Gday guys finally tested my bazooka highbanker and it worked pretty well.  Was able to clear a full 20L bucket in 2-5 minutes depending on the material being sluiced. With a few adjustments to the spray bar could speed that up too. Caught some nice gold from a small mullock heap from super fine to small pickeBazooka highbanker at work 20160913

Hi RS ,
I'd like to hear more of what you are doing   Smile  the poor response you have received is caused by the limited type of prospectors on this site ,  most just use detectors only .

Good Luck
Jack .

Gday guys I have been a little slow in finishing washing the concentrates right off but I did see some nice pieces will post pictures soon. I basically set my sluice up next to a flooded mine and had it recirculating back into it whilst running a mullock heap through it. Was my first time trialling the highbanker and have some good ideas to improve it to get better and more even flow.

That is a good show of gold for only 2 hours you done will cheers cheers . I did read on one of the American gold forums TreasureNet.com that the bazooka gold sluice works best if the water is above the grizzly bars sum thing to do with the baffle in the Fluid Bed but yours seems to catching gold just fine. Keep use updated on any improvements will done.
