This is by far the easiest method we know of for recovering the very fine gold from your pan. With water in the pan, squeeze the bottle and then release it. The vacuum sucks up the gold. In fact, our latest Proline snuffer bottle has gone high-tech by utilizing a new one-piece spout/baffle assembly! The spout is tapered internally to help keep larger gold from lodging itself inside the tube. The baffle seals to the top of the bottle which prevents gold from becoming trapped where the spout exits the cap. This eliminates the potential for gold loss.
