Piglet Flare Summary…

The brand new Piglet Flare mini highbanker has been under development for almost a year, and we are proud to launch it early.  A lightweight, portable highbanker, that blends unique features of our larger units, into a portable size.  The unit comes complete with all matting pre-made and installed.  The unit is VERY efficient and can run over 60 buckets an hour of UNCLASSIFIED material and still maintain a 98% capture rate down to 100 mesh gold. 

NOTE: There are LOTS of details on this page, so please read them ALL.

You can get this style handle at Lowes or Home Depot.

Recommended Pumps

You can run ANY pump as long as it puts out 4000 GPH and has roughly 38 PSI+ The PSI (pressure) is what gives the header box the great washing action.  LARGE pumps can be used, just neck them down and use a ball valve if you need to reduce flow more than idle.  In general… ELECTRIC pumps, such as bilge pumps, don’t have the PRESSURE needed to power the washing action. 

This is the pump Doc shows in the video. Should run about $170 with shipping.

Extension only for current Piglet owners.

Attaching the Flare to your current mini.

Install dampener mat and lay flare on flat surface. Leave a SMALL 3/16″ space between the top of the flare and the mini bottom leg bracket. Drill holes, attach bolts and washers as needed. NOTE: We supply extra washers to fill any gaps as older minis may have a space which is normal.  It will NOT impact the performance of the unit, but allows the flare to be used with ALL versions of the mini. 

Packing Up

Tips on Running

Set the unit up on a downhill slope if possible. This will LOWER the header box and make it easier to feed. The lower the better to prevent sore shoulders.

Start with the upper box at a 9 degree pitch and the lower about 5 degrees. Play around with the pitch and make sure you see fine black sand in the mats.

We clean the unit out about 2-3 times a day. Some people just lean the moss out to check and see if there is good gold.
