The Prospectors Choice Maverick Highbankers are built incorporating their revolutionary alluvial sluice design. This mimics nature by taking advantage of a continuous slowing of the water current, causing more gold to deposit out, increasing your efficiency. The Alluvial effect creates a continuously lowering water pressure zone, allowing gold of different sizes and weights to drop out of suspension at different intervals. The sluice box works as a constant capture system by focusing the entire length of the sluice as being one big capture element.
The header box contains the controllable water delivery system and expanded metal for classifying material before passing it through to the secondary sluice system. The sluice has a primary classifier which will let -1/8" material pass through onto ribbed matting. Larger material passes over the riffles and expanded metal with ribbed carpet under. The riffle assembly is hinged for easy cleanup. Even the smallest of gold flakes will drop out before getting to the end of the sluice.
The header and sluice are made of 16 gauge 5052 aluminum which has high fatigue strength, excellent corrosion resistance, and is perfect for marine atmospheres. The riffles and expanded metal are welded steel and will give years of maintenance free use. Each leg is made from 18 gauge, cold rolled 5/8″ square tube. They are machined with counter facing thru holes, spaced 1″ apart. By simply turning a leg 90 degrees, it allows the operator independent adjustment to each leg by 1/2″ increments. By utilizing “keeper pins,” we have eliminated the need for tools, and removed the risk of stripping threads or losing nuts and bolts altogether. Pad feet allow for stable working conditions in the field as well as on the back porch or in your garage. All Maverick Highbankers come complete with pump, hose, clamps, and necessary hardware for setup. Although the video below states free shipping from the manufacturer, I am not able to ship for free. Your highbanker will ship at the most economical rate from FedEx.
