“You work hard to get the gold out of the dirt…
We work hard to get the dirt out of your gold.”


Below are videos showing some of the ways we process gold down to 300 and 800 mesh. Since each dirt has different composition, each is processed in its own way. The use of Gold Hog and Dream Mats are sometimes more effective.

The M7 Wave Table is a great site-specific table for fine and flour gold.
This flap is the best and most cost-efficient way of breaking surface tension and preventing the loss of fine floating gold.

 

About the Gold Shack

When we obtained claims in the McQuesten River Valley of the Yukon, we found the gold to be in the range of 80 mesh to 1400 mesh. At the time, there was no way of processing that super fine/micron gold, so it became mandatory that we find a way. With a lot of research and trial and error, we developed various methods for fine gold separation. The Gold Shack was established to offer the services to others.

How we charge for Gold Separation

The Gold Shack charges a percentage of the dry weight of the gold processed. When the price of gold goes up, we both profit. When the price goes down, we both take the hit.

Do you smelt gold?

We do not smelt gold after cleaning, as the gold buyer will smelt it again and do their own tests for metal composition, whether the Miner brings it in cleaned and smelted, or just cleaned.

Privacy Policy

The first time we meet a client, we sign a non disclosure agreement with them. No information is given out on a clients gold values or processing procedures. Like in Vegas... what happens in the Shack, stays in the Shack!

Future Developments

In the Yukon, the next gold rush is in the fine golds left over by the dredge mining from the past, and in the processing of residual fine gold trapped in black sand.

We are developing a proprietary process to process fine gold from 800 to 1400 mesh, as well as the processing of black sands. We are developing a system for commercial sale, but it is not expected to be ready until 2019 for beta testing. If you wish to be involved in beta testing or just informed about developments, please email Hector to let him know your interest.
