Third trip this week to the river. Got to hit it before it freezes solid. I brought my Pyramid Pro Pan with me this time so I could carry only super concentrates back to the truck. The area in the pic marked in yellow is what I processed. Six buckets concentrated down to 3 gallons.
This is my clean up sluice. Notice the plexiglass baffle. It's mounted with a gap at the bottom. I achieve this gap by placing a piece of deep vee mat upside down and setting the plexi on it. I then just tape it in place and pull the deep vee out.
Here's what it looks like running cons. Even though I have over 1½" of water in the dump chamber it's impossible to over feed it. The small gap under the plexi controls the feed to the sluice.
Here's the entire system. Notice the water surface...perfect! There's deep vee mat, 3/8" expanded over carpet and then ¾" expanded over carpet at the end. Sluice is only 6" wide at the discharge end.
When I see this, it's time for a clean up.
Speaking of clean ups...
Twice the weight of Wednesday's take. If only this gold had some thickness to it then maybe it would weight more than .26 gram ;^)
