Hi Dan, I think you have a great idea w/ the DIY vacuum forming & mold making. How about getting your machine completed & taking is down south (You are in NY right ?) to some of the mining areas in the SE States. Get some videos of your design working & recovering gold in a real gold-bearing environment.

yes azkid, thats exactly what i said when i saw the g1, ha ha ha if you look at the other 2 threads i ran, clear gold pan and design your own highbanker. they show more pics of the "slot" riffle layout. And Yes I am planning a week trip this week or next down south NC / Georgia to give it a try. Ive already have a couple of stops lined up but could always use more if you have any suggestions Vortxrex, thanks for any input Dan

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

It looks interesting(I did follow the other threads), but what exactly is the buyer buying? I understand that the frame isn't included, but are you bidding on one or two trays and do you have the options of clear or black, deep riffles or shallow? It's ebay without a Buy-It-Now price, so it's an auction if I'm understanding alright.

If a person could simply order a clear, deep riffle box for $100 and a black, shallow riffle box for $50 plus shipping, I'd understand. I'd also probably order a set.

Sorry Kaveman, its my 1st attempt to sell on ebay, and yes Ive been told about the "buy it now" button, but havent found it yet on the revise page button. But youve got it right, i will sell the black boxes either design for $50.00 each and the same box in clear plastic for $100.00 each plus shipping. I do appreciate your patience, Later Dan

how deep are the groove/indentations on the upper portion and also how do the riffles look on the under portion.

The "slots/rifles" range in depth from 1/4" to 1" with the 1" slots on the top of the"faster water sluice"

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

How Many do you need? ha ha My supply of sluice boxes will be consistent till the beginning of May, OK lets say the end of April. Once I have the mold in place in the machine it takes about 10 minutes to make one box. It starts with the slow heating of the plastic and ends with the fans on the plastic cooling it in the mold. I have several hundred made and am planning a sales trip down to the southern states gold belt soon to sell off what I've made so far. I have left for Alaska in May or early June for the last 5 years so once I'm gone mining I wont be selling anymore of these boxes till I get back, august /sept sometime.So let me know:smile: thanks Dan

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

Hi Dan,

I really like the idea that you've developed.

Have you optimized the design ?

Are there different sizes and styles ?

Have you figgered max thru put rates ?

Prices direct to me rather than e/bay ?

Any plans for a "monster sluice " ? Or add on sections ? Fer instance 18 in wide by 4 foot increments, with first unit having a slick plate incorporated, or all for that matter. That might be simplest, only need one mold then. I doubt that a slick plate in the 2nd etc stages would give any problems.

I'm aiming at making a system that will handle -100 material that comes out of a mill. I would like to get all heavies that are produced and comb out the salables downstream of the sluices. Use the "D-1" as an on -site concentrator and pick n choose when and where convenient.
It looks like your sluices would be worth considering for the initial bulk reduction of material to semi-cons.
This operation is something I hope will expand to many tons per hour and by using your sluices as said above, I could more easily and cheaply go big quick.

This site is one of the premier mining info sites of the world and would be a super place to advertise your wares.

Hi Dan

Although I am a recreational prospector I am more interested in the vacuum forming machine that you are using.Is it a home made job, and what is the largest size sheet that it will form. I'm working on a non mining idea that vacuum forming would be great for , but I need a former that would handle
4'x8' sheets.
Nice work on the sluice.

Tom

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

Hi Baub, yes, my "black boxes" have been used for several years now up in Alaska. Thats where Ive done the majority of testing. Ive made over 25 different prototypes, with different openings(tops and bottoms of sluice, open closed, or both)so that adds 4X the options, So thats 100 different boxes tested, without considering all the different lengths I made out of the different shape molds.I have been working on a Super Sluice which can be added onto each other and capable of higher volumnes of water. approx. 18" X 36" X 6" these will have slick plates, or sections of flat lay down area for the gold. I will post some pics as soon as I can. THe boxes are no longer for sale on ebay, but you can get them at gold shows or many mining supply shops. I mailed a half dozen to AMDS last year and havent had any response yet if they sold or even recieved them, ha ha Alaskan Mail. thanks later Dan

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

Thanks Dan for getting back to me.
Any idea of the thruput for say an array of 3 parallel 18x36x6 modules ? Tons per hour? Or lbs/hour?
Would putting 2 units in series increase the time between cleanups ?
Price per unit ?

Good luck to you Dan.

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

Thats quite a few things that i havent tested yet. But i've got a really great design for a "module" which I would sell for around $50.00 each, all being the same shape. interlockable and exchangeable quickly for testing and clean up. The smaller you can classify the better off you'll be, probably >1/8". I've got a 12"X24" box for sluicing and clean ups now for around $20.00. But shipping costs always seem to be the killer with these odd shapes. Good Luck Dan

Re: Highbanker, Sluice Box for sale on ebay,

Hey Dan,

I wanted to congrats you for your efforts, sounds like a good deal.with a bit of luck we will hear some more reports soon, just gotta wait till everyone settles in , Aye, ?. but i am looking forward to it ,

Also I wanted to suggest to the new guys ( and anyone with any sluice, ) something which is actually the best / cheapest tool for setting up ya sluice,



The Stabila, I have owned forever, ( as you can see, ), cost me 12 bucks, although I did not need another, I brought a new one for a spare.

I would suggest from my experience (you can see the wear and tear, ) that stabila saved me so much time in setting up and tuning sluices,

I would suggest consistent accuracy could only result in the best recovery,

The pocket level is the only one easily available at the hardware, $25 , please note i have set both bubbles at horizontal, and the dial shows 2.5 degree discrepancy, :confused:.

Sorry I forgot to set the stabila, in which the dial is correct to .1degree,,

Also please note the stabila has 5 increments per 10 degrees, and and the pocket level is 2 increments per 10 degrees. harder to read, but you can always scratch you own marks, ???.

My experience was to set up my sluices very quickly ( lift them and the pump stand which also had to be level,with a excavator ) and stand back and say " perfect ", wait wait, I don't mean perfect recovery, ( I abuse the suction nozzle for perfect recovery ), i mean perfect set up, and quick too.more time dredging,very little adjustment required.

Now yous all know my secret weapon, :confused:.:smile:.

Also , " I think " if ya use a accurate level allot over a long time, you can learn a good or better sense of what is level and whats not level, by eye , I think.

Good luck all.
