Converting a Gold Dredge to Gold Hog Mats

Funny story… I pulled up to gold n gems one day and saw a trailer parked in front of me. Walked up to say “hey” while we waited for someone to open the gates and it was Dean.  He just happen to have his matting conversion with him so I asked to film it.  Put him on a spot I thought would be good and sure enough, it paid off. The gold in the video is from about 20 – 30 minutes on bedrock.

Converting a gold dredge to bare GoldHog Mats. In this video we convert a 3 stage into a single.

Thanks for the great video. I converted my 3″ Keene last season. I hope to see lots of gold in it this year. Nice to see an older dredger like myself for some encouragement.
