Doesn't look good. I tried an advanced search and came up empty. Have you thought about trying the new Hydro-Force Nozzles?

Thanks Jim; Yes I have checked them out, Thanks for looking for the old pages, I have even checked Y. tube and nothing there. Oh well it was good stuff back in the day.
Maybe Vortex Rex will make a resurrection from oblivion.

Re: Vortex Rex's machine for land dredging gold.

I think this must be one of the videos from much later It doesn't show the trommel and sluices and his hole was 4-5 ft deep and probably 8 ft radius. Thanks anyways Winner 58!

Re: Vortex Rex's machine for land dredging gold.

I've had a lot of spammer problems and to register on the site takes an email to me at dredger@golddredger.com I then enter the registration manually. You don't need to register to read though. Only to post.

The direst link to the forum is http://golddredger.com/forum

The forum is pretty slow compared to the old days.

I think there are a lot of us old timers that view all of the time. We just aren't pocting. Jim's forum is one of my favorites. I'll probably never make it back to alaska so I live here vicariously.

Re: Vortex Rex's machine for land dredging gold.

There was a posting on my forum http://golddredger.com/forum reminding me of quite a few years ago. Basically, what Dave's device was a small, portable hydraulic elevator. Take a look at

http://golddredger.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=654&start=10

and you will see a huge demo of one. It was in Breckinridge, Colorado. I have more on my forum and I'll look for more info.

Those pictures were scanned from a book "Gold Pan Mining Company and Shops.

http://www.amazon.com/Gold-Pan-Mining-Company-shops/dp/0964102900/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1387578023&sr=8-6&keywords=gold+pan+mining+company

http://www.abebooks.com/Gold-Pan-Mining-Company-shops-Breckenridge/8411626476/bd

If you buy one of the used ones, you will be very happy with it. My wife gave me a new one about 10 years ago. It's 63 pages of history from the Brekinridge Colorado area with bunches of pictures.

Re: Vortex Rex's machine for land dredging gold.

Merry Christmas everyone! Did you get what you wanted? or were you all really dreaming about rich gold bearing material... and how best to get it classified and into a sluicebox...

Yes, I do have video of the later versions of the machine w/ the trommel

Search on Youtube (these are in very low def): Vortxrex Dryland Highbanking Dredge


Interesting in building your own nozzles? or Trommel & sluice boxes?

I have some DIY stuff in the works

Merry Christmas to you to Dave and thanks for coming back on to the forum. I will look for your old video's and future posts, and Thanks again for popping back into the site and thanks Leonard for rounding up Dave. I really enjoyed your post back when it was brand new it was a real eye opener back in the past when it was first posted.

Well headed to Y-tube to find the vid, "V" in Idaho.

Hi Coeur_D_Alene, thanks for the kind words. Here is a link to one of the videos on you tube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebd2I9wAMP0

Jim Alaska saw an earlier version of the machine. Before the trommel recovery system was added.

Here is some video from that trip

Re: Vortex Rex's machine for land dredging gold.

Thanks for all the great info and videos David, I am thinking of applying your land dredge to a shaft sinking project like GreyWolfs videos on cribbing in a shaft. I think until the depth exceeds lift of gold bearing gravels,... Then a fella might have to make a station on his shaft to catch gravel, feed it to another land dredge set up to aid it's trip to the surface. Dont know how far a guy could sink shaft but maybe I can reach bedrock before 20 feet. Oh and thanks for coming back to the forum to help me out. And Thank you too Leonard and Jim.

Vance in Idaho.

Re: Vortex Rex's machine for land dredging gold.


Hi Vance. We sank a shaft over 10 feet on the Rogue River w/ the 4" machine.

See the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-orgLZSBQfs

You can extend the depth w/ another stage of course! Yes i think you could drift along the bedrock(upstream) and run your gravel out through the vertical shaft.

You still need to get the oversize out someway. If the gravel is not cemented tightly (you did say you something about cribbing).... and you have a hose/fitting blow up that could be pretty scary!
