The Explorer Gold Trap is the perfect combination of size, transport deck length, and fluid bed chamber capacity. This 35.5-inch model weighs in at only 7lbs. The Explorer's capture chamber hold more than twice the capacity older model sluices like the Bazooka Sniper. Better yet, there is no need to classify, just shovel pay dirt directly from the stream bed onto the material transport deck. Clean-outs are easy and fast, taking less than a minute. Simply place the fluid bed end of the sluice in a 5-gallon bucket of water, plunge the chamber end up and down a few times to empty it, and you are ready to put the Gold Trap back into the water to capture more gold.
