FOREWORD
J. S. Wisdom printed his first edition ( Booklet ) Laboratory Hints and Efficiencies in 1958, thisis a reprint explaining in detail Vol. 2, four steps in field identification of minerals , rocks and ores,assaying, and smelting reduced to lay terms which any high school student or prospector can under -stand . This book gives the small mining operator the opportunity to enter in to the field of smeltingnever before offered. From Canada to South America this writer observed the need for thousands of prospects , small mines and small operators who could not ship ore at a profit , there was too little oreoccurrences , too little or no water, or too small a vein .or deposit to work by a company.However all mines were prospects at one time, and the science of mining has been taken fromthe prospector who has to rely on the custom smelters or mills to process his ore - mineral, thereforemany small mines in out of the way places could not be prospected especially in so called backwardor undeveloped countries.This printing allows the prospector , the student , the small-operator to enter into the field of mining, milling and smelting on a small scale. Thence wet or dry, my units may be packed in to theprospect area and worked at a profit, due to the fact the money is in the processing. This booklet tobe issued to customers using the Wisdom Chemico - Thermo process, equipment , mill - smelters of my design, under my patent rights , Copyrights and Trade Marks in process . The booklet has beendeveloped over the years from research of this need from a saddleblanket practical on the spot experience in Australia, we call it the outback, in western U. S. A., the hills, in Central and South Am-America, the jungle and in Canada , the bush.These printings are not filled with elaborate technological terms, college professors degrees,theory, but reduced to economic methods within the reach of the small man in terms he can understand. Therefore thousands of little plants may produce , as was the case in the days of the SpanishConquistadores. Whereas in the old mine camps one today observes the arrasta, the horse whim, thelittle coke furnace. These arts are lost today , or have been digested by the big companies who haveput the small man and prospector out of business. However it must be remembered these thousands of small mines in the years past built the great democracies, republics and stabilized their economies,only to be gobbled up by the big companies. My book now makes it possible for the little man toenter into the mining field from A to Z , and process his prospect to a saleable state either in commercial bar , or develop a prospect to a mine state of commercial consequences.It is to be remembered that the money is in the processing, and the thousands of small operations of yesteryears made great our countries of today. Repetition is now possible under my Trade MarksPatents ( International) and book of instructions.This reprint entails field tests, prospecting, mining, milling and most important , smelting-fuming. Condensed, simplified on the important minerals, metals, elements and rare metal- elementsheretoforeinaccesible to the small mining operator, prospectors and mine owners. The book containschemical tests , hydro-metallurgical processes, floatation, spectroscopy, assaying.This is not just another technical book on minerals, rocks, geology, engineering, but a simplequick test system for field identification prospecting for, and processing the important minerals,elements within the reach of the small man, 98 elements, more than 300 ores- minerals.I am not a white collar man in some college or mining school who never saw a mine, muchless produce, dealing with book theory, which work in laboratories, but in the bush, or back countrybut I go in to the practical end on mining-milling - smelting on any small prospect and my wholeset up can be packed anywhere and moved the same day.This book of instructions deals with rocks, minerals, elements, ores as they are found in nature alloyed, complex, black sand and hidden values, regardless of complexity or what part of the worldare found. The writer has a production record, based on years of field experience, using developingand researching as well as working for the major companies including the A.E.C.I have taught in adultclasses dealing with metallurgy, chemistry and field prospecting and as a matter-of-fact several majormines-mills-smelters were founded on my process including Olivine Exploration Ltd. a major platinumgold producer.My production record includes major companies I worked for, and a personal production recordin my own mining interests and companies.YOU TOO CAN SMELT - J. S. Wisdom, Tulameen, B. C, Canada
