Alaskan mining videos

RKC on Golddredging forum (New Zealand) has some old Alaska mining movies linked. http://golddredgingforum.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=historical Jim

Re: Alaskan mining videos

I found it interesting to see the old bucket dredges and the old hydraulic operations in operation, even just in the brief film clips.

Isn't RKC actually Trevor who posted here quite a bit in the past?

Thanks for bringing it to our attention growler.

Joe

Joe, I dont know if RKC is Trevor (a good poster!). Some of these films show to me the meaning of 50% (or less) recovery. Jim

Re: Alaskan mining videos

HMMMMM,

Wrong again - not just short term wrong, but rather I've been wrong about that mix-up for a longtime now.

Thanks for clearing that up Jim.

Does anyone else have any other links to old film clips on hydraulic mining or bucket line dredges? I find them to be really fascinating.

Joe

My rememberer is not too good, but I think Trevor's last name is Alty, whereas Rob's last name is Craig.

Re: Alaskan mining videos

When I was a kid my grandpa took us to see what he said was the last bucket line dredge operating in California. I would have been about 8 or 9, but I have a pretty clear memory of the enormous, enormously noisy machine churning up a huge pond of muddy water.

He took us out there just so we could see it before it was gone forever, and I'm glad he did.
