    Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Was watching their vids on U tube. Was intrigued until I found out is was only a classifier. Anyone else think they were very close to a great idea then missed it? I was impressed with the lack of dust compared to a drywasher.

    For those not following, well never mind. Another great invention on the horizon.

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Really glad that you found us on YouTube. Why did your intrigue end upon discovery that it was "only" a classifier? That is what it was designed to be. It separates rock from dirt and does it very well (and quite rapidly I might add!) All seasoned veterans know that fine gold recovery comes from well classified material.

    What would you like the EARTHQUAKE to do? We are very interested in what our customers think. Please, let me know what we missed. We are constatantly testing new ideas that will make prospecting less strenuous and more profitable for the miner. If you have an idea, let us know. If we don't yet have it in the design/testing phase, your ideas might well benefit yourself and many others. My phone # is listed on the web site. Thank you for the input.

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Since it was already vibrating, and quite well, I expected to see a catcher underneath where the gold would be vibrated to the bottom into a removable cup, with the lighter material floating out holes or ridges higher up. Eliminate any further need to handle the material. I am quite sure it could be done. Do this without the dust cloud of a drywasher and its a real winner.

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Thanks Goldbear for the input. I think I understand what you are saying, classify all the way to concentrate. I wonder if a funnel type setup would do what you envision. The heavies would settle to the bottom of the cup. This might even work with dry material, for sure with water.

    We have 2 types of customers using the machine now. Many, like us, use it to prepare material for use in the Drywasher or to quickly classify material to ensure fine gold recovery in their sluice or high banker. This user generally classifies to 1/4" or 1/8", depending on their finishing equipment. The other type uses the EARTHQUAKE in their finishing room cleaning cons down to as far as 100 mesh. Though we designed the EARTHQUAKE for high volume field use, these are the guys that amaze me. They pull gold from disposed of tailings.....I love classified material!

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Thanks for the ideas Goldbear. You got me and my partners thinking. What you are talking about just might work with just some slight modifications to the EARTHQUAKE. We are going to do some testing. I have notified the R&D Department (that means I called my partner!) of your ideas. Keep an eye out for some additions to the machine. Thanks for the ideas. Miners are amazingly innovative!

    Anybody else have any suggestions?

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    I bought a EARTHQUAKE about 2 months ago it been a great addition to my goldmining process, in the last 2 months i processed alot more meterial than before. In return i'm finding more gold. I think it speaks for it self and is a great investment.

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Well I have an interest in drywashing but with asthma, don't want to be around a dust cloud producing drywasher. Your EARTHQUAKE made me think it was an alternative. Didn't mean to make it sound like it wasn't doing the job it was built for. I think a series of progressive funnels made from metal that could be attached to any bucket with the bottom removed might do the trick. Have to give plenty of area for vibrated material to move out, but a design that the heavier gold would funnel down thru to the bottom into a cup and not be moved out the side. May require a minimum classifier specified on top for that fine gold. Good luck with the invention. I will be waiting for info. Would love to have a free prototype for a review and write up! LOL.

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    The idea that you planted with us actually enticed my partner to go to the shop this morning and do a little experimenting! We are definitely going to do some trials based on your idea. If we can actually find a way to effectively concentrate with the EARTHQUAKE, and I think we can, we will do something for you.

    I think eliminating the dust is a much more daunting challenge. That is going to be a tough one! The EARTHQUAKE doesn't make near as much dust as our drywasher. The modifications that we are discussing will keep the dust about knee high. So with the wind in the right direction and a good design, we might get you out enjoying the 'drywashing' experience. There is a lot of gold to find out there. I will let you know what we come up with. Keep an eye on the website, too. I try to update pics of what we are up to. Again, thanks for the input.

    Hi samcourt rocksteady here i like the earthquake videos and i love the idea of no shaking a bucket i don't like eating the dust or being on my knees. my uncle has a bucket wobbler you shake and i get tired in a short time and real dirty so if you can help me on the hands on you have had with your earthquake i will talk him into getting one thanks

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    Soo....anyone else think "rocksteady" and "samcourt" is the same guy planted in this thread to do some business boosting for the earthquake thing? Just a thought. If so, I think that's a pretty bad self-promotion and would much rather hear authentic comments and see more evidence of the device's effectiveness.

    Re: Earthquake classifier? Only?

    OK Goldbear, I know it has been a while since you "prodded" us into this challenge!

    My partners took this challenge to heart and I think they have come up with something that you might be interested in. They have developed a very nice 12 volt bellows drywasher that fits nicely under the EARTHQUAKE classifier and eliminates ANOTHER step in the Gold refining process. It puts a very nice drywashing plant in one simple, compact machine. It is truly designed for the prospector that wants to move the most amount of material with a small amount of equipment (and labor). It really is pretty cool.....raw material in one end, concentrate out the other!! It will be ready for market soon.

    It will be debuted in the EARTHQUAKE booth at the Fresno, CA GPAA Show next week and again in Las Vegas next month. Should have pics up on the website soon. Hope you can come check it out.

    EARTHQUAKE Vibrating Gold Classifier
    It would not be hard or expensive to put a vibrating sluice under the classifier.

    Based on the amount of vibration I see in the videos I'm assuming that there is vibration in the frame. You could attach 2 to 4 springs to the bottom of a sluice attached to the frame under the bucket. Sluice, springs, frame.

    You can get some vibrating sluice ideas from: http://www.chem.unep.ch/mercury/Hyla...l_CLEAN-07.pdf
