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

I have seen some good looking rich ore in my life, however, this flat out amazing. This comes from overseas. I would guess a lot of this could also be considered specimen gold as well ... See MoreSee Less

Oh for a dump truck load of that, a Keene rock crusher, a keene highbanker, and Mark and Pat to have fun with me ceaning it up.

Looks like the mine In Australia that just made 20 million $$ in a few weeks.

$69,000.00 is the price. The truck is amazing could use a new paint job

$65,000.00

I’m more curious on how much that dredge cost and where it was aloud

I was wondering why I didn't see the nesse dredge on your website anymore . To bad you quit making it . I really wanted one . With an on board gold recovery plant

What motor is in the truck?

Wish I had the gold to buy that truck !!! ...working on it !!!!

That is a very nice looking truck

That's one awesome ride if I had the money I'd buy it

That truck is amazing

Or Perhaps they build us a giant dredge and we build a new team

4X4 Limousine ??

Trade hummer h2

I'll buy it in Aus

Maybe one day you guys will begin building the dredge again in the future.

nice

One of our friends Sid Slackman is currently working over in Africa. He sets up trains and runs dredging operations for various customers. These are a few pictures he sent. I guess this is the easiest way to drop a dredge into that particular location. I would not like to be under or around if something went wrong. ... See MoreSee Less

I am used to allembling the dredge down at the river. This is a lot togher with the 1200 lbs 100 hp diesel engine.

What size are these dredges?

How can you even see under that water!

the dredge you see is a Keene 8160D Diamond dredge. The dredge can be assembled at the rivers edge and doesn't need a crane.

Sure looks easier than dragging up a rocky creek with a capstan winch.

Looks like New Zealand bush,

I LOVE the Keene 2” backpack dredge. But my custom Keene component built DredgeZilla has my heart. Haven’t figured out how to run both at the same time. Maybe my cousin can run the 2 while I run DredgeZilla. Steven W. Self Jr.

Amazing how many bullets are in there with bird shot

Gary Collyer 🤔🤔🤔

Keith Godfrey 👌 😂

Cote d'Ivoire, the Ivory Coast...

And don’t forget about the snapping toothy logs in the water over there. Talk about risk it for the biscuit.

In those waters might be better dredging blind so you can't see what else is down there

Dredging by brail in those waters ?? It doesn’t look like you could see under water...? Hard Work !!

No guts, No glory: NO FEAR

These are a few undoctored pictures of our latest Keene Fire fighting system. Shown is the newest aluminum intake and cam lock on the intake hose. This eliminates the needs for any tools and makes for a very fast and easy assembly. We have also added a petcock drain on the bottom of the pump this makes it easy to drain the water out of the pump. Pool water contains chlorine and other chemicals that will eventually eat away at the pump. Just rinse with fresh water then drain. These new upgrade also forces us to raise the price up a $100.00 ... See MoreSee Less

We could do it however it would require making new patterns for pumps. This would cost us over 25K and then we have a lot more labor and machining time. We are considering it since we do our pumps are made on CNC Haas mills and lathes. Maybe next year, unfortunately not a cheap date.

Any pump can be updated with a petcock on the bottom it just takes a little time and money. You do have to be a little more careful with the pump if you set it down on the wrong rock it could fail. The material is not that thick on the bottom.

hello sir how can i order .

California is in need of this

Best pump in the industry. I sold many of them after the ‘07 wildfires in San Diego.

Again sure wish you guys added these options to your dredges, having a drain on the pump would be huge as one of the creeks I dredge is high in acid and eats the pumps up. Also would be great in the winter time so that it would be easier to drain pumps

Mick Thew Perfect for you, with bush out the back.
