    Anyone running a commercial operation with large wash plant?

    Im trying to help out a miner improve the gold recovery on their sluice runs. I have questions about matting, riffles, expanded metal etc. Anyone have pictures of your set up?

    There are many factors that weigh in when deciding what setup to use ,like average type /size of gold,amount of black sands etc.
    However there is only one scientific study i know of that has tested whats going to catch most of the average gold around to be found ..and thats the clarkson report

    This is their operation.Its placer mining. They are using the stiff green outdoor carpet but they have to replace it every 2 weeks. Over the carpet they are using flat bar as riffles. They are averaging 160 grams of gold ever 24 hour cleanout.

    Striker, were I in your position I would contact the folks
    at GoldHog. They can fix you up with just the right combo
    of matting for your application.

    The hog mats probably wont work. The sluice runs are welded and fixed in position and non adjustable. This is a very remote area in the jungle so it takes a long time to get there. I was looking for something to replace the green carpet they are replacing every 2 weeks. Maybe Nomad matting or Klondike Miners Moss and add some expanded metal.

    How do you weld on bamboo? Looks like cheese balls and corn nuts? $10000 a day and they worry about carpet cost? Wut?
