    Earlier this spring I went to a Colorado placer site and brought back some pay dirt that i ran thru a sluce box . I tried panning, the Blue Bowl and I have a Black Magic setup and still am having issues separating the very fine flour type gold without losing it. I seem to loose the gold before the black sand. I use dishwasher drying agent and have a #45 magnet. Just can't seem to get the gold. Any suggestions without spending more money on more gadgets? Thanks.

    Is your material classified down far enough?
    I live in Michigan where we have very fine gold and I use meshes 100,150,200 to get my flour out. If your trying to get 200-300 mesh gold and have 100 mesh black sand you will lose a lot of it before the black sand is able to move. Classify classify classify

    This is what I do never panned in Colorado. Hope it helps if you try it.

    I only went down to 100 mesh. I didn't realize i should go that small. Thanks, i'll try that.

    I bought a miller table from Royal MFG. and still lose a lot of the super fine floaty stuff but i get some small stuff the blue bowl and panning just can't get. It takes a long time to process and still get black sand when snuffed up I am hopeing that will separate when i melt it down.
