3 Replies and 572 Views Best travel sluice  572  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 605 Views California River Sluice  605  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.

6 Replies and 3085 Views Stream sluice?  3085  6 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

1 Replies and 1511 Views Building a Sluice Stand  1511  1 Started by  goldcrazy2@gmail.com Has anybody seen a good Step-By-Step 'How-To' video or article on making a stand for Tom and Perry's Clean-Up Sluice The video that comes with the sluice doesn't show how they made the pvc stand and I'm not very good at working with pvc when it comes to allowing for the extra length for the joints when you put it together. 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 ...

(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

15 Replies and 74596 Views folding sluice  74596  15 Started by  urchin_53@yahoo.com 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.

5 Replies and 1922 Views Royal miller table and Deep V groove mat.  1922  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
