|Keene 5" gold dredges can be outfitted with
a 4" nozzle opening to work in many locations in Alaska without
getting a full Annual Placer Mining Application (APMA)*. National
Forests in Alaska usually consider suction dredges with 4" and
smaller nozzle openings as not automatically requiring a full plan
of operations*. The Keene 5" gold dredge uses
the famous Keene 3-stage box. The 3-stage sluice offers
enhanced fine gold recovery, and the more hours you operate, the
more important this will be. Keene 5" dredges of course 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
Keene 5" Gold Suction Dredge with 3-Stage Sluice

customer input went into these 5 inch models. All 5 inch
dredges feature our 3 Stage Sluice Box for superior fine
gold recovery. These dredges are the perfect size for the
serious minded prospector who requires portability without
sacrificing professional results. The flotation system is

running and deep water. Engine and compressor options are

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.
*Permit requirements can vary - always
check with the appropriate land management agency.
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.
