The Jobe Magnum Power Sluice is based on the Jobe 45 Stream Sluice Box (includes stream sluice flare) features 4 fully adjustable legs for easy set up in or out of the water, a header box with flared walls and built in baffle to spread the flow of the water and is powered by a 12 volt, 2200 GPH Johnson Marine submersible water pump, with 8′ of inch and a half discharge hose.
Power sluicing has some major advantages over traditional stream sluices.
1. You can set up where it’s convenient for you, rather than where the stream gives you the right circumstances of drop and flow
2. You control the angle of the sluice box with adjustable legs verses rocks, wing dams and drops in the stream
3. With a pump, water is a constant, so one less piece of the equation to worry about. Add an inline valve and you can bring flow back into the equation with precise control
4. Sit on a stool and quit bending over, even on dry land with 8′ of hose
The Magnum kit includes the stream flare for the Jobe 45, so you can always convert back in areas that prohibit powered equipment. All in all, it’s a nice step up from a traditional stream sluice.

Proline Large Sluice Box For Sale
Sluice box by Proline’s largest sluice box features a wide flare, hinged riffles, ribbed matting and more. This is Proline’s largest sluice box at 50 inches, and is built for high production sluicing for gold.
The top of the sluice starts with a wide flare, so wide in fact that we ship it in its own box. A wide flare helps direct more water through the sluice and helps in flow control.
Next comes a stretch of deep V ribbed rubber matting for quick inspection and sampling. If you’re not seeing gold periodically settle in your ribbed matting, dig somewhere else. The gold may eventually wash down behind your riffles, but the matting helps in at-a-glance sampling.
Next comes a stretch of riffles over ribbed carpet. This area will catch the bulk of your gold. The riffles continue with the addition of a layer of expanded metal welded to the underside of the riffle tray. Many other sluice boxes have expanded metal, but few manufacturers take the time to carefully weld it to the riffle assembly. This extra effort means much quicker clean-up, fewer snags in your neoprene and fewer accidents where your prospecting buddy is quoted as saying, “Oops! Sorry, I didn’t see that laying there. Maybe we can bend it back…”
The whole riffle system is hinged and folds right up and out of the way. This makes clean up a breeze! Just release the latches, lift the tray, slide the carpet into your tub and rinse the box. When you’ve rinsed the carpet, slip it back into the sluice, lower the riffles and latch. It’s that easy.
