This video is an update to one of our original NQ Explorers videos where we demonstrated the use of an 1850s pattern gold cradle or rocker box. The video is in three parts, feel free to jump to the part that interests you the most at the following timestamps (or just watch it all to get the full cradling experience!):
0.00 – Introduction. 0:47 – Part 1: History of the Gold Cradle in Australia. 3:06 – Part 2: Build Your Own – the Anatomy of a Gold Cradle. 14:33 – Part 3: Field Trip! Cradling for Gold the Old Timer’s Way. 27:34 – The Cleanup.
