    I just recently purchased a Royal 30" recirculating sluice box and was wondering how many 5 gallon buckets of material I could run through it before needing to do a clean out. I am running some "practice" material that is the roughly 1/8" and less. Thanks for your comments.

    I have the same sluice. It will depend on your material a lot. I have been running East coast material heavy heavy with black sands so I clean up every 1/2 bucket or so.

    You will have to watch the box and make that call in the field. Once your riffles/moss/matting are loaded, then do your clean up.
