Description of Australian Banjo


A banjo looks like a dry washer but you ladle water into it. It is good for processing material in a creek or river bed where there are puddles and no flowing water.
This is the first time I have heard of the device and it looks like it makes sense. An interesting feature of this is the use of pipe wrapped around the device with holes drilled to spray water down onto the gravels and sand.
