A floating Wash plant designed and built by Rob Towner for Mining Sapphires

A floating Wash plant designed and built by Rob Towner for Mining Sapphires

This is another one of my signature style wash plants. I designed and had this plant ready to wash gravel in six weeks. This is what I call my snap together system.  The floats were from  out of Houston Texas. The other components were from my equipment yard and Goldfield supplied the jigs.

This plant was designed for Sapphires and gold. The recovery for the primary mineral sapphire was good. Gold was a by product. This style of plant will work for most Diamond, Gold, and Sapphire  alluvial projects that groundwater is encountered.  We were digging at a depth of 20 ft. with a two and a half yard excavator.
