If Cliff built it, you can be confident it’ll work for you. Our gold trommels are job tested and jobsite proven worldwide to get the gold out of all different soil types, even clay. At C&S Sales we make all our trommel cylinders out of stainless steel because they last longer, saving you money in the long run. Steel, aluminum and stainless are the primary materials in our machines for all critical and high wear areas. No plastic is substituted for items that really need to be made out of metal. The result is a machine that works flawlessly, with less wear, breakage and parts replacement.

How A Gold Trommel Works
“A placer gold trommel or gold wash plant is a rotating machine used to separate gold bearing material from dirt, sand and rock(referred to as: “material”). To accomplish this task, gold trommels use a rotating cylinder with many holes of a given size to separate the gold from the material as it flows through the trommel. The material is loaded into the trommel via a hopper, and the material is sprayed with water as it passes into the rotating cylinder drum. The action of the rotating cylinder drum combined with the water breaks apart the different materials. Any material larger than the holes cut into the cylinder will be forced on through the drum onto a tailings tray to be deposited onto the coarse tailings pile. The smaller gold-bearing material will fall into the sluice box below, where the black sands and gold are trapped, while the remaining waste travels out the lower end of the box onto a fine tailings pile. This process is repeated until the sluice box is full and needs to be cleaned. The black sand concentrates and gold are flushed from the sluice box into a container and then panned or run through a gold screen or a concentrator to further separate the material”. “Cliff Simonsen: miner, manufacturer and owner at: C & Sales”.
