    A word about recovery

    When working with gold, there is a lot of money tied up in the polishing dust that comes off the wheel. The average gold content in polishing dust is 3/4 to 1-1/4 ounces of gold in every pound of dust. Even the smallest shops create enough dust to make the gold well worth recovering (and refining). You should pay attention to dust collection and washout as well.
