We made this web site so that more people could enjoy the wonderful hobby of gold prospecting. One of the easiest ways to find gold is by using a sluice box. Sluice boxes are not free, but we do offer some free sluice box plans.

These plans are 100% free, and they will show you how to build a basic sluice that works great. We know from experience that once you build your sluice using our free sluice box plans, you will start finding gold. Gold fever will set in, and you will want to find even more of that funny yellow metal.

Building your own sluice box is a great way to learn how they work to trap gold. Believe it or not, a sluice box works because of gravity, and when you build your own sluice with our free plans, you will have a better understanding of why they work so well.

With the knowledge that you gain from our sluice box plans, you will be able to start building your very own sluices. You will find places for improvement, and you may even want to invest a little bit of money into a pre-made sluice box. There is nothing wrong with that. It only takes a very small amount of gold to cover your costs.

The most important thing is to have fun! So get out there and start finding gold yourself.
