    Visiting an old ore processing facillity

    This story is about an old Florspar mine above Jamestown. It was being used as a dump. This was near the old Burlington mine. No trace anymore of this or the Burlington. They have been entirely reclaimed. http://golddredger.com/fluoritemine/fluorsparmine1.htm

    Visiting an old ore processing facillity

    I wandered around the area quite a bit in the late 90's. I have a lot of pictures taken in the Rip Van Damn mine a couple of miles downstream from Jamestown. I'll hve to dig them up and post a few.

    Visiting an old ore processing facillity

    My pictures were taken in the late 1990's. Research shows that they were of the Bueno Mill. As close as I can make it, the mill was built in the late 70"s. It seems there is some interest in reopening or rebuilding the mill. There are newspaper articles and pictures from 2012. http://www.gettyimages.fr/photos/bueno-mill?excludenudity=true&sort=mostpopular&mediatype=photography&phrase=bueno mill You can see more pictures of some of the equipment shown on my web page at the above link. I will do a little more looking as I'm interested in following up. Leonard
  5. This is from a visit in Colorado about 20 years ago. It's probably still there, just in worse shape. A lot of good equipment just left to rot! This was a mining area near Jamestown, Colorado. Flotation mill Leonard
  6. All equipment has been sold. Pages are for information only Here's a setup using a horizontal centrifuge. It's been sold long ago but the pictures still apply. It's somewhat larger that what you wanted. Portable plant
  7. Traffic is way down on most forums. I've heard this form others also. I still check 4 gold forums every day but don't post much as my dredging days are over. It was a great run though but it's hard to fight old age. Leonard

    California Flooding

    I was only there for a day or so. I was using just a pan. I watched a guy using a homemade sluice made out of plywood with the rough side up and no riffles in it at all. He was just shoveling it in and there was gold all over the plywood. We went back the next year and were dredging. We found some really nice gold in areas that weren't worked. Not in multiple ounce category but nice gold. You can see stories on 2 trips at http://golddredger.com/bdownie1.htm http://golddredger.com/downieindex.htm http://golddredger.com/rivercrossing/rivercrossing1.htm Leonard

    We Are Miners

    I saw it on another site and I thought it was great! Leonard
  11. I was just out of the hospital from 3 weeks of battling meningitis with 200 antibiotic IV's. I would have liked seeing you. I have a couple of good 16-1 and Allegheny stories that I tell sitting around the campfire. It's an interesting place. Leonard
  12. I had a chance to do a little prospecting there about 15 years ago. I even found a little gold. Actually, it's me holding the Whopper. I've never found anything that big. Leonard

    Ebay Chinese Jaw Crusher

    All you need is someone that is willing to spend their own money for the forum and the time required to monitor it. After you have that a few years later, you might have enough members to make it worth while. This forum is relatively new and wouldn't have the followers it has this soon if it wasn't for the magazine. That brought a large number of big name members immediately. New forums are hard to start. Even when they are as good as this one is. Thanks for the forum, Scott. I visit every day. Leonard
