We STRONGLY recommend you visit our website before ordering. Watch the videos and learn about the mats.
These mats are 6" long are sold in 36" wide sections and are cut by you, the customer.
Please watch the how to cut and install video before ordering to make sure you are comfortable with this process.
Let’s explain how we do this and each function of the mat.
(Get ready for your head to hurt.)
Yes, we used every part of the mat to serve a purpose.
A- Small “V” grooves slightly slow down very heaviest of material before the lifting phase. Prevents “launching them” into the upper layers.
B- Gentle lift ramp. Not a sharp riffle or edge. This allows us to gently lift bottom material slightly without “throwing it” upwards.
C- Leveling ramp. Allows the heavies to now be traveling straight down the bed, vs. traveling upwards. Kind of like driving off a cliff vs. using a RAMP to jump a row of trucks. (That’s scientific redneck stuff.)
D and E- Combination of gravity drop ledge and gentle vortex. Gold will immediately fall downward, and a gentle vortex will assist the heaviest materials downward. The “V” grooves allow open cleaning to remove light material. Gold now sitting on these grooves, is no longer in the “full current” of the water flow.
F- Miniature riffles. These mini riffles help catch finer gold particles that didn’t make the “fall” of the first ramp. They are pulled downward and stored in the wash holes.
g- Settling steps. These reverse angled steps once again settle material allowing gold to hold and fall into settle gaps.
