10" X 36" Combo Dream Mat
Haven't had a chance to use it yet, to much snow in south east Idaho. Thinking of making a recirculating unit to use on the patio when it warms up just a bit. I will resubmit when It's done.
Definitely captures material. More cons than my riffled matting. On my first time out with this mat in Arizona, I saw visible gold in the mat.
I absolutely love it. I use it every single time that I go out now, and before this, I was catching very little and I mean VERY little. This mat catches everything, in my A-51 Sluice Box. I honestly can not believe how well it works. I live in Colorado, and we have very small flour gold and flakes, but I was only catchin fly 💩 before this mat. My only issue with it, was it was slightly too large for my box and I had to shave it quite a bit, so it would fit (definitely much better than being too small!). In that process, it is very hard to get exactly straight and I now have spots that are slightly open on the sides for tiny materials to get under the mat. That has honestly not hurt me at all though. It is just annoying, and I am kicking myself for not doing a better job.
I recommend this to everyone, professional, beginner or even just prospecting different areas. The amount of cons are unbelievable. After running 3 to 5- 5 gallon buckets through the sluice, I only have about 2 cups of heavy cons and I can do my cleanup right there in the creek and not have to wait till it’s convenient at home.
Whoever made this design, is an absolute genius!!!
I was close to the point of giving up on the metro Denver area, but this has changed that and it only took one trip, to do so. I’ve used it now, about 5 or 6 times and each time, I have found more than I ever had, in any other setup.
The adventure sluice is perfect for doing quick sampling in new areas and for cleanups at home. It just came in this past Friday and worked amazingly on Saturday!
Keep up the amazing innovations!!!
I can’t wait to see what the future holds!!!
