Gold Nugget Ring


About the Gold:

Gold fineness - .087 or 87% Pure
Coarse Gold Creek - Great Jewelry
Average size over a season - 0.5 grams
Largest nugget from our operation - 4.2 Ounces
Appears to be three sources of Gold to the creek (three types of nuggets)



About the ground:

My last years of mining (2005/2006), gold was worth around $500.00-$600.00 US/Ounce. At that time, throughout the whole season I would average $10-15/yard. There is one bench of which I had tested, and it payed between $15.00 - $20.00/yard. This bench is what I intend to mine next. It would take most of a full season to mine. At todays prices, this would pay at around $30.00 - $35.00/yard. I believe that this bench would be the best place to start.

The worst ground that I had ever run into over the four years that have mined on Arch Creek was around $5.00/yard. At todays prices it would still be very worth while to mine.

With a proper crew, hard work and good earth moving techniques, this ground can be paid off in one season. With the current scale of operation, there is a life time of mining on this creek as it is at least 80% virgin ground.

About the sluice plant:

It can process up to 70 cubic yards/hour. However I usually run it between 30-50 yards/hour depending on the type of material being processed. What should be done right away is some more sluice runs added to the bottom as well as a nugget trap in the hopper. After that is done, the screens could be smaller and the plant would consistently produce 50-70 yards/hour. This would probably take one week worthGold Mine Sluice Set of work in the spring.








About the equipment:

All of the equipment runs. There is some maintenance that has to be done prior to working it next season. I believe that there are about two weeks worth of work to be done (Early spring would be best). This is what needs to be done on each of the following:

Loader moving pump988 Loader - Not Much - all oil changes and filters

Hitachi Excavator - Oil changes and filters, batteries, stick cylinder change (I have one ready to go), both master pins on the undercarriage, fix a couple of hydraulic leaks, and two windows.

Case Excavator - Oil Change, injectors, quite a few hydraulic leaks, grease nipple changes, rails for the undercarriage (big job and expensive), and an idler seal. The undercarriage can still be put off for another season or two if you want, as its only job is to feed the sluice plant and rarely moves around.

Fuel Truck - oil change, repair the front bumper and one seal must be replace on one of the compartment valves.

1994 1 ton pick-up - front end should be done soon

3 Ton Flat Deck Winch Truck - Transmission needs replacing


About the camp:

Camp is designed for 8-10 (more if you wanted). It is very basic and humble. There is a total of 6 buildings. 4 are for sleeping, one for a wash house and the last is the kitchen. All buildings are heated by wood. The wash shack relies on gravity fed water and is heated by propane allowing for hot showers. The kitchen house has a propane stove and a propane fridge. I use a small 2000 watt generator to give light at night in the fall time. Camp would require only a day or two to get up and running to the standard it was. Keep in mind that many more days could be spent on it as there is always room for improvement.
