    Cleaned up some cons my brother gave me.....

    Yesterday I processed 2 days of dry washing cons my brother brought back from Arizona. I ran them on my home made 6"x36" clean up sluice using Gold Hog "Washer" mats. Classified a couple gallons of dirt to 20, 12, and 8 mesh just because I just got a new set of classifyers and wanted to use them.
    I can't find my scale but it looks to be between 1 and 2 grams.
    It took a total of maybe 45 minutes total including running the finest cons twice (found nothing on the second run), 4 runs total and panning each run clean.
    Man it was sweet to see lines of gold in the mats.
    I wish I could get this kind of chunky stuff in my area.
    I called him and to let him know what I got and he said "keep it, I have 20 more gallons to clean up." He couldn't believe I was done so quick, he uses a spiral wheel and he sucks at panning. I'm used to panning out 100-200 gold, this stuff was a dream.

    I wish I had 20 gallons of dry washer cons available. If I did I could test what I wrote up here. Do any of you do this?.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Be nice if his 20 stays consistent or better .
