Hello Ted just my opinion but in my small high banker dredge after my ur I went with talon cut river hog scrubber talon and bedrock that's in a 36" sluice you may want to use a couple more river hogs because you will have more volume and a longer sluice just experiment with the pattern before you glue them. So far all my gold has been caught in the first 3 mats.

Hi.Ted.Scrapper is right.I would get a good mix of the most agressive looking mats.i only use a 2inch nozzle in a 10x34 inch box.Mine is set up for low water volumes.I run dd,talon and rb.this was set up for just regular digging ,but I can run my p90 fullwide all day long and not lose gold.I Have friends running different combos none of us seem too loose gold.The mats say it all.If you are dealing with super fine beach gold you may want to watch some of Ray ruckshaws you tube vids.Luck Mcbain.
