Introduction to "underwater blow mining!" ( 10:24:41 SunFeb 16 2014 )

It is quite easy to rig a blowing hose and blow-nozzle from a small pump to facilitate the excavation of hard-pack on the bottom of a stream, or push small amounts of material out of the way. There is even a way to push (blow) material through a hose to a recovery system without using any suction system on the bottom. All this, while breathing underwater on a hookah system.

The beginnings of a substantial discussion on underwater blow mining, along with news about another fantastic new claim we are making available on the Klamath River in northern California, can be found in our February newsletter right here:

With all this, and a few other things in the works, we are predicting the upcoming season will be our best ever!

I'm all set up, equipment-wise, for the blow mining process. I read through the newsletter looking for information on the "push through a hose to a recovery system" process but couldn't find anything.
So, I'm sort of scratching my head to figure this one out.
Has anyone actually tried this? How, exactly, does this method work? Any photos of the equipment used?
Thanks,

n2gold

ps: just made my donation into the current fundraiser. Come on folks, time to pony up and keep the good fight going. We can win!

Yeah; we put the system through trials last August and September, and then passed one of the prototypes off to some members who were looking for an alternative to underwater gravel transfer.

Stay tuned!
