I have included a link for those of you interested in building your own rocker box. A rocker box has screen for classifying material near water. It has a sluice type construction that water runs down to further classify material. The box containing these elements is rocked while water is poured at one end and runs down to the other.
In an earlier post I drew a very rough drawing of a rocker box I built – included were some photos.
This PDF set of drawings provided by The Minnesota Gold Prospectors is very detailed and very good. Click the link below and download the plans. It’s free!

The key thing to remember about silver is that it charts in parabolic curve. That is, it rises with slight drawbacks until it reaches an apex from which it USUALLY plunges. The longterm investor in silver must watch the curve and decide if elements are in place for silver to drop precipitously.
Silver rose splendidly in 2011, reaching $50 an ounce. It now steadily proceeds around $31 an ounce. This is certainly a big shot compared to a couple of years ago, but the question is, have we seen the highs, or is this a consolidation period from whence the silver will explode to the upside.
