    I found a decent amount of fine gold caught up in sand in a stream. I just got a blue bowl but cannot get the gold to settle properly. It keeps going over the edge of the center hole. My partner made a jig out of pvc but still needs work on getting it to work good. What is the best way to refine the fine gold out of the river sand? Help is appreciated....thank you much. Michael

    See the fine gold thread in the Ask Kevin page.

    IMO, a blue bowl will blow powder gold right on out.

    Classify clear down to 100 mesh, and pan. The closer in size the material is in the pan, the easier it is to recover.

    Miller table is probably the best bet for the weekend prospector.

    HI, I have just rejoined. Yes the miller table is a good idea to collect powder gold. But did you know that gold is Hydrophobic . so there are secrets that are not on the books I collect powder quite easy . please let me know the general area where you get this material I am in Palm Springs area maybe we can be of mutual benefit .

    Hi, You may have already found the information you are looking for, but for anyone who is still having trouble with the blue bowl, go to the prospecting channel website (prospectingchannel.com) and look for episode 15 in the programs section. Rob Goreham has a really good tutorial for processing concentrates that includes using the blue bowl. There is a link next to it where you can click to watch for free.
