    Moses,
    The adhesive used on the GGT is a very high strength solvent bond that actually melts into the material, created especially for bonding ABS. Waterproof and used for welding pressurized water tanks (just one of its applications). The bond on most parts are applied on both sides as well as all contact points. Sometimes you may see a small surface gap in adhesive, but there will be bonding at contact points and often opposite surface. We've got units that have had extreme use for months with no issues. If there is any issue with your sluice or if it was damaged in shipping, send it back and we will replace it and cover shipping.

    Thank you for the response and info! Most of the gold here in tennessee is the fine stuff that likes to work itself into the tiniest of gaps. Some of the gaps / cracks on the deck and around the riffles look like gold could get into and be hard to remove. You sound really confident on the overall structural integrity. I could fill the spots myself with some glue or jb weld and still be able to take it out on its maiden voyage this weekend.

    you can paint abs glue along the seam or use M.E.K and a brush it will seal the gaps

    My first attempt included a tube of clear resin. Even though I bought it from the ABS supplier it wasn't suitable for the job. It was brittle. The solvent worked better.

    if your gonna use glue use the black stuff.

    Another excellent seam filler is a mix of 50/50 acetone and abs shavings

    I ran maybe three buckets the whole day. only three because the material is a collection of rusted, concreted together rocks, dense clay, and decomposing bedrock. its extremely hard to break up to say the least.
    once the gold was in the riffles i never saw a piece get washed out. i'm not sure if this is because i was running classified material or because of how i had it set up. it was hard to get some of the gold out of the first gap on my clean-up. i will glue that and a few other spots to make the next clean out easier. i'll post a pic of the final take once i pan it out.

    It took me a bit to feel comfortable in doing it, but we've been cleaning out the riffles after every bucket the last few times out, and it's nice to see new gold in the riffles and know we're still in good gravel. The first couple times doing it though were tough. I just knew that gold was washing right back out into the river, but it showed up in the box!

    Nice looking gold Moses! So heres the trick when you want to clear the sample riffles when you are running materials. Wave your fingers through the water above the riffles and they will clean out. The waving action above creates enough turbulent flow to blow out most of what is in the riffles - then you can run more material and see if you are still in the pay streak. I also do this before a cleanout.

    If you want to seal the first and last gap (outside of riffles) you can use clear silicone sealant - Home Depot and Lowes carry 2.8 oz. tubes. Works great and is easy to seal those small gaps and smooth out after application. Just give it 24 hrs for good cure time.

    That's my fear as well with the assay portion, to be honest my plan at first was to just pave it over and use it like I normally do. The more of you miners that use it and become more comfortable with that aspect of the sluice eases my concern each time; I'll give it a shot when I get one. But to be brutally honest I'm usually too busy digging to look at the things. Thanks for the report, that is indeed some nice gold for the amount of dirt you are moving! Shovel faster! LoL

    Nice looking photo shoot, but I don't know about the empty pans. How about some gold in there
