After many questions and inquiries, we have come up with a compact, light and highly effective gold sluice box for recovering gold from any stream or river. Prospectors Choice STF285BK River Sluice Box is a simple, no nonsense straight tray sluice box, designed for ease of use.
The sluice is 29” long (33” overall with flare), 8” wide with 3” tall sides, and weighs only 5lbs 15 oz. Sluice is made from .063(16 g), 5052 aluminum, combined with 13 gauge expanded steel and 18 gauge steel riffle’s, welded together, and painted.
The flared inlet allows as much water as possible to gather.
6″ heavy duty assay matting is then glued in place with strength glue combined with premium waterproof silicone, allows for easy and quick identification of gold!
Material then flows over 4″ all steel, 1/2″ tall riffle’s, with attached 1/2″ raised expanded metal, each pocket grabs, and holds onto the gold!
All held in place with simple wing nuts, which can then be reversed to hold sluice in place in the river.
Under this is our black, rubber backed, deep ribbed carpet. It really does a great job of grabbing even the smallest pieces of gold.
Small enough to clean up in a 5 gallon bucket.
Small compact size makes it easy to use anywhere.
We are not a huge manufacturing shop; we do not stamp out hundreds of these an hour. Each is handmade.
