    We installed the new gold hog matting yesterday. We installed it into the Highbanker and ran all of the concentrates we had and everything else we had left over from all of our trips. We set it up with a letrap sluice below it and put the material through just as fast as we could. After running everything through and panning it out there were only two flakes of micron gold in the entire letrap. Out of the letrap was about a half a pan of black sands and out of the gold hog matting was maybe five or six table spoon fulls of black sands and maybe one tablespoon of light gravel less than 1/4 inch . We set up our matting with one piece of UR mat, three Razorback, and two more UR. Each are six inches in length and were pretty easy to put together after watching the video on the website. I'm sold. If I'm not running in heavy gravel I will be running the matting and I will be making a mat that is meant for heavy gravel. Just my two cents and a minor review. Cost for two thirty six inch lengths of mat to be cut into six ten inch sections...... $90. easy cleanup and peace of mind for gold recovery, priceless.

    I just got mine going too with a RB mat......my sluice is only 7.5"x24" w/ 2000gph pump and while i haven't gotten over the gold yet i put 10 micro size pieces of lead in about a third of a five gallon pail of concentrate classified down to 1/4" and almost everytime i recover all 10 micro pieces (smaller than birdshot)...... my final cons from the mat is considerably less than the expanded metal/rug setup...... I am super sold on this gold hog mat.
    If anybody had a 7.5" piece of Gold Hog UR Mat and would like to trade it for a 7.5" piece of Gold Hog Razorback mat i would be there
    or if someone would like to sell a 7.5" piece of UR Mat that would work too.....
    Cleanup is so fast now....I love it.

    I have a A52 with Razorback matting and Gold Hog's sluice stand. I really like the stand it find it easy to adjust. First time using the mat was out at GPAA's Nancy's gold claim. I was able to set up the sluice very quickly because of the stand and location being so ideal. Here is a link to a video I took while there.
    .
    The matting really likes very fast water speed and if you do not have the right speed the matting doesn't seem to work as well as it should. I was having difficulty yesterday setting up the sluice right at Mineral bar because of constantly changing water level due to the wind and there being no good place to set up correctly. Plan to work the ~2 cups of cons I have here in a little bit. I know I was in a pretty good spot because every test pan was showing several colors.
    I am really curious about getting a couple of bilge pumps to help make sure I am getting the right amount water and flow when conditions arent ideal. Just dont know what the legalities of "power sluicing" while the sluice is in the water.

    Well. I ran a bunch of buckets (30 5 gal.) through an a51a sluice with RB and one section of scrubber. I used 2 1200 gph pumps and set the and to about 1.5"/ft. I was backpacking so no, I didn't test the tailings, but so far in a little light cleaning I've found a little -50 specks and another speck that is attached to a -20 piece or iron. I have yet to go through the +20 or -100. The mats seemed to work but I think we just weren't on the gold that weekend.

    Finally got the time to finish cleaning. Nothing more at +20 or -20 but there was about 5 specks of -100 flour. It does tell me that the matting is catching -100 gold though. So, even though we didn't get much we know it works. Time to plan another trip out!

    Does anyone have any tip for this mat.

    What are you guys using.
    I am using the setup 6" by 2' sluice changed into turf builder highbanker. This is my findings of 2 hours high banking and 3 hours sluicing at a very slow pace... I'm not sure how the sizes are but its a 1 oz vial if that helps

    I have a stream sluice that is 30" long (without the flair) by 10" wide. The first 6" is a fine rubber matting before the riffles and carpet start. I am looking to upgrade to Gold Hog matting and was wondering if i should start it after the fine mat that is currently there or remove it and start it right after the flair?

    I am undecided if i should use straight RazorBack or add in a couple of strips of UR. The material I am running is producing some pretty fine gold that I want to make sure I capture. Thoughts?

    I am using a mini highbanker sluice that is 8"x 24" and i switched over to razorback with a little piece of matting like you have in yours for where the water drops down out of the hopper.... But the 750 GPH pump i had was just too slow to keep the mat active and i went out and bought a 2000GPH pump and angled about 2" a foot ....... this setup does extremely well on all tests i have conducted with tiny specks of lead and i have no intention of switching back to the expanded metal setup

    I have gold hog matting in my homemade High banker, I used the scrubber matting all the way down, four 10 inch sections together. They worked just fine with my slower 750 gph pump. I got some fine gold due to the mats ability to catch it.Here are a couple of pictures that you may be able to tell the mat works. I found that a better flow would speed things up for me but I may loose the gemstones, My highbanker is setup to classify everything to 3/8 inch or less. This is a great product.Click image for larger version.

    Nice little setup! I wish I was able to use a pump here. To bad it's illegal. It would be so nice to have consistent flow.
