If you plan on using a highbanker check to see if you are permitted in your state, region or river. Some areas like Victoria are very supportive of highbanker use but there are some rivers and streams on the restricted list as stated on your miners right.


What’s in the kit?

Our Famous 8×36 inch gold river sluice running the dream mat for superior gold recovery, additionally the 400 mm header unit with plumbing and 3 meters of premium non crush delivery hose to suit.

To keep this unit firm on the floor we run our classic stainless steel leg brackets and 12mm aluminium leg bar kit.

This set-up is ideal for the weekend prospector, the prospector who detects and crushes ore or the small scale miner who needs to run his crushed ore or concentrates when capture rates are imperative and water is in short supply.

You not only have a great standalone system you have a flared river sluice to take with you when flows are good.

If you like to bring buckets of dirt home to run in the backyard or you have kids you would like to introduce to the hobby well you will want to add this to the collection.
