Damn, looks like Dream Mat is trying to steal my money again lol

He's come out with a new setup for beach sand and fine gold. Gotta think with all those small vortexes, it would be killer on the Arkansas or Clear Creek.

He also has sizes to fit the gold cube.

Finally pulling the trigger on this mini mat. I think with all the small cells, it'll kill it on the Clear Creek micron. Going with the 8" x 36" in a custom adaptable Sluice with both a power head (for reducing cons or even use on battery at A-Bar) and a stream Sluice or long Tom extension attachments.

Here's one he just made for someone else

Very nice! Where did you score the sweet box and headers?
We need to run side by side again at CC for a good test! That matting is intriguing. Work should slow down for me a little toward the end of November. I still have 4 small jobs on the books. This has been a work season like no other. whew.gif

There's a guy on Facebook who makes sluices for the dream mat. He's in Canada, so shipping will probably suck, but not a bad deal for a multi-tool Sluice. Probably won't get it for a few weeks; he's headed out hunting this week.

Ready to roll when you are! Still gotta find a good winter spot. Need to go do a recon to see if the new section of trail on the other side opens up any options.

It will be interesting to see a little version of the dream mat in action. If I ever get another sluice I will be looking at the dream mat for sure. I may get one sized for the sluice I have now. thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

If I might ask... what is the total cost for that setup?

Is this the right site? From Montana prospectors dream
I also noticed that an outfit from Australia sells it, or a version of it.

Since there are multiple entities selling it... I'm super curious as to where it is sourced. I'm guessing some type of conveyor material for the agriculture, farming, or food industry. Possibly for mechanically moving hay or processing animals? I don't want to undercut these guys but I find myself wanting to know the origin of this stuff.

It is all made by a guy in Montana, David Peterson. As far as I know he is the sole source and they are all distributors. It is designed to catch gold; not an adapted use.

The custom sluice will be $200 CANADIAN, plus shipping, WITHOUT the mat (I'll be buying it from David, hopefully with a "three time buyer" discount. lol

Ah, roger that. If I purchase I'll go through his site as well.

Really interested to see how longtomming my keene 10" (with 2.5" dredge) going down to 8". Should definitely speed things up and clear black sand. Can't wait to see how it performs at our claim, which has a LOT of black sand. We're still debating if using a 4" dredge will be effective without having to do a cleanout once an hour to keep the black sands from overwhelming the sluice. We'd end up with a large amount of cons, which will make the con reducing sluice capability invaluable. Or we just both use 2.5"s, longtommed to catch more gold.
