Awesome! You just inspired me to go out and try again today. (My last day off for 7 days.)

I'm seeing gold as far as the fifth riffle down the sluice box. Was there any below that? The third, forth, and fifth seem to have nearly equal amounts, and some of those amounts look kinda chunky!

Have you panned any tailings to see if any of the finer gold is slipping past the riffles?

Is that a MacKirk sluice?

Yep, mackirk it is. Seems to work fine for me. That pic was taken the first run, and i had ran real fast just to see what would happen. I was impressed, even at full throttle with a 1200 gph AC sump pump, 90% of the gold was in the first half of the sluice. I recombined the material and ran it again(much slower)and recovered virtually all the gold.( the 3 cents of gold left, wasn't worth the time spent lookin for it)
