  1. Out of boredom and while cleaning up around the garage I decided to re make my pac vac using my old blower ang an old back pack weed sprayer, hope it works out better than carrying the 5 gallon bucket...already was great for wasting a couple hours.
  2. Anybody got a cheap way to recover fine gold from concentrates that can be used indoors and is about idiot proof? I found some Miller table setups on Ebay and from Martin Prospecting in South Carolina but I'd rather not fork over more than $100 for a home setup. I know a GoldCube is made for this also, but $500 is a bit much for those of us on a tight budget. One thing I did like about the Martin Prospecting Miller table is the small hole at the head of the table into which you can sweep the gold with a tiny paintbrush which eliminates the use of a snuffer bottle. A vial is screwed into the bottom of the hole to catch your clean gold. They want $250 plus with shipping for this unit. I saw a homemade unit like this on YouTube made with wood and parts from Hobby Lobby. Has anybody made one of them? Thanks. -Tom V.

  4. Klunker, On the River, Prospecting thread, you alluded to the superiority of the steel pan. Some people booed your opinion. I've used a steel pan forever because it's substantial and I hate plastic; almost every piece of plastic gear falls apart relatively quickly. But I'd like to know your reasoning for its superiority over the plastic ones. Does it retain the gold better? And I think a few other guys were curious, too. Thanks, no rush, Joel
  5. Hey Steve, Did you ever get a chance to use the rocker? I am curious about the its efficiency on fine, flat gold. Also, what does it weigh?
  6. I have a goldbuddy stallion that I use in ore.nev. deserts wouldlike to know if anyone has this d.w.? If so do you have any suggestions that may help in recovery? I have learned a few things that work for me but looking for more ideas that may help.
  7. Got a few questions here. First I have a small impact mill that takes 3/4 minus material and will crush it to 100 mesh or smaller. I am looking for something that will take 2 or 3 inch material down to 100 mesh and not break the bank. I am looking for a gas powered unit that can be run on site. I am running desert material so all of my rock is dry. I fill buckets and take the material to Oregon. I crush it then run it through a concrete mixer with just a trickle of water and some Simple Green. Then I run the concentrates through a Gold Genie which recovers a large majority of the gold. The problem is I am left with a lot of rock that is oversized, most in the 1 inch to 2 inch range. My material is coming from a pit next to Rick Watkin's first pit in Nevada. Or maybe there is a more economical way to go about this or even with fewer pieces of equipment? Any other ideas? Thank you!! Steve
  8. Besides all the beer drinking & playing up I like to make stuff , last year I wanted a hand operated thing that would concentrate down the heavies quick so I could do less panning . First photo is the proto type - Then I fixed up the bugs & changed angles plus fitted an hand mixer on the next model . Works Like this , throw a bucket of water in then the same of material , rock back & forth whilst using the blue handle to stir the stuff up so the heavies drop quick into the bottom trap . After a minute stop and collect the stuff from the trap by undoing the 2 clamps , empty & start again . When you get a bucket full of the heavies run that through so you only have one pan to do I called it the gold pram . Jack .
