Around the world the majority of gold separating is being performed with a pan and in many cases mercury. This is not only an archaic process, but is also quite deadly.
John Richmond, the founder of Sluice Goose Industries and the inventor of Goldrop, wanted to change the lives of millions around the world and make it easier for prospectors to make a living. The Goldrop will do both.
The Goldrop is designed to be portable, durable and easy to use. After a quick classification process the concentrate is simply dumped into the top of the Goldrop. Within seconds, over 99.8% of the gold is filtered and deposited into a canister at the base of the Goldrop. That’s it.
Shane from Klesh Guitars had the chance to review this product and had a lot to say:
"If you're in a hurry to do paydirt and you want to get quick recovery, i think this machine is actually not bad at all. Especially for the bigger gold. It did 100% recovery on the beginner bag of paydirt, which is the big pieces of gold. On the Gold Strike, it was still up 95-85% recovery, which is still pretty good, especially for under a minute.That was really fast. And for the impossible paydirt, it still took me an hour to pan out the tailings. And it was still a around a 70% recovery rate within a minute. And that's really good."

How It Works
POUR IN THE PAYDIRT
After classifying the pay dirt down to 1/8 inch minus, the classified material is fed into the top of the Goldrop.
The Goldrop then uses only water flow to separate the gold from the dirt in just seconds. Dirt can continuously be fed into the top of the unit. As the Goldrop separates the gold the tailings are fed out of the back of the unit into an optional bucket or back onto the ground.
GOLD DROPS INTO THE COLLECTION JAR
At the bottom of the Goldrop is a collection jar. The jar will continue to collect gold as you feed in the pay dirt at the top. There’s no need to remove the jar until it’s full. If you want to inspect the jar you remove it while the Goldrop continues to separate the gold. Once the jar is reattached and the valve is opened, all the gold will instantly fall that was processed while the jar was removed.

Review by Rosey M on November 12, 2020Cleanup and restoration was under 30 minutes. My set up was only 15 minutes or less and done without assistance. The low voltage pump is easy to keep steadily running with a single folding 80W solar panel. Noise is minimal. Dumping jar contents for quick examination always yields gold. I have NEVER been skunked and have captured, at least, very small gold up to 15 flakes. I run it without a flocculant, nor any other chemical additives. The Sluice Goose is so quick, easy to operate and you can adjust water flow on the fly depending on your dirt density. Vertical gravity gold stripping from any material is the only way I prefer to work now. Over 30 years of other devices have been mothballed! Just Goldrop, a sucker bottle, Gold Claw pan, potable water and sunscreen for me, and I'm ready to go!
Review by Dave V on November 12, 2020I had my first pan of gold when I was eleven years old. I've been chasing gold ever since and I am now 56. I own a hard rock gold mine and I have financed multiple placer operations and have been in the gold industry, in some way, for over 40 years. The thing that is most difficult to deal with in the recovery of gold is the final cleanup stage where you try and get your gold out of the heavy and dense black sand concentrates. There are many pieces of equipment on the market that will help concentrate your raw material into a manageable amount of product, but we still have to deal with getting the gold out of the cons so that we have a final, sellable product. There are some very large, industrial sized commercial products that do come close to cleaning your gold, however, there is NOTHING that comes close to matching the speed and or efficiency of the Sluice Goose Goldrop! The Goldrop is able to recover clean gold from the heaviest black sands in a matter of seconds and uses nothing more than water and gravity to provide the result I've been looking for my whole life! In my opinion, The Sluice Goose Goldrop can simply change the industry forever by eliminating the need for toxic chemicals, large mechanical equipment and the cost prohibitive nature of industrial equipment. It is super light weight and easy to disassemble so you may put it in your backpack and take it anywhere!
Review by KleshGuitars on November 5, 2020I received one of these in the mail and after getting the battery and the trickle charger, I was able to set it up (very quickly) using just two 5 gallon buckets, I can't wait to share this product with my YouTube viewers - coming soon!
Review by Lhatch on October 3, 2020One awesome piece of equipment to have. If you haven't watched the videos on this, you should! Well worth it! Great piece of equipment.
Review by Megan Yellow Chick Rosey on October 2, 2020Original outside the family Beta Tester, I have found this durable, easy to set up, and use right out of the carton, Goldrop unit to be THE answer to all my placer mining dreams, especially cleanup. Pre-classifying with screens beyond the already small 1/8th minus size recommended, has significantly improved my ability to capture down to minus 200 regular and sometimes beyond, beach gold here on the west coast especially. I've reduced it to its smallest weight possible and this is a 7# wonder, which goes anywhere, and does it all...with directed water flow--elutriation flow. I've mounted it on a portable, metal, collapsible easel. So lightweight!!! ///I sold my RP-4 to get my hands on this unit. Man, but am I glad!!! Thanks, JOHN. Truly, THIS is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and even trumps the Gold Cube for ease of use, volume throughput, and in time savings most especially. Love the yellow in the jar with very little effort!!!

Q: Hi How does this deal with the black sand?A: It works really well with the black sand. We have demo units in our showrooms and we have seen it first hand pull all the gold out of the black sand.
