This is an example of a well tuned gold placer mining operation

This is an example of a well tuned gold placer mining operation
This is what a well tuned mining operation should looks like.

Everything is kept tight. We need 5 truckloads per hour in a semi circle around the wash plant. This system we are using maximizes the efficiency on this project.

There is plenty of time to keep tails in check and oversize rock to go back into the pit. Everything is kept on short hauls 80% of our material is handled by the rock truck.

 My brother Les is keeping a watchful eye on the operations.
