Big Sky Gold Mining

Big Sky Gold mining
We are saddled up and washing gold again. We finished up some reclamation; have a good stockpile of pay gravel,  and a new mining plan; its 16 hrs a day mining in Montana.

I do have internet but its painfully slow as we are very remote. Blogs will be a bit sparse.

Check out the July issue of Rock and Gem. I wrote an article about gold mining in Montana.

A good little trommel wash plant going to recover some Montana gold

We finished up a wash plant that we refurbished and it worked very well. The startup today went well and our clients should like this trommel plant as its work will be for sure busy this summer.

They have an eager crew and I anticipate that they will recover a lot of gold this summer. We wish them all the best.

We will get on the rest of the summer on our gold mining placer project and wish all my fellow gold miners best of luck!

A good gold wash plant ready to ship out

My brother Les after our day of finishing up some details that always pop up as you are commissioning a plant. Les is a tireless craftsman and the best can do guy I ever met.

We spent the day loading up the conveyor and getting tools ready for the setup of the wash plant for our clients. We will spend a few days making sure everything is on track and hand over the plant to the new gold miners

We wish them the best of luck and hope they get a thousand ounces this year!!!  I like this plant and wish they would trade it for mine on our project.

With a few weeks of reclamation and repairs to our plant we hope to be running gravel in a couple of weeks on our mining project.

A good finished wash plant in Montana

We just finished up a gold wash plant  for  our client. A few loose odds and ends and the required guarding of the plant and she will be making Montana gold soon.

This plant will be a good fit for our clients and another Montana gold mine will soon be underway!
