    Hi mshanygin, great catch but I think you should try the Skykomish, there is a lot of flood gold there thanks to all the flooding we've had and I think you will do well there, maybe I'll see you up there some day.

    To me that is a good thing, it is your indicator that you are on the gold, I would probably get a cheap paint brush and use that to move it down before cleanup, my sluice is modified so I know instantly that I am on the gold or not.

    Great stuff, thanks for sharing! @mshanygin how do you like the Bazooka so far? I have a MacKirk, but spend quite a bit of time classifying. I'm thinking the Bazooka might be better suited for the places I plan to frequent.

    I am still learning on the bazooka. Much simpler then a "normal" sluice. I have to run it extra slow to keep the super fine. I have tried the same spot slow and at a step incline and it definitely makes a difference. I certainly can't do a 5 gallon bucket in the 5 minutes they say if I want to hold on to the real fine stuff. 20 minutes for me. But no classifying.

    I have a 36" Sniper and I LOVE it. Not having to classify, pretty lightweight, the nylon handle, even it being made of black ABS helps to see any gold going down, I have nothing bad to say about them. They're excellent sluices. If for any reason you get one and didn't like it (not likely to happen) you could easily sell it and get what you paid for out of it as they hold their value.

    That is gorgeous gold no matter where ya got it, but to
    have found it in Everett? That makes it all the better!

    BTW, I have a Gold Cube, and Everett is only a 90 min. drive. Two guys,
    a high-speed, 38 gal. classifier plus Gold Cube would get almost every
    speck of that small stuff, plus anything larger......

    But I understand if ya don't call...

    That was fun, man! A big thanks to ET for taking the time to show a noob tips on how to read the aftermath of floods.

    My take was smaller. I spent too much time monkeying around with my new sluice. It took some time to figure out when I had it set up properly. As you can see by comparison, I lost a lot of fine gold thanks to having the sluice set up poorly for the first few hours. It was a great learning experience for me though! Next time will be much better!
