It takes a smart dog to find hidden treasures


This site is dedicated to sharing the practical information I have gathered in over 40 years of experience. 

What you will find

In the Topics section, I will be placing some general discussions on mining and mineral processing.  Current Topic is on Moon and Space Minig!

In the Notebook section, I have placed some basic introductory discussions of mining and mineral processing. 

In the Software section I have some spreadsheets to help with mineral processing applications that go along with some of the write-ups.

I hope thay are of some help.
