PC LOAD LETTER: My uncle worked in a gold mine. They give you your work clothes in the locker when you get in, and you change out of them at the end of the day and the company reclaims the gold dust. Not sure sure why this company is not doing exactly that. Or did he transfer the sand somehow?
Cymbal: He needs a vagina, I've heard sand is quite safe there.
StopLurkListen: You're going to have to bring a few dumptrucks full of sand to get much gold out of it. Typically a couple of grams per tonne of material processed.So it's less "he's walking home with riches" than "if you steal a penny, you're still a thief".
jso2897: A guy I knew when I was in the jewelry trade ran a production shop back in the seventies, and caught one of his polishers stealing from him. This guy would rough out the original castings, clean them up with a file and/or grinder, and do misc. stuff like pound rings round on a mandrel before they got finished further.He had long, greasy blonde hair - and all the while he was running his hands through his hair, then sticking his greasy hands in his catch tray, then back to his hair - all day long. Then he'd wash his hair out at night.Got caught because the guy he was taking the gold to knew my friend, and ratted the guy out to him.
