    I like this stuff pretty good . I run my 30 mesh down crush over 10 ft .
    of sluice ( at home ) with only this stuff ( no riffle or other ) .
    Actually it would be only 9 ft. of the mat cause I have a foot of slick when
    it drops from 10" to 12" to 18" in width . It's durable and is very
    effective with fine stuff and the proper flow . Works for me anyhow.







    This is where I buy mine .

    it all works fine! i use the triangle shaped ribbed matting.just remeber to screen your material and run each screening seperatly and slowly!and use somesort of sufactant like jetdry to keep the fines from floating.

    Did anyone else tack on "for her comfort" when they read the subject?

    I'd try that goldhog stuff just to see if it lives up to the hour + video on it.

    I got a couple feet of that basic floor v-matting at ACE.

    in "self-cleaning" the water going down the sluice keeps the riffles clean of non-heavies, sort of like the matting at the first part of the Keene. It will eventually fill up and you then stand it in your bucket, or what I was doing is stand it upright in the pan and run water down it and flush out all the heavies. I use a cup to run the water down it but you could splash it. takes seconds and then you put it back in the stream.

    If you watch my video in the last part of it I demonstrate the cleanout
