Gold Prospecting! You Bet!
2 " HAND DREDGE
Think the old timers found all the gold. Not So! This is a great tool for gold prospecting, used to clean out those deep holes once the water gets to deep for your shovel also good for sampling under large boulders, fast waterriffles, small waterfalls and sniping those nuggets. I live on the East Coast. Prospect in Md, Pa, Va, and Dc. area and there is still gold out here!
DESIGNED FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT MOVE A DREDGE IN AND OUT OF THE WATER AND FOR DREDGE RESTRICTED OR NON-MOTORIZED AREAS!
EASIER AND FASTER THAN OTHER STYLE HAND DREDGES, NO OPENING, UNSCREWING CAPS, SHAKING, OR PARTIALLY DISASSEMBLING THE UNIT TO GET YOUR SAMPLE. JUST POUR USING THE LONG HANDLE!! EVEN WORKS UNDERWATER!!
Total length is 40", the large tube that holds your sample is 3"x 28". bottom inlet tube is 2"
Place your dredge in fast or slow water. Give the handle about a 1/4 pull to prime the tube, push the tube back down and work the dredge slowly along the bottom. Then swiftly draw back on the handle until the handle pops out, the check valve holds your sample in the tube! Other hand dredges have no check valve and you lose most of you sample before you get it to your bucket or sluice.
Then just pour your sample into a bucket, classifier, sluice box or pan it out.
Start out with a manageable amount in your pan, swirl the pan until everything in the pan is stratified in the water, keep swirling or rocking the pan sideways at 45 degrees so the edge of the pan is level and just in the water, slumping off the larger rocks and lighter sand. Bring the pan level again with a few inches of water stratifying the material again, then rock the pan sideways at 45 degrees and keep repeating.When you start seeing the black sand, your getting close. keepstratifying your material bringing the lighter blonde sand to the top. Work it down until you see only the black sand. Any of the heaviest material will be in the bottom of the pan gold, lead, iron, hematite and magnetite. Work it down until you have 2-3 tablespoons of sand. With a small amount of water level your pan and slowly swirl the water over the sand gently washing the sand off of the pile, any gold will be mixed in with the black sand.
This hand dredge weighs about 6 lbs has sturdy handle for carrying and you can add a strap to the handle to carry it on your back or shoulder. I like to use a rifle or shotgun sling. Made of all heavy duty materials. Directions sent in package. I have sold more than 500 of these dredges on , check my 100% responses from satisfied buyers
Absolutely love your hand dredge!!! My "bazooka"! It's the best way here in NH w/all the rocks & cracks in the stream bed & bedrock cracks. We've come up w/flour gold & will continue to test different sites. I bought another "Super Sucker" before I saw yours and you are the man! I would like to purchase another for my pal please contact me

Hey! I bought one of your gold suckers a few weeks ago. Yesterday I found a 2 gram nugget with it! I am telling my friends that your product is awesome! Lots of fine gold in the pan also. Way better than digging out a crevice with your hands, and cleans out that crevice in very little time.

I just wanted to write, and thank you again for the hand dredge. I used it this past weekend and it worked perfect. It sure beats a shovel hands down. I found out that it even works under water. I found a large hole in the side of bedrock under the water and it allowed me to get all of the material out of it. Thanks again for a great product.
Hi Dan, just wanted to tell you I finally got out last week and got a chance to use your hand dredge. After watching some of the other types being used on the gold shows and seeing how many times they had to pull on the handle to load it up I was figuring on getting a tired arm. This thing is unbelievable ! It loads in one pull and getting the material out is as easy as turning it upside down, no messing with an attached plunger that is flopping around in the way, just lay down the plunger and dump into the pan. Your plan for this is outstanding, thanks for providing such a great product. It does exactly what it's meant to do. The weather was so hot we didn't get out much but did get a few flakes, enough to say I found some. Without your hand dredge I wouldn't have even tried to get the material from the bottom of the hole.

I have used it again and I absolutely got gold. I sucked it out of the bedrock cracks. My buddy (damn near a geologist) was majorly impressed. He said he will have to order one after he tried mine. You have made a very good product. I think I will paint mine. I own a body shop in Whittier California and thought it would be fun. we will see. I like it just the way it is. It works!
