|Keene 2.5" gold dredges are very popular for
those wanting a portable suction dredge at a lower price than
larger gold dredges. These gold dredges are perfect for day trips or
exploration where mobility is of prime importance. Remember that 2.5"
dredges do not move very much volume and so are best used on or near
bedrock where gold values are most concentrated. A 2.5" dredge is
the smallest that can be outfitted with an air compressor for those
wanting to work underwater. The Keene 2.5" dredge is exceptionally
powerful with a motor and pump combination capable of running a 3"
gold dredge. This means you can throttle down for better fuel
efficiency or throttle up for extra suction power. Keene 2.5"
dredges feature their oversize powerjet with quick coupling system.
This dramatically reduces clogging and in the rare event of a clog,
allows for quick and easy access to the hose. Compare to the
competition and see why a Keene 2.5" suction dredge is your best
value in a portable gold dredge.
Keene Oversize Power Jet with Quick Coupler System
We have taken the standard Power Jet and
created a more efficient, easy to use and overall
superior jet! The new design involves a slight
enlargement of the jet tube, making it a bit larger than
the interior of the suction hose. The result of this
modification is a smooth, seamless flow from hose to
jet. Rock jams and other obstructions are virtually
eliminating downtime. The quick coupling features two
side mounted snap levers for quick and easy joining.
AMDS has Keene suction dredges for gold and other
valuable minerals. The suction dredge is the best method for the small miner to recover gold from underwater deposits. Gold dredging is a relatively inexpensive method of mining for small one or two man mining operations, and can provide reasonable returns for the hard-working miner.
Keene Engineering is the oldest and largest manufacturer of portable
suction gold dredging equipment.
Note: the State of Alaska requires a permit for all suction dredges
operating in the State of Alaska. See our
Suction Dredging Regulations page for details.
