The Scout 1200 Highbanker is a true highbanker with hopper, sluice, and powered water supply. It features the Prospectors Choice Alluvial Sluice design for superior gold recovery by lessening of water pressure. The hopper will classify material down to -1/2" before passing on to the sluice box. The sluice box has ribbed assay matting at the head of the 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.
The Prospectors Choice Scout 1200 has a 28" sluice with widths from 6" to 8 1/2". Powered with a Tsunami 1200 gph pump this highbanker will run a lot of material with excellent gold recovery from tiny flakes to nuggets. The pump, wire, pump hanger, legs, stand, and all hardware are included with the package.
