Gold Hog - How to Install Sluice mat

How to install Gold Hog sluice mats.

There are SEVERAL WAYS to install and use the sluice mats.
Each person will have to vary the install based on their own equipment, spacing and ability to modify if needed.  However, once done, most find the effective gold recovery rate increases greatly. 

All our mats are 36" WIDE and 6" long.
This can be confusing.
The customer cuts the matting to their sluice width and assembles their
mat to the proper length.  ALL our mats interchange with common
interlocking male and female ends.
