7 Replies and 5975 Views Stream sluice?  5975  7 Started by  y.jaron@gmail.com Hi I’m new to running a stream sluice and was wondering if you need to worry about blowing out your box if you leave it in the water while you go for 15 mins or so to dig and classify more material. Or should I stockpile a lot of classified material ahead of time and run all at once then clean out. Does anyone have any advice Specifically I have a Keene A52. Thanks

3 Replies and 1446 Views Setting up stream sluice  1446  3 Started by  rockyegner@hotmail.com This past weekend I setup my GH mini stream sluice for the first time in an stream area with flat manageable water flow. What I discovered when sloping the sluice to move material at suggested 1' per foot, the end of the sluice is underwater about 4' to 6' up the sluice. The end of my sluice remaining underwater while I run material won't be an issue with loosing gold will it I do make a hole underwater for the tailings to drop in to. Newbie running first sluice ever. As I think on it any angl...

0 Replies and 806 Views Gold Hog Mini Stream Sluice Header Box  806  0 Started by  rockyegner@hotmail.com I bought the GH mini stream sluice box w/legs. Didn't buy the piglet because I didn't care for the use and fit it on the 10' flare for the mini sluice. I know Doc designed the setup for reverse washing but almost all videos of everyone using it turns the piglet around so water flows down the sluice. I'm search a header to fit better and the dream mat 10' header (maybe 8') box looks perfect for the 10' flare. Has anyone tried this combination yet

8 Replies and 8962 Views Pump & Battery Recommendation for Raptor Flare 2.0 Highbanker  8962  8 Started by  PlantOperatorAaronSanchez@Outlook.com I have never used a sluice before, but after I found out I don't have to classify and I could just shovel and pour; I was very interested in that time saving gold hogging concept!

7 Replies and 8767 Views Royal miller table and Deep V groove mat.  8767  7 Started by  33oneworld@gmail.com I run a homemade double sluice with deep groove and shallow groove mats. I have found alot of dust and specks. Seems to be easier to pan and find gold the sluice is at 4 degrees with gentle water flow but clean outs not so good. I repanned some and still gold not being caught by the sluice. So i ordered the Royal table. Should i just bite the bullet and get gold hog mats Any thoughts or experience on water tables and mats Thank you Andy

3 Replies and 3084 Views Empty mats  3084  3 Started by  1972tspringston@gmail.com How many gph of water do you need to catch flour gold with a 10' wide sluice with a vortex type mat. I've tried 5-7° with terrible results. I was told I need to run it between 11° -17° but that just seems way to steep for such microscopic gold to have time to drop out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

3 Replies and 4068 Views Best travel sluice  4068  3 Started by  totalappliance@frontier.com Hello everyone, I'm a new member with some panning experience but would like to speed up my concentrate making. I travel frequently around the US with my job, almost always on a plane. So I'm looking for a sluice that I can pack in my bag so I can be more productive with the time I have available. I plan on finish panning at home but would like to get a higher production.

2 Replies and 4223 Views California River Sluice  4223  2 Started by  waugh1198@gmail.com Just picked up one of these, and wondering on initial setup, as to water depth and how much drop on a 40' box. I realize that to some extent water depth is dependent on speed of flow, and how much drop to have material make the trip through. Going to give it a try next time I'm out.

The videos I've seen so far are either poorly made or don't explain what the are doing clearly enough, or the articles and drawings don't make sense. I could also use ...
