    Check I use this placer mining to get under HUGE Boulders!

    Some prospectors have asked about what blaster I use. In certain situations, this can have excellent results.
    This is a video I compiled at a county workshop.
    Have you guys used one? Do you like it?
    Cheers

    do the new systems still require a generator? or are they the battery trigger now?

    It seems like you wouldnt want to blow up all the gold under the boulder?

    I'm trying to figure where and how you use the two 2x4's? I need to move some boulders next season and was thinking maybe a hydraulic jack in the mix? So far I'll be packing in 18lb pry bar and come-along. While I'm here I should ask you guys about drilling granite for a bolt or eyelet to hook come-along onto....any thoughts? TIA.....

    Youll need to capture progress when lifting, i use a variety of sizes 2x4, 4x4, 6x6, i call this stull wood. in mining or lifting heavy stuff one needs to like i said capture progress.
    Also one needs a solid base for the jack keeps it from sinkin into the sand.
    Grab a stull !!

    No cribbing is for holding in back fill, capture progress is for lifting.
    This might depend on what part of the country your from ?

    No, its a term used everywhere I know of for holding/supporting a load. Fire and rescue trucks carry stacks of 4x4s to crib items as they perform lifts so that if the lifting fails or needs to be reset, the cribbing holds the load. Cribbing is just holding a load.

    That would be cool to have, I did see somewhere a while ago that the battery was being worked on. I think the original Micro-blaster fire by just pulling a string and the II you can fire off a small tank of compressed air like a paintball gun tank. What's the difference between the micro and the sierra blaster as far as what makes it go boom?

    This is a great tool for us. We use it in combination with small heavy equipment and a gas powered winch.
    Later in the video you can see where I hook up a winch to a piece of the boulder to pull it out of the way.

    To ignite the charges a generator or blast box is needed.
    Since I use a corded hammer drill, I use the same generator to ignite the charges.

    If you have a battery or gas powered hammer drill then by all means use the Blast Box. It is a small handheld device run off batteries and produces the necessary current for ignition through capacitors.
