Our #1 Selling Highbanker

Raptor Flare Gold Highbanker

10 years in sales and continual development and 5 versions / upgrades later the Raptor Flare highbanker is the WORLD’S best performing highbanker on the market… PERIOD.  Used by both prospectors and professional mining organizations around the world, the Raptor Flare will OUT RUN any highbanker in volume AND… capture nuggets down to super fine gold.  It’s PROVEN time and time again via controlled testing. 100% made in the USA (Georgia) we are committed to making and selling the BEST PERFORMING equipment.

Destruction Chamber vs  Spray Bars


We STRONGLY suggest you get the CLAY CLAW.  Spray bar highbankers are HORRIBLY designed. Our destruction chamber DESTROYS the dirt without soaking the operator.  The clay claw holds rocks until the are SQEAKY clean. Lift the clay claw and OUT they go.


Our #1 Selling Gold Highbanker, the Raptor Flare is the perfect size for most gold prospectors and small groups.  It can run a HUGE amount of material exceeding 100 buckets per hour.   The video below explains it all.

There have been two small changes.

Optional Add-On – SELF INSTALL

Header Box Flares – Available in the accessories 

Our header box flares are a SELF INSTALL product. Doc has made a video on how to install them and he usually only installs 2 sides while running. Only sold to Raptor Flare customers at time of purchase.

Raptor Flare 3rd tray Extension

The extension is needed for those running LARGE amounts of pay or that are in areas which mainly have SUPER fine gold. It has a combination of matting including our Motherlode mat and comes with legs and brackets.



How to install…

1) Set up your Raptor Flare like you’re about to run it.

2) Insert mat into the extension with legs attached.

3) Estimate the pitch you want to run it. (Most will run at about 9 degrees)
Overlap the two trays about 2″ and make sure the top tray (old flare box)
is gently resting on the new extension mat.

4) Drill through top hole on each side and insert bolts. Double check. Then
drill the rest of the holes.

When you first start to run you may see a little water leak out between trays, that’s normal. It’s the vortex created and why we start with a Talon mat. Eventually mud and silt will plug up those leaks. Besides… we have tested the leaking water and never found any gold.


The optional clay claw holds rocks in the header box until YOU decide to release them.

The dual zones allows for both large gold and fine gold to be caught in the same run.


Reducing 2″ water pump to 1.5″ headerbox fitting.
