Canadian edition concentrators ship first class international USPS. great price but slow shipping...customs , customs....
may hold items a week before clearing so shipping time varies 10-20 days
All orders are shipped on a first come basis as the orders come in. that said we receive hundreds of orders each week so it does take us a few days to process every order. 04/01/12 turn a round time
on orders this month is 2 business days.
Crazy busy thank you guys and gals...
We ship on a first ordered first shipped basis....that said we have hundreds of orders each week, most times over 100 orders a day. So it takes us a couple of days to just get to your order. have faith we ship as soon as possible. Typically it takes 2 business days for us to ship out your order. during high volume times like holidays this turn-a-round time doubles.
Thank you guys
Sorry about the long processing time right now but we are blessed with a high sales volume during the high gold prices....
Thank you for your patience
Thank you sir! I appreciate the professionalism and quick service. I'll be sure to talk about your product with the folks in our prospecting club.
I ran some concentrates through the concentrator today and it performed perfectly. I panned the run-off from the sluice and did not find a spec of gold. However, the material that the sluice held on to had all the gold. I know you tested it plenty, but you can count me as a "tested and pr oven customer." Well done, sir!

Thanks buddy, I tested my new concentrator as soon as i got it home. although all i had to test it with was a pile of old concentrates that i had already panned out last year.
your little machine has already paid for it's self!
i found gold in this old material that i was going to throw away!
this thing was so fast and easy to use, i just can't believe what i had to go through in the past.
thank you!

i must tell you that i was a bit skeptical about this gadget! but for the price i shot the dice and came away a winner !!
for years i have been a firm believer of the_ _ _ _ bowl.
Well i just listed that old bowl on Craig's list. Does that tell you anything about us old dogs and the ability to learn new tricks!
I sincerely wish you the best in your new business, with good equipment and low prices you are going to go far!!

I received my concentrator last night and could not wait to try it out. I ran about two gallons of old concentrates that I had previous panned and decided that amalgam was the only way to get for the remaining gold. Well I was wrong because even though there was a lot of very fine gold it turned out to have some nice specks that I had missed. The concentrator captured most if not all of the fine gold and I can easily say that if anything is left in the black sands it would not be worth my effort. In an hour of running my concentrator it has more then paid for itself. I have already convinced my buddies Dean and Steve to buy one. We are going dredging this weekend and after our other buddy sees it run I am sure he will be sold.
I know that Dean has been emailing you about the A-52 hopper and I am sure we will be buying several of those in the near future. Best of luck with your business and please keep coming up with great products.
Thank you,
