I think 8n the situation you are in that the kid has the right idea, grab as much as you can in the simplest way and move on before trouble finds you, you may well leave much more than you collect but it sounds a lot safer than trying to work the site continually.

It's amazing how a simple, fresh, viewpoint can shift one's whole train of thought. 24 hrs earlier I was all stressed out about how I was going to recover the coltan from the black sands, after the table concentrates, etc, etc, Air lift them, etc, etc. ( that I had not installed yet!). And now I'm working on the optimal spacing between barren holes, so that the rocks blasted can still be small enough for the metal detector to scan for nuggets... :lol:

I like this guy's technique to clean up the "butter" at the end of a cleanup (videos 5 and 6). Videos 1-4 are his setup of cleanup sluice for concentrates.

He mentions he recirculates the last bit of concentrates, when he can't get any more gold out, back to his next sluice run. Not a bad idea at all.

It been an entertaining and interesting read and quite an exercise in mental masturbation but this isn't for real.

Haha, yea that is great. Arts 2 bucket method.
Trying to catch superfines in clay and silt slimes with a sluice/goldcube or mostly anything else out there is more than futile, painful. I suspect that if the clay portion is a relatively small % of the original ore, then it is best to wash it away at the start, before any sluice, table, or anything. The big problem is when the original ore is 90%+ clay. No idea how to handle that in a simple manner.
