Applications for the Modern Placer Miner
I am mapping a Diamond exploration pit we dug in Venezuela.

Applications for the modern placer miner 

These basic guidelines I will address in the following months are my experiences in the exploitation of placer mining deposits in many locations around the world.

With respect to Prospecting:
Lets go with the following.

Plan your campaign.  Carefully review your present and historical information and select your prospecting sites. You will need to address a business plan and required personnel. Even a two man prospecting crew needs a budget.

In general , establish disciplined prospecting procedures. I will address this in future posts in detail. Keep detailed records of anything you encounter in you exploration phase.
Topographic maps are 1st on your list, showing among other things, location, surface topography and your surface control lines. Example: 50x50 grid lines.

 Each prospect will dictate your control procedures and cross sections.. These very basic guidelines, I will address in the following months are my experiences in the exploitation of placer mining in many locations around the world.
