The Gold Claimer Concentrator is self contained, and with its 2-8 yd/hr capacity, it is ideal
for testing gold values or for small production operations.  It’s performance is unequalled
to any in its field.  The unique water supply and reclamation unit allows operation where
water is not available.   

Efficiency is a key ingredient!  The hopper has an adjustable water valve to slurry the
material prior to entering the trommel.  Lifters tumble the material as it enters the trommel
to break it up.  A spray bar with its own adjustable water valve goes the length of the
trommel.  Next, the material approaches the 3/8” holes where anything under 3/8” gets
washed down onto the oscillating sluice, and larger material works its way to the end of
the trommel.  A nugget trap will catch any heavies and the lighter material will go out the
tail cone to the rock chute and discard tray.  The oscillating sluice has settings for
stationary, short, & long strokes and is capable of 150 pulses per minute.  The removable
sluice has artificial turf, riffles mounted on expanded metal & 4 toggles to secure it into
place.  Any light material that gets washed off the sluice goes into the de-watering screw.

Using the de-watering screw is the most efficient way to remove solids from the water &
recirculate it.  The auger is raised from the bottom allowing the black sands to trap & a
second recovery for gold in case of too much water over the sluice.  The adjustable water
valve located on the bottom helps the heavy material to settle & lighter material to auger
out.  Waste material augers out and discards at the end of the Gold Claimer.  When
plenty of water is available & you don’t need to recirculate the water, remove the de-
watering screw by removing 2 bolts and the drive shaft.  The only change needed is to
remove the intake hose off the pump and place a longer hose with a foot valve in your
water source.

The unique design of the Gold Claimer makes the clean up process easy!  At the end of
the day (or sooner if needed), disengage the clutch or shut off motor.  At the hopper end
of the unit, slide the sluice out of its cradle by the handle.  Put it over a tub, lift the 4
toggles & slide the riffles & artificial turf out to be washed.  Reinstall the carpet and riffles,
slide the unit back into the sluice cradle & start the operation once again.  Another option
is to have a second complete sluice ready.

The Gold Claimer recirculates approximately 100 gallons of water .  You may need to add
a little water due to evaporation and the wetness of the waste material.  Drain plugs are in
both the water tank and the de-watering screw.

The simplicity of the Gold Claimer makes it the leader in the field of small portable placer
equipment.  Industrially built, it is easy to maintain & can be powered by either an electric
or gasoline engine.  Either one uses the same motor mount which is easily removable by
removing the snap pin & sliding out the motor mount.  It was designed that way so you
can easily take it with you at the end of the day to cut down on theft.  One motor runs
both the gear reducer & water pump using a B-Width belt.  The trommel is a positive chain

The Gold Claimer is uniquely designed for its versatility!  The trommel itself can act like a
rod mill by placing two 30" 1 1/4 rod.  It will help break up clay if that is a problem where
you are operating.  You can also double your capacity by placing two Gold Claimers
hopper to hopper and adding a "splitter", then feeding both units with our
12' Feed
