This near your claims Dusty Wadsworth??

Is this a mining company? Can I ask you from the medium-sized screening device that works with me with water or passions as an experience in your brother country Sudan? If I work as a promoter of your company in my country, and I am trying to work hard for you, there is a huge amount of pure gold in my country, but it lacks the new crown. I would like to partner with you in the field of mining and there is a lot of profit and I ask your company to see the matter very and consider the matter of interest and I will do the necessary work in the equipment that will be sent to and promote your product and I am happy to serve you in this field Production rates in gold ranged between 5 km Grams per month But it available equipment crisis will Tved a large proportion of production in the gold fields and I own excellent sites Aadat but I lacked equipment and modern touch to work hard with you Greetings to you Antmana you prosperity Abdul Majid Ahmed pushed God Access numbers Mobile +241994241000 Whatsapp +241994241000 Email dx_maged@hotmail.com

I believe it came out of a clean up on a larger dredge.

Very nice 👍 That pan of chunky stuff is awesome looking gold.

I went down and panned on the GPAA.property and did good Delonaca.that's not how you spell it hahaha. I did that in January and we had 3 foot of snow in Vermont.

My brother lives in Fayetteville

Yeah how many yards did they have to run to get that?

These pictures are of a 6" dredge that is both Keene and homemade. Walt the man that built this is obviously a talented fabricator. I really like what he did with the all-aluminum frame with the proper gussets and engineering. I also like the honda engine that is upgraded from a 13 hp to 16/18 hp that can spin the custom oversized impeller pump up to 5K. This dredge will have some dangerous suction power. The wet suite heater and oversized fuel tank are all stuff that I would do for myself as well. I love when guys take their system to the max. He is even trying a few tricks as well such as a vibrator for the box. ... See MoreSee Less

Hey Guys! I just want a 4" Honda engine dredge with 30' suction with tip and the jet. Price please to (907)984-2634 Joseph Akeya

There is a of weight on the dredge. However Walt knows where he is going and he is going to be there for while. This in not a weekend worrier dredge.

Mark i needed some parts from you you didn't call me back. And a price on a 5"dredge 9 hp single motor if you have those i would go used or new.

I'll bet he's going to have fun hauling that thing down to the river and back to the truck/trailer!

Pretty AWESOME!!!

now you need a place to use it!!! GET RID OF THE LIBS!!!

Somehow over the years the California Water Board was thrown into this big mix for dredging because, the Department of Fish and Game or Department of Fish and Wildlife needed, another regulatory agency to block Miners from exercising their rights on public lands and on mining claims. If we are not proactive to push for our rights, the Water Board we'll make determinations for us and force rules and regulations that have been made to restrict and control and are unconstitutional. Now is the time to speak up and present some intelligent and constructive thoughts on how things should be handled. How can we deal with regulations that are put in place by Radical Extremists that just want to eliminate mining all-together. There are groups out there which have an agenda to shut down mining and all mineral resources. The State uses these tactics and use the, (uneducated, brainwashed, environmentalist that are completely unaware of the positive impacts). Dredgers remove 98% of lead and mercury as well well as other heavy metals. Another benefit is fish aquatic habitat having the ability to create colder pools in the rivers called, "thermal refugia”. Restoring gravel beds which allow fish to burrow their fish larvae to escape predation. Presently the Lawmakers have bundled any and all motorized into a illegal activity to include hi banking, power sluicing, battery powered and anything else they could toss in to take without having the right to take from our,"federally mandated mining rights”. Away!!! everyone need to stand for their rights or lose it forever. ... See MoreSee Less

Start posting all the underwater video that you have of fish & turtles coming up to the dredge area to feast of natural food sources made available because of dredging.

Don't forget to mention the worst Salmon runs we have had have been while the moratorium has been in place and there fore the dredging wasn't the problem. We should all want our rivers to be healthy. More sediment moves in winter than a dredge could produce in a lifetime.

I will show up with the 22 lbs of mercury I've removed this spring all ready. By shovel and sluice. How can they argue against the facts ???

So IF they don't have "The Right" to do what they are doing how are they getting away with it??

It's pretty simple you need to start a coalition! you need to have a plan a name Etc. that attracts fishermen, Rafters, campers, swimmers, everybody! You call it the California Water use Coalition. and you get every single person to sign a petition or put their name down as they stand with you, in protecting the use of water in California for the citizens. You don't specifically say dredging, you don't specifically say anything, you just get all those people behind you and then you go to the board and you say these are the things we want. We want to be able to dredge reasonably and responsibly set some limits on the size, the way that you put the gas in the dredge showing you're not going to spill gas into the water appease all the EPA nuts, explain how you were going to remove lead and Mercury at all that. explain how you're going to educate and help fishermen learn how not to leave fishing line and hooks everywhere. and how you're going to start to educate swimmers and families into not bringing glass or any trash into the water or river Channel, and rafters are going to clean up and not leave trash everywhere etc. As a coalition as a large group you can get control of the situation but when you have a whole bunch of little groups fighting each other you can't win that's how they got where we are now fishermen against dredging Rafters against dredging fishermen against Rafters, etc etc etc

The pictures are of a good customer and friend of ours Phillip. He always does things to the extreme, he reminds me of Me. Philip purchased a OTS spectrum Mask and Decked it out with a ambient breathing valve that allows you to breath through the mask above the surface of the water. He also added on 2 of the spectrum flash light mounts and a two flashlights. He as also added on to his dredge a hot water heater system that keeps him warm while diving. All these cool accessories are not a cheap date however when you get out there dredging he will be comfortable and productive. A good mask allows you to spend more time under water and focus on the job of dredging. You will have a lot more comfort in the jaw area not having to bite down on the regulator mouth piece. With the capability of lighting up underwater this will increase comfort and capability to see the gold trapped in cracks and crevices. Also a hot water heater will greatly extend the time you spend in the water. With a hot water heater I find that I will get in the water around 7:00 Am to 8:00 am in the morning with out a heater I is typically closer to 9:00 to 10:00 waiting for the sun to hit the water and slightly warm it up. Also your energy levels are higher since your body is not fighting off the cold water. With a good heater I will spend several more hour dredging per day especially if we are in good gold. ...

Didn’t like how expensive the light mounts were so I built my own out of stainless

The say that it is polluting But when a dredge is started and idling and water is pumping through the sluice box a Closed Circuit is formed. The same water is moved through the circuit via the pump and there is No pollutant discharge. Similarly when the material is fed there is no pollutant added to the streambed. We recover 98% of all metals including lead and mercury that process through the recovery system. If I had a subsurface system the water and material being processed wouldn't even leave the waterway at all...how would I be adding anything to the waterway at all as the water and material never breaks the plane of the waters surface?

You definitely need a good mask.

Thanks to mark keene for all of my golden adventure

Youd want to be getting 20 oz a week to be into it that hard

That’s awesome

I bought an A52S last spring and I first used it on my claim in Idaho which has a small creek with a medium low flow so the classifier screen could not be used. I then used it here in Minnesota on a short creek contained in private property and had more flow but still not enough. I then used it in another creek with a much higher flow and was able to use the screen! I then attached a homemade highbanker hopper with a one inch gas pump and full throttle is just enough water to get the materials moving down, obviously no screen. I have changed out the green carpet for deep groove black carpet. I'm mostly happy with it but I feel I have been losing gold. I would really like to get all the new stuff for my Sluice but just don't have the funds. I am a tester for Gold Owl mat which I have recently put in my A52S. I'm also going to be running for my local chapter of GPAA president seat. I've organized a few outings and set up a group chat for us all to communicate about going out diggin, where at, what time n day and show our findings. Gold is a huge part of my life now that my kid's are adults I can chase my dream for about 31 years so I left my 25+ year career for a flexible schedule making minimum wage. Thank You Keene engineering! Make me a field tester for everything A52S 🤞

A good customer "Bill" took his KACGHM to the next level, he coated with a Bed liner type material. He coated his belt guard, base plate, compressor, and handle. This type of coating is as tough as nails, he should never see scratches, corrosion etc. It is always nice to see customer that really takes pride in his equipment. ... See MoreSee Less
