When I use the sluice I just pull out the big rocks and run the rest through.
But that is just how I do it.
Don't think too much, you'll create a problem that wasn't even there in the first place.

Now that being said you then have to compare the amount of gold you're getting when classifying and then run some material by only removing the bigger rocks by hand and compare the gold you're getting, then do the math, is the time spend classifying getting more gold per time sluicing compared to just removing large rocks by hand.
It all comes down to time versa gold recovered, sometimes it better to lose a little gold out the end of your sluice by not classifying, then at other times if you're in a great area you will do better classifying.

i would suggest you get a cheap metal detector and you can run it over the rocks you throw out every now and again, looking at them it usually a waste of time as mostly the rocks in the desert are coated with clay and i have found a few small nuggets in the rock tailings which were undistingushable until the beeper beeped on them and i rinsed them off with water. and its extremely rare to fine these nuggets so just try to run as much material as you can over all.
