    Portable Mini Sluice box.

    Good evening everyone. I have an interesting question for prospectors. I live in East Tennessee and there are some areas that we can go gold panning. We can use non-power sluice boxes. I found a portable one that folds up and is about 50 inches long when opened up. Here is a picture of it. Has anyone used it, and what is your opinion on it. Click image for larger version.

    My initial thoughts, looking at the picture, as that it should
    be fine. The flare at the front could be a bit wider, but you
    can use rocks to direct more flow into the sluice, if needed.

    Who is the manufacturer?

    I have one just like it. Works great if you are just checking an area for color, but not much else.

    50 inches is more than you need and long sluices are harder to setup. Folding sluices have their own issues. Taken together, these issues mean this sluice is a poor choice, especially for a newer prospector.

    Get something shorter like a Angus Mackirk, Le Trap, or a 36 riffle sluice like a Keene A52
