I've mined and assayed in Kern County, and I can tell you that that level may be profitable now, but it sure wasn't back then. We busted our asses breaking and digging and picking quartz veins, and melting out samples. The direct path to profitability, which we couldn't use for good reason, is cyanide leaching.
As the song says,
"I nearly starved to death, boys,
He did mistreat me so.
An' I never saved a dollar up...
In the pay of Diamond Joe."
And thanks for the really wonderful Name Post!! It made my heart swell up! LOL
