Why use a Magnetic Seperator when panning for gold
Removing magnetic black sands: While gold itself is not magnetic, there are other minerals, such as magnetite and hematite, which are often found alongside gold deposits. These minerals are magnetic and can be concentrated in black sands. By using a magnetic separator, you can effectively remove these magnetic black sands from your gold-bearing material, making it easier to isolate the gold particles.
Eliminating iron contamination: In some cases, iron particles or iron-rich minerals may be present in the material you're panning. These iron contaminants can affect the purity of your gold concentrate. By passing the material through a magnetic separator, you can extract any iron particles or magnetically susceptible impurities, thereby improving the overall quality of the gold concentrate.
