    Spent about 5 hours shoveling gravel from the river on Friday. Got to try my new plastic matting and my 1/2" raised mesh on my sluice. Both worked quite well. My one inch pump was more then I needed for water flow. Below is a video of the dig.

    Well, both worked well. They both held the gold. The plastic mat is very quick to remove from sluice and remove the black sands. The 1/2" mesh takes a little more work to remove the black sands. I have more confidence with the 1/2 inch mesh over the indoor/outdoor carpet, as it has a better place to hide the gold and hang on to it.

    So, I will probably use the plastic matting for quick hunts after work, and the 1/2" mesh over carpet for hunts lasting a lot longer. Sometimes, "Time" is of the essence.
