MotherLode Sluice Mat ™- New for 2017

The Talon Sluice Mat -
DownDraft Mat ™
The DownDraft mat has been under development for over 6 months. Doc believes it is one of our best mats when it comes to having a broad spectrum of velocity capabilities. It can be used in everything from a stream sluice, all highbankers, up to mid size dredges. A GREAT mat for fine gold recovery.
Scrubber Mat ™
The Scrubber mat (Patent Pending) is a low turbulence, but
aggressive scrubbing mat. It is design to be used anywhere in the sluice box
but works very well "up top" and helps break up clay and dirt releasing gold
and heavy metals.
Let’s explain how we do this and each function of the mat.

Little Hog (UR Mat) -
The UR mat is great under header boxes.
Made from extruded EPDM rubber, the mat is heavy, durable, and can withstand
commercial sluice boxes in all temperature zones.
The Gold Hog ® Razorback ™ Medium Velocity Mat - Designed to work with sluices in a wide range of water flows. This includes stream sluices that often have trouble creating water speed need for our other mats. Testing has gone EXTREMELY well in highbankers.
Finally.... a Gold Hog® mat for dredges.
Introducing the River Hog™
The RiverHog sluice mat is designed for deeper water sluices such as dredges and commercial ops. However, one great feature is the ability to "trim" the large riffle to the operator's flow rate. So, it can be adjusted and used in a wide variety of products. We have even tested this mat in our mini highbanker with great results. A VERY aggressive face pattern uses a large riffle to cause traditional "flow interruption vortexes". The drop chambers and the PRE-RAMP grooves catch gold often before it even hits the riffle. We recommend that this mat be used in combination with the Scrubber and Razorback or even UR mat in most dredges. Offering VARYING SURFACES is the key to great gold recovery.
The Gold Hog® Bedrock 2.0 Hybrid Sluice Mat
NEWLY redesigned for 2014, the Bedrock 2.0 mat is an AMAZING new mat. Will work in everything from a stream sluice to large commercial plants. Flow must be tuned for best performance. It creates almost ZERO turbulence and is great on fine gold.

The New WASHER MAT (The Finisher)
