Re: Bidders Remorse? High Bid Going to Coty for $800

Whenever I get a new piece of equipment one of the first things I do is a thorough cleanup. I mean taking things apart and really cleaning it.

I have even done this in the bush in Alaska when I find old mining stuff like wooden sluiceboxes. You would be amazed at how much gold gets left in those old wooden sluic boxes.

I never even thohgt about this until talking to Ron Wendt, he told me he always did this. Ron, for those who may not know, was a miner from an old mining family and long time Alaskan history and mining writer.

If you have a chance to get any of his books, they are well worth it, he has many years of mining experience that he has willingly written down. Ron passed away about three years ago.
