(Le Trap Stand NOT Included)

This Le Trap Sluice box is made from the original aluminum mold that was used to make the first Le Trap.

The Le Trap “Bank Robber” and “River Robber” Sluice Box is incredibly lightweight yet efficient at catching even fine gold. Sluice box measures 48″ long by about 12-14″ wide on the inside (exterior is about 16″ wide) and will hold the finest flour gold as well as large nuggets. The Le Trap sluice weighs only about 4 pounds, so it is very easy to back pack. Approximate outside measurements are 48″Lx16″Wx4″D.

Operation: In order to operate the Le Trap sluice in a stream, you will want fairly fast water. The closed end of the Bank Robber Sluice can be cut out, creating the River Robber Sluice. The flared riffle design causes the water flow to slow as it passes through the sluice, resulting in optimum gold recovery. In working this box, water should run through very rapidly, about 2″ deep, which keeps the riffles clean and will leave the gold and very little concentrates behind.

This sluice is ideal for dredge cleanouts. Simply bunjy your Le Trap inside your dredge box, put your engines at an idle and run your concentrates.

An ideal sluice for times when weight must be kept to a minimum. The sluice is made of high impact ABS plastic and will take a lot of abuse, but should you ever get a crack or chip in it, it can be welded with ABS glue, available at most hardware stores. Please note that these sluice come with the only the discharge end open.

Remember, it ships with the upper end squared off so the unit can be turned into a highbanker if you wish. If you just want to use it in a creek with water flowing through it, simply cut or saw the input end off to let the water into the sluice. Simple! Have fun and tons of gold to you!
