    Reckon what ya think this stuff was?

    I know what it's gonna be, lol

    It ain't exactly just rubber, almost like rubberized felt or something. Doesnt look like conveyor, maybe some form of intustrial rug?

    Maybe 1/2" thick, with 3/8" grooves. I got two pieces 18"x72" for 12 bucks at a resale shop. Seemed like a fun thing to try making a 12 foot sluice from, and a good way to empty some beer cans.

    If it gets fuzzy it will probably be hard to clean but the profile is right for fine gold capture.
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    I could believe it's for horses.. came fron that kind of area. It actually makes a nice door mat too. There was a tarish booger stuck to it, so I had to slice a chunk off, the short piece seems to work good for that.

    Once I got it scrubbed up and clean, it doesn't really look like felt anymore, more like compressed rubber bits. It isn't really fuzzy or pourus, and I wouldn't expect much difficulty rinsing it out.

    Think it could be okay for a section of a long beach sluice? Worth a try?

    Tryin to decide between this, and a big piece of vortex mat for a second stage after my LeTrap.

    Kind of wanted the vortex since it should limit the lateral movement in the riffles, and I wont have to be concerned with losing material off the sides and sealing to avoid it.

    I would think they would like different angles too, and I only wanted two stages right now.

    So many possibilities, lol.
