  1. Miller Table

  3. Selling a mining claim

    I met a guy online about a year ago. After talking I agreed to let him pan on one of my claims. All went well. Recently he contacted me and wants to buy the claim on payments.

    I mostly do gold dredging but have been coming into good deals on detectors so I am shifting toward that. I have a variety of detectors and need to trim the herd to a couple good ones.

  5. Treasure or Trouble

    I found this story. Its old but and has been discussed years ago but I thought it may stir some lively opinion. Question: Assuming this treasure actually exists, what is the legal ownership situation? Please hold the obvious "haul it out with a flashlight" comments...
  6. Claim Jumper!!

    I did some maintenance on my claim last weekend and met a guy looking for a secluded place to camp. I directed him to the camp site on my claim, asked him to not leave a mess and have a great time. That evening I had a heated voice mail from the claim owner north of mine. The neighboring claim...

    MY compressor drive belt is slipping a bit and the compressor is at the end of its adjustment so I thougt I would shoot a few pics of how to take a dredge pump apart.

  11. Gold Rush: White Water

  13. Jaw crusher ID

    I picked up a bunch of mining equipment recently. Part of it was this jaw crusher. No markings on it that I can find. It is a good size BICO style jaw, about 8"x14" but the odd part is that it has a integrated roll crusher below the jaw. Any ideas of the manufacturer?
