3 Stack Deluxe
When deciding which Gold Cube (3 stack deluxe or 4 stack) there just a couple of factors to consider; one may be the price, another may be the size footprint and the other is the type of gold you may encounter. As many gold prospectors with the typical sluice box have witnessed, very flat gold (glitter gold) has a tendency to drift or sail over riffles. This is because the shape lends itself well to slight current manipulation and water surface tension which allows gold to literally float. The Gold Cube has a built in design to eliminate surface tension called the “G-Force Separator” which forces everything underwater and under a gate, breaking surface tension and forcing the heavier gold to the bottom of an axial trough. This force is gravity and hydraulic pressure making it impossible for the gold to float or sail.
Gold Cube Three Stack Deluxe
• 1 Water Tray, 2 Vortex Trays
• Custom adjustable stand (Zinc plated)
• 11oo GPH 12 volt pump, hose and fitting
The Gold Cube can can process tons of concentrates into mere ounces. With a 12-volt battery (not included) you're ready to clean up your concentrates QUICKLY! The Gold Cube is small and consists of stacking trays made of indestructible plastic LDPE (low density polyethylene) that's as thick as a cutting board. The slick plate on the Gold Cube has a precisely controlled water flow that is designed to process very large amounts of 8 mesh and smaller material in a very short time. With controlled water flow, the slick plate turns aggregate material into a slurry, and the water flow forces the lighter particles ahead of the heavier material. It is quite exciting to actually see your fine gold creeping down the slick plate! Gold, the heaviest element in the slurry, will be the last to reach the trough. G-Force Separator. The slurry then falls into a gated trough and will be forced under water. Then centrifugal force will force the gold to the outer edge of the rounded trough. The slurry will then exit the trough on the opposite side of the gate. After exiting the gated trough, the slurry is forced to stand up and form a column. The purpose of this column is to actively stack the particles by specific gravity. Lighter, faster moving particles race past the heavier particles and exit the column first. The Gold Cube's forced gravitational, centrifugal and columning effect is called "the G-Force." The Gold Cube's vortex matting works because water flow interacts with a combination of very small pillar walls and cavities-about 7,056 of them per mat. Just like a tornado, the spinning creates a low pressure zone in the center of each cavity. Passing gold will be trapped and forced to the bottom of the vortexes and held in place by the lighter material. As gold-laden material is introduced into each vortex mat, it will displace and replace the lighter material. This will create about a cup of super concentrates at clean-up. Amazing!
