Introducing our Modular Gold Sluice Series
Being modular means you can get started with prospecting with a sluice relatively cheaply while having room and option to grow as does your interest in Gold Prospecting.
Each Sluice has a removable Flare that is designed to channel water into your sluice and offers a slick plate area to dump gold bearing material onto when prospecting.
There are a few variations in this range and they are categorized by the width of the recovery system in the sluice. This is called Vortex Dream mat and is currently one of the most efficient gold recovery matting systems in the world.
Dream mat for this sluice range comes in 8, 10 and 12 inch wide lengths so when referring to different size sluices this is what we are referring to.
The actual lengths of these three sluices vary slightly due to the flare variation and the 10 and 12 inch modular flares fit inside the sluice when broken down. Without the flare all three sluice channels are 38 inches long.
Assembled Sluice Lengths are as follows:
- 8 inch Modular sluice - 48 inch
- 10 inch Modular sluice - 45.5 inch
- 12 inch Modular sluice - 45.5 inch
What comes standard:
This ripper little sluice is equipped with a removable flair header for ease of packing and storage, CNC slotted for easy removal of the sluice mat.
4 x Stainless steel bolts nylon washers and wing nuts
1 x Applicable size dream mat
Modular Sluice box Options:
Each sluice is CNC slotted from the start to accommodate a range of accessories as can be seen here at sluice box accessories . Your flare can be removed to accommodate a header box, the walls have hold placement for self supportive fully adjustable leg kit.
There are options for the header box as well, you can remove the rear baffle and add a header flare kit which opens up your feed area and allows for a spray bar conversion.
Why convert to a spray bar?
When converting from a river sluice to a power sluice we have added water so we are no longer relying on sufficient flow in a stream, we can take this one step further and add pressure to our feeder box which aids in liberating gold from dirt and gravels. With better cleaning we can see better recovery especially when working clay's.
There's also an option to add a sluice classification tray which if you've added all the above accessories you have converted your river sluice into a fully functional forward classifying highbanker.
The tray also works in a river sluice without a head box allowing you to better work your material before exposing to the recovery system.
Running pumps to deliver water you want to run a minimum 3000 GPH for the 8 inch version, 3700 GPH for the 10 inch version and 4700 GPH for the 12 inch version.
