Hey guys,

A couple of times now I have found a crevice that is quite narrow- too narrow for my favourite little digging tool (a 3 pronged garden tool with the outside prongs cut off), and yet I see gold in the crevice - I even picked a small bit out.

To make matters worse, often there is some water in there, which I assuming is washing that gold off the sides and it would quickly sink to the clay/mud bottom.

Assuming one is unable to break open the crevice (I’d prefer not to - I want the crevicing filling up with gold for next time!), what tools / techniques do you guys use for getting that slurry out of there?

Cheers,
Mike

Hard to say without a pic, but I would try and fill it with water and suck up the contents with a yabby pump.
You can make adaptors to fit over the end to get in small spots.
Maybe you could bust it open just a bit. If it's only a little crevice you could even try a snuffer bottle.
Use the search function for crevicing tools, there are plenty of ideas out there.

Doesn't look like he makes these anymore but you could make something like it yourself.

That one that ryan27 makes is bloody brilliant, the best thing is if you copycat it you can make it much longer to suit your needs, but the scoop part is what makes it.

Two Toes makes one out of a wiper blade, very strong and a little springy

Wandering around Bunnings or even Aldi sometimes surprises you what you can find. There are no rules, whatever works!

The one on the left is handy, a bit of flat bar can even get in and dig a crevice out, the tool on the right was something I found in the shed, dunno what it is but gets into a crevice! and has a bladed end for opening up really tight ones

Two Toes Knows his stuff and is ingenious at knocking up DIY projects out of scrap you would normally toss out or walk by. Good channel to subscribe to.

Something cheap (and maybe nasty) I just saw on eBay, could prob add a 60cm or so nozzle to it and turn it into a crevice sucker without much fuss, just not sure of the internals of it? Might clog a little but not bad for $7 But if you are seeing actual pickers sitting just out of reach I'm sure this would suck them up.

Nice - thanks all.

I was thinking about getting one of those plastic water spray containers (the ones that have the hand pump on top of it to put compressed air into it), but reverse the valve and pump so that I can suck air out of the container. Once I have generated a sufficient vacuum I would then dangle the partially disassembled spray nossle into the crevice to suck up the water, grit and gold. Not sure if it’ll work yet....

It’s deep enough that my knuckles got a workout.

The problem is the water - I’m guessing the gold just drops in deeper as it gets washed when I try to get it out...

My sister was using my Triton ute and had gone into Woolworths, Lithgow, the open carpark itself is very small probably only 40 or so vehicles max. She said she was in there about 15 mins to walk out to find 2 pricks with screwdrivers, sockets and shifters, taking the Hella spotlights, cb & uhf antennas, mudflaps, towball and roof racks off my truck in broad daylight, she called for help to no avail, some people actually put their heads down and walked into the store like they had blinkers on, some were just standing there watching too scared or perhaps too ignorant to say anything. The Triton was parked about 15 metres from the front doors of the store!
