For this price it comes as a kit set. Very easy to assemble.
The material used is light weight aluminium. Sides are 2mm thick. Rivets are stainless, latches, bolts and wing nuts are zinc plated. A Computerised (CAD) laser cutting process guarantees unsurpassed quality.
The top of the sluice starts with a 34 cm wide flare. A wide flare helps direct more water through the sluice and helps in flow control.
This is followed by 2 sections of deep V ribbed rubber matting (need to be glued into place with silicon or rubber glue which is not supplied) for quick inspection and sampling. If you’re not seeing gold periodically settle in your ribbed matting, dig somewhere else. The gold may eventually wash down behind your riffles, but the matting helps in at-a-glance sampling.
Next comes the main entry riffle with a big trapping volume behind. This area will catch the bulk of your gold. After the second riffle which is part of the cleverly designed hinged riffle tray the material will run over a layer of expanded mesh (aluminium) and the best available matting (spaghetti/nomad) on the market. At the end, the tray forms another riffle to guarantee a high recovery rate.
The rugged quick release latches (need to be riveted to the side of the sluice) make clean up a breeze! Just release the latches, lift the tray, slide the carpet into your tub and rinse the box.
