Once you have some flakes or nuggets you will need to cast them into Refined Gold.
Once you add the nuggets or flakes to the gold bar cast. you must lock down the refining forge, and lock down the gold bar cast on top of the forge. Double-click the cast to cast bars.
The yield is as follows:
Small Gold Flake = 1 Gold Level
Small Gold Nugget = 2 Gold Level
Large Gold Nugget = 4 Gold Level
The level to gold bar ratio is 10:1.
