What is sand mining? Sand mining is the extraction of construction material from open pits rivers and stream banks Sand is essential in the building of physical infrastructure and is an important element in the concrete that is used for construction which is why in recent decades the demand for sand has shot up due to rapid urban growth "Cleaning up" is done usually once or twice a month though in some places it is performed oftener The pavement of the sluice is gradually taken out while a small stream of water is applied to move the sand and fine gravel The amalgam is scraped up and put into iron or wooden buckets The quicksilver is then separated from the gold
