    I dont think you can go wrong with the Bazooka in that case.

    I've heard they work on flour gold and I've also heard they don't
    The only one I have tried is one that I made myself and it was way too wide (14") for the water flow that was available the day I tested it out.

    I have made another narrower version (10") but I haven't had the chance to test it out yet. I'm sure they will catch fine and flour gold if the water speed is right and if they're fed properly classified material.

    The thing is.... I'm so happy with the way my fluid bed sluice catches the flour gold and doesn't require any classifying that I rarely use anything else as a stream sluice.

    Thanks for the input. I am seriously thinking more about one of the Bazooka Gold Traps. That is unless you are going to start making and selling yours?

    Thanks but I'm retired and don't want another job besides wondering where my next prospecting spot will be

    Most of the gold I find is sitting directly below my punch plate. I actually made the punch by drilling all the holes. A pre made piece would sure be faster. What is nice about this design is when you have your water flow correct there is no classifying below potato sized rocks. I even found a nugget, and it was caught in the first riffle after the punch plate ends. If you would prefer to buy one look up the Calsluice. My home made box:My fine gold sluice Calsluice: . One cool tid bit showed for a split second on the calsluice vid is a sluice viewer which can be made out of most any clear plastic.It allows you to look under the water ripples like goggles. In fact goggles work too =)

    Thanks Jack!

    The one I built similar to that lost a bit of flour gold during testing and I ended up using the punch plate on another project.
    I like the concept though, so maybe I'll go back to the drawing board and see if I can correct the problem.

    Could have been that I used a shallow v groove mat instead of deep groove. Maybe this time I'll use the vortex (conveyor) mat instead.

    Take a look at Keene's fast water riffles. They are a bit taller and designed for dredges. When you get into the under-over style sluice some modifications should command some attention. I run my sluice several ways, and it depends on the water flow, time of year etc. When the river runs fast I run tall riffles and my punch plate. I feed my sluice with a shovel. I don't classify at all. In the middle of summer when the river is weak, I classify and use a little garden shovel to feed my box out of classified buckets. Just depends on the water flow =)

    I agree ... water flow dictates the method
