I have been telling people for years they are throwing out their gold by panning the cons out in the river. The pan is the first process, the secondary may be a miller table, and the third might be a retort. I went down to my claim where I let another man dredge, but I instructed him to pan in a large tub and keep what he got. He relied on one of those gold wheel devices so all his cons were left in the tub, perfect for me. I got the cons out and processed them my own way and pulled out 26 grams of gold. The claim is hot no doubt, but people are not realizing all the fine gold they are losing by only taking a primary stage. The picture included is of the gold I found in his left over cons. If you want to ask me my methods please feel free to contact me. Somebody taught me, it needs to be passed along as well.
