    How To Size A Sluice Box Mineral Processing Metallurgy

    Jul 29, 2015 How to SIZE a Sluice Box. This week I went and asked how to SIZE a sluice box to the crew on a large gold prospector forum and other sluice or gravity gold recovery experts and gathered the list of emails and forum posts here below. As you will see, in summary, most can optimize or troubleshoot a sluice box but few or none can size a gold sluice box.

  • Why does sluicing work that way Discussion

    Why Does Sluicing Work That Way Discussion

    Jan 09, 2015 Instead of a sluice producing local ores, it produces ores according to the gravel you put in. However, the way sluices work now is that it only produces ores if there are veins in the area. Youd lose that believability aspect in exchange for a different one, namely producing ores that could exist in that stone type.

  • How I built a recirculating sluice box for gold prospecting

    How I Built A Recirculating Sluice Box For Gold Prospecting

    I placed the sluice behind some rocks that were partially damming the stream. I placed a heavy rock on a board on top of the sluice to keep it from floating up off the bottom of the stream. As the water cascaded over the dam, it fell right into the top of the sluice box right where the spraybar is located.

  • Why Are Dredge Sluices So Short Sluicing Highbanking

    Why Are Dredge Sluices So Short Sluicing Highbanking

    Apr 12, 2013 Fast water moving down the sluice pushes the gold down the box. If the water is moving slow enough, the gold will drop out quickly. If its moving too fast, it will work its way down and out of the sluice no matter how long it is. Thats why long slices are kind of irrelevant. Old timers used to make real super long sluices like 1000 feet long.

    Dec 17, 2012 Sluice boxes made of steel sheet metal, aluminum plastic come in all sorts of designs, length, width, riffle configurations.

    Jan 28, 2017 Your sluice looks and operates quite different in the first 10 minutes from the last ten minutes. So we want to tune it with the knowledge that H.E. will cause some loading and impaction. Keeping the sluice right on the borderline of being too hot will often help the more material you run.

    Aug 17, 2017 3.Replace the carpet with a better sluice matt. The wire mesh traps a ton of rocks. If it builds up too high the gold flows right over it.
