Riffle Shapes And Design Sloped Flat Bar Riffles. In general, flat bar riffles at virtually any slope failed to generate efficient concentration vortexes and seemed to operate basically as dams to interrupt and slow the water flow just enough so that the normal gravity settling characteristics of the various particles came into play. As a result capture of heavy materials was primarily based ...

Simple Steps to Build a Sluice Box for Gold ...

Aug 14, 2016  The riffles work by creating low-pressure pockets where gold from the dirt being washed in the sluice box is collected. Gold is about 19 times heavier than pure water and roughly 16.5 times heavier than same size rock (quartz) and this makes it easy for gravity separation to take place.

Riffles and Sluice Boxes - How do they work?

Small flour gold may extend several riffles further, and, hopefully, the last few riffles have ZERO gold. If you find gold in the end of your sluicebox you surely have lost mor eout the end. The riffles are usually hinged at the upstream end, with a latch at the downstream end. So you can release the latch, and swing the riffles

It is a “separator device” that breaks layers of river sediments until gold is separated from all other materials. The box is non-moving and simply uses gravity and the flow of water. As water moves through the sluice box, rocks, small, objects, sand, and gold get trapped in different layers called riffles.

» Double-screen Classification System in Dredging

Classification is the Key to Fine Gold Recovery. It is well-established that if you want to effectively recover finer particles of gold, you must first separate them from the larger-sized materials which are being washed through your recovery system by a higher-velocity flow of water. The small-sized material can then be directed to a milder-flow of water over a shorter set of riffles.
