DON’T GET CAUGHT UNPREPARED!



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…

The San Fernando Valley Prospectors
monthly outing, Dec. 7-10th. We get together with alll of our prospecting friends for some real adventure. It's all about enjoying the outdoors with great friends, good food and hopefully some good gold. I was lucky to find three little nugget my first couple of hours of detecting. The weather was absolutely perfect. Gene found some interesting rocks with his ultraviolet lamp Saturday night time. Went on some fun rides on the off road toys. If you have never gone to any of the outings, you are missing out on life.

These are a few more pictures of our new 5" / 6" mini ultra. This picture shows a better picture of a sluice box with the "Slow flow" sluice box. I hope to be testing this next week. Our next test is to place it in a pool and check out the floatation. The dredge is long; however, it is still smaller and more compact floatation.

We have not had a problem with the 3" or the 4" so hopefully, we will not with the 5/6" I do like a few large open riffle for larger gold nuggets and gold and quartz pieces.

Nothing is as easy at it seems we had to add an air compressor to this gravel pump system. So we had to make custom shafts and pulley adaptors. Makes me appreciate having good quality talented people working for us. It is almost impossible to find old school machinist that can do just about anything. Plus the help of a water jet machine. ...

We are always working on new dredges and sluice box designs. Currently, we are working on a new 2.5" ultra with the slow flow fine gold recovery system. Going out for testing next week. We are working a 5/6 Ultra dredge with dual 4 hp or 6 hp engines. This is lighter more compact dredge built for the hard to get locations or hardcore weekend warriors. We are also working on your standard 5" / 6" dredge improved frame assembly.

We are also back working on our RC812 large Rock Crusher. The crusher held up several months of tough work however we had a failer in the pivot bar assembly so we are now beefing up the crusher further. You can see the diesel engine and custom-made gearbox.
We never stop working on projects and we are always striving to manufacture a better piece of equipment.

We would love to see a two stage medium-sized sluice box similar to the old Cal Sluice using drop riffle effect with a classifier screen. and lower catch basin, but with Keene's own unique design.

🔥🔥Badass!!🔥🔥

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, we had a break in, a smash and grab in our showroom. They did get away with several metal detectors and a few other items as well.
This is our new reinforced front door with a custom mural with aluminum backing to reduce the chance of a smash and grab. We used a heavy gauge aluminum water jetted part. I turned out really nice, better than we thought. If anyone is interested in one let us know and we can quote one. Good luck ever getting through this door !!!

Oh no I’m so sorry to hear this 😔 I hope they are in camera and caught!!!

I hope you had the serial numbers! And HD cameras to post for the world to see.

Hope you catch who ever did it.

Use laminated glass in the door, more $ but nobody will get through it. (Easily)

Love the door!

Break glass...hook on door jamb and pull whole door out.....better expense...German Shepherd. ...

Any model/product numbers we can watch out for on Craigslist? I hope the culprits are caught.

It takes all kinds, hope they get caught

I hope that they pay the ultimate price! Can't stand a thief! God willing I will find the ones that took my gold dredge.

Maybe add another one to the top window as well ?

Hope they get caught and put away for life!! 😡

Sorry you got broke into. That door is cool.

Put this kind of poles in front of your doorway in order to prevent it's becoming a drive in.They will try.

Sorry to hear about your troubles but you did get a beatytifull door . It looks great

The door looks very cool !! wish the detectors had gps tracking on/in them. It would be awesome to knock on another door and say, "GIVE ME MY SHTuff BACK !!! "

I'm packed with drums and repetition... ifn y'all need security

Sorry to hear about the break in. They'll get theirs. Door does look good though

Especially KEENE ENGINEERING thieves

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. Thirty seconds and that door is laying in the street. Pat Keene feel free to PM me for info.

Thieves are awful, our local mining shop ( The Miners Cache - Redding Ca) Was broken into twice and they grabbed nearly all detectors and other equipment both times. I hope that you guys got good footage of them and that eventually they are caught and have to face the music (I hope it's really bad music too.)

That sucks, like the new door

So sorry to hear about the smash and grab guys! Great looking fix to the problem!

Great,hope you got pictures of the bad guys..The door design is eyecatching...

While it sucks that they broke in and stole the equipment, I'm loving the new door.

Hate to hear about the break in. Awesome door though.
