Welcome Russel Meahl to the group
New member in Southwest Idaho running a Gold Hog Steam Sluice
hey what's up where is all the Hogsters I just was courious to what makes your Hog unique, your hog
I also have a sluice I made from a piece of scrap aluminum from scrap yard $.80 +$8 piece of aluminum for flare, and $60 for gold hog mats. wow this this surprised the heck out of me
I LOVE my Gold Hog Mini. I added 4" in height and 4" in length to top box so I could use a 3" hose.. I run a Honda pump just above idle. and this thing will gobble some dirt..
Our "Un-Official" Hogfest has been moved to Alabama Gold Camp -- June 6th, 7th, 8th.
I use UR matting in my Keene highbanker. I have 6 riffles left from the original Keene riffle tray, and have some expanded metal in places. My best test to date was up in AK a couple years ago. In 3 days me and 2 others got about half an ounce. My unit was first with their two sluices in series below mine. We found two small pieces of gold in the second sluice and none in the third. We were working some pretty heavy clay at one point, so we think the two pieces were in some clay and were flushed through my sluice before getting washed off. Two other smaller tests had no gold leaving my sluice. I'm definitely sold on the Gold Hog matting.
My better half (Claudia) has a sluice box with the (New) following combination -- Razorback - Razorback - Downdraft - Razorback - Razorback - Downdraft. We changed sluice box from all Razorback. We haven't tried the scrubber cause most streams we have visited - we aren't able to get the velocity needed for the scrubber to work properly. We will be trying this new combination April 12 and 13 and will post update.
