There is a very easy and very inexpensive way to recover ALL
your gold from wastewater (generated by tumbling, washout,
ultrasonic cleaners, pickle, you name it). I’m referring
toWastewater Treatment Powder which is with an inert chemical
powder that you stir into the wastewater. Within seconds it
bonds with the gold (actually with ALL the metal in the water).
In fact Wastewater Treatment Powder bonds with ALL the dirt and
particulate, no matter how tiny, in the water leaving behind
clean reusable water. (It will leave unspent soap behind as
well - so if you batch treat the water, you can reuse it. For
example, if you treat just tumbling effluent , you can recover
all the gold leaving behind clean water with unspent soap in it
so you can reuse it for the next tumbling run.)
After a couple minutes of stirring, all your gold and other
metal is bonded with the powder and the powder sinks to the
bottom of the container. Pour off the clean water and sediment
thru a coffee filter. Allow the sediment to dry in the coffee
filter. It is specially formulated to take only minutes to dry
to a solid brick which you can then easily ship to your refiner.
Best of all, the powder is very inexpensive. There are 3 types
of powder depending on what type of wastewater you are treating,
but a pound is about $12.00 and treats 100 gallons of
If you are treating small amounts of wastewater, you can do
everything manually but if you are treating more than a few
gallons a day, there are treatment tanks with automatic stirring
and filtering functions to make the whole process easy and fast.
There are a variety of sizes to these tanks as well depending
on whether you want to treat say 10 gallons at a time to 30 to
hundreds of gallons at a time.
And yes, Gesswein carries both the powders and the treatment
tanks. If you would like additional please give me

answer any questions you may have.
