    Clean Up

    Cleaning some black sand with the blue bowl and a little ball of mercury to help . Then I clean the gold out of the mercury with Nitric Acid mostly flour gold a lot of steps but great recovery . The little bottle is like grey mud its loaded with gold . All mercury recovered from the south fork of the American river . I also use a sniffer but the mercury picks up the flour gold and leaves the dirt behind . All back yard gold Kelsey California .

    Nice! When you say the mercury was recovered from the river...does it show up in your pan?

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.
