Impressed with the craftsmanship

Pam Keigley uses her new sluice box

Saturday, I received the mini sluice that I won recently and wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the craftsmanship.  I can tell that this was made by a perfectionist as the rivets are spaced equally on each side and the tray seams, screws and matting are neatly sealed  This is really a well made piece of equipment that will last a lifetime.  And quite pretty too!

Yesterday my son and I worked with this sluice on some cons from North Carolina and it worked perfectly; capturing even the finest specs.  We used the direct connection approach on my small but adequate condo patio.  I’m not sure these pictures do justice but I just love this little gem and am ecstatic with the results.

Thank you so, so much.  (Terrible picture of me but the star is the sluice.)

We appreciate our veterans

Recently had the privilege of helping the wife of a veteran, giving us a chance to give back and show our appreciation for his service in a small way:

Buyer message: This sluice is for my disabled veteran husband. I cannot afford anything more. I hope you are able to accept this bid. If not I understand.

Dear prospectorschoice,

Thank you sooo much! It is a gift for him. He used to be a real outdoorsman but he cannot do so much anymore, but he loves being outdoors! We went panning a while ago and I able to do the harder work and he can sit and pan and he doesn’t see it as him being not able to do something. I told him I am not good at the panning part. 🙂 He loves the time outdoors and feels like he is having an adventure, which has done a lot for his emotional state. I want to tell you how much this means to me and he is going to love this. It is going to be used to keep him up moving and back outdoors where he is happiest. You are the best 🙂

Dear prospectorschoice,

I am sorry, for some reason I don’t know if I paid their right invoice. I didn’t seem to find one that I could definitively decide was from you. I had to uninstall and install the ebay app twice. I paid and invoice please let me know if I am right. Thanks.

Dear dnew1770,

You go the right one, we picked up the shipping on this for you. Is this a gift for your husband? If so, we hope he likes it. And tell him thank-you from us 😉

Dear prospectorschoice,

I just wanted to thank you again we got the package. I was going to wait until Christmas but he was having a rough emotional time, so I gave it to him early. We went to our favorite spot and I dug some paydirt for him. He spent afternoons this week out in the driveway, sitting and working what I dug. He is in a much better frame of mind and even found some gold!

Thanks so much!  I would have never been able to afford it without your generosity.

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. 🙂

But you’re probably here to get your hands on the finest gold prospecting equipment available, from gold panning kits to river sluices to highbankers.
