    They will be liberated but it won't happen over night, yes I do cut and polish them myself. Myself and a mate dug them out the hard way, only machinery we use is a Makita electric demo hammer,(I'm getting too old for this) it was a worthwhile couple of weeks many times you don't find anything, this lot will not be treated in any way usually only treat matrix as it is pretty uninteresting in it's natural state.
