Now in a new location where the pump and gear being used is different, Chinese pumps and 5" PVC Piping, They are also using the incredibly inefficient wooden sluice boxes, set on far, far too great and angle and with water speed that just washes the gold away, There is little point to doing the work if you are just going to wash it away!
Thousands of Indonesians risk their lives to prospect for gold in makeshift mine shafts in the jungle of West Java. As well as risking their own safety when their cramped mine collapses, the locals pollute the environment with mercury and cyanide.
This is a private homemade documentary to bring a little bit awareness to this topic, because if the situation will be left as it is, another paradise will be lost.

http://www.TravelsWithSheila.com A roadside stop to watch locals with "gold fever." Lombok is rich in gold, copper, silver and other ores creating a new wild west atmosphere. Find your secret lode. Haul back bags of rocks. Crush in the family tumblers and begin swirling (or what I refer to as "gold panning") in a mixture of water and mercury! They seem to disregard the carcinogenic properties of mercury possibly thinking the new riches are more important than future mercury poisoning. But what about all that mercury leaching into the groundwater? It was interesting to watch though...
Read accompanying article at New Mandala: asiapacific.anu.edu.au/newmandala/2015/07/16/the-gold-farmers/ UC Berkeley's Prof Nancy Lee Peluso has been researching natural resources politics in Indonesia since 1979. In these photographs she documents the searching for gold in unlicensed mines in West Kalimantan province. Dangerous, illegal, and environmentally destructive, smallholder mining nevertheless offers a shot at prosperity for marginalised rural people.

Poor people in Indonesia have been flocking to the island of Lombok, where they are finding gold, and it is transforming their lives. They are breaking the law but some have been able to earn more money in a day than they had in a year as farmers or labourers. Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen discovers that there are serious risks to the Lombok gold rush.
SEARCHING, EXPLORE & Mining. When, sometime i try to suggest here the specific kind of areas. Where can, may interest and might find gold.
A bunch of first take video's showing the type of sluice box and its components being used in Indonesia, Unfortunately through the wind and an inexperienced video operator and a fish bone stuck in my neck the vids weren't what they should have been. This is my first small-scale mining foray into Indonesia and I have another Educational video to publish and there will be more as we progress through the country. Cheers Dean,
My father, IJsbrand Rogge, explored Borneo (Kalimantan) in 1915 in the interior behind Pontianak for diamond and goldfields. He befriended local dignitaries, lodged an expedition and found a number of mines. Finally he took coconut shells of diamonds home to his house in Buitenzorg = Bogor.
