African Model Gold Claimer
The African Model Gold Claimer also has a 2-8 yd/hr capacity, and is ideal for testing gold values or for small
production operations.  Its performance is unequalled to any in its field. The major difference between the
Gold
Claimer and the African Model is that the African does not have the water tank or de-watering screw.

Efficiency is a key ingredient!  The hopper has an adjustable water valve to slurry the material prior to entering the
trommel.  Lifters tumble the material as it enters the trommel to break it up.  A spray bar with its own adjustable
water valve goes the length of the trommel.  Next, the material approaches the 3/8” holes where anything under 3/8”
gets washed down onto the oscillating sluice, and larger material works its way to the end of the trommel.  A nugget
trap will catch any heavies and the lighter material will go out the tail cone to the rock chute and discard tray.  The
oscillating sluice has settings for stationary, short, & long strokes and is capable of 150 pulses per minute.  The
removable sluice has artificial turf, riffles mounted on expanded metal & 4 toggles to secure it into place.

The simplicity of the African Model Gold Claimer makes it the leader in the field of small portable placer equipment.  
Industrially built, it is easy to maintain & is powered by either an electric or gasoline engine.  Either one uses the
same motor mount which is easily removable by removing the snap pin & sliding out the motor mount.  It was
designed that way so you can easily take it with you at the end of the day to cut down on theft.  One motor runs
both the gear reducer & water pump using a B-Width belt.  The trommel is a positive chain drive.

The African Model is uniquely designed for its versatility!  The trommel itself can act like a rod mill by placing two
30" 1 1/4 rod.  It will help break up clay if that is a problem where you are operating.  You can also double your
capacity by placing two African Model Gold Claimers hopper to hopper and adding a "splitter", then feeding both
units with our
12' Feed Conveyor.
