The concept of gold concentrators
is really simple. Again you will be relying on a couple
of forces of nature, water and gravity. They help you
get those small bits of gold that you would otherwise
Nuggets, they are so easy to
retrieve. Their larger size makes them more difficult
to move so they almost always settle down in the bottom
of your equipment but there are lots of tiny gold flakes
that are just as valuable as those nuggets. They are
easier to come by also.
These tiny little gold flakes
like to hang out around that heavy black sand. They
both have similar weights so they end up mixed up in
the bottom of your pay dirt. Sure you can pan the gold
out of that black sand and then use a snuffer bottle
and retrieve it but a concentrator makes the job us
retrieving those little flakes of yellow metal so much
All concentrators work basically
the same. You pump water into them from a tub or a stream.
In the middle of the bowl there is a raised tower that
has a hole in the middle. This is where you water rises
and leaves the bowl. The idea is to get the water flowing
just right and the water will carry all of that light
material right out of the hole with it and what's left
in the bottom is the gold. If your concentrator is not
level you will lose gold. Level it and capture more
gold. You will also get much better success if you use
a classifier before your concentrator. You want to get
that dirt as fine as possible to get the most gold in
