  1. Hi forum, hopefully yaal are keeping safe.Im looking for the following mat.Its been discontinued but im gonna try anyways.I need 2 pieces and hopefully some great gold prospector out there can help me out. Mat dimensions are 8" wide 20,5" long Im looking for exactly this mat and not the blue 10" version,we dont want to cut it down. Can anyone help Many thanks Highlandhowler
  2. I know it still comes down to getting the old pan out but I was wondering if any of you ever used the above Trommel? I know it’s been around a long time and I’ve seen videos but I want to hear from someone not selling. I was thinking maybe of running the material out of my drywasher. Any and all opinions appreciated. Chuck
  3. I can't figure out a reliable way to re-mount this pick handle. This is a small pick (USA quarter on left, Australia 1943 penny on right, for scale). You can see what I tried -- wooden wedge in the long direction and steel wedge in the short direction. This didn't hold worth a nickel. Given that this design has been in use for well over a century there must be a solution. I can't be the first person to have this issue. (I looked online without success.) Any advice is appreciated.
  4. So we did end up pulling that old 8" out of the bush from an old mining camp (previous post). We're going to go through the whole thing and get it back up and running. Main question I have is about sluice box design. I've read "The Clarkson Study" a few times over the years and just re-read it. Did a bunch of googling, youtubing and searching forums, but its hard to come up with great information about sluice box design for a larger dredge like this. I like Keene's sump system for fine gold but I wont be building that. For the most part I'm going to use this on our claims that are on a larger
  5. Well....not exactly new, but new to me. My wife was thrift shopping yesterday and picked me up an old used Estwing 12" steel gold pan as a surprise gift. I was happy that she recognized it and bought it for me and I think its pretty a cool pan. I normally use a green plastic pan but I think it will be cool to swirl a metal pan. She wants to see it in action. She "suggested" I go pour some gold into some yard dirt and pan it out and see how I liked it. I "suggested" that we go out Sunday morning to a local spot and see how it works on fresh gold. She then suggested we w
  6. Super Cool! If it can handle the punishment of Hardcore Diggers? Enjoy! Cheers, Ig

  8. Have you ever wished for a smaller classifier that fits your small pan for remote, hiking and sampling purposes? Here’s something that may work at least until any manufacturer decides that small pans deserve matching classifiers, too. 1. Select a pan that nests inside the one you want to use. 2. Download and print a steel perforating template. 3. Use some water soluble glue to affix the template to the bottom of your extra pan. 4. Once the glue is dry, drill small pilot holes through the center of each circle on the template. I used a 3/32 inch for the pilot hole. 5.
  9. Hi All. Im totally new to all this fun and looking for a little advice....I hope you'll bear with me! I recently decided to build a little sluice for fun in and around the waterways of the UK. having researched it seems the vortex dream mat gets a lot of good press but the price and availability for me in the uk (for what might be only a passing fad - at the moment ) is too steep. I am lucky to have access to 3d modelling software and mould making erquipment and thought Id give making one a go. Im reaching out to see If anyone has one on this forum and if they could confirm a few dimensions?
  10. Does anybody know if its possible to use a solar cell panel to run a small electric bilge pump for a small highbanker? Will it have to be in direct sunlight ? Mine is a Johnson 2200 gph bilge pump that pulls 8 amps at 12 volts What size panel will I need and what do they cost? Can I run the output straight to the water pump or do I need a controller thing? Or can I use a panel to recharge my 12 volt ,15 amp gel cell and how long will it take? Thanks. -Tom V.
  11. I figured this forum is busy and a great place to throw this out. It sells for $99.00, and the science behind it sounds reasonable. Screening your material and controlling the water flow should allow the user to tweak it up to a functional level. It's been out for about 5 years, yet has few videos, many good comments, but some not so good ones. I only have lots of flour gold where I live, and am looking for an affordable' simple tool to reduce my concentrates at the end of my season, to then run them through a second time, then through my miller table. Below is a link to the product:
  12. Keene have released a new sluice box they claim is the worlds best, it looks nice to me. http://www.keeneeng.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=A52S Product Details Our Super Sluice Box is the first sluice that allows you to dump unclassified material through the box at much higher volumes than ever thought possible while still retaining fine gold! Not only does this sluice a eat material like no other, it is the easiest and fastest sluice to set up in the world. The performance of this sluice box is "by far superior to anything on the market” W
  13. Since we cannot get out into the field to prospect properly right now, figured we'd share with you a piece of equipment we use for testing in our garage and also in the field for hard to get to places. Its great for hiking in, testing several locations and then coming back with larger equipment!!Hope everyone is well, stay safe!
  14. Along with working on the house this winter, I finally got around to drawing-up, and building a new driver for my shaker table. I really like Wilfley's designs, and wanted my driver to have the same adjustments as his. Working about 4 hours/day, it took me about 2 months to get it drawn and built, along with a few modifications that arose during the build. Finally finished yesterday, and made a video. I'm still polishing up the plans, and will probably have to disassemble it to take pics for the build instructions etc. I'll be selling the plans and, instructions at some point this spring,
  15. OK, so this time around, I have made things a LOT easier to work with, and expandability is key here. Sure, it's not huge, but for a portable system, this should work great. The key thing here is that I wanted a system that could be printed with little to no waste material, and yet have the structure and strength to hold up for a long time. This is what I have come up with so far. This will likely be my last design for this version. I'm only tweaking a few dimensions here, as well as making new modules that can be added to it. Features: Modules are 276mm long by 104m
  16. Well, as far as I can tell, it's the smallest FUNCTIONAL sluice box. This isn't a cute scale model to look like a neat paperweight. This thing actually WORKS! Let me know what you think! This has taken me well over 4 months to develop past where you saw it last time. I still have a few minor tweaks I want to do to it, but all in good time. As long as you can spoon feed it small enough material, this will work for you. I guess this would be more suitable for processing concentrates, but it should still be a hefty worker! Features: * Self-contained power (4x AA
  17. Hey Guys, One day I didn;t have my pan so I used my shovel to pan, and it worked quite good. Check out the video and subscribe if you want more gold videos:
  18. I was just curious about the history of gold mining contraptions? How long have gold pans been in use?Who invented them? What did the Romans and other ancient people use to get gold? -Tom
  19. I'm not much of a sluicer. I'd rater be looking for nuggets with my detector. I like gold I can pick up with my fingers lol. My wife bought a small Keene sluice box several years ago and we set up a recirculating system at home where we could run some dirt at our leisure just for fun. I never really liked my home made set up. Although it worked it was slow..It was like a mini high banker made with stuff I got at the local hardware store. I was wanting something more efficient. In my search I found Gold Fox USA. There is also an Australian version that is the same company with a dealer who dis
  20. This has a different type coil, weight is no problem. I need one.pdf
  21. Do we have any beach miners here? I'm in Oregon and do a bit of sand sifting. The Oregon laws for the beach include No Power equipment so you have to ground sluice or have a recirculator above the high tide line or above the grass line. Kind of a pain but doable. Anyway I have a thread going over at TreasureNet that is a little rambling but it will show ya what kind of equipment I use and some of the results.... Nope nothing like the Nome beaches but it gets me off the couch and I manage to eek out a little color. So here's a link to the thread, hope you find some humor in it as
  22. The brand name on this is " His Way Corporation" it has a belt that rotates tords the water outlet, its a self contained unit.. Have any of you old timers seen or used one of these and maybe shed some light on how it works...
  23. I took a picture of my collection of crevice suckers for the Classifieds and figured it would make a good photo to post here for people to see a few designs old and new.
  24. Last night I read a very interesting (IMO) article by Chris Ralph in the June, 2019 issue of the ICMJ (https://www.icmj.com/) titled "How Long Does It Take to Find and Recover an Ounce of Gold". There are a lot of caveats Chris lists, which makes it dangerous for me to summarize what was written. Further, there is a fine line between showing results from a magazine/journal which needs money to stay afloat and requiring interested parties to simply pay for a subscription. IMO, anyone halfway serious about searching for native gold (and there's more there than just gold) should be a subscribe
  25. Some buddies of mine that were dredging down streem from me last year let me use there letrap to do a cleanup from my 6, and man it worked great! Not a spec in the taillings and ive tested several other sluices and has found a disapointing amount in the tailings of others. I been keeping a eye out and have only seen one online shop have 2 in stock. Of course i didnt have the money to blow at the time and they both sold quick. Are they discobtinued?
