    Wash plant for mini excavator

    this trommel looks bullet proof, one thing I see is if you wanted to just throw a 1/4yd bucket from a mini in it that you probably would have a lot of the material 1/3 the way down the drum before it was soaked or tumbled good. Its going straight in instantly, referring to entry #16

    What If

    thanx RotGrub, it seems this day and age a guy has to pick his poison, im way up here in Alaska and slowly trying to graduate from dredging my claims to mining them this summer, so I am sure I will be getting more and more on board with the lower 48 mining issues, they will reflect up here more and more I suppose
  4. Anybody know what I need to expect for my 2016 APMA permits in regards to the aerial photo/photos? Under 5ac. and on state land. I have the bulletin from a few yrs ago but by no means photos now with all the snow, overflow, and ice are gonna show any detail of the creek. Thanx, Carter

    Cleaning Contaminated Gold

    Also it is a wonderful example of what the modern miner can be doing to help clean up the past!! Seen pictures of modern dredgers in the lower 48 with piles of lead(fishing sinkers, ect.) that got removed from streams too.

  11. id like to see the guy that can run a skid steer for 10 hrs straight!!!
  12. So fill me in Geo, you still using your plants you built out of unistrut and 2 skid steers, mining long rows of tailing piles that have a road beside them, advancing down stream? You are running coarse tailings with no water, aren't you?(nugget hunter!!)
  13. Yep, ive been into DNR in Fairbanks many times but was hoping someone on here went through the process and told me the hoops/timeframe they delt with

    Mining Based Reality Tv Shows

    I myself would like to have been the first one on the show to slap the kids foul mouth, might've helped the ratings, probably got fired or they may have started a new show with me on it!!!
  15. So you are mining going down the creek? You meant up the creek, right.?
