This sluice box is 24"L x 6"W x 3" inch high sides and weighs about 4 lbs. The box is a strong .080 gauge 5052 aircraft 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. The sluice box is a convenient size for carrying in your back pack, and is very user-friendly.
The bed of the sluice contains 16 inches of the NEW Vortex Dream Mat! Over the years you may have tried many different types of mats, carpets, riffles, and miners moss, but Dream Mat was inspired solely to help prospectors work less to get more gold!
This blue/gray color Vortex Dream Mat is the first sluice mat ever to be scientifically engineered and designed using advanced fluid dynamic principles and physics. The mini Hydro-Cyclone inspired vortex cells classify, separate, capture and hold gold naturally. Dream Mats vortex cells exploits natures own forces in a patented system to bring the finest gold recovery ever created. These mini cells are engineered to capture the finest of gold without needing huge amounts of water to maintain good exchange. This mini cell system is designed for classified feeds — 8 mesh is a good screen size, but you can of course screen lower if desired. Big gold can be caught easily in just about any system. Bigger gold is really heavy and Dream Mat captures and holds the bigger gold in its vortex holding cells, just like it does with fine gold.
