Q: Where does Mercury Come from?
A:
Mercury is found in cinnabar ores. Low levels of mercury are also in the biosphere.
It is also found in fossil fuels like gas, coal, and oil

Glacial Ginseng Co

About Michael Hunter and Glacial Ginseng Co.
by, Mary Hunter
He has a vision in life, at a time of life when most men are planning to retire and play golf the rest of their days To see the endangered specie, ginseng re-introduced into the wild, back into the woods where it once grew naturally for hundreds of years His efforts to introduce genetically cross-bred seeds have been tireless.

 Due to the great demand for it in the past, ginseng was gathered to the point of almost disappearing from the wild.  In the cultures of China, Japan, Korea and through out the regions of Asia, ginseng is prized for its reputed powers to cleanse the blood, extend life, and of course the very strong belief that it is a powerful aphrodisiac.  Growing up in a family that had been involved in ginseng gathering and growing for three generations, gave Michael a invaluable education.  He absorbed a wealth of knowledge of ginseng and harvesting.

Mr. Hunters mission is indeed two-fold.  While he works, tirelessly towards the goal of genetically cross-bred ginseng.  The result of which should bring about the growth of healthier, hardier, longer living plants.  He also pursues the goal of helping families get started growing ginseng and making a worthy profit for those families.

A cottage industry the benefits the whole family and our wilderness as well Indeed a worthy effort.  Mr. Hunter has spent all of his life in the wilderness.  As a child he spent every fall, in the woods, hunting, fishing, and of course hunting ginseng.

This time spent in the wilderness with his father gave young Michael a wealth of survival skills.  It also gave him a deep appreciation of the unique and valuable asset we have in our forests here in Michigan, and elsewhere.  It has instilled a lifelong respect for the wilderness and a deep conviction that it needs to be preserved and also encouraged to grow better.  Because of his Native American heritage, Michael believes in the powers of natural herbs and plants to heal a variety of ills, and that the mind and body work hand in hand in the healing process.

A factual biography of the life of Michael Hunter would rival any work of adventure/fiction on the best seller lists today,  Woodsman, prospector, guide, timber cruiser, webmaster, editor, seed and root dealer and grower, and recognized humanitarian Michael Hunter is a very multi-faceted man.  His close association with the USDA and Michigan State University is a long standing and very cordial working relationship.

Which, in the near future, may be the source of some very exciting news for the ginseng industry. These are the things to keep in mind when reading his book "The Ginseng Growers Guide", or when reading through the website at www.ginseng-seed.com   This is a man who has committed himself to a vision and has invested his time, expertise, and money, plus part of himself toward having it realized.

Michael realizes that he may not see the final results of his goals, But all of our children and grandchildren will.  That is his life long quest Michael Hunter, owner of Glacial Ginseng Company, he is far from being your average guy, but once you have met him you feel at ease with him and you just begin to realize the depth of him.

He is a humanitarian, a logger, a miner, a ginsengers, a trail blazer, an explorer, a pioneer, a fisherman, a nature balancer, a teacher, a student, an author, and a guide And a very bold one of each.  A  modern day "Indiana Jones" He has done all of the above and has written a book, Ginseng Grower’s Guide,  which is both informative and interesting.

When you read his book, keep in mind every paragraph is but one fraction of his knowledge.  As a Native American, he often relies on his Indian background as his guide He tells people, "White man walk many miles, see little; Indian walk little, see much" How true! His dream is of balancing man and nature.

  His ideas are both moneymaking and environmentally correct  I have walked the woods with him and immediately, I am struck by how at home he is It is there in the woods where you can see his dream in his eyes, balancing nature with man.  Take what you need and leave the rest.

Balance always balance, I go to church; he goes to the woods.  He has helped me see how we are all living spirits, people, trees, plants, fish and definitely his dog "Buddy".  If we follow our spirits like we do our nose, we will see our dreams become reality.

Periodically, throughout this year Glacial Ginseng Company and Michael will put out newsletters so people who are interested can literally "watch" him as he balances his life with nature and ginseng.  You won’t be bored, either.  You can balance most things, new – old, as in old techniques and new technology.  Our guide, Michael, will take you through all the seasons; harvesting timber, fall and spring planting of ginseng, mining for gold and diamonds, harvesting ginseng seeds and roots, hunting, fishing and trapping.

As your ginseng matures beside your timber, you will achieve a balance between forestry and farming that will give you both financial and personal gratification.  Michael believes that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear, I believe that, also.  He believes in building a strong foundation in both his personal and business life.  He is a trailblazer, pioneer, explorer all rolled into one.

By, Michael Hunter
 You could say that I was literally born into the ginseng business My Mother still enjoys telling the story of how Dad took her out hunting for ginseng three days before I was born.  Early fall is when the berries start to turn red and Dad always enjoyed his bow hunting, the October season, here in Michigan, coincides very nicely with ginseng harvesting.

My Dad felt that it was important that I be able to live off the land, as well as be able to live in a conventional society.  He was a product of the depression era, and grew up in extremely hard times.  Ginseng was one of the things that did move in the depression, that and black walnut logs.  For the last thirty-two years, I have worked as a timber cruiser for American Veneer Company, this also gave me an excellent chance to pursue the hunt of the wild ginseng.

I worked a number of years in the Minnesota and Wisconsin regions and got very involved with the woods growers of ginseng/  They used to have me come in and balance the woods, so that we could get the light right in the forest.  The passing of the 1994 ginseng law here in Michigan, opened up this territory.  As a timber cruiser, my work was seasonal.

As the sap came down in the trees and the logging operations started for the year, it was my job to mark the trees, select the more mature trees, etc;  So l have always been involved in the business.  Dad and I wanted to get into the idea of commercially growing ginseng.  We were getting there in '72, when they passed the endangered species act which included ginseng.

Dad wanted to grow ginseng for his retirement, I am trying to go on to make his dream a reality.  Timber season ends in early spring when the sap starts to rise, I usually spent my summers out in the gold fields of the western states.  Originally as a prospector looking for the mother lode, but as the years passed, I found it was much more interesting to be a mining guide, taking the weekend prospectors out.

The real enjoyment is in the finding! The last two years have produced some very serious changes in my life. Tendonitis, A old mining injury to my right arm, has come back to haunt me.  This along with the injury to my left hand, has led me to early retirement.  I am going to continue on with the business, so I am using this web site to write a new book.  It will be about growing ginseng, forestry, fishing, recreational gold and diamond prospecting and river reclamation.  It will be dedicated to balancing man, nature and seeing Ginseng reestablished in my lifetime. I intend to continue my ginseng seed business and research. I feel that I can do more to reestablishing ginseng into its Natural Environment with a web page, than any other way. 

"Our Family"  Has Been in the  Ginseng Business for 189 Years.  Ginseng has been in our family for many generations.  It began with my great-great-great Grandfather who, in 1812, married a Seneca Chieftain's daughter and became one of Michigan's pioneers in the Ginseng and Fur business.
He worked for the J J Astor Fur Co., out of Fort Detroit. 

 Harold G Hunter, my father, was a Ginseng Dealer for over 50 years.  All of the local ginseng gatherers used to bring their Ginseng to him, and he would market it for them.
I am trying to follow his foot steps.

Been thinking about what Dad told me years ago
about hunting wild ginseng and sweet spots. You walk in on one of them, you can just feel it there, but the deer trails have a tendency to go from one of these sweet spots to another if you follow them along. Of course, hunting for wild ginseng along deer trails is an old timers trick, but when the deer get to these sweets spots, they’re looking for the ginseng berries to eat them. Well, they eat the berries, but the seeds pass right through the deer, consequently the Deer are doing some real nice work for us.

I Wear A Brown County Diamond Ring!

 

The Legend of the Dowagiac Diamond
As told to me and my father, by Earl Mesner around 1953.

My father’s Great Uncle was Earl Mesner, whom Dad said was the very last of the full-blooded Seneca Indians left in Michigan.

He brought some furs over to Dad, who bought both furs and ginseng. We were sitting out in his car because my Mother didn’t allow smoking in the house. Earl must have been in his eighties at the time, Dad was sitting in the front seat and I was in the back, I couldn’t have been more than ten or eleven at the time. Earl had been sitting there quiet for several minutes, and he just reached into his pocket and pulled out a diamond in the rough. As my eyes were spellbound by the brilliance of that stone in the sunlight, Earl said this is the Dowagiac diamond’s little sister. This stone was about the size of my thumbnail, probably around three carets. He said you should have seen her big sister. He went on to explain how that during the depression he had the chance to see the Dowagiac diamond, which was found in the early thirties near the Indiana Michigan border and weighted 10.875 carets. I asked him "Well how big was its big sister?" and he said, "the size of a woman’s fist." He went on to tell my father and me that as a young man about my age at the time, his grandfather had taken him to see the "woman stone". It was held in great reverence by the Seneca and according to the legend gave great powers to the wearer, primarily the power to heal and the power to destroy.

This has led to a lifelong pursuit of diamond prospecting. Now the total yield of this endeavor I refer to as the Brown County diamond, which I wear rather proudly on my right hand. I found the diamond in 1992 in Brown County Indiana, while prospecting for gold. I saw it in my gold pan. Picked it up, looked at it and threw it over my left shoulder, just as I realized what it was. I searched for it for several hours, to no avail. I returned two nights later with an ultraviolet light that I could run off of a twelve-volt battery. A diamond in the rough will glow under ultraviolet light.  I had no more than turned the light on in the area and there it lay. In the rough it was a shade over a caret and a half, it cut to a little over one half caret.

Diamonds have been found in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. These diamonds are the result of glacial movement over kimberlite pipes and laproite deposits.

That's A Gold King 2 1/2" Dredge I Sold
Them, At That Time.

 I usually spent my summers out in the gold fields of the western states, but not this summer, I am going to be in Indiana. Originally as a prospector looking for the mother lode, but as the years passed, I found it was much more interesting to be a mining guide, taking the weekend prospectors out. The real enjoyment is in the finding!


Another thing worth mentioning is the real possibility of finding a glacial diamond while gold prospecting. Over the years, there have been many very spectacular diamonds found by gold prospectors and other folks in Indiana and the surrounding states. Some of these weighed several carats and were of very fine quality. They originated in kimberlite deposits north of the Canadian gold fields and were transported and fanned out all across this region by the same forces that deposited gold. Diamonds are not much heavier than your average rock. They have a specific gravity of around 3.51, but that is enough for them to occasionally end up in your concentrates. I have found several small ones myself over the years and I am always on the lookout for them whenever I’m doing a cleanup. You are probably a hundred times more likely to find a one carat diamond than you are a one ounce gold nugget in Indiana, so be sure to check your cons carefully!

One last word of wisdom for my fellow Hoosier prospectors: Myself and others have worked very hard to legalize gold prospecting in Indiana, and we sure hope to keep it that way. So if you decide to prospect here, please follow the rules and help us keep it open for everyone. It saddens my heart to see what has happened to prospecting out West in recent years. If they are allowed to get away with that, who knows where or what will be next. There are a few common sense things that we, as prospectors, can do to keep things running smoothly in Indiana. By being polite and respectful to property owners, picking up our trash, filling in our holes and following the DNR’s rules, I think we will be able to enjoy this American tradition for many years to come, at least here in the Hoosier state.

There is plenty of gold in Indiana and the Midwest as a whole for everyone, and I hope anyone who pursues it finds their fortune! Remember, half the fun is in the hunt and the great memories it brings. Best of luck to you all!

 

"Gold" 
In Eaton Rapids Michigan?

Trout Fishing and Dams Too?

A PRACTICAL METHOD OF REMOVING THE SILT IN THE GRAND RIVER.

Using a simple method, of dredging with hydraulic mining methods, the silt, Mercury and other heavy minerals, such as gold, diamonds, etc. can be removed from the bottom of the Grand River in Eaton Rapids.  With the bottom cleaned and fish habitat restored, this could be a prime fishing attraction, and a beautiful lake type setting to attract folks looking to have a nice home on an attractive recreational waterway.

The hydraulic mining dredge works like the principle of a large carpet shampooed.  Water is pumped at high pressure through a nozzle, breaking up and dissipating the silt and heavy minerals such as mercury, etc.  A suction hose pumps these up top and into a sluice box, where the heavy minerals are trapped and the water runs back into the river.

If you have ever saw how a garden hose aimed at the ground will actually dig a hole in the sand, it is the same principle.

Once the silt is removed, the gravel bottom is clean and prime habitat for all species of game fish.  There have been record game fish taken out of the Grand River at Eaton Rapids and could be again.

This equipment can also make “settling ponds”  (depressions in the lake bottom) so that in the spring when the silt comes washing down the river, it will settle in these depressions and then easily dredged out.  Keeping the river clean with a minimum of effort and expense.

This type of dredge is known in Arizona and other mining areas as an “Arizona High Banker”.

Michael Hunter, who was born in Eaton Rapids, is very familiar with this method.  A retired timber buyer, prospector, and licensed ginseng dealer.  Mr. Hunter has worked with and modified this equipment for this purpose many, many times.  Michaels mother is a Corbin.  The Corbin family made significant contributions to the early growth and progress of Eaton Rapids as a community.

Seeing the depth of the silt on an electronic fish finder is a real eye opener as to the extent of the silt that has built up.  Dams compound the problem as they trap the silt and it just keeps building up and building up against them.

This method is a prototype, on a smaller scale of course, of what is being done to many dams in the Western part of our country, on the many rivers that have been harnessed for energy and irrigation.

Gold, diamonds and fishing, what do they have in common? Lets start with trout fishing and dams. During the 1930’s we built a lot of dams across this country.  Now dams are great, we get power from them, they control erosion, etc., however we have no more spring floods.  This causes the silt to compact and forms a very thick crust over the gravel beds where the trout used to spawn. Trout clean their beds with their tail and there is no way that they can break through the silt crust. 

 You can hardly get through it with a modern suction dredge.  It can be done and these people know how to do it.   http://www.keeneeng.com/ 

Recreational mining by individual prospectors using suction dredges will rejuvenate this natural fish habitat. All a suction dredge does is lift up the gravel and separate any gold and diamonds, and puts the gravel right back. It is most unfortunate that Michigan has no laws regulating recreational mining. This closes the doors to a whole industry that could be beneficial both to the recreational users and my fellow trout fishermen.

However, this same equipment will dredge out fishponds and in Michigan you are only required to get the townships permission to dig a pond less than five acres in size. Our area is primarily a marine deposit that is saturated with small kettles or sinkholes as they are called around here. Large blocks of ice melting caused these, and that gold will lay right at the bottom, on the sandstone that is our bedrock here. Remember the first rule of gold prospecting, never stop digging until you are on bedrock, and we have modern equipment that can go thirty feet.

As a young man, I remember the old timers who brought ginseng to Dad, they were a mysterious group. Many times they would sit and talk, this one fellow in particular used to carry a little glass bottle of gold with him. He wouldn't tell me where he was taking it, other than on the Raisin River in southern Michigan. It kind of fascinated me. This led to a summertime pursuit of recreational mining. In our area of Michigan, we've got gold. This is where the glacial fault from the last ice age melted. There is a dome under Michigan, the minerals moved to the inside of the dome. The dome ends between Jackson and Lansing and the glacier curved around it a little bit, then it melted. This soil in our area is some of the most highly prized ginseng soil in the world because of this. We have gold in the Kalamazoo River by Concord.

For years the ginseng coming out of the Carolinas has been the highest prized ginseng in the world. That is gold bearing territory down there.

As my eyes were spellbound by the brilliance of that stone in the sunlight, Earl said this is the Dowagiac diamond’s little sister. This stone was about the size of my thumbnail, probably around three carets. I asked him where the stone had been found and all he would tell me was that it came from the place where the water used to run fast on the river.  He said you should have seen her big sister. He went on to explain how that during the depression he had the chance to see the Dowagiac diamond, which was found in the early thirties near the Indiana Michigan border and weighted 10.875 carets.

This has led to a lifelong pursuit of diamond prospecting. Now the total yield of this endeavor I refer to as the Brown County diamond, which I wear rather proudly on my right hand. I found the diamond in 1972 in Brown County Indiana, while prospecting for gold. I saw it in my gold pan.

In the rough it was a shade over a caret and a half, it cut to a little over one half caret.

Diamonds have been found in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. These diamonds are the result of glacial movement over kimberlite pipes and laproite deposits.

Diamonds have three weaknesses:

They will glow under ultraviolet light in the rough if they are freshly washed, like after a rainstorm.

They are slightly lighter than gravel and can be trapped in a secondary trap built into a gold dredge. I am having a dredge custom built that will trap both diamonds and gold, and also dig real good fishponds, inexpensively.

They can be trapped by grease. This is where the copper gold pan comes in, in places where they prospect for diamonds the prospectors grease their pans with axle grease then they place the pans in the campfire this melts the grease, which is then poured off, leaving any diamonds that might have been found.

"Free Visual Site "
Evaluations
With A  Camera 

A  service being offered by Glacial Ginseng Company is a visual site evaluation from pictures taken with a camera.   A question that I am being asked is "do I have a good site for growing ginseng?" one picture is worth a thousand words, and so what I am proposing to do is to have you go to your woods and starting in the southwest corner, walk towards the northeast corner, at about 2:00 in the afternoon. 

Take pictures to your left and to your right as you walk.  The number of pictures is kind of up to you and depends on how big a piece of land you are working with, shoot up the rest of the film that is in your camera, a half a dozen good pictures on a ten acre woods should give me an idea of what your site is like.  Adjust the number of pictures by the size of your woods.   Have someone stand about 20 yards away and try to get the bottom of their feet just nicely in the picture.  Take some pictures of some of the places that you think ginseng might do well in and I will evaluate those. 

  After evaluation of your pictures and judging from the shade, etc. I will promptly mail you a report that will have my suggestions as to the light requirements and other improvements that you might do to your site, that would improve your chances for successfully growing ginseng, (of course, I will also tell you if your site is not suitable for ginseng growing).
