How about this stuff? - Poly-fiber media used in pond filter systems and washable air filter material:  Poly-Flo, Matala Media, and EasyPro replacemant filter material.  Anyone ever use this stuff as a substitute for Miner's Moss?

the product i use has a backing that i have found a miracle solution and the vortex in the moss creates a swirl motion that pulls the cons and hopefully the gold in.This product by far beats minors moss and is a lot cheaper,plus flip over and cleans easy
I have used this product without riffles and works .I allso velcroe it in at the head of my letrap and it allways catches all . thx Paul

Found this the other day looking for a few cheap garden shovels it's a semi circle shape 24" wide at the top.  The biggest piece i can get out of it is about 5"x20". It's got the rubber backing and there was a light blue as well but out of stock. Picked it up as I am planning to build a mini sluice.

With everybody saying how expensive miners moss is, have any of you looked into buying the stuff straight from the manufacture? To cut the cost of the middle man,,. Miners moss or Nomad 8100 unbacked matting made by 3M. Is now made by Matsinc this was the answer directly from 3M via my inquiry. There term for miners http://matsinc.com/3m-nomad-unbacked-scraper-8100.html ,http://matsinc.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=1500&dir=asc&order=name or just type in 1500 in the search window on their site. I'm still waiting on a price quote.

As I didn't find miners moss in my country -after extensive search in many places that's supposed to carry them- I found this substitute matting : Chinese made PVC coil mat. And to my surprise it ain't cheap   :o ; but I have to use  it anyways. This is for my new sluice box that under construction.

Anyone have experience in using these PVC coil mats.

I bought and tried some of that, it is totally useless. I threw it away and bought some real Miners Moss off eBay.
