A new Montana wash plant in the making, an old gold mining veteran getting ready to produce gold again

I recently purchased this old 1938 pitcher style washplant. It has the base for a good trommel scrubbing plant.

We just started cutting off the old worn out parts and are going to retrofit it hopefully rock ready in two weeks.

We will be moving it to our new property here in montana. It will be offered for sale and should be a good one.

I am just figuring out the new retrofit and recovery system. A new drive system and trunions will be in order.

A good 35 or 40 ft stacking system and she will be ready to go.

We are replacing the old sluiceboxes
and going with strictly a gravity recovery system. I hope to be on the property by the end of the month.

We have lots of work to do in the next three weeks.
