Finally, a clean up sluice that is not a plastic gutter! Now you can process more material in less time than you can with a gold pan. The Prospectors Choice 19A3 Alluvial Sluice Box is not a concentrator, this truly is a clean-up sluice for your concentrates. It is made to handle concentrates of 20 - 30 mesh or smaller.
The alluvial sluice box takes advantage of a continuous slowing of water current, dropping more gold. The Alluvial effect creates a continuously lowering water pressure zone, this allows gold of different sizes and weights to drop out of suspension at different intervals. There are no riffles to overload, this sluice box works by a constant capture system. Standard riffles, even Hungarian designed riffles, catch gold only at specific spots. Prospectors Choice has focused on the entire length of the sluice box being one big capture element.
The 19A3 is built of lightweight, rugged premium-grade aluminum. It does not use carpet, expanded metal, or miner’s moss that requires cleaning. Recovery is fast and easy after the material is run. The black background shows high-contrast material such as gold very well. The angle, pitch, and water flow determines the speed at which the matting cleans itself. The result is superior recovery. The tapered, widening sides, allow for easy access with snuffer bottle.
The 19A3 is compact, lightweight, and recirculates with the aid of a standard 5 gallon bucket. It measures 21″ x 9″ x 2" and weighs less than 4 pounds. A Tsunami pump with hanger and wire, and all necessary hardware is included. You will recover fine gold and nuggets…quickly.
