2 four way switches and 1 regular switch ganged together, 3 seperate circuits. Can I clamp all the resulting EGC's together; can I split them up? The box is metal, the cables are #12 NM-B.

All equipment grounds in the box MUST be connected together.

Thats what I thought. Apprecciate it. It didnt specifically refer to seperate circuits, and I was thinking if one circuit shorted out the others might experience some sort of trouble. I read about electricity taking several paths instead of the least resistant. It made me think that several of the grounds would go live but I guess that would happen if they were isolated or not.
