What is best time to buy used equipment in Nome

I've got my first week scouting trip to Nome planned June 20. I want to make another trip later in the season in hopes of picking up some prospecting equipment on the cheap to keep in Nome. Also, thanks to all the locals and mining vets who have provided me with awsome advise. You've saved me about 20K in mistake money.

Re: What is best time to buy used equipment in Nome

Start looking right when you get there. There may be stuff still available from last year. At the end of the season last year there were 2 to 3 - 8” dredges for sale. From what I’ve seen, there might be equipment for sale (cheap) as soon as the end of June.
There are a lot of people heading up there this year that are trying to prop up their sumptuous lifestyles by contemplating a trip to Nome. They have a notion that you can get 100 ounces a season off Nome with a dredge, no problem. Once they find out how hard they have to work to get that first ounce, they’ll start rethinking the whole thing. That might take two weeks or two months. It depends on their threshold level. Some might stick it out all the way to the end of the season and sell then.
I can’t remember where I read this, but there were two divers that quit mining because they had a phobia of ocean diving. You never know???

Re: What is best time to buy used equipment in Nome

About 75% of new wannabie miners in Nome last year sold out or abandoned their equipment by the end of July.

But what they were selling was mostly worthless junk that a few minutes of research would have told them not to buy. Like anything made by Dahlke that isn't a pump.

What you really want is to buy from sucessful guys that are upgrading. Like me.
