"Finding Gold With a Sluice"," If you have access to water, one of the most effective ways of finding gold is to use a Sluice.
Mostly made from Aluminum, Wood or Plastic sluicing is a vital part of your prospecting.
I personally started Sluicing a while back, trying to find the correct water flow and angle to achieve optimal conditions for gold recovery can be a very daunting task.
Though as you will find out using a Sluice is very simple.
Most come with a handle or a backpack for easy transport while on foot and are also light weight since they are built from aluminum.
When running your sluice you want to make sure there is ripple effect on the surface of the water when traveling over each riffle.
This swirl of water will deposit heavier material and wash away lighter material if all is set correctly.
The larger the material the more drastic of an angle you will need.
If you will be running these larger pieces of rocks through your sluice you will have to pick out the rocks that get stuck in your box by hand.
The successful gold miner must factor in things like how fast water is flowing, how dense is the material you are running through (has it been classified first?) and finally the angle or slope that you set the box at.
