Includes:

Primary Wash Plant
• 5yd Dry Feed Hopper & Grizzly: solid machine, has magnetic vibrator, grizzly screen deck, wings
• 2 Conveyor Belts: one is fully functional and was being used (new belt on order). The other needs a motor and a little tinkering.
• 36" x 10' Trommel: 1/4"minus screening.
• Nugget Trap Sluice.
• Pan American Style 42" Mineral Jig: great condition, includes 1000 lbs of nickel shot (won't rust or magnetize!) worth $10,000 in scrap alone. Shot ranges in size from 1/4" to 5/8". Variable speed electronic controller, pitot tube flow meters.

Finishing Equipment
• 32 ft x 12" Dual Channel Finishing Sluice: wooden with epoxy coating, includes miner's moss, steel grating, and adjustable legs.

• Silver Springs 4'x8' Shaker Table with Auger Feed: rehab'd, in great shape, new table top. ($8200 new from them right now.)
• Shop Built Diagonal Shaker Table: solid machine from a large commercial mine (they had dozens apparently), but we couldn't get it working to process our material in the quantities we were producing it.
• "Gold Cube", 4-stack: THE latest gold finishing device, reduces 10-20 pails of material to a pan-full inside an hour and gets 95% of the gold on the first pass. Really. These came out in 2011.

• Several High-Banker Sluices and Components
• Various pans, tubs, scoops, and 5 gal buckets

Pumps, Generators, Electrical, and Fuel

• Electric Breaker Box and Control Panel: Includes all the switch gear to turn on and off the plant. Also contains the Variable Frequency Drive for the jig, grounding rod, etc. etc.

• 2" Gas Powered Trash Pump: standard unit, handy to have around.

• 500 gallon heavy duty twin axle water trailer: construction type trailer used originally for spraying. Non-potable, but could have new plastic tank mounted on it. (no title, doesn't need plates as piece of "wheeled machinery")

Backhoe & Vehicles
• 1985 John Deere 310B: solid machine, currently being serviced, including extend-a-hoe cylinder and wheel bearings. This is a smaller backhoe and was a secondary unit to a larger rental.
