New Style Sluice Box ( 17:42:12 MonMar 11 2013 )

The manVSgold crew has been selected to do testing for Gold Well Sluices this season.They have some very interesting new drop riffle/vortex sluice boxes. They have asked us to do video testing/reviews of their sluice boxes. They are confident enough in their product, to let us take them out to our claims and beat them up on camera, so that our viewers can see the results. We will be starting with the 6x36 inch model and working our way through the various sizes.Stay tuned!

That looked real impressive but I wonder how much the paper weighed?

Interesting concept, but it would not replace my LeTrap whitch cost alot less money not to mention it's simplicity.

Hey there, Gold Well,

In two of your postings, that were made seven minutes apart, you said:

“ … losing material especially the fine gold is not a big concern.”
and
“ … I recovered a mixture of 20 mesh down to 60- mesh, much of which is ultra fine gold in the 400 mesh range. … The Vortexes actually are designed to catch that fine gold …”

Asking as someone who catches Gold from 7/8” down to so small it is absolutely unable to be seen by the naked eye – just what range do you consider “right” for your equipment to recover?

In addition, classifying bank run down to ½ or ¼ inch is thoroughly impractical for any miner more advanced than a novice weekender. Now, as a simple concentrate concentrator that wouldn’t be unusual – however – the pricing does seem a bit out of sight compared to many similar performing concentrators.

Joe

Hiya Joe,
The goldwell guys are not here.Im not associated with them in any way.They just happed to see my youtube videos and ask me to test them on video for all to see.I dont know any more about the box than you do.I havent seen it in real life or tested it. I was just posting to let everyone know we will soon be testing the unit so they could see an unbiased review and test.Wish I could answer more questions for you Joe but I have no answers as of yet.You can e-mail the goldwell guys if you have questions that need answering.

Here is my youtube channel

You can see I was around long before goldwell came along and that I have no association with them. Thanks Joe!

You Bet!

All my mis-understanding.

I'm sure we all would like to see the results on that testing!

It just fascinates me to see all of the variations to the sluice people have dreamed up. I tip my hat to every one of them. This one is cute too. I don't know if it will be any better than the others, but it is a cool idea.
