The Geo Highbanker did another great job getting gold in that rich flour gold patch. Our flour gold is tiny flat pieces of gold, which, with too much water flow, go right off the end of the sluice. The drop riffles on the Geo won't function properly with a lot of water flow. It requires a slow flow, small angle which allows the flat gold flakes to drop inside those drop riffles and get buried under the black sand. Probably the best retention rate I have ever experienced in my 30+ years of prospecting. The results speak for themselves. Two prospecting gigs (4hr. + 4hr.) got a total (2.1g +1.9g) 4 grams.
