Recovery Of Fine Processed Gold Dumped As Waste In The River
Finished gold, copper & silver fine products are dumped on a daily basis into the river system (about 25-30% as waste slurry) in the Ok Tedi River system, South Pacific Island Nation of Papua New Guinea.
If someone out there has any idea of how I can be able to recover the waste material in a small scale project can write to this column.

Hi, Matthew. One thing is for sure: the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. And what it says to you is that you would be far better off contracting to take the waste from these dumpers before they pour it into the river than to wait until the waste is mixed into the river's contents.
