Danube gold
Me and a few friend are going to Danube gold. Danube flows from Alps to the east and on most of its lenght is gold-bearing. We are heading a place by the Slovakia - Hungary border. There is very fine gold, long transported, fine micro flakes. In short beach gold on the banks of big river.
This sunday we went to Moldau river near Prague to try our various highbankers... here

Re: Danube gold
Honza - it is always a special treat to us to see you post here!

FIRST - You're Miner" is a most impressive sight - May I ask his name?

Related to you perhaps?

And so, now - to the pictures.

Why such small drill holes in your spray bar?

Also, why shoot up to end up only hitting low?

Possibly (maybe) larger holes (spray holes ) to specific areas of the hopper would 'boil' the material more to release the Gold from the clay?

I (we) always enjoy seeing your mining photos. Thank you for your postings!!!!!

Re: Danube gold
That miner is my son (3) - little Honza.

Spray holes - I started testing with little holes, they are easy to enlarge, but no way back :confused:. I had cordless drill at the place and drilled larger holes on the right places by the time.

We were well satisfied with pump - 180 keene pump at minimum RPM fed 3 sluices.

Re: Danube gold
Honza,your pictures,especially today,are most welcome.In Nome,our temps are hanging in at mid 20'sF(-4C).
Also interesting is your description of your gold as having a large portion of flake gold with it. It makes the design of your sluices and the water feed rate even more relevant to a beach miner.
Good luck!

Re: Danube gold
Honza,in case that's not "old technology" for all,take a look at this. On YouTube look up "Tube Retort". It is a 4 part instructional on construction of a simple retort. It might come in handy for someone like the miner in the video.

I believe it was designed by a professor to help eliminate careless use of mercury.
