The Love Of Prospecting


I know we share this love and, almost every prospector tinkers with his or her equipment. And that's exactly how GMGT began.


Before I begin, the difference between the 23” Pay Streak Finder & the 3' River Bed Hog? Feed Rate.

However, one of my videos clearly shows one of my customers "Kevin @ NEGP" hammering his 23” PSF with a full size shovel. And, it still traps the gold!!


Fellow prospectors, I'm not going to sit here and tell you that my GMGT's are the best and cause you to say, Yeah! Yeah! that's what they all say. I'm going to let just a few of my customers tell you what they think.


Please do go and read all customer reviews for yourself.


The 3' River Bed ROCKS

Posted by Gregg on Aug 30th 2018

I am totally blown away at the Green Mountain Gold Trap 3' River Bed Hog. This thing is AWESOME, to say the least.
I once owned a Bazooka Gold Trap. The River Bed Hog has taught me so much in regards to the fluid bed functions.
The inventor states, Clear= Confidence, So True!
Thanks Green Mountain Gold Trap, YOU ROCK!!

Three Foot River Hog GMGT

Very impressed after using the handling and using the GM GoldTrap. It processed fast, was fun to use, NO CLASSIFYING!!, and the set up was much faster then I thought it was going to be. Another great point is the removable trap of course. Didn't have to move the sluice to do a clean out. Kick ass sluice, nice American company, ...highly recommended. Thanks GMGT!

3' River Bed Hog

Posted by Kevin @ New England Gold Prospecting on Aug 31st 2018

This fluid bed design is one amazing piece of equipment I highly recommend for those who want to move lots of materiel. It captures well under 200 mesh gold with ease. I loved it so much, I bought the 23" Pay Streak Finder about a month after buying this one.
Thanks Green Mountain Gold Trap!!

This little GMGT is a great fluid bed sluice, I absolutely love the clean out drawer... Quality built for a prospector by a prospector.

Amazing Product

Posted by John on Aug 30th 2018

I am so impressed with this product, I am going to buy the 3' River Bed Hog next year. Then I can really move some materiel!


My design has been fine tuned to capture fine flour gold down to -300 microns.

It's clear feature gives the operator complete control and eliminates the guess work in set up. Never again will you ask yourself, “Do I have it at the right pitch?” You Will Know For Sure. Clear = Confidence.

The all new patent pending Removable Capture Tray allows for a very quick clean out. It also eliminates the need to lift the whole unit out of the water, saving valuable time.

Excellent, if not superb fluid dynamics throughout the entire Capture Tray. As a result, it can and does sink that gold. And that's where it will stay with proper set up and feed rate.

Just imagine, you know your onto the gold and you've been working very hard to get as much of it as you can. Maybe it's larger gold but, if it's fine flour, how much are you loosing?

With the GMGT, you will know right where your gold is. And your friends, just like mine do, will come over to you and ask, “When Are You Going To Do A Clean Out?”

Friends, I tested this product every which way but Sunday. I tested the materials used to build the GMGT's before even using them, had reps from certain companies come and researched them out so you would get what you deserve.

When I began selling, I was using Acrylic. As of Feb of 2019 I have began using Poly-carbonate / Lexan. This stuff is virtually indestructible and it's what is used for bullet proof glass. 

The structure itself and products used in assembly make it a very solid product.

Got time for a true story. Let's call it a test I didn't plan.

After a day of testing capture rate, which is roughly 98%, I decided to pack up and hike out.

I was in a gorge and my one and only way out was to climb up a four foot bedrock ledge. This ledge lead to my path out.

It was fall time and there were lots of leaves and pine needles on that ledge and, all over the ground.

Long story short, I got just about to the very top and one of my boots slipped on those leaves and pine needles.

At the bottom was jagged bedrock with cobbles, rocks and larger rocks.

All I could think was, this is going to hurt in more than one way.

I went down backwards. I had the 3' River Bed Hog strapped to my shoulder and it ended up behind me.

When I landed, I landed right on the trap. I just knew it had to be broken or cracked.

When I got up, unharmed, to my amazement, there wasn't even a tiny crack.

Since that year, I have added even more structure to the feed end of all models. I want you to get something that's going to last, no matter how much it costs me to do so.

The bottom line is this, you Will love it and, your friends will love it too.

The one thing I can count on if I am prospecting an area with other people around is this. It draws people in. They want to see it in action. They want to know whats inside the trap.

Don't forget to head on over to the official GreenMountain GoldTrap YouTube channel, subscribe, ring the bell and check out all the videos. And also, do a YouTube search. So far, there are a few people out there with videos. I expect there will be more as time goes on.

    BY FAR

    Posted by Donovan Dagenhart on Sep 6th 2019

    The best product in the panning market if your looking to capture super fine gold dust and know where too look! I ordered the 23" paystreak finder and as of yesterday put in my order for the 3' I'm entirely impressed with the set up process as well as clean out, super slick and easy! If anyone in the market for a sluice box I'd recommend this to anyone before I would and I'm a proud owner of a keene super sluice. Looking forward to putting the 3' to use and can be assured I'll upload some videos!

    3' River Bed Hog

    Posted by Ned on Mar 5th 2019

    I recently bought one of your traps. Where I live we have lots of fine flour gold. I bought it due to the claims of another customer of yours in Colorado who told me what his was capturing and, the fact he also bought your mini trap as well.
    This customer is dead on, this trap works great! I have tried other fluid bed styles and this one beats them all.
    Thank you so much.

    The results are amazing!

    Posted by Frank T on Nov 29th 2018

    Hello GMGT.
    I purchased this thinking it wouldn't be any different than my other fluid bed gold traps, I was flat out wrong!
    Like yourself, I didn't always do good with the other two I own. And like you, now I know why!
    And the fine gold it keeps is a mind blower. It's fluidization is amazing to watch and, the fact I can see if any debris gets into the scoop is a huge plus.
    I'm thinking one of my other gold traps tubes are clogged but, I can't tell and if they are, what can I do, Nothing!
    With yours a simple removal of the trap and sticking a finger inside the scoop through the holes takes care of any leaves. And if it's the tubes, a bent gun cleaning tool works great! This thing is Awesome!

    Thanks GMGT.

    Awesome Product

    Posted by Dingus & Eva on Nov 10th 2018

    Hey Joseph, the snow is beginning to fly, opportunities to prospect are minimal, another season winding down..... :( Thanks to your awesome product, Ive had the best season of my life! There is NO other product that offers the instant feedback and information necessary to consistently locate, capture, and collect gold. I use to spend 50% to 75% of my time panning and looking for the best location to set up, now I pick a spot, any spot, and after 5 mins make the decision on weather to stay or move on. If there is gold in the location, it will be present! If not, you can tell everyone you're hunting for garnets and gem stones! Thanks my friend for a super product, making a video I can watch anytime the ice is too thick and the snow is too deep and, adding me in your brochures! Respectfully, ­ Dingus & Eva. (Ron)

    River Bed Hog, what a great product!

    Posted by Jim on Sep 21st 2018

    Hello Joseph!
    sorry I didn't review this when invited but, I wanted to take more time to really pick it apart.
    Everything you claim is true. I have tried it in different conditions and it really does the job well. Love how you say, Clear = Confidence, so true. If someone makes mistakes with these, they are clueless!!
    And the gold it captures, WOW!! It really does keep the flour gold!!
    I absolutely love this thing, It works great!! Thank you so much!!

    What A Product!!

    Posted by Samuel on Sep 11th 2018

    I have used them all and I can say, green mountain gold trap beats them all!! I love how you can see just what's going on and knowing it's set up right as a result is a dream. And the clean out!! I LOVE IT!! It's fast and easy and you can get right back to work without rebuilding the setup...
    Thanks Green Mountain Gold Trap!! HUGE thumbs up.

Always remember to block the water flow on the skid plate before doing a cleanout. There is no need to block off the scoop plate.
