Have you ever wondered if some of the super fine gold in your material is passing you by? The“Lil” Gold Trapfinds the “fines”.
It’s a vibrating recovery sluice designed to capture the finest of flour gold. This mighty-might, will process all fines no greater than #20 mesh and classify them down to #600 mesh.
At a recent Gold Show this past spring, a young man had stopped by the demonstration booth to witness the “Lil” Gold Trap in action. After observing the extent of its abilities, he purchased one and adventured off, taking in the rest of the show. Only to return some time later…. While wandering the other exhibits he happened across a vendor who was packing up for the day. Sitting off to the side was a bucket of material. The inquisitive fellow asked if he could have some of the dirt and was told “take it all, there’s no gold in it.” Remembering what he witnessed the “Lil” Gold Trap do earlier that day, he requested that this “discarded” bucket of dirt be run through the demo model to test it out. To his, and other spectator’s amazement, an unmistakable line of yellow immediately began to appear. By the time the entire bucket had been processed, he walked away with a respectable small amount of gold from this “waste material”; wearing a smile that went from ear to ear knowing that he had a “Lil” Gold Trap of his own.
If you think you may have been throwing away some of your gold too, then visit the product page to see additional photo’s and a demonstration video for yourself: after all, you worked hard for it, keep it all.
So, with that being said…may you have many great returns this season!
The 10″ HD is the same great Trommel as the standard 10″, only this little beast is on steroids. To begin with we widened it’s foot print by extending the wheel base, then threw on meatier tread (same as on the 14″); the reason for this evolution was to facilitate the use of an ATV so you can easily get your machine to your work site. We then, of course, added a tow bar; ’cause how else are you gonna tow it.? The final upgrade incorporates a three speed transmission, allowing you to further adjust the rate at which you run your material.
A complete breakdown of the specs, and costs are available on our product page at http://store.summitmining.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=PGT-+10 , where you can also find additional images detailing the upgrades. Be sure to view the “Description” and “Technical Specs” tabs as well as all the options in the “Choose your options” inset.
Once you check it out, give us your feedback. We’d appreciate hearing from you…as always.
Summit Mining and Equipment offers one of the longest river sluices on the market. Our Pro River Sluice is 5′ long with a 4′ riffle box. Its 12″ wide and offers some of the newest products out there to catch the gold including the new Vortex mat. We offer a demo unit at our Boise retail location for potential owners to test out in the field. Tom Forster of Boise did just that recently and sent us some pics of his trip. Not a bad afternoon Tom. Thanks for the good word and the photos.

If only you could combine your vacation travel plans with prospecting. That would be like “living the dream”, right? That is exactly what Russ and Sandy McMullen did the summer of 2012. But before they headed out west, they stopped by Summit Mining and Equipment for one of our 10″ trommels. We’ll let them tell the rest of the story!

We drove 831 miles from Boise to Denver with 2 kids, 4 adults and our dog Kiwi. A few of the places we stopped to stretch the legs were Little America, WY and Golden, CO. It was good to see different parts of the country.

Not that kind of picker!
Buffalo ride & .50 cent ice scream cones! What a treat
"The Summit trommel is the best trommel I've ever used for recreational gold prospecting. I can process over 1 1/2 tons of material per day by myself. If you want to run more material and ultimately find more gold, you need to have a trommel. The Summit trommel is the best quality for the money that I've seen on the market. It's extremely well-made and user-friendly. I would strongly recommend it to any prospector who wants to increase his gold recovery capabilities.” — Tony Olson, Vice President, Idaho Gold Prospectors Association
“I bought a trommel from Danny this spring and think it is great. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to move more material and capture more gold. It far outperforms a highbanker and the smaller unit is easier to move around. I love it.” — Kirk Redlin, Idaho
“I took the opportunity to go up to the Miss Lucy/Paymaster claims for Summit Mining's Trommel Demo day last month. I was not disappointed! Danny and Daniel explained the operation of their machines and allowed me to process about a dozen buckets of material. It was wet and muddy but exhilarating and refreshing at the same time (I hate to miss a chance to play in the dirt!).
After a final cleanup of the machine, the result was a very decent amount of gold in a small phial, which they allowed me to keep. Unbelievable! It was a great time. I was very impressed with their trommel products and their hospitality. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who is thinking of upping their prospecting game to check out Summit Mining & Equipment Inc.
You'll be glad you did!” — Bud Gudmundson, Idaho
“I want to thank you again for the Pro Inline Screen. I just got it today! Wow, talk about fast delivery! I will be showing all my friends and club members. We have been long overdue for an inline filter. We put the end line in a bucket, then into the water and it still sucked up roots and debris."
This will make things move much faster.”
— Mitch Andersen, Idaho
“Last Saturday I participated in a demo presented by Dan. The demo was great and I really appreciated the opportunity to learn more about this industry.
I'm a rookie to gold prospecting, and have only had my first gold pan for two weeks. I understand the principle now and it looks very promising.”
— Michael Dawson, Idaho
“I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with the trommels. We were up at the IGPA Outing on Memorial Day and also the Nampa GPAA outing June 12th. We had a lot of fun running the trommels and everyone there was impressed with Danny’s great demonstration.” — Keith and Vicky Anderson, Members of IGPA and Nampa Chapter GPAA
