Virginia, it looks like according to the Oklahoma Tax Commission you also have an oil, gas well.  I looked up the other Eason,   26_23N 21N, 3W and it is classified as an oil.  Devon is finally…Continue

Thanks for the replies.

Rob, Yes, there are many ways but I'd guess they would use the least expensive.  "Undoubtedly, aqua regia method is an easy gold recovery process. To prepare aqua regia we need to mix one part of nitric acid and three parts of hydrochloric acid." http://recovercomputergold.com/how-to-recover-gold-from-aqua-regia.html

NOTE: Drilling completion mud contains hydrochloric acid.  Mud acid is also called hydrofluoric-hydrochloric acid.

Are oil companies trying to find ways to capture these elements?
Comment by Martha McMorries 2 hours ago

Rob, The Black shale is everywhere all across OK, but it many to be up to us mineral owners to determine the elemental and chemical properties of the shale and formation water of our minerals. Some areas in OK will be more prone than others as the rock cycle for shale allows the fine shale particles to remain suspended in a 'Brine' fluid (saltwater) which is deposited in ancient lagoons, river deltas, and on basin shelves.  But salt water 'Brine" is produced by hundreds of OK wells and "about 95 % of the dissolved mater in most OK brines is magnesium chloride."  "A process for the extraction of rare earth elements like Platinum and Yttrium, from a rare earth element-bearing ore or concentrate, comprises the steps of leaching the rare earth element-bearing ore (iron ore) or concentrate with a lixiviant of hydrochloric acid and magnesium chloride at atmospheric pressure at a temperature of from 90° C. to the boiling point of the solution and at an Eh of at least 200 mV.  After a liquid/solids separation step, the solution obtained is subjected to steps for removal of iron and for recovery of rare earth elements."

Does this occur in just that small area of Garfield county?
Comment by Martha McMorries 4 hours ago

Virginia, Not only exhibits, but leases need to be rewritten as well. I'm working on it, but need a chemist and a lab to help me prove the fluid and core samples, because the Platinum is a rare earth element known as a "high-field-strength element which is a element of high valency (greater than 2), e.g. Sn, W, and U.  These high valency elements are not readily incorporated into the lattices of common rock-forming silicate minerals. During crystallization of igneous rocks the platinum is continually concentrated into residual pegmatitic or hydrothermal fluids, from which it may be precipitated in economic concentrations." The igneous rock has been transformed by Metasomatism which is the chemical alteration of a rock by hydrothermal and other fluids. Basically, the Platinum atoms are loosely attached to the iron ore in the shale which is surrounded by formation water, so the Platinum is being recovered from the waste water before disposal.

Thank you for all the wonderful information.  Does this mean that we need to put something else in our exhibit?  I am already up to 5 pages on my addendum plus a 2 page lease.  May just write a book on what can and can't be done as each company has a different way of looking at things they need.

Rob, Yes, the platinum recovery is the result of huge amounts of information resulting from hundreds of scientific studies.  We will ever see the days of pick axes, and pans again, but mineral owners will still have to prove it's our gold.

Lots of information, thank you
