whens the last time you did a complete clean up on your dredge?

Post by russau on Mon Aug 15, 2016 4:59 pm

Well after getting home with Leonards 4 inch dredge that I bought ,I had promised him Id do a complete clean up and send him the results. WOW when I get done panning all of it out I try to post a picture. The area between the flair and where it connects to the alum sluice is a sweetheart of a location for gold to get trapped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Leonard had 1 of the bolts broke that have the wing nut to adjust the flairs angle and there was a additional gap there and it had paced with small flacks of gold. while I was trying to remove the flair I saw these flacks dropping out into my tube. I also beat out all the carpets in several more pieces of equipment and will pan them down as well. Im takeing pictures as I go and WOW am I impressed.............................. bounce

Russ,

Just saw this post...

SO, I guess you were "mining the miners" here? Ha. Hopefully you told Leonard "thank you"! Wink

How much did you eventually get out of that "clean up"? Got any pics?

Since I now use Vortex matting or GH matting, well............no miner's moss or carpets anymore to beat to death...

That was the agreement I made to Leonard before I even drove out to Colorado! Every nook & cranny had some gold in the equipment that I bought . I didn't do a complete cleanup of the gold , I wanted to leave him with a little to finish off the gold and I didn't take any pictures of it either , BUT he got about 1/4 OZ from all the equipment .4 in. dredge ,2 in. dredge , Mini highbanker ,Promack sluice ,gutter sluice , plus about 2 gallons of cons. It put a smile on his face when he got it!

Don't forget there was a bucket of cons in there to "boost" the gold count!!
