Here's My Latest Piece Of Equipment That I Got Earlier This Week:bouncy:

Retirement is getting closer, and every man needs a hobby to keep busy! A local guy builds all sorts of prospecting equipment, so earlier this week, I purchased a kit and assembled during the last 3 days.

I had some clad cash saved from the past many years, and want to increase my gold this year. Luckily, there is flour gold in a river running through downtown Edmonton, and have nugget producing steams several hours away. On days where I want peace and quiet, I set up my rocker and look for flour gold. The MAX I use in Edmonton.....I run it as unstable as possible so it will growl more in areas with higher iron black sands. Then I set up my rocker or (new) sluice in those areas, as golds is also heavy and also hides in these same areas.. I have been using a rocker for years, and figured a high banker is in order!

So, with a little luck, a little skill, I can do some nugget shooting using a small coil with the MAX or ATX in the right creeks, and pull in some flour gold at home.




Here's the unit assembled.....still need to get a pump.







Here's my setup for flour gold. The highbanker is 4" x 10" and the sliuce is 8." Each will use different types of matting and riffle systems to capture as much as that fine stuff as possible. The unit cost me about $400.00 with the matting.

Below is some of the flour gold I have found in the last 25 years.

Nice addition to the ATMax, but I bet the ATMax could find more gold in 25 years than you have in the two vials.

I could enjoy sitting in a rocker on the river's bank just watching you have a bunch of fun...Heck I would even hold the jerky and a lager for you.

It is all in the fun of it!

You sure won't loose any gold with the additional sluice box at the end of the high banker. I used to dredge and high bank back in the 80's. Good luck!
