Placer Mining Strategies: Keeping your mine site neat and tidy

This is one of our mine sites and what I expect from a mine site after you get it dialed in from the chaos of startup.

You have your excavator up where you can see what is happening in the hopper, good steady feed rate, you know what is happening on the front end as well as the backend.

 Your pay gravel is starting to stockpile up nicely. Flat even runs up for your haul truck. Keeping your mine site very tidy will pay you very well in the long run. There is absolutely no chaos going on here.

Everything is much easier on the equipment. Once you are dialed in like this it makes it so much easier to plan your hauling and stripping programs and keep rock in the box.
 I can say it does not  hurt to have a good Montana blue sky in there for sure either!!!
