Introduction to the Gold Cube:
The Gold Cube was developed during 2009 and 2010 to recover gold fines from gold
bearing sands that are less then 8 mesh containing flat particles of gold. The Gold Cube
can do this alone, or in conjunction with other gold mining equipment such as high-
bankers, sluice boxes and dredges.
The Gold Cube can be used for the clean-up at the end of a gold mining expedition on
location, or it can be used at home to process the gold bearing sand you have brought
back. The Gold Cube is made from a series of nested trays that are 5 x 12 x 15 inches
that is stacked in a Zigzag fashion. The three stacks Gold Cube will work in about 90%
of all gold sands in the world, for the other 10% you will need to add trays. This is a single section of the Gold Cube

the 1849 gold rush, but they have plenty of modern compatriots in what is now called
small scale gold mining. These are people that hold another job, but go gold prospecting
on their time off. One of these miners was Mike Pung.

Mike found gold on an expedition to Lake Superior Michigan, he doesn’t want to say
where, but it looks like it was on one of the beaches along Luce County just east of our
nation’s first mining rush for copper.
The gold found on the beaches of Lake Superior was brought there by the continental
glaciers that had their origin in Ontario where one of the great gold provinces of the
world is located, the Abitibi Gold Province. This is where most of the placer gold found
