- Title: Prospector pouring dirt which he thinks contains gold in sluice box. The sluice box is so placed that the water of the stream naturally runs through it, taking off the lighter dirt and sticks and stones while the heavy gold clings to the bottom of the box. The water is caught in the pan for examination to find that proverbial nugget which by some chance might wash through. Pinos Altos, New Mexico
