Homemade Shaker Table for Gold Recovery

This is an article that is very professorial in nature. It thoroughly covers the building and results of a shaker table used in the Philippines. This link is to a PDF written by the British Geological Survey. As stated in the material, their "main purpose was to provide plans for an acceptable table for small scale gold miners so that they might mitigate mining related mercury pollution hazards". How? "By providing improved methods for gold recovery for small scale miners to replace mercury amalgamation."
