    It's very hard to recover fine gold or flour gold maybe I can help with issue. Some times gold floats due to clays oils from vegetation. don't worry buy an inflatable kids pool and fill your bucket full of water and let the clays and dirty water wash your gold out of the bucket into the pool by swirling the matirieal around with your hand and tilt the bucket so that the gold washes out. then use my method in this link with a pump to recover it  http://www.goldprospectors.org/Comm...um/aft/939

    Add dish soap or dishwasher treatment (jetdry) to your water, this will help floating gold by breaking down the surface tension allowing small gold to drop.

    Yes dish soap does work a little but my post is about allow the clays to float fine gold out of your bucket into a small pool and later recovering the gold from your pool. This method is used in large scale mining operations, I just shrunk it down for us lil guys/gals.

    DO you treat it with Muriatic Acid afterwards?
