I just got this youtube video today and watched the entire thing. It is lengthy at about 70 minutes, but pretty good. He uses a see through four foot sluice in a lab situation where he experiments with flow rates and slope of his sluice with the mat that he has developed. He varies the flow rate from 1000 gph to 5000 gph and the slope from flat to 3 inches per foot. He dumps in a gold bearing concentrate and shows it getting caught in his fancy mat. It appeared to me that his mat is pretty forgiving by catching and retaining the gold through different flow rates and slopes.

I think it is much longer than it needs to be; he could have easily edited out a lot of the discussion and the watching the box. Nevertheless the resulting video is really worthwhile.
