Power jets (or powerjets) are suction creating devices that pull material through the suction hose and into the sluice box of a suction dredge. Power jets are preferred for deeper water and larger dredges, while suction nozzles, the other type of suction creating device used on a suction dredge, are preferred for shallow water use. Power jets are identically sized on both ends for use inline with suction hose, while power jets mounted directly to a sluice box are oversized to help reduce clogging. Oversize power jets often incorporate a quick release hose system.

Used Mining Equipment - Pre-Owned dredges, metal detectors, and more.
Dredges, Highbankers, and Pumps - This will direct you to our special section on suction dredges, highbankers, power sluices, and water pumps.
Metal Detectors & Accessories - Metal detectors for gold prospecting and more.

Plastic Gold Pans - Plastic gold pans are molded with riffles and other traps that aid panning and are colored to help show the gold. Green is considered one of the best colors as it not only shows gold well but also the blacks sands that one is attempting to separate from the gold.

Steel Gold Pans - Steel gold pans are used in the arts and crafts industry to fashion a wide range of items, and so even tiny steel gold pans measuring less than an inch are sold today. Painting steel gold pans has become a cottage industry in some areas like Alaska. And yes, some people still pan gold with them!

Classifiers & Screens - Screens and classifiers are used by miners to remove larger rocks from material before it is panned or otherwise processed. But these screens and classifiers have many other uses for those needing to separate items by size.

Crevicing & Digging Tools - Tools for scraping and digging dirt and other tools useful for sniping for gold. Sniping is the use of minimal hand tools to recover gold, most commonly from bedrock cracks and crevices.

Estwing Tools & Accessories - Since 1923, Estwing has manufactured the world's most durable and comfortable striking and struck tools. All Estwing tools are manufactured to the highest possible standards and offer a true value for those seeking quality tools.

Sluice Boxes - The sluice box is the most cost effective gold recovery device for the average prospector and miner. A sluice box allows a larger amount of material to be processed than a gold pan and often a sluice will capture gold better than a novice gold panner. The sluice box is the basis of larger equipment from suction dredges to large commercial recovery systems.

Gold Recovery Devices - Recovering fine gold is an art. Especially when you have used a suction dredge or other equipment and have accumulated a large quantity of heavy concentrates mixed with gold. Here is a selection of devices to aid you in separating gold from concentrates with the least effort possible.

Pumps & Pump Accessories - Water pumps and pump accessories such as footvalves.
Suction Nozzles & Suction Tips - Suction nozzles are suction creating devices that double as an intake nozzle on a suction dredge. They in effect push material through the suction hose to the sluice box. Suction tips are intake nozzles used in conjunction with power jets, the other type of suction creating device used on a suction dredge. Some suction tips swivel for ease of operation. Both suction nozzles and suction tips have nozzle openings that are smaller than the hose size to help reduce hose clogging.
Power Jets & Jet Accessories - Power jets (or powerjets) are suction creating devices that pull material through the suction hose and into the sluice box of a suction dredge. Power jets are preferred for deeper water and larger dredges, while suction nozzles, the other type of suction creating device used on a suction dredge, are preferred for shallow water use. Power jets are identically sized on both ends for use inline with suction hose, while power jets mounted directly to a sluice box are oversized to help reduce clogging. Oversize power jets often incorporate a quick release hose system.
Hose Couplers & Fittings - Hose couplers and fittings for connecting suction and pressure hoses.

Gifts & Collectibles - This collection of interesting and unique items can make the perfect gift for that special someone. These items have an Alaskan or mining theme.

Gold Containers & Display Items - This page lists the many items that can be used to store, display or sell your gold. Glass vials are great for display but plastic bottles are less likely to break. Lockets and magnifier boxes full of gold make great gift items.

Loupes & Magnifiers - Choose the perfect magnifier for your needs from this great online selection.
