This is our Bare Bones 8 inch wide river sluice. Being only 8 inches wide makes this sluice a great option if locations you want to work in have little water flow.

Our Bare bones sluice boxes are made from one solid piece of 2mm laser cut aluminium making for an economical and light option.

Unlike our Modular sluices which entail complex bends, CNC milling and tig welding.

This variation is running the combo dream mat.


  • Micro Mat = Insane fine gold recovery you can see; lets you know when you're on the gold without the migration other ribbed mats have.
  • Cape-D (New High Low Version) fine gold recovery for heavy black sands!
  • Mini Mat has that front row gold reputation, sluice w/ confidence fine gold & nuggets are on lockdown!
