Hello all I’m a fairly novice gold prospector and my current setup is a stock Keene a52 sluice and I know I losing gold. For the most part I’m not worried about it but I’m going out to find gold not give half of it back. I know it could be I’m not setting up my sluice correctly but I’m considering a few other options for better gold recovery. One is converting my sluice box to hog mat setup which I know be better. Another is a grizzly gold trap fluid sluice and from what I’ve seen they work pretty good. My only concern with the fluid sluice is how does it do with clay? The clay is not super thick but it does clump together after classifying. Another thing I was thinking about is has anyone ever thought about or tried using a scrubber or V matting in the fluid sluice to help break up clay.
