Gold Shaking Tables
Shaking table consist of small riffles over which a slurry fine pay dirty is passed. The gold settles into the riffles and through a vibrating action is directed to one side of the table where it is collected. The tails are passed across the middle of the table or remain in suspension. Middlings, material that is partially settled may be collected. Heads and middlings are commonly reprocessed on multi-stage tables. Shaking tables can handle materials from 15 µm to 3.0 mm.
