5 Replies and 467 Views Royal miller table and Deep V groove mat.  467  5 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

5 Replies and 832 Views Stream sluice?  832  5 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

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 ...

Any ideas on how to stop the leak I don’t want to make this permanent; I still want to use it as my stream sluice box. I would share pictures, but I don't know how to do that. Pete

1 Replies and 805 Views We have concentrates. We just need someone who can extract the gold  805  1 Started by  david@ucvcfunding.com My boss is part owner of a pretty famous gold mine and because of this we have about 50k tons of concentrate and hard rock ore left over from the exploration stage of his project. This particular ore is known to have high concentrations of gold, silver and other PGM's, but one of the issues we're having is that normal fire assays are not picking up all the gold. Much of the gold is being washed away. We need a master assayer that can extract hard to get gold through a chemical or atomic procedur...

77 Replies and 89596 Views What sluice do you use?  89596  77 Started by  loki258
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 4 )
If you are like me you probably have more than a single sluice... I have Angus MacKirks, Bazooka's, Keene's, and a myriad of homebuilt. After all said and done for varying conditions it seems like I always fall back to the keene a52... don't know why but I do... I guess its my favorite. I like the A.M.'s but I don't like that water changes can easily cause it to blow out...   What's your favorite

0 Replies and 538 Views Tee Dee Ez Sluice (Looking for pump recommendations)  538  0 Started by  matthew.n.edwards.2@gmail.com Hello everyone, I am looking for a pump that might be good for a recirculating system using a small TeeDee Ez Sluice. It measures approximately 7x2.5x24 and does have a flair. I figured that since it is a small sluice it may do well with a small pump which will allow me to either carry a smaller battery or run for longer periods of time on a larger battery.   Thanks in advance, Matt

14 Replies and 70223 Views folding sluice  70223  14 Started by  urchin Are any of the folding sluice boxes any good I've heard of them folding on you when you don't want them to and that they can leak fine gold at the joints even if the overlap is the first section fitting into the next and so forth. Has anyone tried, or is currently using, one that can shed some light on the subject for me.

13 Replies and 60997 Views Is Bazooka dead? Sluice suggestions?  60997  13 Started by  Woffie I was wondering if anyone heard anything about the company that made the Bazooka gold trap sluices. I was just trying to see how much a bigger version would cost when I noticed their Facebook has not been used in about 2 years, their website has been down for 'maintenance' and there is nothing for sale on eBay. Kind of sucks since my wife designed a single slip on adapter to make it a power sluice. Needed a bigger one for flow testing. If they are gone could anyone suggest, in their opi...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Been watching sluicing and dredging videos on youtube. The Rogue river videos are unbelievable... but my question is about Bazooka sluices. It seems they are more efficient time-wise than other sluices, altho' I've seen some excellent recovery in the Rogue River Videos using the Le Trap plastic sluice. I like the idea of not having to classify material using the bazookas. Everything is fast and simple with them and you get more gold recovery due to the fact you can run 10 times the materia...
