Of a variable age, the most ancient ones seem to date from the 18th century

Eleven geometric weights, two figurative weights, a box and a van.
The van (which is the name adopted by Professor NIANGORAN-BOUAH) was used for the manual separation of the gold from the sand.

The weights appear on the pictures.
