Mountain Goat Trommel
The Mountain Goat Trommel works on the same principles as the large trommels that can be found in industrial sized gold extraction enterprises. The mountain goat trommel could be said to be similar to a gold spiral wheel in that heavier materials are forced further into the system while lighter materials are forced out of the system – the only difference being that the mountain goat will process large materials taken directly from a riverbed and screened to 1/2″ whereas spiral wheels will only operate efficiently with black sands and materials that have been screened down to very small sizes through sluicing.
The Mountain Goat Trommel has a reverse helix inside that allows almost anything to be fed into it and the only thing that will come out the other end is black sands and gold. It is very light considering its large bulk and could be carried to almost any location a gold prospector might find him/herself.
Mountain Goat Trommel Features
- adjustable leg lengths to change the angle of the internal helices – this will increase gold recovery & efficiency depending on the size of gold in your location
- nugget trap for collecting gold nuggets up to 1/4″ in size
- due to the design of the mountain goat trommel it is essentially self-cleaning
- the mountain goat can ether be used directly in a river or stream or set up inside a large tray filled with water- it will then become a fine gold recirculating system
