    Angus classifier

    I thought id share this with you all. Move twice the material and dont kill your back in the process.

    thats what i have been doing with my keene .....it works great no classifying into a bucket.....move lots of material....Camino knows how much i hate bucket classifying.The nice thing about the Keene is that theres room to dump material before it hits the classifier. I bought an aluminium flare for my plastic drop riffle, so i can do the same thing.

    Caminochaos, I have an Angus Recon which is much smaller and have thought about putting a classifier on it similar to what you have done. Have you had it working yet and if so did you find any issue with it not holding the material long enough to clear or wash everything before it rolls off. What did you use for the classifier itself and what size is it. looks to be about 1/2". What model sluice is it the Boss or the Foreman? Like the concept gonna have to see what I can come up with.

    Camino,
    Looks great, these drop riffles work great for shoveling right in with a bbq grate on top or fridge tray, I have been messing with it too, I hate doing the bucket shake.
    Will work for gold dust.

    Its a bbq grill 3/8". It works great. The slope allows the rocks to get cleaned off and the roots i just do a cheese grater rub on it.

    Hunter how much clay do you deal with? fill your bucket half full with material, add water and slurry mix your material,pick out the larger cobbles then add to your sluice it works great. I recover very very very fine gold.The more material you dig and move the more gold you will get,the more you have to classify the less gold bearing dirt you dig so I have found that there is a miidle ground. If your digging the same spot a lot try this.One day instead of digging bank run material or from in the creek behind a rock or log or whatever, dig your tailings unless its flooded they will be there if they are there so is any of the gold you didnt recover.......if there is more there than you have recoverd in your sluice from your previous runs you will know you were losing a lot of gold..........I'm betting you will never dig your tailings again.

    Deal with some clay and crumbling shale, thats where I find the good stuff. But your right a good day I usually spend about 4 to 5 hours and I'm lucky to run 15 gal of material. Digging ,classifying, runnin it thru the sluice and panning it out right there. Gotta change things up. As long as I'm on the spot, I need to run material and pan at home. It's just sometimes ya gotta see that yeller stuff, Like a drugy gettin his fix.

    the screen size is to big. try adding smaller screen to it for better classification.
