60 mesh gold recovered with a sluice box

60 mesh gold recovered with a sluice box
This is some 60 mesh gold we recovered with a small testplant and a sluicebox on a project we are currently undertaking here in Montana.

The entire deposit is fine gold but has a shotty characteristic which will probably render it acceptable to a large sluicing type recovery system.

Typically gold this fine and finer requires jigging or a centrifugal secondary recovery. So far my tests are favorable to a high volume sluicing operation.

We are anticipating an early spring startup, weather permitting.
