The Gold Cube can process tons of concentrates into mere ounces. With a 12-volt battery (not included) you're ready to clean up your concentrates QUICKLY! The Gold Cube is small and consists of stacking trays made of indestructible plastic LDPE (low density polyethylene) that's as thick as a cutting board. Slick Plate. The slick plate on the Gold Cube has a precisely controlled water flow that is designed to process very large amounts of 8 mesh and smaller material in a very short time. With controlled water flow, the slick plate turns aggregate material into a slurry, and the water flow forces the lighter particles ahead of the heavier material. It is quite exciting to actually see your fine gold creeping down the slick plate! Gold, the heaviest element in the slurry, will be the last to reach the trough. G-Force Separator. The slurry then falls into a gated trough and will be forced under water. Then centrifugal force will force the gold to the outer edge of the rounded trough. The slurry will then exit the trough on the opposite side of the gate. After exiting the gated trough, the slurry is forced to stand up and form a column. The purpose of this column is to actively stack the particles by specific gravity. Lighter, faster moving particles race past the heavier particles and exit the column first. The Gold Cube's forced gravitational, centrifugal and columning effect is called "the G-Force." Vortex Matting. The Gold Cube's vortex matting works because water flow interacts with a combination of very small pillar walls and cavities-about 7,056 of them per mat. Just like a tornado, the spinning creates a low pressure zone in the center of each cavity. Passing gold will be trapped and forced to the bottom of the vortexes and held in place by the lighter material. As gold-laden material is introduced into each vortex mat, it will displace and replace the lighter material. This will create about a cup of super concentrates at clean-up. Amazing!
