    Fixing my paver sidewalk a few days ago I noticed this sand had a lot of quartz in it.So I decided to run some of it on the table(classified to minus 80). A day later when the 'money pit' was dry I brushed the material with a 2" nylon paint brush (about 2 tablespoons of it)into a pan,and panned it.Click image for larger version.

    What I've found with the table is minus 10 material is too big.The pieces of junk material just clog up the water flow which in turn bumps the gold away.I'm running a 4" drop over the 44" length,and its worked Great for minus 20 down to minus 100 material.What you need is just a thin sheet of water-flow,With no air bubbles, no waves, and a few drops of jet-dry(per 2 gals. of water). Minus 20 through minus 80 gold Will drop in its tracks (as soon as it hits the table) and stay there ! While all the rest of the stuff heads downstream w/in a second.

    I don't JUST bring home gravel. I enjoy panning and sluicing at the stream with my wife who really gets into it. I am a lucky man to have her as a partner.
    When I am in the gold I classify pay dirt to 1/4 inch to bring home. Usually end up with a dozen 5 gal. pails in the basement for Winter panning. When panning at the stream I don't pan down too close. Only enough the grab the bigger pieces. The rest goes into a peanut butter jar. At home I classify that to just smaller than 12 mesh, remove the black sands and put aside for the miller table. Keeps me kinda busy for the Winter.

    From a 3 gallon bucket I brought home in the fall, used it for testing a new sluice I made. So far I'm happy with my results.
