Time For Some Good News!

Take a minute to read this very exciting article by Shannon Poe at the American Mining Rights Association!

Firstly, we know you are as skeptical as we are, after all, we’ve been told things over the past 9 years (like rulings from courts and such) which give us hope, but it always ended up being the same BS, delays, denials and shutdowns The small mining community donated millions to go to court, Brandon Rinehart was dragged through many court battles and that too we all donated to. All to no avail... Continue Reading

WHAT’S HAPPENING…

Keene Crevice Trowel $19.95

The more I use the new Keene Crevice trowel the more I like it. I put one in a vice yesterday to see if I could break it and I was shocked. I placed the shovel end in the vice it took all my weight to bend it but it did not break. I then flipped it over and tried to break the crevice claw and this would also not break. The material we use is the best in the world called Polylac ABS Resin. This is also a very expensive material about double of everything else. We are striving for the best in the world. No cheap Chinese regrind crap here.

By popular demand, we have come out with 2 new Suction tips for dredging.
New 2" suction tip with a single handle allowing you to work the dredge with less effort and fatigue. The tip is equipped with a steel reducer ring with flow-through vents provide a more consistent flow of water into the sluice and also fewer rock jams. SST2 $65.00
New 2.5" swivel tip is providing with a large comfortable handle. This new tip is by far the most comfortable and easy to use 2.5" we have ever built. The new design also helps with diver fatigue. Equipped with the flow-through vents as well. SST25 $124.95

For quite some time now we have had customers request a better nozzle for smaller machines. We should have been making these along time ago. We have also experimented with many different designs of a dry land dredge and have some great results. Back in the 50s and 60s my grandfather made a suction nozzle with a secondary pressure line blasting at the tip of the nozzle. We know this is been a item that is been needed. We have the technology. We have also made a cup that fits on any nozzle that is fully adjustable for the water flow but the Hydroforce nozzle works very well. We at Keene do like to see the other companies survive.

Its strange how you guys smash the pressure line almost flat into the nozzle on the dry lander nozzle. Does that create more suction?

Do you make these for a 3”?

Quite beautimus-(Beautiful and fabulous.)

These are some of the latest pictures on the Keene A52S super sluice kit. These pictures provide a better view of the two different classifier screens we are testing. I love the way the legs fold up just under the sluice and leaving plenty of room to fit on a backpack. Being able to position the legs in three different upright positions makes a quick and effortless set. I want to go out this weekend however, the rain is going to be extremely heavy. If I go out, you will most likely see me in a wet suit. ... See MoreSee Less

I love everything about this when can I get one are you going to have a A52 sluice box conversation kit you guys always come up with the best equipment

Will i be able to buy just the punch plate screen for my A52?

Scott Graves

Want

Sweet setup guys, would love to be able to give this one a good try.

How much?

I'd try it! :)

Awesome

Looks killer , i like the miricle mat in there too!

Mark, she looks great! Serious make over!!

Robert Hughes would love to run one of these through the turon - just pump or shovel it on!!

Puts the right material on the correct mat. That punch plate allows that miracle mat to excel... Protects it from getting hammered with larger material, breaking that low pressure zone, thus releasing gold. Solid build guys!

New Keene A52S Super sluice package
We just made some additional changes to the New Keene Super sluice. We are trying a different leg mounting system to remove a few pounds. We are trying out a few different classifier screens and a few tricks to hold the screen in. The new screens should also provide better versatility and ease of use. The riffle board worked great and we only made a few minor changes. Patrick and I, sometimes have different opinions on things as to what screen will work better. I am curious to see what screen works best. We have also recruited a few volunteers doing some testing for us this week. Plus I hope to take it out Saturday to do my own testing proving the rain snow is not to bad. Kevin Brown is one of the local hardcore miners that does a lot of sluicing up in East fork of the San Gabriel River. He will definitely put the sluice box through the paces.
Our goal here is to build the best sluice box in the world that does not require pre-classifying

That’s the East Fork Narrows Special

This looks great...

Can u buy just the pre-classf. Screen

So you can shovel directly into the sluice? I will have to keep following this bad boy

It’s looking good!! Keeping an eye on these!! I’ll be upgrading to these new updates for the A52 !! Great job Keene Eng. INC. !!!

Tear it up Kevin Brown and let us know how it works

Very nice!!

How much for the upgrade

I want one ☝️

Can't wait to buy one

Awsome

I would like to volunteer 🙂

My A52F is set up like this works great. Wish they still sold that one. But this is sweeeet!!!

How much?? I want one..

I just did almost the exact same thing last week to my stream sluice using stainless steel perforated metal with 3/8" holes. Would have used 1/4" holes but didn't have enough of it. Hopefully it works, the streams are iced over up here, I'll be trying it as soon as the ice breaks lose

Now for a header for recirculating ... and a header dredge attachment

Badical

Wow Pat nice improvement this is Bob Howard Prospectors Clame Livermore Caif. I wish you had this when I was in business

SAY THE DAY TO GO THERE I AM IN HUNTINGTON PARK, I AM FROM MEXICO AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOUR NEW MACHINES

Can you give me “new” address in Chatsworth, California???

I will take one

Nice wall art, lol

New A52S Super Sluice Test #1
We went out this last weekend with the new sluice box and the set up was done only in a matter of a few minutes. There was another standard sluice being set up river from us and it took him about 30 to 40 minutes to get the sluice adjusted properly. We also had the advantage of setting up the sluice box just about anywhere we wanted, No rocks to set up, no searching for just the fall on the river etc.
The riffles worked very well the screen did what they were supposed to do. I love the fact that we could take it out and just shovel bank run material directly into the box and no pre-classifying. With the built-in classification system, we could move about a third more material with less effort.
The new A52S needs a few tweaks here and there, and we are working on them now. We will try to test it again this coming weekend.

I can't wait til these are ready! Crisson Gold Mine will have them in stock as soon as they are available.

"Git er done" fellas!

How about a built in level saving even more time for setup

Scott Hill and Jason Stevens you all thought I ran mine hard wow 😮

My only issue with this sluice is that it requires a little bit more effort to clean up. Any thoughts or knowledge shares are appreciated

Are the legs the same setup Keene has for the high banker kit for the A52 sluice box Keene has had them for years ?

Heck yeah!!

Like it!

😍😎LOVE it

My modded a52 no classifying needed dump bucket on and go fill the next one

did you have any trouble with the sluice wanting to float? (lift and go downstream)

you can do that with faster water flow

How much are the stands and can we attach them to the older model A52?

are these new legs out for distrubution yet ? Will Armadillo be selling these ? How much for set of 4 ? . . . . . . . another question ... . is there a Keene Dealer in Boise, Id ?
