Oh, just say you went panning and got lucky with a few nuggets.

If you had permission from the land owner or staked a claim or similar then the assay office would not quibble unless you showed up with silly amounts.

That is until your gold assayed to be over nine 9s pure.

So mix some grit in. Should be soft enough if it's four ninths bullion quality.

You don't honestly think the assay office is going to say "This is too high a quality, we can't buy it".

I guess there's only one way to find out isn't there.

Well... a bit of copper in the melt to give 22 carat purity should get you under the radar.

Natural nuggets usually have a bit of silver in them... natural "electrum" gold/silver mix.

I assume you know what you are doing with a crucible. Recently a friend and I experimented with refining electrical scrap computers for gold and silver content - we didn't recover more than a flake. You need maybe 50 processors and motherboards to really make it worthwhile. (And loads of chemicals).

Heating up the results in a crucible was fun, but it was nearly all copper. If you are going that route, some kiln offcuts (ceramic fibers) are very helpful for keeping the heat in one place - they will still catch fire at gold melting point but they help to get you up there.

I have most all the chemicals. Meuriatic acid (hydrochloric acid) is the most used one.

My biggest difficulty with circuit board recycling is the coating on the tracings. I don't know what it's made of but acetone and other highly volatile solvents don't even soften it.

Also I read about one transmutation story. The guy assayed his newly created gold by inquartation with silver and it came out with more gold and less silver than he started with.

That's not really how you would go about using magic to get money. There are many more efficient ways to get it than smashing atoms together or whatever; I would say that literally making the money yourself is absurd.

Magic has limits based upon the strength of your own will power and skill. No matter how skilled a person becomes those limits will remain. Alchemy's limits are based on the integrity of matter itself,and the laws of physics.

Both deal with psychic energy, but I would argue that human limitations are going to be reached long before matter would disintegrate due to being overcharged with psychic energy.

Your argument is not really valid because you are basically comparing the efforts of a single human to the exponentially increasing raw power of an artificially created singularity.

This thread's gone off topic a bit... those interested in why I really don't want to get involved with James Randi might find this declassified report on him very enlightening;-

There is no tactic too low for this close-minded manipulator and don't you ever forget it.

I have been researching psi energy in terms of making it out of other types of energy. The greatest success I have had so far is making psi energy out of void energy.

The psi out of void process is hugely stressful and even when I succeeded in lowering the difficulty of the process by information compression, then the overcharging of my aura was hugely stressful. It is probably the finest spiritual alchemy invented because there is an infinite amount of void energy.

I have been analyzing psi energy and it becomes whatever it interacts with so I study psi interaction with All That Is for increased skill with more stress. Now I think of alchemy in terms of making things easier to eat in ways that benefit psychic development
