Keene 6" Suction Gold Dredge

Shop Online   Facebook   AMDS Forum   Site Map   Contact Us
Keene 6" gold dredges are used by many professional gold dredgers. Once you are into the gold it is the volume of gold bearing gravel processed that decides whether an operation is profitable or not and a 6" moves the volume! The 3-stage sluice offers enhanced fine gold recovery, and the more hours you operate, the more important this will be. Keene 6" 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 hose.

Keene Oversize Powerjet with Quick Coupler System
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.
