How much gold did we get with this .. MAGNET!?

A large gold mining operation in the Quesnel area of British Columbia, run by my buddy Tyler, uses a magnet in their clean up sluice to prevent the magnetic black sands from plugging the sluice. Tyler gave me a sample of these black sands removed with the magnet to see how much gold got caught up with the black sands. Check out these results. And as a side note, Tyler usually goes through these black sands to recover the gold.

It is not lost. And NO! gold is not magnetic.

  1. Beauty. Good day, eh! I’m Always glad to see another one of your great videos. This is some very good info for newbies like myself. Enjoy that beautiful snow in the Great White North. I wish we had more down here. Thanks again for this one.

  2. I’m wondering if it’d be possible to add another hopper to that with a narrower opening which maybe taps into the motor to shake it so you don’t have to constantly slowly feed small scoop after small scoop..

  3. Well done, you’re re-invented the CleanGold sluice system.

    That one uses a line of magnets to trap black sand, which then is used to trap gold. It does this astonishingly well, even better than the old mercury amalgamation method and is being touted as a way to stop people using mercury quite so much.

  4. Understand, you like your gear-micro…just stop rubbing them while you record, please.
    Had to cut 2 minutes in, stop rubbing your mic.

  5. Thank you for your videos I’ve been doing metal detecting for years now and I’ve recently moved to Scotland where there is hundreds of rivers by watching your videos I’ve decided to take up gold panning thanks for the tips 😊

  6. You could place lids on the jars and drill out the appropriate size hole so that material does not spill out.
