Vey nice looking sluice minkos61!!!  {cool^sign}

You going to put some matting or miners moss in it?

hmmm......What if under the existing expanded metal you ran a smaller strip of expanded? would it help ensure entrapment of the fine stuff?

Hi seeker thanks for the come back. Yup putting ribbed matting before riffles then miners moss under expanded metal. As far as putting smaller expanded under the other expanded have to give it a try (yuh never know!) Thanks for the imput Ernie

Nice sluice build Minkos61, good to hear you've done your homework. The 15deg. will give a nice vortex. The only thing I'm curious about is the direction you chose to run your expanded?

Thanks bcdigger . The expanded was a blunder built it before enough research will be rectaphide when new riffles are built.

I like your sluice looks good just about  the same as mine.I had the same riffle system and that didnt work worth a bean so I changed it so the l edge was a tent with center pointing up 45 degree slope works like a hot dam now.I use rib rubber first,rib carpet next then 2 bays of expanded metal and carpet. Iallso opend up the end riffle. now i am making a boilerbox for it

Well I just built a new riffle system from greywolf design, 1/2 inch flat bar at 3 inch spacing set at 30 degrees forward. this i put over  drywall rain screen, no expanded metal,My sluice is about the same as yours, nice job you did. I have built a boiler box that fits the sluice and works great pUT SOME RUBBER IN AFTER YOUR SLICK PLATE CHEERS MYGRAIN

nice looking but I would suggest that you run the expanded metal the other way.
