This was a tough task and it required really fast speed and perfect gold recovery, with 210 gold panners competing to advance.
Tabling and jigging are two relatively inexpensive methods for recovering the “free particle values” from the noble metal ores. However, not all ores contain their values as free particles. In fact, many ores contain appreciable amounts of “metallic salts” that readily dissolve in one’s system water and continue to migrate right along with this water.
