Dry Washers are used primarily in areas where water is not available, such as arid and desert areas. Dry Washing for gold goes back to the earliest days of gold discovery, where water was not available to separate the valuable minerals from waste sand and rock.
The early miners devised crude methods of utilizing the flow of air and vibration to concentrate and separate valuable materials like gold and gemstones from sand and gravel.
Modern improvements make drywashing for gold far more practical and efficient.

In the past, most dry concentration was slow and inefficient. Even today, some dry washers have trouble recovering gold after the top layer of dry sand has been removed, due to the moist sand and gravel below the surface. New technological improvements allow modern units such as the 151 drywasher model made by Keene to help dry out this material and increase gold recovery to very high levels.
