    Angus Mackirk Monster Sluice Opinions (leave your 5 gallon buckets at home)

    I am interested in high production sluices. I have unlimited bucketloads of material, I don't crevice in my areas. I do beach gold and bar gold.

    Does anyone find theirs to be too big or overkill? Waterflow is of no concern as it will be a highbanker.

    I'm just sick of babying my feed, and worrying if the whole shovel load falls in at once. I want to just dump it shovel by shovel and want the riffles to clear faster and I want it to have a cup holder and...

    Any regrets, pros, cons of AM Rocky Mountain, Boss, Eureka, Great Northern Canadian?

    I am REALLY interested in a Great Northern Canadian due to it breaking down for transport and riffle real estate.

    Thanks guys

    -Kyle

    For really high shovel volume take a look at the Bazooka Goldtrap Miner. Guys have made high banker setups for bgt sluices and you'd be leaving classifying and riffles in the past! Shovelful at a time? NO PROBLEM MON!

    Haha you and your BGT's! I can tell you are a die hard BGT'r. My friend bought one, medium size, I LOVED the topside of it, I just wish it had a clear window to see WTH is going on in there! I guess it's a solid contender, and I do love the concept. And I can't deny that I want one in my arsenal. I saw a HUGE one in Placerville Hardware (oldest running business west of Mississippi) for like $400! :drool:

    That was a nice big hole you dug in the other thread. What kid of waders are you using!? Haha. You aren't afraid to jump right into the action!

    What can I say. I have an Angus Mackirk Expedition too. It's a good sluice, better than most but the Bazooka guys are in a whole other league. That $400 version is the Miner I bet. Just what you need if you are swinging multiple shovels... I do wear chest waders and often end up in 3 foot deep water as that is how far down the bedrock is where I'm working :-) Digging is good therapy for me, I love it!

    ...oh and you don't need to see what's going on in the trap, just what comes out of it ;-)

    Placerville Hardware is a wonderful resource for those in the El Dorado County, CA area.. Albert is a wealth of information. As far as a $400 miner, you can purchase a 48" Miner (the largest we make) from us directly for $315.00. Like Kevin said, it's more about what cleans out of the trap.. Spend your time running material with the confidence that you're getting your gold.

    Hey Kyle, in my opinion the bgt is worth the few extra bucks, I was thinking about am drop riffles for affordability but taking it out of the stream or shutting down the high banker to clean it out every time the riffles fill up with black sand didn't sound fun to me, oh and not a fan of classifying either so went with the bgt and no regrets! Got the supermini and the 36" prospector. Have only used the 36" on my recirc set up it ran very well, ate material as fast as I could feed it and didn't demand any more flow than metal riffle carpet sluice so Im happy about that. In the stream the supermini easily took the place of my a52, I love seeing the gold dance down the slightly textured slick plate as I feed it and when it comes to clean out on the supermini the trap doesn't hold a whole lot of cons so when you get it in the pan you can see the gold before you even start panning it down, love it! Just got my best picker yet this last Saturday, so good in size was able to pick it up off of the supermini slick plate in swift water, but that's a story for another thread, anyway Kyle if you go with the bgt it will perform as you need it to and you'll probably never need another sluice again

    Awesome thanks guys! I used to live in Placerville, right above the Weber Creek Bridge on Green Valley. I regret not working that area under the bridge, but it has been worked enough im sure.

    Yeah I met Albert years ago, i havent seen him in my last few visits. The younger guy maybe 30? curly hair? I think thats him, great guy! I think I'll be getting a bazooka now The only thing better than tossing dirt in a hopper is tossing dirt onto a sluice at ground level!

    I used to go to Placerville 4-6 times a year for work...too bad it was before I started prospecting and mud flinging. Hope to be going back some day not for work but for play!

    Isn't this kind of like throwing one of your dealers under the bus ?

    If you want to shovel and your highbanking anyhow. Then the G1 or G2 by usprospector.com will work for what you want. Shovels at a time, classifies and retains the finest gold.

    Action,

    Actually.. No. Turns out it must of been misinformation because Placerville Hardware is selling them for MSRP, and not higher.
