Being new to prospecting and having a recreational mining area near a local river that was a reasonable drive to get to, I went the simple and time tested route of breaking into prospecting by purchasing a hand sluice, specifically Keene's High Production A52 Hand Sluice.

After doing my research on the internet I found that this sluice has been in production for years and was regarded to be the template for all others of its type to follow; a rugged sluice that was well engineered and field tested by many prospectors well before I ever entered the scene.

I chose the sluice for these reasons:

-Keene Engineering is a quality name, one that could be trusted when considering the purchase of gear one expects to perform and last a while.

-Customer Support: The folks at Keene have been around for some time, are available to call for a question or two, and can provide parts for their products as needed.

-The A52 sluice's design matched my requirements for higher output, manageable weight, and simple maintenance.

-If I ever wanted to make a dry washer, I can use components of the A52 (in addition to other items requiring purchase) to build one.

I considered other sluices, such as the smaller A51 and others costing less, but settled on the A52 because of my application need (a want to run more product through the sluice... shovel scoop full vs. hand trowel full); the A52's portability (I can carry it for probably up to a mile by hand (break it down backpack style (with some doing and forethought); Keene's visibility as a supplier in the prospecting market for years and years, and finally, the ability to utilize part of the A52 to use as dry washer.

When I received it from Rusty's (a great vendor...

Well built, but light enough to carry.

I would have given it 5 stars but...

The miners moss that it comes with is not what I like to use.
and
The Price I paid was way too high..

I got the Gold fever....

UPDATE

I have now had a chance to use this Sluice and I LOVE IT.
This thing(the A52) pulled 5 grams of ultra fine flour gold(worth more than double what I paid for the A52) in one day from country that has been mined for over 100 years.
ONE TOTALLY OUTSTANDING PIECE OF MINING EQUIPMENT.

It works and I'm glad I purchased it. Keene puts out a great hand sluice. If you use it as you're suppose to, it will do it's job. I have found color using this hand sluice and I hope you will as well.

This is built solid and will last for years and years. I have used it as a stream sluice, but I also built a stand for it, built a manifold, then bought a gas powered water pump so I could use it out of the water as a power sluice. That's sometimes easier than trying to set it up in a stream.

However, if you like to keep things simple and don't mind rigging it in flowing water, this is an excellent product.

Works great.

Heavy duty construction.

I've banged myself in the lower leg more times than you can imagine hiking this thing into places.

Really snags the gold when set up properly. I use mine all the time. Thinking about getting a dredge. I would definitely consider this sluice if I were you.

the keene a52 hand sluice is top of the line in gold mining, these are very efficient at gold recovery. be sure to get the support stand with adjustable legs which is an optional accessory, it really makes it easier to set up, level, and stabilize your sluice box. I also have the keene a51a super mini sluice which is also very good. after a day of mining it is time for a good meal, checkout this book filled with delicious, easy to follow recipes, my own personal favorites are the honey walnut shrimp, and the egg fried rice.
