This sluice box is 24"L x 6"W x 3" inch high sides and weighs about 4 lbs, making it a very portable sluice box. The box is a strong .080 gauge 5052 aircraft aluminum. The riffle cage is also aluminum. The main reason it is made out of aluminum is to make it light weight, plus it is easier to use a magnet to remove the black sand build up. Aluminum riffle and box will stand up to many years of use. A nice user-friendly sluice box.
The sluice box is a convenient size for carrying in your back pack. The unique elongated 45 deg z-riffle are great for trapping gold. Ribbed miner's carpet in the bottom. This sluice also available with NEW Dream Vortex Mat instead of carpet.
