The Explorer Highbanker Series is a true highbanker with hopper, sluice, and powered water supply. All Explorer models feature the Prospectors Choice Alluvial Sluice design for superior gold recovery by lessening of water pressure. The Explorer series has ribbed assay matting at the head of the sluice with a secondary classifier for -1/8" material. This is followed by steel riffles welded to expanded metal, all over ribbed carpeting. The result is a gold capturing machine that will trap even the tiniest flakes. The Tsunami pump can be used from a river source or as a recirculating pump in an enclosed catch basin.
The Explorer is made of 16 gauge 5052 aluminum for long life and corrosion resistance. The riffles and expanded metal are welded steel and easily removed for cleanup operations. Legs are made from 18 gauge cold rolled 5/8″ square tubing machined with counter facing thru holes spaced 1″ apart. By turning a leg 90 degrees this allows independent adjustment to each leg by 1/2″ increments. By utilizing “keeper pins” they have eliminated the need for tools, and removed the risk of stripping threads or loosing nuts and bolts altogether.
All Explorer models come with sluice and hopper section, 4’ of 3/4” hose, Tsunami pump with 36” wire, bucket hanger, legs/clips, and hose clamps. Select the model for you from the drop down menu.
