Used the A52 today at the Swank claim in Ohio. As always caught ultra fines in the black mat, not sure of the rest haven't panned the cons. It always does a fine job on fine gold, and clears out quickly!

I use a Gold Hog Stream Sluice with the two mats and adjustment legs that come with it. It works fine and can be used optionally as a highbanker.

I have considered using a smaller sluice for smaller streams, since this sluice is 10 inches wide, there may not be enough water to run it properly even with the slow water mat. It could be used in stream or as a highbanker with a pump.

It does fine with adequate water and even can be used as a clean-up sluice with the optional power head and a 1100 gph pump.

Have read all the posts on this subject and can't believe only one response about Aurora Mining Products sluice. The Recon and Expedition sluices are hands down better than anything else on the market. I have run multiple side by side comparison tests and the Aurora sluices always capture gold the others can't. Then there is the speed at which you can run material, two gallons of cons in under a minute. The turn around for clean out is also under a minute. Small enough to fit in a backpack and under 2 pounds. Where this unit really shines is it's ability to efficiently capture minus 200. Everything larger is a give me. There is no other sluice out there using this exact patented method of recovery no matter what they claim. Find one, buy one or borrow one and give it a try. 1849 techniques have given way to the future of sluicing.

The Gold Well Vortex Drop Riffle Sluice catches what can't be caught down to beyond 400 mesh toward 800+. No other sluice can do that. Mike Pung with the Gold Cube has told me personally that it is the very best Sluice made. Runs more than any other and clean outs are quick with little to pan. It runs beach sand like no other, and crushed ore yields 99.98 % recovery when set properly.
