What is the difference in the High Bankers?

Maverick 500 in use

Is it just the pump size?

There are a few more differences than just the pump size. All three have different riffle designs and combination of materials within the sluice box for different configurations.

The 500 (Beach) model, has a ¼” primary classifier, with ¼” raised expanded material, combined with a round rod riffles system. To be used with smaller material (Beach Sand) and has a ribbed rubber matting. Measures 23” long.

The 800 model has a ½” primary classifier, with ½” raised expanded material, combined with a flat riffle design system. To be used with ¼” classified material, but will classify to ½” and has our rubber-backed black ribbed carpet, combined our black “moss” carpet. Measures 23 “ long.

The 1200 model has the same primary classifier, with ½” raised expanded, but comes with a drop riffle, or “Hungarian” design riffle. Which creates a much larger eddy behind the riffles and is 28 “ long. This too has the Black Carpet.

Welcome to Prospectors Choice

Offering Prospectors a Choice of economical small scale mining equipment that inspires the Freedom of Choice.  Choice means Freedom!

We are a mining supply company that’s all about gold and gold prospecting. We got bit by the bug in 2007 and have had gold fever ever since. For those of you who do not know what gold fever is, it’s the worst kind of sickness. There is no cure for it, no doctor or medicine can relieve it. Only the flash in the pan of this elusive and intoxicating mineral seems to calm it . . . for a little while anyway.


“We” consist of friends and family that have a love and a passion for the great outdoors. We all come from different walks of life. All of us have camping and hiking experience. The one thing we do have in common is the love and the challenge of the search for gold. Over the past years we have nurtured relationships with some of the local people of Cleator. Yes people do live in this ghost town. That is what a major draw to the area is for us all.

We spend weeks at a time in our campers, enjoying the search for gold, wildlife watching, photography opportunities and flower collecting. We like to assert our constitutional rights and shoot our guns, burn camp fires, 4 wheel and prospect for minerals on our claims. The town of Cleator is close by. They have the train house and the bunk house for visitors to stay in, and of course has a bar, with the co-o-oldest beer in town. 🙂
