Question on per yard projections ( 16:55:52 MonAug 26 2013 )

Hello everyone,

Fairly new member here, been lurking for some time and so far have three trips to the Klamath River chalked up.

Older brother and I have been working on one claim and have gotten some nice gold. No nuggets yet but some pickers and total around 1/2 oz.

After learning that rough panning is faster than using a battery powered high banker our last trip was the most productive. Most gold was gotten after my brother jacked and pried open a large crevice.

I've watched Dave's videos but still have some questions on extrapolating out from amount of gold in a particular pan to what would be in say a yard of material.

One question I have that would be of great help is what would the dimensions be of a cube of one grain of gold?

Regards,

DanP

One grain of gold has about the same size as a pice of course ground pepper.

A few items in your figuring, it is worth about $2.90 and if you use 5 gallon buckets to move your material, there are about 40 FULL 5 gallon buckets in yard

A grain of gold is a weight measure in the troy system used to weigh gold.

IE;

One troy ounce = 20 dwt = 480 grains = 31.103 grams

Ratled is correct that at around $1400.00 a grain is worth around $3.00, however placer gold is not pure and 75% of spot is what most people offer for placer gold which makes a grain honestly worth around $2.00

So a one grain cube of 24K gold would measure 0.059" on one side. A tiny bit less than 1/16".

A one ounce cube of 24K would measure 0.462" on one side.

What initially confused me was WIKI-answers listed one ounce of gold as being a 0.11101" cube based on weight and size of FT Knox ingots.
