I built a simple, portable recirculating gold sluice box with a total cost under $40 using reclaimed lumber I had on hand, a few pieces of plumbing, a water pump and a sluice mat.Your own cost will vary depending on what materials you already have on hand. I already had the lumber, buckets and water container laying around.I got a 208 gph aquarium pump from HF. I found a piece of scrap PVC pipe in my garage. And I used an old bucket and a pot from a plant. I had to purchase some fittings to connect the water pump to the PVC pipe. And the sluice mat I got from ebay.First I put holes in buckets and put them into a larger container for the water to flow through. Then I built the frame for the sluice box and cut the sluice mat in half. This will give me a 50 inch long by 6 inch wide sluice box. You can make yours any size you want.I wanted mine longer to catch the black sand as well as the gold because I want to keep the black sand for projects I have planned.Next I put together the plumbing and then built a base for the sluice box. I made it portable and easily adjustable.It is working quite well. I am very happy with the results.Thanks for watching.Thanks for watching.TroyMichigan Prospectorshttps://michiganprospectors.com-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Note: Copying this video, in part or in full, is a violation of copyright unless the user has express permission from the owner.
