    Default Cheep sluice box

    I was reading the new Gold prospecters Mag. Sluice box 101 earlyer this morning. I was looking at the poop tube version. It got my attention because I just loaded an old bedliner in the back of the truck to take to the dump, I said to myself, self this might work. To my wifes dismay the bedliner was rescued and somehow get a new life. Has anyone used a sluice like this?? Any suggestions???

    An old timer way back when, use to work culverts with a plastic scoop and a bucket. he always told me who needs sluice box. All I find is critters

    I read that article also it might work as long as it does not build up.. if the water has enough pressure to wash the lighter stuff out and keep the heavies in then I see no reason why it should not work.. Justm ake sure you do not make it to wide.

    Your bed liner idea could work, I'd opt just to buy one that has been proven to work, they are not that expensive. I will post a link or two for examples. http://www.akmining.com/cart/min5106.htm http://www.akmining.com/cart/kea51.htm http://www.akmining.com/cart/kea52.htm http://www.akmining.com/cart/mimez01.htm
