Can you devise a method to separate salt from a mixture of Salt and Sulfur?

Okay, it is sort of simple. Just get a baggy, and a stick magnet. Then hold your magnet in the corner of the bag. Then, while keeping the magnet in the corner, pick up the bag and move it around the mixture of salt and sulfur. Some of the sulfur will stick to the magnet. Then, once you got as much sulfur as you could to stick to the magnet, lift up the baggy keeping the magnet in the corner of it with the sulfur sticking to it, and bring it to another clean surface. Then, lift the magnet from the corner of the baggy. The sulfur will fall right off into a little pile. Repeat these steps until there is no more sulfur sticking to magnet. Hope this helps.
