    A few years back we set up a highbanking operation on a high bench that had been worked in the 20s.. the OTers hadn't finished the area so we shoveled into our highbanker for a few days, wish I had a photo of that have one somewhere but no access right now. Was an interesting dig, hard work for sure.. we had to pump water up to this bench but had a 8hp motor and pump that worked well.. Backbreaking for sure but we got some gold........Steve H, Gary C and myself......

    Attachment 1730855 Found a photo of the high banking setup on the bench. We worked very hard here for a few days.. I borrowed this photo from my friend Steve Herschbach He has the complete story written in his article The Chisana story. A very well written history of his mining adventures.. Swing over to his website and read what he has written ..
