Thanks for reminding me. I have a 5 gallon bucket of concentrates from last years sluicing and dry washing that needs to be ran through the mini sluice and wheel. John

Good advice John...a mining partner of mine did that last year after the summers work....

He found quite a bit of small gold from some spilled cons after panning it out. BONUS! :thumbsupanim

Way to go... gold is gold. You know "leftovers" are always best. Food or gold!!

I once found two 55 gallon drums of concentrates left over by some dredgers. They looked like they had been there some time. Maybe a year or two.

So, I took a sample pan. Some gold and lots of mercury.

I rigged up a ramp and winched the barrels into my truck. What a load!! (Lots of blacksand!!)

Over the winter I ran them over my RP4 table. Several ounces of gold and a couple pounds of mercury.

I figure that maybe they had been run thru a wheel already.

My bud Rich in Mt.Shasta had a few barrels,3, of leftovers from his wheel and his wife wanted it "off the property" so we ran it through my little 4" over/under dredge and got quite a few ozs but so long ago I've forgot the tally BUT great haul for sure-John
