2 Replies and 2706 Views First Riffle Clogs on Sluice  2706  2 Started by I recently got a sluice box; it is my first time using one. For reference, I am using the Royal Manufacturing 30-inch compact sluice and classifying it down to 1/4 an inch. For some reason, the first riffle of my sluice box keeps clogging up while the rest of the riffles perform and act exactly as they should. When I was running it the other day I figured the other riffles would catch the gold even though the first riffle was clogged (they did) so I didn't mess around with it. But I would like t...

2 Replies and 2527 Views 3in Dryland dredge nozzle question  2527  2 Started by I'm new to dredging. Just bough a 3in dryland dredge nozzle from GBE Mandrel. When I run it in my highbanker with the keene pump (2in) supplying it, it blows out the nose of the nozzle. I'm wondering if it is a problem with the nozzle, or perhaps my highbanker being higher than the nozzle is the issue. (~3feet ish) I bring up the possibility of it being the gun, because when I look inside the gun at the jet itsself, its necked down to maybe 1/2' -3/4' max... And would assume it needed to be b...
