Gold Sluice – GoldMasta

APT have introduced an even easier entry level for artisanal miners wanting to begin production. The GoldMasta is a smart gold sluice that incorporates the latest technology to maximize recoveries whilst also producing a high grade concentrate. The matting is easy to clean making for a quick harvest cycle and two or more GoldMastas can be placed in series to obtain an even higher recovery. Construction is from a durable non-corroding material and, with no power required, the operation can be commenced as soon as the unit arrives on site.

With a capacity of 1tonne per hour, the GoldMasta gold sluice makes an ideal scavenger after APT’s renowned GoldKacha concentrator, resulting in a compact package with extremely high recovery – a truly winning combination for entrants to progress two. If the full potential tonnage of the GoldKacha (2+ tph) is required, two GoldMastas can be used in parallel on the tails.

Compact & Portable Benefit

Fits into a small crate (L: 1500mm x w: 600mm x H: 380mm) & weighs < 24kg which makes it easy to move & transport around the world. This makes it very suitable for small-scale miners.

Mercury Free Benefit

No harmful chemicals are required. APT advocates safe & mercury-free mining practices.



The GoldMasta is readily available and can ship out soon after an order is made. This makes setting up quick and easy.

The GoldMasta can process up to 1ton / hour. Two GoldMastas can be used in parallel for a higher output.
