Sometimes called a power sluice, a highbanker is a very flexible piece of equipment when you're gold mining in areas with a good amount of water. This highbanker setup, which is made in the USA, includes everything you need.
Sluice with Stand: 10" wide x 48" long x 3" high is made out of strong .080 gauge 5052 aircraft aluminum, which is light weight, plus aluminum makes it easier to use a magnet to remove the black sand build up. Aluminum riffle cage and box will stand up to many years of use! The unique elongated 45 degree z-riffles are great for trapping gold. In the bottom of the sluice is 12 inches of black matting for fast gold ID, followed by 36 inches of miner's carpet. Expanded metal riffles helps keeps the gold in the box and prevents the rocks from knocking it loose. Sluice stand has 18" high legs.
Hopper Dredge Box: Aluminum hopper box is 14" x 14" x 10" deep and has a 2" dredge inlet, a spray bar with built-in adjustable water flow and pressure port controls. Grizzly bars inside the hopper keep out big rocks and sticks and other debris.
