How The Gold Cube Concentrator Slick Plate Works

By Marc Prinz


In this Gold Cube review I take a closer look at how the Gold Cube Concentrator works! This awesome invention was designed and is manufactured by two very intelligent gold prospectors Mike Pung and Steve Wilcox. They own and sell this direct to the public.

The Gold Cube Concentrator slick plate is the first tray in the Gold Cube stack. This is also the first gold recovery step in the Gold Cube Concentrator. The idea of the slick plate has been around for awhile in different forms and the guys at Gold Cube made it better! They made the slick plate better by having a nice evenly controlled amount of water continually running over the entire surface of the Gold Cube slick plate. I like the slick plate feature because you do not have to control the water or anything else and you can spread large amounts of classified gold concentrate material over the entire surface at the top all at once. About a 1000 Lbs. of material can be run through the Gold Cube per hour. You can tell the slick plate is working by looking at the surface of the Gold Cube slick plate and seeing all of your gold slowly moving towards the G-Force separator.

Slick Plate: The slick plate on the Gold Cube Concentrator 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 Gold Cube slick plate does 2 things:
1. It turns aggregate material into a slurry, and
2. 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.

    Hi Mark,
    I tried contacting GoldCube directly to find out what size
    battery they recommend and whether a motorcycle or lawn
    tractor battery would be adequate and got no response. What size
    do you recommend?
    Also is a 3 stack enough to recover the fine gold we find
    in Clear Creek or do I need a 4 stack?

    Dan I use a marine deep cycle battery. It’s heavy but I do not have to worry about it running out of juice. I use a 3 stack Gold Cube for every thing I do. Thanks for the comment Dan. Good luck prospecting.

    Hi Marc,
    Just a follow-up regarding the battery…I bought 2 used
    cordless lawn mower batteries off of Craig’s List. They’re
    about the size of a motorcycle battery. I think I ran 6 buckets of material last Saturday and it was pumping just as much water as when I began. I never even used the 2nd battery as the first one lasted the whole day (about 10am to 4pm, not continuous usage but intermittent as needed to run a bucket of material).
    That battery weighs about 1/5th what the small auto battery did that I originally used. Carried that battery up a steep hill in Wyoming and decided as soon as I made it to the car: never again and sold it on Craig’s List.

    That is good to know Dan. Thanks for the great input. Everyone is always looking to make things better, faster and easier. I would like to see some pics of what you have found if you have any. Also, sorry for just now getting back you you. I have been out of town. Thanks again. Good luck Dan!
