Gold Rush Wiki

The Guyanese-style Lavador washplant used by the Hoffman Crew at Redemption Creek Cut on the QOD Claim is a diamond processor. The machine processes low viscosity muddy water created by washing paydirt with high pressure water from the Guyanese version of monitors to turn it into a slurry. That slurry is pumped into the top of the washplant and sluiced for diamonds and gold nuggets. This process is inefficient and misses fine gold.
