    Grizzly gold trap pricing

    Anyone remember the price paid for the nugget sluice? Mine is just gathering dust here in Idaho.

    I believe it was between $170-$190. And if you're looking for a buyer I'll put my foot first in line.

    Run that Mini extremely flat and even then youíll lose all the -100 gold. The GGT is easier to run right and catch it all down to the limits of your vision.

    PS I just sold a couple of my Bazookas that Iím not using any longer. Thereís definitely still a market. GGT is only making their larger size now due to the broken mold issue so a Bazooka Sniper is a valuable tool! An acquaintance is buying mine at a club meeting tonight. I let him have it and a BGT cap for $120 since I know him. Worth more but...

    63bkpkr, I have a BGT Prospector that I last used in 2015 just prior to my first stroke. I have a bit of equipment that got shelved back then but I'm going to give it another try this year...I hope. It's funny how when you're young you want for money, but once you retire, good health is worth millions. I can't buy a cure for my impaired vision and it's not for lack of cash but rather no medical cure.
    Stay healthy my friends!

    Underburden, I actually sold my BGT Prospector to fund a purchase of the GGT. It sold, next day I went to get on the GGT website and they were no more. So you are doing me a huge favor by letting me purchase the Nugget from you. Much appreciated.

    I had my BGT turbo-tuned in 2015. If I can pull ľ of what's shown in the pan this year, I'll be real pleased.

    Thank You Kevin, excellent information to know!

    I've zero idea for Certain of when I will get back out there but I want to very badly, I miss being out there a lot, even if I'm not prospecting! The A52 pictured below worked so much better than panning, even though it is set up all Wrong it still caught gold. But, it did allow the biggest picker to go all the way out of the sluice! I was really bummed when it did that. IF I have the chance I'd bring in both the BGT mini as well as my much larger (but NOT the largest) GGT. I'd love to be in there for two months, two months of sunshine, clear cool water, wilderness, bears, bugs, snakes, etc. Yeah, bring it on!!

    All I can do right now is dream, so I shall!............63bkpkr

    Kevin, I have a mini, used only once, and I also have a homemade prospector clone. The prospector clone seems to catch more gold, but it also runs more material. What makes you say it loses fine gold? Genuinely curious, because Iíll just leave it behind if thatís the case.



    And, what is a turbo tuned BGT?

    Mofugly13, Turbo Tuned is just a "hyper verb" to describe that the BGT was running at high efficiency based on the 40 grams recovered from the trap.

    What makes me say the Mini loses -100 gold? Lots of testing. Use of all 4 sizes of BGTs and all 3 sizes of GGTs. Goldwasher will also tell you the same thing.

    The mini is great for how compact it but that tiny fluid bed has limited functionality.

    I figured the Mini would be good for assessing the colors in a lot of dirt quickly though faster than panning, at least faster than my panning.........63bkpkr

    it loses gold bigger than 100 mesh... way bigger.

    it was the worse sluice I ever tried (tied with the amp ) I pushed constantly to have it taken out of production.

    it and the super mini were popular because people wanted the cheapest bazooka they could get..

    hated it

    Dang, so how much is my mini worth now? It's just gathering dust along with the sniper. I've just used my GGT a couple times, haven't found much except for a few specks with it, but that was expected because of the location. However the GGT will be my go to fluid bed sluice. The specks of gold were in the riffles on the deck.
