The Le Trap Highbanker features a 40" long x 16" wide sluice made of light weight, wear-resistant, high impact ABS plastic. The riffles are designed with a two-step ramp which allows the sluice to recover fine gold without vibrating or the use of carpet, matting, or miners moss. Clean lines and the lack of any removable riffles or carpet allow for very quick clean up. Most gold is caught within the first 4-5 drop riffles.
You might know the Le’Trap Sluice Box by the name River Robber when it was first made in Canada; it is now made in the USA from the original mold design. Comes with a heavy duty stand, high banker top with angle support, nozzles, hose, water adjuster and an 1100 gpg pump which really makes the water fly. Weighs about 22 pounds total. Available in blue or green. FREE SHIPPING in the continental USA.
OPTION: Add a 4 ounce bottle of flocculent to your purchase (see drop down menu at top) and ensure clear water for all of your re-circulation needs. Floc lets you work material longer without having to constantly change out the water due to sediment build-up that destroys pumps and robs gold on the first pass. Just minutes after adding to your water, all the mud, clay and dirt coagulates and drops to the bottom of your recirculating tub. DO NOT OVER USE. A little Geo Clear goes a long way. Add just 1 gram per 5 gallons of water. Geo Clear allows you to run clear looking water through your unit. It also keeps gold from washing through your system.
NOTE: Flocculent is NOT the same as Jet Dry. Many gold miners use Jet Dry to break the surface tension of the water so gold doesn’t float. Jet Dry is a surfactant commonly used with spiral wheels, miller tables and bowls. Flocculent is a chemical compound that takes particles all the way down to colloidal and pulls them out of suspension. It combines everything together and then that debris drops to the bottom leaving mostly clear water.
