Update - Still working!

Hi there. Just wanted to let you know what I, and other Crew members, have been working on since the last update.

LH Business

  • I spent some time trying to figure out how to effectively use Facebook. Personal Page, Business Page, and Groups. I finally watched a video that explained what each one does and how to use them to get people interested in what I’m doing. Thanks Tanya (!
  • This stuff might seem intuitive to most people but it’s not for me. Must be because I’m old school (or just old). 😉


  • I wrote up and posted Basalt Crushing Technique 3 today. This technique uses splitting wedge, PVC pipe, and cast-iron skillet. It worked but was really slow. Time to buy a motorized machine to do this.
  • Two of the manufacturers I contacted yesterday responded.
    • Goldquest, LLC ( – They make the Crazy Crusher manual rock crusher.
      • They responded that it would work but it might take weeks to get through 200+ pounds of basalt gravel. I really appreciate their honesty. I’m going to take this one off the list. I don’t have weeks of manual labor to spend on this.
    • Crisson Gold Mine ( – They also make an angle grinder impact crusher.
      • Their response is that it will do the job. It will be noisy but fast. This might work.

Crew-led Research

  • I just didn’t have time today to add the papers I found to the various oxygen extraction techniques.
