Well, finally got back out on the river for a little 'hard fun'...  Been 18 days without a gold prospecting 'fix' to speak.  We had a HUGE snow dump on the 17th..........anywhere from 1 to almost 3 feet in spots of wet, heavy Springtime snow.  Luckily, after diggin' out the weather warmed up, got sunny for the most part, and in the last week most of it here at the lower elevations has melted off, melted into the ground. Not surprisingly, the ...

Well, with the Arkansas River still flooding away.........on its way down slowly...........but still running over 1,200 CFS at the Granite gauge..........Cache Creek is the only game in town...

I arrived about 7AM, with only 1 other truck in the parking lot, with 2 guys unlo...

3 Replies and 6748 Views DIY Roll up sluice  6748  3 Started by  Katra12 A bit ago, I'd considered having some simple sluices created out of silicone so they could be rolled up and packed in to an area easily. Well, as always, someone else came up with a similar idea first but that's ok. This one is easier and even tho' this guy is selling them, it looks to me like a slit open corrugated plastic culvert so easy to DIY: Not a bad idea at all and some riffled matting could be added to a section of it wit...

19 Replies and 9611 Views Maybe New Sluice Box??  9611  19 Started by My son put this together in the shop where he works.  Could be the making of a good sluice box.  Need to make a spray bar, put in some carpet, expanded metal and some riffles.  A pump and some hose.  Also need to make some kind of stand.  It can be picked up with one hand and carried as it is.  The top part can be taken off.  It has expanded metal in it for classifying.  Any input on putting the rest together would be helpful.  Thanks
