These riffles were working perfectly.

I am a tremendous fan of the Clarkston report. I usually start out with miners moss at least a half inch thick. Every deposit has a characteristics that are different, meaning the blacksands may be fine, these tend to pack the riffles, combine that with flat and flakey gold and you are going to have serious recovery problems.

This shot above shows a good recovery with indoor outdoor carpet. While I am not a fan of this type of carpet, it seemed to work very well with this type of gold and the feed rate we fed the sluices with.

It  is always a good idea to observe every aspect of any recovery plant. You may see a clue that will help in your own recovery efforts. For this type of gold, the indoor outdoor carpet worked well.

Operators of plants tend to get a favorite matting, but from my years of overall experience the miners moss is usually the very best choice. I tend to stay on course with that, but occasionally I will put something new into my circuits for sure, to check it out.
