    Safety box? Catch box?

    Hello everyone!

    Many moons ago someone posted on a thread about a small box that you can make to place at the end of a sluice to see if you are loosing gold. For the life of me I cannot seem to find the thread or remember the name of the box. Anyone?

    Thanks in advance!

    These links address recovery not loss but may be what you are looking for. Looking for this thread on Fine Gold Trap at the end of a dredge.. http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/go...uipment-3.html
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Put a pan out in front to catch some tailings for testing.

    There was a fluid bed attachment posted by Goodyguy. Is that what you are looking for?

    I built one of those GoodGuys fluid bed traps for my 2.5 dredge, it might work if you very carefully dial in the water pressure and spoon feed it classified material but with the flow of material off the end of a dredge sluice there isn't much hope of fines getting into that trap. In retrospect a total waste of time.
