Thank Gavin. That’s going to take a day or three to read. Just finish The West Coast Gold Rush By Phillip May so this fits in nicely.
Thanks again.

A great book and if it was hard copy I would buy it. He does say that one troy ounce is 28 grams but that is not correct - it is 31 grams or 31.1034768 grams to be absolutely precise.
