    It is all getting dirty tomorrow. We are all going out to the Llano river to really mess it up.

    Yup, my kids are all excited. I had them practicing on lead shavings in the back yard with regular dirt. I put 4 tiny lead shavings in the dirt and each of them panned it down and found all 4 shavings. The kids are now confident that they know what to do and they are only 9 and 11. My 20 year old daughter is coming with us, and she is sort of excited, but she hates being out in the sun, I think she might be a vampire.

    Nice equipment, good luck tomorrow. If you notice the trap holding too much bigger gravel, you can run a 4 mesh hardware cloth zip tied over the stock grizzly to cut down on that.
    Sample till you find the hot spot, then mine it till its gone! Then start over...

    Is there a group that gets together on the Llano for prospecting? I'm up in North Texas and was looking for a place to go and have a little fun. Oh, and good luck today. Hope to see pics of a little color

    I finally tried out my Bazooka gold trap sluice this last weekend, prospector model. I only had about an hour, so I collected two five gallon buckets and ran them. I was on the Arkansas River around Buena Vista CO. The river is still low, so I was able to collect from exposed riverbed. I only got about 10 course flakes, not bad for just scooping from around rocks quickly. I'm happy so far with the performance of this sluice, hopefully I'll be able to spend more time this weekend putting this thing through it's paces. By the way, you don't need to worry about the bigger, lighter gravel in the trap. As you feed it, the heavy material builds up in the bottom of the trap and slowly pushes the lighter gravel out. Since I didn't run very much last weekend, I had a lot of light gravel in the trap, so an 8 mesh classifier seperated it from the heavies in about 5 seconds.

    I just bought the prospector model for use in the San Juans in CO where the sediments are very course. This design should allow easy seperation and collection from that type of sediment. Literally zero clays, just coarse particles. Dirt that hasn't had a chance to become fine yet you might say.

    I used it 2 times last season, and this season I am going to modify the stand I built for it to be more sturdy. The Llano river is really fast and it knocks over the stand, so I am planning on mounting pontoons to the stand and that should keep the bazooka submerged at the proper depth no matter what depth of water Im working in.
    This is what my stand looks like now, Ill post photos when Im done modifying it.

    Unless we get some more snow in CO, might not be enough water to run a sluice come spring!
