Re: poor mans test plant!

my creek runs through hundreds of old tailing piles so thought I would show some pictures of me "testing"the creek with a little dredge.In the first one you can see the Cut between two old piles....

HMMMM Walt,

"Reclaiming" those old piles, eh? Cleaning up after those "Old, Evil, Enviro-destroying, making piles of Au rich and unattractive concentrates" old timers?

Good for you!

One thing to consider is that once you have disturbed an old tailings pile then you become liable for its reclamation I was told. Something to consider.

Re: poor mans test plant!

thanks! and once again my fellow miners are always welcome at our camp,bring your detector,highbanker or dredge.But be advised I will pick your brain and might even drink your beer!:smile:I always enjoy visitors and have a few weekend miners that gladly leave 10% for boys and end up with a free worker who always talks dad into loosening up the pile there working on with the loader:devil:
