Good explanation Dennis and - there ain't any slamming going on here.
If there is, the Editor in Chief will gentle close the door.
It is very true that the regular size Miller Table could never do 10 lbs of
black sand per minute. But a 4 ft x 8 ft Miller Table with 8 ft being the
width and the 4 ft being the flow direction surely could do so.
Another positive for the Miller Table is that one does not need magnetic
black sands in the cons. Blond sands will do nicely, and one does not have
to fetch or buy magnetic black sand for the table.
But the best feature is the separation of fine gold down to 300 mesh size from the
black sand. The black and or blond sands are gone. No further panning or need for
a gold recovery device. And that is the feature I like best because I dislike panning!
One can take the pay dirt from the gold pan or other concentrator right to the Miller Table.
And one can classify to 20 or 30 mesh at the diggings with bucket, etc. classifiers and then
recover clean gold and platinum if present less the black sands and garnets.
One disadvantage of using the Miller Table I noticed from watching videos of people
using their tables, is that rarely do the people know how to use the Miller Table. It
does take some practice and good management.
I did put up some pictures under the Miller Table threads showing clean fine gold on
my Miller Table, but they disappeared when our pictures and files were mischievously
deleted. I will try to find them and post them again.
Thanks for the detailed explanation. I am sure the Clean Gold system has it use.
And of course a Miller Table could never be used in a large commercial operation.
At least I don't think so.
