Cyanide tailings are the wirst offenders, so one really has to process that out before extraction.
Geology degrees I am told could have morr chemistry and mechanical engineering, so this may be normal for the industry.
