    Separating mineral microparticles can be done by difference in static charge properties. For this you need to have dry dust and a static energy generator. Exposure of the dust flow to a static charge pushes different minerals differently, and that difference may be used to refine the product. No need in amalgamation method and it's devastating on environment and subsequently ourselves toxicity!

    Why would a soldier fight people getting gold from the earth, and for whose benefits, gold belongs to anyone who finds it otherwise it is becoming absolute dictatorship and gold terrorism sponsored by governments and banks to keep its absolute monopoly over gold and deprive anyone from getting rich without paying tax and becoming slave to the financial system. The stupid part is that soldiers have been completely brainwashed that they are doing good work.
