All 12V Gold Dry Washer
The SNORKEL hose gets clean air for the internal turbine blower from about 6' high above the usual dusty zone of a dry washer. A high frequency vibrator under the hopper gives a linear motion for smooth riffle tray operation. The hopper has a 1/4" punch plate so that no coarse rock is processed in this fine gold recovery unit. An efficient and quiet operation is achieved by connecting to a 12V battery. It only uses 85W (12V x ~7A) so the hours of running depends upon your battery amp hours. A battery clip wire is supplied. Obviously it can also be connected to a generator through a 12V 10A converter (accessory) for unlimited hours. The hose and adapters fold down to about 1/3 for travel. The rod supporting the hose stands in a socket.
Four of these were actually developed and used in extensive field testing near Stanton AZ in Fall of '21. They outperformed my Keene 151S, so I sold it! The SNORKEL runs from a few gallons up to about 2 yd per hr. It's really light weight (40 lb) so easy to move around. If you worry about missing a larger nugget, just check the oversize pile with a metal detector; even I can find a 1/4+" sized nugget!
Production is limited due to supply issues. Newest models have a sealed switch and a removable screen.
