Nuggets, flakes, pickers, flour gold... modern-day gold prospectors find the shiny stuff in many forms. But no matter the size or type, having the right equipment makes gold recovery easier, more profitable, and lots more fun!
The Desert Fox Automatic Spiral Gold Panner is a compact, light-weight gold panning machine you can take anywhere. It's primarily a finishing machine, used after large gold-bearing gravel has first gone through a sluice box or other concentrator. Once it's reduced down to concentrates, then you're ready to use the Desert Fox. Here's how:
Fill the tank with 3 gallons of water (the machine is appropriately named because it was designed to conserve water and operates on just 3 gallons), hook the clips to a 12-volt battery, and turn on the switch. The wheel starts to rotate and water will spray from the spraybar. Simply add a scoop of sandy concentrates every 20 seconds or so (machine can process 70 pounds of concentrates in an hour) and if the material contains gold, the gold will settle to the bottom. The spiraling motion will move the gold toward the center hub where it passes through a hollow shaft into a catch cup. The Desert Fox recovers an amazing amount of flour gold so you never lose even the smallest pieces (which all add up!). The automatic spiral panner is simple to use and you'll easily become an expert panner after just a few minutes!
The unique spiral wheel works so well because it has 7 separate spirals which pick up gold 7 times with each rotation of the wheel (105 times per minute). Weighing under 10 pounds, including its rugged folding stand (adjustable to the pitch you desire) and storage tub, the Desert Fox folds up and stores neatly. Operate it right out of the tub, or remove it from the case and use it in a stream. Operates on any 12-volt automotive battery or even a 35-watt solar panel.
