outnaboutnak reacted to outnaboutnak in New Nome Offshore Mining Machines
There was a brief shot of one of the large excavator barges in the last episode with a machine in the background. It looked like an excavator and it had four spuds sticking up. Yours? I'll have to go back and look at it again.

I don't know how to attach a photo but we have been operating an elevated excavator/wash plant offshore Nome for two year. We can go into 10' deep water so far. New designs in the works to go deeper. In Nome the sea floor is very gradual so it's some distance out. If anyone is interested I will post a pic of our rig. That is if I can figure out how to do it.
outnaboutnak got a reaction from jeff08xx in The Hanging Flume
I came across this on the net. Its a flume, built on the side of a cliff, literally. Just goes to show you how tough the old timers were. Pretty amazing.
"When the flume was originally built, an estimated 25 men worked three years to build the 10 miles of hanging flume on the cliff"
