This unit is a commercial grade sluice box, with 4 feet of vortex plates which allows extremely fine gold particles more opportunities to 'drop out' of the water flow and collect in the gold wells, and also allows longer duration between clean outs. This sluicebox is easy to set up, easy to use and is a full foot wide. Constructed of the toughest 7075-T6 aircraft alloy aluminum and stainless steel, it has been designed for serious gold recovery operations and all day use, day after day with minimum wear. This unit comes bare bones without a water source attachment.  As with the smaller sluice boxes, it is equally adept at processing large quantities of raw materials (classified to 1/2") or just concentrates.   12" wide, 60 inches long, 3" deep.  Weighs about 33 pounds. Virtually any mining application can be served by this unit.

MANUFACTURER'S INFORMATION ON PUMP (NOT INCLUDED):  Water flow through the sluice should be between 2 and 8 gallons per minute per inch width of sluice. A 6 inch sluice should have a water flow of 12 and 30 gallons per minute. The water flow should not go below this. And a 12” sluice should have 24 to 96 gallons per minute supplied.

Once the desired angle and level are established for the sluice, you will want to adjust your water flow. The flow is in the proper range when particles in the vortex pockets show circular motion. To do this you should set the water flow rate low, add a few scoops of dirt, then while watching the Gold Well pockets, slowly increase the flow rate UNTIL you see the material in the Gold Wells begin to rotate. This then will be the minimum water flow that you want to maintain in your Gold Well Sluice for proper operation. The water flow volume will be different for different materials. If the bulk of the material you are processing is light, you may want to run enough through the sluice first to get some heavy black sands built up, then adjust your water flow for the black sands, not the lighter silicon dioxide sands (generally the light colored sands).
