    Bazooka gold trap mini

    Tested the mini model of the BGT. I was told you can't have too much flow but apparently I overdid it. Put 1 super small flake in with some dirt I got from the creek and it didn't hold it. Just wanted to try it. It does need a good flow just don't kill it. I do recommend this line of products as it holds even the super small stuff without classifying hats off to Todd! Experience will make you a happy prospector

    Thank you fuseboxxx for posting your test results! Would you happen to have a picture of the water as it went down the sluice? I'm hoping that next year I will have a chance to use my super mini and if it is possible I would like to see what I should not do. But, picture or not thank you for your input...........................63bkpkr

    BGT has a youtube video showing flow over a Super-Mini



    Nobody's ever said anything about it, but I believe that the water across the top should flow over the grizzly for it to work properly.

    OK! Check the video out a bit more. What are the two, I will call them clips, near the input end of the BGT on the left and right side walls? Is that a fixture for legs? Something that keeps it from slipping off the rocks? An explanation please......................63bkpkr

    I know he says they are there but with my ears I can not make out what he says they are for.

    Listened the best I could with my ear, and about all I can make out is that he added
    some clips on the sides..purpose, unknown?

    They look like copper (easily bendable) and while they could be for stabilizing
    the sluice, I don't see any legs extruding from those clips.

    Another mod I did is put 1/4" square fencing over the grizzly. It keeps out the flat rocks so you catch more fine gold. The downfall is the bigger rocks don't go over it as smoothly so ya have to clear it more often

    Like the clip mod looks simple and effective going to have to do the same to my super mini, the clips used in the video are called copper hold rites used for plumbing if anyone is wondering what to ask for at the hardware store

    I just bought my Bazooka Prospector yesterday. I can not wait for it to arrive. I'll be in the river on the White Mountians even in the cold.
    Thank you all for all the tips...

    Cool... your going to love it. Just an FYI the only problem I have ever had was it took like twice as long to ship than they told me. Other than that BGT are awesome.

    Delays in shipping were an issue but it seems like lately they've ramped up production because they are shipping pretty quickly now...guess they figured out their product was getting popular!
