    Found this gold dust in 3 minutes

    I live by the Arkansas river and dug out a crack in sidewalk, that is submerged when river floods. Literally took 3 minutes to collect this gold dust. It stuck to my dust pan, and I am wondering about ways to collect it. There are literally hundreds of more cracks for me to dig out. Thanks in advance

    "a crack in sidewalk, that is submerged when river floods."

    When you say "sidewalk", is that in town or something? Jogging/biking path?

    What kind of area is this and what kinds of rules do they have about such things?

    If it's allowed, would be great to take a cordless vacuum out there!

    It's a bike path that is all cracked up. I'm not sure what good a cordless vac would do because the dust is so small.

    A cordless vac would simply be a timesaver over using a dustpan. Either way, use a screwdriver, ice pick or other suitable "something" to loosen the material in the cracks, then recover that material. A vac could suck the fine material out of a crack where a brush can't reach - provided that material is first loosened.

    Gotcha. On my way there now with a dust buster. I guess I will continuously wipe the gold dust with toilet paper, place the toilet paper in a freezer bag, then burn the toilet paper when enough is accumulated

    Curious why you think that's gold reptwar1? Seems like a big leap from some color on your finger that resembles gold and setting up a "cement mixer with mercury".

    I'm hoping it is gold and you get enough to pay for the vacuum.

    Just trying to find an economical way to extract the gold dust from the sand. There is literally tons of it deposited along the Arkansas river
