While I may have issues with some of his business practices regarding his pay to detect operation and the authenticity of it, or the way he portrays prospectors as hillbillys who run around the gold fields waving guns at people and shooting suspected poachers there is no doubt, this has to be the best video I've ever seen on this topic, great instruction, fantastic camera work... credit where credit is due. I’d dare say in my opinion this is Jeff’s most professional video, no stupid accent, no making prospectors look like idiots, no waving guns around like they’re toys, just good info. Well done Jeff!

My personal feelings are, life’s too short and the recovery too small to mess with mercury.
