How to train your gold cube

How To Train Your Gold Cube

To train you gold cube there are 4 things that you need to do before you unleash you Gold Cube into the wild.

  1. Check your pump connections on the battery.  The Brown wire goes to the positive (red) post.
  2. Remove all the bubbles from the vortex matting, either by scrubbing or spraying water into the matting.
  3. Running black sand is much heavier than regular sand, feed the slick plate accordingly; the more black sand the slower you go.
  4. Keep your cube out of direct sunlight until you are ready to use it.  Visit our video tutorial here

Safety is always a concern when you are close to water. Creeks are dynamic bodies of water that can change anytime during the day or night. If it’s raining up stream a small creek can become a raging river in very little time.

Even if it’s not raining, the water can still become so high that you may not be able to get back across a stream. Always take the proper gear and plan ahead for what nature will send your way. Drink plenty of water and apply sunscreen as needed. Pace yourself and remember you are going to have to pack out almost all the time going uphill. Living in Colorado, the winter months are a great time prospect because the water is generally low however the cold can make a great day into a very bad one if you happen to get wet.

One technique we have tried that works quite well is to wear waders and long johns, process your material into buckets while in the water which can only take a couple of hours, then get out and warm up and process the material in the buckets through the cube. This method allows you to enjoy the day dry and warm.

    Banjo Pan – Worlds Fastest Gold Pan

    The Banjo Pan is the Worlds Fastest Gold Pan using the Gold Cube principles (degrees of separation) we’ve come up with a pan that combines a sluice and a gold pan for continuous production with a removable vortex collection mat.   Not only continuous panning without stopping (similar to a sluice box) but performs wet, dry or underwater!

    So Easy To Use!

    Simply scoop your material into the Banjo Pan and dip it into the stream using a rocker motion to gradually flow the material over the mat.  The Banjo Pan is designed to automatically provide the correct angle for the mat to work properly.   When done processing carefully remove the mat and clean-out into the pan! Directions are on the back of the pan.

The system leaves the tubs totally portable and nest-able. The Flange system is a must where gold is fine, water is scarce, and every drop counts!

    An ideal portable and contained small production system has a 3 tub sediment system (3 Tub Kit) using the tube flange to connect them together.  A very good system has a smaller tub inside a larger tub then one next to it connected by flanges (2 Tub Kit).
