    Prospecting - Gold and Silver

    Re: Gold cube

    I got my Gold Cube mid December and finally got a chance to try to run some cons thru it. That's Alton Oakes (Colorado Springs GPAA) classifying at 1/8 mesh, and doing the panning.

    We got an exceptional amount of black sand out of the 2 buckets of cons we ran thru and the gold was flour fine (100+ mesh). I will be hitting up more club members to run their cons with before summer to see what affects what.

    I did not buy the stand with the GC - I need something a bit more extreme for where I plan to take my Gold Cube this summer. Its sitting on a piece of plywood and a cinder block for the time being. 1200 gph pump and a 12 volt battery.

    Re: Gold cube

    Additional cleanups (using concentrates - its a bit cold in the Colorado mountains right now) from Clear Creek Colorado. The resulting black sand is full of fines, and it ends up like a thick and hard to work pudding, we ended up panning out a table spoons worth at a time. We ran the material 2 times and there was only a few very tiny flecks that showed up in that cleanup. 1/8 inch mesh screen used as we were feeding the Gold Cube.

    make sure you clear off all the small bubbles off of the vortex matting everytime you stop/restart the water. you will love its ability to strip fine gold and not miss much. only a couple of specks on the second section of matting.

    The gold cube is highly worth the price. 350 dollars isn't much for it's recovery rate..

    There were many doubters in nome last year on the gold cube. We ran all our material through our for stack cubes and all I can say its the best $500.00 dollars spent and the doubters they are gold cube lovers

    I started using the cube a few weeks ago and so far no complaints. It seemed to do pretty good recovering extra fine beach gold out of very heavy black sand. Only thing I noticed is really thin flat gold seems to travel on the mat some. I'm using the four stack and found a picker on the top part of the last tray. When I looked at it close, the gold was really thin, so if thats the kind of stuff you might be running, make sure you get a four stack and check the bottom tray occasionally to make sure you aren't losing any flat stuff. Other than that I love it! Cuts my work to nearly nothing. Wish I would have bought it sooner.

    After I run beach sand through the cube I still like to run it's cons on my Black Magic since it's a royal pain trying to pan that super fine stuff out. Great investments! Time is money, and those two together save me tons of it! A little pricey, but I look at it as an investment, one I'm glad I made.

    My friend ran the spoils (10 buckets) on his M-7 shaker table and found only three small flecks that is impressive in itself.

    That is a difficult question. In a totally worst case scenario, about 20 buckets. Best case scenario will be 50 buckets. Lets say you are running old drywash tailing piles and you are bringing water with you because it has recently rained and screwed it up for dry washing for a week or 3. This is the best case. One, the fine clay has been blown off when it was processed by the drywasher, and two, everything is already wet at least a little. Worst case is you are in the dry material and you have to get everything wet as it flows through the Cube. Your tailing catch pan gets full and when you empty it, you will be pulling out water with it. Even when you drain it as good as you can, the soil is still damp and holding some of your water. You will have to replentish water more often in the system and the water will use up faster. Also you will be soaking down all that fine dust too. It will gum up the water pretty fast. Use more than one tub so it acts as a settling pond and use a flocculating agent to allow the particulates to drop faster, like clay-gone. Use less than it calls for, too much will roll things up in little balls. Hope this helps, ask away if there are more questions. If you have a drywasher and the ground is bone dry, use it and clean out more often so you do not migrate gold, take all those cons and run them through the Cube. Those many buckets will be pretty clean and will be able to run with minimal water loss. All those clean-ups will now be 1-1/2 cups of easy panning.
