    Put the magnet in a plastic baggie, pull the magnet out of the bag, iron will fall into the bucket. Then put on your knee pads, forget about the "black sand". Knee pads will make you more cash.

    Some pyrite is not magnetic though. Enough to drive anyone crazy.

    Consider using a killing\lathe magnetic indicator base. You can turn the magnet on and off saving you scraping the deposits off with your hands.

      He was too wordy. I found anther site that he got the idea from and it was done wrong. I am thinking of trying this. We live near some abandon gold mines. I have seen gold flakes in the dry creek beds. +KleshGuitars

      Hi Cheryl, thanks for sharing that! I went and tried watching it but he took too long to explain it and got annoyed pretty quickly LOL. Then I tried again, and realized that even though this would work, there's a big problem when the magnets get full of black sand / other magnetic stuff. Might be too much work to be productive, so I think I'll stick to my current way of separating black sand from gold. Thanks for the help though it's much appreciated!

    in 1983 and 4 out of the Illinois river in California with a 4" dredge picked up black sands with Platinum in it as well as gold The illinois river is famous for its flake gold. there was a camp ground with a small creek out of the hill and i panned there and found over 3 oz of super fine gold and another person who saw me panned the rest of the water stream and said he found 5 oz. Went back in 2001 and all that area had been turned into a KOA camp ground no creek. out of the river for 3 months i had 200 lbs of Black sand i sold for 10 dollars a pound.

  • Gort Newton

    Just saw your adventure with Vo-Gus Prospecting. Subscriber here now! Black sand (BS) with gold is gravitationally separated with sluicing/panning. You've presumed you'll pick up gold with the magnetic BS using a magnet. You won't for the magnet reason. But, friction by the BS will carry some gold with it to the magnet. I think what you've found is a very nice method of determining whether you should go back and pan and you should, because A. you got lots of BS. B. you pulled up some little bits of gold (through friction). You quickly showed that there's gold there, probably a lot more than you got with the BS. Nice method, I must try it. That's a fast easy method to 'prove' a creek.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  15 days ago

      Thanks glad you subbed! Yeah this works good for testing a creek. I've done it other times and found even bigger flakes. Correct it's all about the (friction) or the wet sand clumping together, trapping the gold. Thanks for watching@!

  • Zack Benedict

    it's true that gold isn't magnetic, but it is magneto-inductive, meaning, if you had a small steel slide with a bit of water running down it & you stuck a magnet to the underneath of the slide, you could dump your refined sand down it & anything that is metallic will fall down the slide slower than everything that isn't. Or, better yet, you could stop any metallic bits from sliding down at all if the magnet underneath your slide was rotating, for example; a diametrically magnetized cylinder magnet attached to a small electric motor. make sure the top of your magnet is rotating in the direction of the top of your slide. this way, when the gold tries to run down with the water, it comes into contact with the flux lines emitted by the magnet & will produce it's own resisting magnetic field for a split second as it attempts to find magnetic harmony, However, if those flux lines are rapidly alternating (north, south, north, south) constantly, the gold will simply not want to go down the slide because it won't be able to achieve magnetic balance until you shut the motor off.
    After giving it some thought, when your casting your magnet into the river, your probably pushing more gold away than you are trapping in the black sand. i'd bucket the sand out, dry it, extract the iron, then do the magneto-inductive gold filtering. you'll probably get more that way.

    sugggest you make a metal box to put your magnet inside...then when you retrieve it place over your pail and pull magnet out to release the black sand....also attach some 1/2-1 inch metal wires to the metal box so they can get into deeper crevices than the flat surfaces can

  • Pirate Labs
    Pirate Labs Month ago

    Nice video. I always enjoy watching them. One idea might be to use an electromagnet, easy to make a pretty strong one using a small battery, and then when you cut the power, it will drop off all of the sand into your bucket at once. You could get a lot more sand easier and faster. PS I am glad I found this video where you explain your magnetic tool. Excellent and simple design, nice job.

    You could have a magnet that is powered by a battery so you can clean it off quicker after it is pulled from the river might save some time then you can get twice as much black sand in one sitting. Pleas let me know if this is doable I’m not an inventor ...and if you think off an electro magnet thick at a salvage yard to pick up old cars

  • Billy Snake'Hawk's Adventure's

    I remember when I was in the state of North Carolina gold prospecting way back in the early 2000s there was a magnet I used for gold recovery and I remember dropping it a few times behind this big rock that I was digging and throwing it in a bucket and I took all the magnetite and brush it off into a mason jar and I took it home and actually panned it out little by little like you said in your video and actually found little specks of flour gold and Tiny flakes as well back in 2002 to 2003 and 2004. So I know the strategy works cuz I tried it long ago with a kind of mistake I made by leaving the heavy magnetite in my black pan I was going to dump it out later and forgot and it was stocked in the truck and later I panned it out just seeing because I thought I seen gold glittering underneath some of the heavy magnetite. I thought it was pyrite but was not sure until I panned it out and realized it was actually gold. So I was puzzled until I realized it was because it was stuck to the magnetite from the magnet and this is why and how it was collected with a small amount of gold with the magnetite.

Of course Gold isn't magnetic, but the wet black sands that the gold hides in is able to trap the small flakes of gold when fishing in this way.

    I think the magnet is great for finding the Magnetic Sand, wherever you find concentrations, I would dig down to Hardpan, or as far as possible, Gold may be underneath, may be in a Paystreak. Also Mercury in the pan will attach to the Gold, then a Retort to separate, and reclaim your Mercury?

    Black sand? Isn't that iron ore? When I was a kid we would use magnets in the dry riverbeds around Riverside/San Bernardino and collect buckets of the stuff. We would sell it to a foundry (they'd give us $5 for a coffee can, in 1980 that was a lot of money to an 8 yr old)... at any rate, this is an interesting experiment. Nice work!

    Cool stuff there. But I definitely want to dredge behind you because you only got the tiny tiny gold & not much of it.
    All the big stuff is still in the creek & a bunch of black sand has been removed meaning less of it confounding my
    poor sluice box. I never prospected in Colorado but I would like to try sometime soon.
    Is it very friendly to panning & metal detecting?

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  3 months ago +1

      Colorado has certain areas open to recreational prospecting. This area is open for it, but dredging is only allowed with battery powered equipment. Unfortunately you won't find any big stuff in this area it's all float gold like I'm finding here with the magnet. The areas I'm getting the black sand may have some bigger flakes but that's about it. Never found a nugget in this area even when digging deep or crevicing. Thanks for watching!

      Very small gold. I was out today filming a crevicing video. I'm waiting until tomorrow to film the final panning when the sun's up.

    Absolutely 😎👍👍AWESOME!!! I use a magnet while dry panning, so glad to see another one who knows how to find GOLD. That was some beautiful outdoor scenery. Many thanks for making your video. Always Good Vibes & Lots of Luck for Au from Las Vegas Nevada.

    Brilliant!....And/I think: Stronger the better magnet = to attract more "complete " "clumps "/trapping higher ratio

      Yeah I think so too. I did another video with a much bigger and more powerful neodymium magnet and the results were pretty surprising. Thanks for the comment Adam I appreciate it.

    Great idea, at least for prospecting an area. Why not just test the sands and see if it's worth setting up shop.

    Holy crap man that's how I find the heavies in a river even in dry sand to better to use a thin piece of metal on ur mag so u can just pull and drop

    Yes, I have done this in Arizona many years ago ( I am 73 yrs old). I used a speaker magnet. I also suggest you crush your residual black sand and pan it again. If you want to get more technical, wash the black sand (let it sit awhile) in nitric acid. Be careful to flood flush with water to remove the nitric acid and do this outdoors. Nitric acid is dangerous stuff.

      Thanks for the comment eman. I do have a video going through the process of extracting the gold from black sand using Nitric acid and mercury. Thanks for watching!

      Thanks. I have another video explaining the process of separating gold from black sand in my Prospecting playlist, about a year ago. Thanks for watching!

    put the magnet in a plastic baggy then do that makes it easier to remove the black sand from your magnet..a dredgers idea btw

    • KleshGuitars

      Good Idea brian truax! Thanks for watching!

    SHANE, STOP SHAKING THE MAGNET! To my way of thinking, if there was a small nugget in the black sand in the river bottom, and your magnet latched on to 3/8 in of black sand trapping the nugget, your shaking and pounding the magnet is going to sift It out and free it! It's heavier AND non magnetic. Ever levitate a mouse with a magnetic field? Look THAT up! Science is freaky!

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  3 months ago

      I think you're right, but at the same time I'm pretty sure any nuggets would get trapped in the black sand. I only expected to maybe find small flakes doing this, but in the future, if I'm using a stronger magnet I'll keep this in mind. Thanks for letting me know

    I'd love to do this kind of stuff where I live. Problem is any magnet I throw in the water will probably get hung on rebar or old piping or even grab all the iron out of the clay. Gulf coast and all.
