Thatís great! I believe it is hit or miss on the sand. Sounds like you got a great batch.

I'm wondering if people who have experienced the oily substance was rinsing the blasting media in old buckets that had trace cooking oil or grease in them. Hard to say how people go about things entirely and what precautions they take before diving into something.

I used food safe buckets I use just for the tanks. And rinsed the heck out of it. The metals in the sand were my main issue.

Leaching also seems odd because coal slag is inert
