Just curious about real world results, especially any differences among the models and what they recover.

Howdy Vance,
First off, the Bazooka is not a Sluice - it's a hand held Dredge that looks like a cylinder with a trap box on the bottom. The Schmidt Sluice is just that - a Sluice, but different than a conventional one. Schmidt is the inventor of the Bazooka Dredge as well. He died some years back and I'm not sure if anyone is selling his unites anymore. The Bazooka was an interesting invention, but one of the problems was that it is angle dependent. I own one of his Sluices and a Combo Unite which was given to me from him to see what I could do with the functional design. I am still playing around with it and perhaps I'll finish that project some day in the near future. Cheers.

Hey Fossicker.

Actually they are calling it the Bazooka Sluice now.  Google it & you will find it.  It's a Schmidt design just like the dredge but is just a river sluice with a gold trap rather than riffles.  They make 3 sizes , Mini, Prospector, & a larger one I can't remember the name of.  The mini & prospector looked like they might be the ticket for packpack prospecting.

Canadians can't use a Bazooka Sluice.   No

Reason - we can't dig in the creeks or river beds and send gravel and
silt downstream. Federal Department of Fisheries (DoF) controls all
fish bearing creeks and rivers and the tributaries feeding them.

new issue of lost treasure has a article about the goulde bazooka.People say it does not work well.I would have to disagree,I think its a sweet recovery device.One that Enviromentalist would favour over a floating dredge.I feel subsurface dredging would be easier to get a permit for.I am looking into getting a 5" model.

Canadians sure can use dredge's.Seen dredge permits and dredging in action,but thats not the point here.Reggie gould sells them,here is what he had to say to me.

" The prices are on my web site Gould Engineering Advanced Gold Recovery Systems under New Bazooka. The 4" is $700,00 which includes the Suction Nozzle, 5 feet of Dredge Hose, the Bazooka and the Nugget Trap with the High Powered magnet.You need to buy a 200 gpm pump 5 HP motor with intake hose and Foot valve ot strainer and 30 feet of 1-1/2" diameter supply hose rated  at 90 psi. As far as silt you would not want to put anything on the output it  would only cause a jam. The Bazooka is a sub-dredge so it sits on the bottom of the river. So the silt also stays on the bottom of the river and mostly stays there. Most people would never know you wre dredging. The conventional dredge puts the silt on the surface of the water and leaves a trail for larhge distances. The Gould-Bazooka is the most enviormental unit on the market. It is also the most effecient unit on the market, a 200 gpm pump will run the entire dredge where most dredges use two pumps. A 200 gpm pump will actually run my 5" dredge." Reggie.

I think that this style of dredge would be alot better than a convential dredge when it comes to enviromentalists.No reason why you could not get a work permit to use this device,with a reclaimation bond.
Also $700.00 dollars is not a bad price when compared to a keene 4"?I am strongly considering one,much easier to set up,costs less,less environmental impact,but might not recover fine gold as well as a keene sluice,but that wouldnt bother me,I can get fine gold anywhere,cant get the nuggets everywhere.

Hi, Vance,

I was poking around on YouTube and found this bit of video on the small unit.  I know it isn't exactly what you are looking for, but I felt more informed after watching it than I did before.  Hope this helps

Kind regards
