Time For Some Good News!

Take a minute to read this very exciting article by Shannon Poe at the American Mining Rights Association!

Firstly, we know you are as skeptical as we are, after all, we’ve been told things over the past 9 years (like rulings from courts and such) which give us hope, but it always ended up being the same BS, delays, denials and shutdowns The small mining community donated millions to go to court, Brandon Rinehart was dragged through many court battles and that too we all donated to. All to no avail... Continue Reading

WHAT’S HAPPENING…

This is a picture of the newest Keene Blower for the 210 dry washer, provides plenty of air for 210. This is a little on the heavy side however for the job it does it is amazing. Provides enough air for at least 4 to 5, 151 Drywashers. This blower took us almost a year of testing to get just the right balance of both CFM cubic feet per minute and Static pressure PSI pounds per square inch. The engine a Briggs and Stratton equipped with a pressurized oil system with a oil filter. This makes a big difference in the longivity of the engine. ... See MoreSee Less

Holy Jésus those look radical! Dont let "Italian Bar Gar" start running this set up!

We are building or first production run of the new 210 Dry Washers !!! These are a few pictures of production on the 210. We are also making a few changes that we know will make a difference in the dust output static charge and ease of cleaning up the recovery sluice. Even the vibrators will be easier to service compared to my test model. ... See MoreSee Less

Nah, put a sluce on it...6" or 8" gold dredge...although 37 hp would create enough vacuum to tear your arm off.

I need to buy a old junk air pump

Bryan Gray new toy lol

The new 4” ultra dredge is now equipped with our latest sluice box improvements the Slow Flow sluice box. We have added 1/4” woven wire classifier screen to the back end of the box. This drops the water speed in half under the screen. Under the screen is section medium expanded metal covering a section of miracle mating providing unsurpassed fine gold recovery in a compact light sluice box. ... See MoreSee Less

Will you make an upgrade kit for the previous model?

Does this make the 3 stage sluice box obsolete?

Will you make an upgrader kit for thé previous modèle?

4 Stroke engine no more mixing gas with oil also the reliability is the best. We also have a screw on lid. We aslo have dual ports so the motor works on top of the bucket when powering the dry washer and when being used as a shop Vac.

The price for the Wet is kit $299.00. The price will go up higher soon, just the pump went from $39.95 to $99.00 The sliuce is twice and long and way more work. The hopper and classifers are at leat twice the cost of the previous hopper system.

The combined price for everything is 1539.00 for everything

The HVS blower / shop vac is $445.00. Our set up is the best in the business. We chose the Makita for several reasons.

The price for the 160 dry washer is $795.00

Rich does pay attention. This time he attached the flood hopper and sluice trough extension in place of the flare. He also stepped up to a larger pressure hose. Just the larger pressure hose should provide about 25% more water flow into the sluice box. Rich also made a nice little PVC Stand. Not great in the field but ideal for home usage. ...

Good observation he had to run it at the stepper pitch since he was not getting enough water due to the small hose once he runs it with the larger hose he should be able to flatten out the box.
