Wash Plant Operations: Some dandy setups with vibrating screens and trommels for gold

 These are a couple of good gold wash plants that work very well on many mining operations and this of course depending on your requirements. This type of screen worked very well with a long service life,working mostly sandy bedrock and loose gravel.

With modified high-pressure wash water is does well in some clays, this is matched of course with your screen analysis of your pay gravel

 This setup I had with two trommels served me very well during a time we had hungry ground and low gold prices. This is a set up that is really reasonably cheap and you can usually keep one going all the time. We worked competitively most of the time and we got some impressive yards washed. I am exploring this option again because the numbers look pretty good against just one big plant. You can get a lot of control of your gravel and should always make good rock in the box runs which will net you the gold. Double trommels are surprisingly easy to keep going. Lot of muck going through my two plants!!

We trenched in front of this wash plant on ruby creek till we found the pay zone and spent a long fall on the continental divide making gold in the Big Hole of montana. Prices of gold was pretty low but we got by.

This is a good robust design plant that knocked out a 1000 ounces of gold its first two years. We leased some property that had some small remnants of pay gravel and being portable and fast we did good. We hit some pockets of nugget gold and made that property a lot of fun. I have some video of that property to check out for some operating procedures that might help out.
