#2, If you brush your teeth with a "Sonicare" battery operated
toothbrush.....save the (2) magnets that drive the brush head when you replace it. These are very small but Super strong magnets....you can easily separate them from the brush head with a sideways twist. Use your new magnets to remove black sands from your gold.
#3, In & around hills of shale rock, carry a canvas bucket & long handled, digging tool. Scoop out clay or soil trapped between pieces of shale, place scooped out clay or shale into bucket & carry pail to water source & pan the bucket. Shale rock cliffs & steep hillsides act as a natural sluice box & trap gold over the years as rain water wears down the hills. Submitted by B. Babson Duvall, WA.
