Cleaning up the sluice box in Montana

Cleaning up the sluice box in Montana
Les and Albie removing the riffles on one of our  projects here in Montana.

We were getting almost 98% coarse nugget gold and this was all the sluice that we needed.

Cleanups were fast and very easy.
This is usually not the case on most mining projects. Mountains of carpet and blacksands are usually the norm, and a sore back thats for sure!

Check out the web site for more information.

Sluice box: what is with all the water

sluice box
I was working on a small cutterhead dredge on the Caronie River in Venezuela in 2003. This dredge was very successful. You can see the lower pulp density and the enormous amount of water going through the sluice box.

When we did a cleanup, it amazed me to see the amount of fine gold that was captured. I spent the usual time worrying what we lost but the front of the box was very good with the recovery of fine Gold and even an occasional Diamond.

Great day of fishing
