The Le Trap Sluice Box is a highly efficient gold recovery tool that is known for its lightweight design and ability to catch both fine gold and large nuggets. It measures 40″ long by 16″ wide and weighs less than 4 pounds, making it easy to backpack. The sluice can be ordered with or without the top cut, allowing it to be used in high banker or trommel setups or in a stream. The unique design of the sluice allows it to work effectively with slow or fast water flow. The flared riffle design slows water flow to create a low pressure area for gold to drop, resulting in optimum gold recovery. The textured surface also makes gold recovery easier.
