MotherSucker "Prospector" 2 N 1 - w/Bucket Sleeve


MotherSucker Hand Dredge Made In Canada - MADE IN CANADA!

Developed and Manufactured by MotherLode Prospecting Supplies Ltd. since 2012, - The ORIGINAL 2 'n' 1 HAND DREDGE!!

Affordably Priced, Durable Easily Packed, Quickly Repairable in the Field ( w/replacement parts), and is now being used by Prospectors WORLD WIDE!!!

2 N 1 ( some refer to it as a Hybrid Hand Dredge ), means you can convert this tool into a "Sniper" for getting into submerged potholes and bedrock cracks, or quickly switch it back to "Prospector Mode" for general recovery of submerged paydirt in a stream or other water source. ( even works under water ).

We have been told by many happy customers that the MotherSucker is simply the best hand dredge out there - and we agree. It's unique, moves large volumes of material and is versatile. But it also breaks down so you can carry it in a large backpack ( see Jeff Williams Video Below ).

The most asked question we get is...… Are you allowed to use a MotherSucker in place of a shovel to hand pan on your claim in British Columbia?

Some people have expressed concern that the MotherSucker is not allowed in British Columbia, however, We are not aware of any Act or Regulation that prohibits the use of a MotherSucker to hand pan on your claim in British Columbia.

The Mineral Tenure Act indicates:
Recreational hand panning
  (1)Subject to subsection (2), a person who is not a free miner may hand pan for recreation purposes.
  (2)A person must not hand pan on a valid mineral title unless the person receives permission from the recorded holder of the mineral title.

The definition of “hand pan” in accordance with the Mineral Tenure Act is:

"hand pan" means to wash mineralized earth and gravel by agitation in a hand held pan so as to separate and recover those minerals or placer minerals having the greatest specific gravity;

In order to hand pan, we know that the material is not going to just magically jump into your gold pan, therefore, you will need to use something to put the material into your pan.

  • The Mineral Tenure Act does not say that you can use a shovel, but it is inferred that this is the traditional way to put material into a pan and that a shovel is hand powered.
  • A MotherSucker is simply another means of conveying material into a gold pan.
  • It is also hand powered, does the exact same job and most would argue less disruptive to the environment than a shovel.
  • For your perusal, you may refer to the Act via this link http://www.bclaws.ca/civix/document/id/complete/statreg/00_96292_01

    And the regulations via this link http://www.bclaws.ca/civix/document/id/complete/statreg/529_2004

    Those of us with any experience know how valuable a product like this is, not only as a production unit, but also as a tool for sucking out those under water bedrock cracks and potholes, so why spend $250 - $300 on 2 units you have to pack in and out, when one will do the job of 2?

    Use it in the "Sniper" mode for getting into those pot holes and submerged bedrock cracks, or in the "Prospector" production mode for testing, cleaning out under boulders and general use in river beds, and especially those excavation holes from highbanking, etc to get all those values the shovel leaves behind.

    You can't get to all the gold by shovelling alone, especially in bedrock cracks, under boulders and the bottom of pot holes where the shovel can't get to.

    In fact, even the simple act of shovelling causes gold to be driven deeper to the bottom and into cracks and divots where the shovel can't go, therefore, the only way is to use a suction device to siphon it right up off the bottom just like a vacuum cleaner.

    But, mechanized dredging in many areas is either illegal, or can take weeks to get written permission after submitting the complicated paperwork. A recent California Court has all but banned mechanized dredging. So where does that leave you?

    Our basic "MotherSucker Prospector" Hand Dredge, with a 1 1/4" tip, is designed to suck up those elusive values on the up stroke by using simple "non-mechanical" suction and on the down stroke, pump those values into a recovery bucket via a lightweight "lined" 6' flex hose [ not a cheap unlined "Poop Tube" as others are using.

    We use durable white PVC pipe, it is less reactive to temperature and sunlight.

    It`s light weight, and comes with a time-proven leather seal for long life and superb suction. It's very easy to use, and it's long length means you can get deeper with less stooping which equals less fatigue.

    If you do not own one of these hand dredges, you are losing gold, and probably lots of it, or working much too hard for what you are getting.

    You will wonder how you ever got along without it.

    Please check with your local regulations before using.
