Gold Hog Matting...it's the BEST..
I am not associated with Gold Hog Inc in any way... I am just an old experienced miner...kind of old school in some ways...lol
Anyway.. I am using a very simple sample sluice box as I sample my property prior to placing a much larger commercial system in place...
The box is 10 inches wide...top half is 4 foot long.. bottom half is 3 foot long... both boxes outfitted with Gold Hog matting a combination of both the UR and Srubber matts in the top..just UR in the lower....
We run the boxes at 2 1/4 inches per foot... and 75 gallons of water a minute...and haven't found any gold in our tailings...yet...
These samples are from the worst part of our property.. very high on top of the claim...no round rock ay all.. doesn't look like river gravel at all... and the gold is small at this part of the claim...at first we didn't think it was worth processing...a typical sluice box would not capture it....I know ..we tried... but now we're excited by using the God Hog matting...
What you see below is from a 1/2 yard run bucketing the dirt into the sluice header..no spoon feeding it...nearly
swamping" the upper box......and you'll see the result in pics below...
These pics are from te same pan.. but from different areas of the pan...and the pan was NOT moved around at all....you are seeing new gold in each picture...magnified about 300 times...most of the gold is so small it is just barely visable to the naked eye...You may see these same pics of mine on a different post...
The Gold Hog Matting is incredible from capturing small gold...I recomend everyone use it.. you'll capture more gold...for sure...
Good luck to everyone...

I bought Gold Hog matting (UR only) for the summer here in Colorado. I have not had a chance to try it out, but your experience with it makes me think that I'll do fine. I also have a Gold Cube (there is lots of fine gold in Colorado).
