Since 1981, this Beginners Kit has helped many miners with their lab startup. Probably the most important factor of success in prospecting and gold recovery mill operation is the number of assay completed - you can do 6 assays at a time with this Kit.
At one time, fire assaying was a deep dark secret. Now in this modern world, education can be had by those who want to learn. Many miners have learned to do their own fire assays and Action Mining is the only company in the world to offer complete fire assay kits with instructions!
Simply mix your ore with our Premixed Flux (non-leaded flux available for international sales-obtain & add lead locally) in a Crucible. Place it in the Furnace. In an hour, pour the entire batch into the Pouring Mold. When it has cooled, break off the lead button that has formed. Place the lead button on a Cupel and back into the Furnace. Soon any precious metals present will remain in the form of a small bead. All materials and equipment are included in this kit so that you can do your own assays and determine the weight of the bead, without other equipment. Advanced Assay Kits also available - ask for details!
Searching the industry looking for low cost mining laboratory equipment, we are continually testing new items. Now the necessary equipment can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of past mining laboratories. Where low cost equipment could not be found, we have manufactured the equipment ourselves. Action Mining’s Impact Mill is an example of this, selling for a fraction of the cost of similar items that do the same job.
If you are going into mining or if you are in mining, consider putting in your own lab. A small backyard facility can prevent the loss of a great deal of time and money. We always answer questions on the phone, and will help with setting up your lab. We believe that a miner without a lab is like a hospital without a MRI machine. Neither can really tell what is happening without the proper tools.
