The furnace is charged with beneficiated ore and crushed charcoal and lit. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply. It was a remarkable find; but the veins were so large that the mined-out tunnels were sometimes dozens of feet wide. Horizontal drive shafts along tunnels allow lifting in shafts not directly connected to the surface. The translation is notable not only for its clarity of language, but for the extensive footnotes, which detail the classical references to mining and metals, such as the Naturalis Historia of Pliny the Elderthe history of mining law in England, France, and the German states; safety in mines, including historical safety; and known minerals at the time that Agricola wrote De Re Metallica. Subsequent translations into other languages, including German, owe much to the Hoover translations, as their footnotes detail their difficulties with Agricola's invention of several hundred Latin expressions to cover Medieval German mining and milling terms unknown to classical Latin.

The text even covers the legal aspects of mining the use of boundary stones, forfeitures of titles, safety requirements of tunnel building in the s, and so on. The use of water for washing ores is discussed in great detail, e. Theme music R. Sean Daly is the son of a well-known BC British Columbia, Canada salmon fisherman and he learned his respect for the environment from his Dad and also his love of history and politics.

When a vein below ground is to be exploited a shaft is begun and a wooden shed with a windlass is placed above it. A lifelong Catholiche left in for more congenial surroundings in Italy. Over a period of time, Cirker convinced Hoover to do it. Agricola then describes in detail which substances should be added as fluxes as well as lead for smelting or assaying. The excavation itself could wander wherever it wanted to.

A Treatise of Metallica. book

Agricola, De Re Metallica H. So he was called over to Virginia City. Gold and silver are parted using an aqua which is probably nitric acid. Mines tend to be in mountains and gloomy valleys with little economic value. In the booklet, an unknown author asks for the privilege of using a new method for the salvaging of a grounded ship and then proceeds to describe and illustrate his approach.

Published four months after Agricola's death, De re metallica remained the standard textbook on mining and metallurgy for over two hundred years. Agricola then provides details of various kinds of machines for lifting weights.
