    Sluice Box - A piece of gold prospecting equipment. Works on the same principle as a gold pan.
    It is a elongated wooden or metal trough, equipped with riffles, through which alluvial material is washed to recover its gold or other heavy minerals.

    Just make a henry henry\poop tube sluice. Need some suction hose (basically 4 in swimming pool hose) cut it in half. The angle you use must be a one inch drop for every foot.
