    Re: My Diy Fluid Bed Gold Trap Sluice

    Here is a simple inexpensive way that I designed to make a fluid bed gold trap to just slip under the riffle tray to hold it in place at the end of your 10" wide sluice.

    It's made from a piece of 4" dia pvc with a cap on each end and a 3/4" pvc pipe with three rows of 1/8" holes on each side of the pipe staggered and drilled 1/2" apart mounted 1/2" off the bottom of the main chamber.

    The grizzly is a paint roller grid with a piece of sheet aluminum pop riveted to the end that goes under the riffle tray. There is also a baffle that extends 3/4" below the height of the discharge port mounted to the bottom left hand side of the grizzly to insure that no floating gold gets away.

    I call it the "Add a Trap"
    Easily fits into a 5 gal bucket to clean out the gold.

    The faster you run your material through any sluice the more fine and flour gold you will loose without using something like this.
    Finer mesh screen can also be added over the grizzly if desired.

    The 1" overflow port for discharge of the lighter material is cut to be 1/2" lower than the grizzly

    Improved version using 3/16" punch plate.....

    Unlike the commercial operations in the Klondike that recover an amount of gold that the owners are happy with even with the knowledge that they are loosing over a million dollars worth of gold off the end of their sluice a season, we here in Indiana are not blessed with multi ounce clean up's so we need to recover every single speck

    Wonder how much gold my commercial version would have captured off the end of Fred's sluice in Porcupine Creek and the Hoffman's in the Klondike?

    It really is one of the most patentworthy ideas I've seen in a long time. I hope it pays off for you as it could easily be added to a great many machines being sold. The simplicity of the 4" pipe unit is beautiful.

    Thanks calisdad,

    But that is just a toy compared to the commercial stainless steel version I designed with all the bells and whistles, and I'm anxious to see what the manufacturer of industrial washplants has to say after my demo next month. I was supposed to demo it this month but the appointment was postponed due to a scheduling conflict.

    I believe it has the potential to be considered a "must have" piece of recovery equipment by anyone serious about not loosing the flour and fine gold that gets washed off the end of the sluice. Especially when the water flow rate gets up over 100, 200, and even 300+ GPM. If nothing else it can aid in the fine tuning of the plant by monitoring the amount of gold it traps.

    GG i wish you all the success in the world with your demo!!!!becarefull not to let them steal your idea! it has been many times over to the inventors!for a self patent. take pictures and do a write up of this device and keep a copy and mail one back to you and dont open it. this is a cheap way to patent it! any patent can be defeated by changing something to make it slightly different. look what happened to the DFS sluice by Phil Hontz in New Mexico!

    RUSSAU,
    THAT "LETTER TO ONE'S SELF" IS ACCEPTABLE IN COURT AS LONG AS IT GETS OPENED
    IN COURT.
    I HAVE A FEW IN MY SAFE THAT AREN'T GOING ANY WHERE, AND ONE THAT I NEED TO SEND
    BUT HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY PICS YET FOR A TRAILER LIGHT REPAIR KIT.

    I GOTTA GET BUSY ON SOME OF MY HOME PROJECTS THIS WINTER.

    I BELIEVE THAT GG'S LATEST WORK IS HIS BEST, OR AT LEAST IT IS THE BEST THAT
    I HAVE SEEN SO FAR. I HOPE IT PANS OUT "BIG TIME" FOR HIM.

    GOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS.
