Wow, great job and rig Greywolf!  {cool^sign}

Wonder if you could make those riffles as retrofits for other sluices?
And what about the green paint? Do you think the paint surface will grab and hold onto the fine micron gold?

Hello Grey Wolf
What is the width of your sluice?
How many gallons per minute for the step riffles?
Looks like a nice set up.
Thanks

Yup, could make those riffle setups for any sluice box configuration, would need to know the width, length, as well as any obstruction along the sides of sluice box and what type of clamp latches and position of same.
Not sure if the paint traps, basically took the riffle pattern from the demo video, and angled the back a little differently, to give a better trapment area, took a few tries to find what worked best in the Plexiglas sluice box, great little device for finding things out.  The paint is more to be able to see gold and black sand, itís a heavy duty industrial paint, high wear stuff, good for a long time.

The width of that particular sluice box highbanker is 8 inches, found that with that setup 25-30 gpm works about the best, and then if you want to use it to reconcentrate your concentrates again, slow the water down to 20 gpm and raise the back end 2 inches, little different slope and water speed, really cleans up everything into a couple of cupfuls of concentrates, run it though your classifying screens and real simple to pan what is left for concentrates, down quickly................Guest
