Build Your Own Gold Rocker box or cradle of gold and gold prospecting equipment

Sunday, 18 April 2010

The rocker first and put in the 'Goldfields from the state of Georgia, and gold mining is an important tool. At the dawn of a very gold rush to California, rocker box, also known as the birthplace of perhaps the most widely used piece of gold and

Gold prospecting equipment. For the time which was probably more important than that the general gold. The majority were from the miners because this can make a rock for himself in this area of the wood raw publication in the forest. It is also easily portable. The rocker boxes are also popular during the Klondike Gold Rush to work in two places the hills were much higher than the tables.

And 'rock' is a box with Hopper about 3 to 4 feet long and made of 1 to 2 large scale, the slope like a cradle, which was launched to cut a half circle of wood and work before, and to deal with to give the proposal the side, and also tends to transport both materials and access to a minimum, which is open. At the end of the upper part is a small hopper that may be removed and have the bottom sheet iron perforated with 1 / 2 in. Holes. Under the hopper is a yard of cloth or a pack tends to be President of the box, but do not touch the end of the box, and vaulting. Has made several wooden rifles through the box. The material is pumped to the hopper and screened by pouring water from the top; material is lighter on the end, while a hunting rifle in the box of gold and magnetic sand. This focus is cleaned of criticism at the end of the process. Rocker and uses the same type of work such as pan for gold, it is essentially a tool for exploration. A man capable of washing 3 to 5 times more than the amount of yards away with the gold pan, and the use of rock and removes many of the strain of continuous hard panning. On the other hand, it is easy to loss of movement as a general exploration.

Therefore, may cause modern prospector be interested in building a box, and rock on? The principal use of the rocker gold mining and small deposits where water is scarce. It's not really your desert and it does not use some of the water is great, but not as much as happened in the dam. In the rock, gravel and requires about three times the weight of water to wash. Maybe it was the best use of water in streams and waterways with very little - where some water is present, but not enough to run the dam square. If enough water flowing for the operation of the dam is present, the dam is the fastest and easiest to run from the rock. Rock is only a machine, primitive, have the capacity and one-fifth as large as that of the square of the dam, but because they are cheap, but requires little water, and provides a high percentage of gold, coarse, and will continue to rock used in many areas.

Practical rocker consists of gravel dredging on the screen or gray, and pouring water on it from the dipper at the same time give the device a movement back and forth rocking. To keep their huge gray rocks, which are removed by hand when they were washed clean. Agent examines briefly on a rock, using large-scale gold prospecting equipment for this to make sure is not throwing a large fragments or samples of gold. Must be placed in the cradle of miles when the work is, under the impact of the continuing side by side rocking the dirt and break quickly, and passes down through the hopper gray water and the fall is smaller than the normal size of the bottom of the arena of canvas that preserves most of the gold and the remaining places at the end of President of the trough. Square it is transferred to the end of the internal floor of the cradle (box such as a dam part of the rock), which was flowing a gun, or bars, and out of the mouth. Gun, fabric, blankets, corduroy, burlap, or cocoa mat with the expanded metal used to cover the bottom of the trough and I met with all the varying degrees of success in saving the gold. Mat and included a group of cocoa with the expanded sheet metal has proven to be very effective for most of the gravel. Frequency of cleaning depends on the richness and character of gravel, but the clean-ups are usually needed two or three times a day. Hopper is taken off first, then slid the square outside, washed in a bucket or basin containing clean water, and finally the gold is collected with a spoon from behind bars rifle, and checks.

Proposal vibrator used should be sufficient to maintain the gravel is disturbed, allowing the gold to settle, but the movement is very active price would be the loss of gold. Should become a little gravel bed with every movement, and should be evenly distributed throughout the trough. In general, it is not known for his ability to rock and save the fine gold, but with caution, experts and manipulation, can be achieved for a decent recovery of fine gold. Should be criticized from both the remnants of the rock dam and boxes, sometimes to check the loss of gold. When gold was found near the lower end of the rocker box or dam, should investigate the possibility of losses.

Because there is no one "right" design of the box, rock, and I do not already provide specific plans, but on my website and I give you the information you need to plan, design, square building your rock their own if that's what you have decided not. Recommended to design my own rock singer is scheduled to begin construction of the dam buy a box 40 inches long, 16 inches on the bottom, the slope like a cradle, with the rock at each end. Hopper will be 16 inches square and 6 inches deep, with the bottom of the sheet metal made of steel, perforated with holes 1/2-inch. In this box and hopper needs to be designed to be removed for cleaning. And extends the light of the cloth-covered frame under the hopper, forming a gun. Put guns yard of wood or steel across the bottom of the dam is part of the rock. And placed under the feet of a curved part of the dam to allow box, rocked back and forth. Historically, built of wood, rock, because in the early prospectors built. However, there is no reason it can not be built on the rock and heavy strong measure of aluminum sheet. It would be much lighter than the wood version. Remember that the wood absorbs water well, water logged wood is much heavier than dry wood, as all these things is one of the other gold prospecting equipment,
