Taking Hints And Indications Straight From Mother Earth Herself.
The difference with our sluice designs and 98% of sluice boxes, is that they are built straight. There is no flow difference from the start to the finish. The Water’s velocity is the same from head to tail. If we watch nature, she will vary a stream or river in many ways from rapids to waterfalls, bends, wide parts in the stream, back eddies, whirlpools and so on. Taken directly from mother nature is the concept of an Alluvial Fan, or Plain. The dropping from suspension of heavier materials could not be more verified.
We have focused on the entire length of the sluice box being one big capture element.This is possible by the way we approach the water flow through our sluice box. Most sluice boxes have straight sides. Streams have many twists, turns, drop offs and dips. Whenever gold accumulates in a river, it is at a point where the water flow changes from fast to slow. We use this principal in our sluice box.
Uses New Gold Recovery Technology That Is Old School For Mother Nature.
We have noticed that a lot of other gold recovery methods offered by others filter and work the gold bearing gravel to death. Using buckets, screens and a variety of interesting methods to finally reach your goal - gold! If this is what you like to do, stop, don't buy this sluice box design. We designed the Alluvial Sluice for high production. You will recover fine gold and nuggets...Quickly! This is what this sluice box was designed to do.
By far the most popular gold recovery technique is for fine gold. It's not that we don't want gold nuggets, it's more a matter of a lot of the easy gold has already been prospected or mined. There is a lot of fine gold out there in streams, rivers, beaches and even deserts. Recovery has always been a problem. Most standard sluice boxes barely touch the stuff, often times you lose more fine gold out of your sluice box than you recover. The heart of this fine gold recovery sluice box is in it's continuous capture system. We increase the gold recovery efficiency by varying the water pressure throughout the sluice. As we change from a fast stream pressure in the box to a slow one, more fine particles of gold drop out. The Alluvial Sluice Box continuously keeps getting wider as it goes along, thus decreasing water pressure.
The Sluice Or Trough Of These Are Made From 5052 16 Gauge (1/16’) Aluminum. It Has A High Fatigue Strength, Excellent Corrosion Resistance, Perfect For Marine Atmospheres. The Header Box, Or Cap Contains The Water Delivery System. Shallow Tapered Sides Make It Access Easy. Standard Hose Connections Make It Simple to Hook Up To Garden Hose Or 12 Volt Pump.We Are Not A Huge Manufacturing Shop, We Do Not Stamp Out Hundreds Of These An Hour. Each Is Handmade. We Started By Trying To Improve Our Methods Of Extracting The Gold From Our Concentrates. After About The 10th Generation Of Sluice, We Settled On This Design. When We Broke This Out At Camp The First Night Of Our Last Outing, We Were Swamped With Onlookers And Curiosity Seekers.
Not All Sluices Are Created The Same.
The Alluvial Sluice Allows For,
Fast waste flush of sands and gravels.
Very high retention of all heavier minerals
Variable flow adjustment for fast and slow water ways.
Water stop feature for clean up or a quick check of current gold levels in the sluice.
Coarse gold and / or gold particles are trapped in the lower flow zones.
Fine gold recovery is increased by changing flow rate inside the sluice box
