With no great ease! Problematically, aluminum is not magnetic so there goes the easy option.

To extract aluminum from ore or in prohibitively small quantities, from might be a smart idea to take the soil sample and heat it to a high temperature - burning the organic matter and liquidising the aluminum for easier collection.

The problem here is, you would end up with aluminum oxide. Then, massive amounts of electricity is sent through the aluminum oxide to separate the oxygen molecules. What remains is a powder that is grittier than baby powder, almost with a texture of regular table salt.
