The Micro-Sluice 2 is the bigger, faster version of the successful original Micro-Sluice 1.
Only 12lbs and 25" long the Micro-Sluice 2 processes wet or dry concentrates at a rate up to 1/3 cu. yd. per hour. Recovery is typically 98% of visible gold plus 60-90% of free gold down to 200- mesh (tailings can be run a second time to test accuracy).
The included high efficiency 1250gal./hr pump uses only 3 amps x 12 VDC.This will allow 10 to 20 hours of operation on a car battery or 3-5 hours of use on a light motorcycle battery (Battery not included). Designed for heavy duty use,the Micro-Sluice 2 will provide years of reliability with either the 12 VDC pump version or with the provided hose adapter. The four aluminum mounting legs provide a sturdy and accurate means of mounting to the heavy duty 5 gallon pump/base bucket. The built-in angle indicator guarantees the correct angle of sluice and repeatable results. The innovative and unique 4-stage water recycling system uses a float mounted pump to provide a consistent flow of water to the hopper and sluice. The included screen collects all but the finest of tailings in a separate tailings bucket before recycling water back to the pump bucket. This allows extended use on 8-10 gallons of water.
During operation, the 2-qt. feed hopper is fed pre-classified concentrates by the cup. Six water jets in the hopper mix with the concentrates to form an ore slurry. The slurry flows into the sluice section through metered openings which drop mixture onto 2,000 holes in the classifier plate and into quiet water before entering the riffle section. Operated at the correct angle, up to 98% of the visible gold will be captured.
Black sand with sub-visible or "flour" gold may be collected with the Micro-Moss Extender assembly which will produce about 1 cup of "super concentrates" which may require amalgamation. In addition, use of the Heavy Duty HFBE (Highly Fluidized Bed Entrapment) vibrator is recommended for those difficult jobs.
The Micro-Sluice 2 is ideal for use in water limited areas using wet recycling. Up to 1/4 cu. yd. of material can be run with 10 gallons of water depending on soil type. The Float mounted pump and separate tailings bucket make recycling water practical!
All Micro-Sluice Gold Products are consistent as reliability is our hallmark.
Our Micro-Sluice 2 will outperform any gold wheel in terms of accuracy, speed, or value!
Micro-Sluice 2 will reduce any amount 1/3 cu. yd. of concentrates into 3 tablespoons of "super-concentrate", which will reduce final clean-up to about 5 minutes with a small gold pan.
