gold wash plants for sale | portable gold mining equipment

Welcome to GWP, where we make high-quality, affordable gold wash plants for sale. Our product lineup is designed to efficiently handle anywhere from 30 to 300 tons of material per hour. Each wash plant has three proportionately sized sluice boxes designed to optimize gold recovery in all conditions.

Each machine is a complete portable plant; there is no need for additional screens or sluice boxes! At the top is an extreme duty grizzly bar section that will take up to 24-inch rocks (91 cm). Classification begins when the material is placed on the grizzly bars, and high-pressure water separates the sub-1 (25.4 mm) material from the large rocks. Next, the screen deck further classifies the material, and sub-.25 (6.35 mm) material drops into the sluice boxes, remaining sub-1 material passes through the nugget trap into the final riffle set for capture, and larger rocks get discarded.The sluicing system has three boxes that are independently adjustable, and with anywhere from 20 feet of sluice box on our 50-ton units to 40 feet of wider boxes on the 200-ton units, gold recovery is excellent. It often exceeds 95%, even with fine gold down to 200 mesh! Whats the key to such remarkable recovery? Science. This portable gold mining equipment was based on the performance data found in a landmark technical report on sluice boxes and riffle systems. Watch the video of our M50 wash plant.

Our wash plants for sale are always mercury-free, and they require no additional recovery equipment. Setting up your wash plant is fast and easy--it usually takes less than 2 hours. When you need to move the mining site, you can drag the excavator and enjoy the ease of a highly portable wash plant.

Our machines range from 30 to 300 tons per hour while maintaining a long life and less downtime. Reliability is essential to save time and increase profits. We ship worldwide so that you can pay less money and recover more gold than other machines.

master the art of suction dredging for gold

master the art of suction dredging for gold

Placer gold deposits that have accumulated in the gravels of a riverbed are generally the richest areas to look for gold, particularly in gold-bearing areas that have seen limited mining activity. Even in places that have been mined for centuries, there can still be good concentrations of gold in river gravels which are often rejuvenated with new gold with the high water each spring.

Efficiently mining for placer gold can be challenging. One of the best ways to process large amounts of gold bearing material is by using a suction dredge. For the average miner who does not have the ability to use heavy equipment, the dredge can be the best way to find a lot of gold.

There is a learning curve to successful gold dredging, but once learned it can be a very successful method, perhaps one of the few methods that will actually produce a good living wage for a miner today.

Dredges are like an underwater vacuum cleaner. They essentially suck up the material from the bottom of a river or stream, pulling it through a suction hose to the surface, where the sand and gravel is run through a floating sluice box. The sluice is mounted between two pontoons, so the dredge can essentially be used anywhere in the river.

Water flows through the sluice are regulated by the water that is pumped through the suction hose and into the box. When set up properly, a suction dredge will capture a good amount of the fine gold while still allowing for good amounts of material to be processed.

The benefit of a good dredging operation is that there is a continuous supply of gold-bearing material to being supplied to the sluice. Unlike a basic sluice box that you would feed with a shovel, when you are down on the river sucking up gravel, you are able to move considerably more material with less work.

Suction dredges are sized based on the diameter of their suction hose. They can be anywhere from 1.5 up to 10 or larger on custom commercial applications. Most popular dredges are around 4 to 6, which are a good size for a 1 or 2-man dredging operation.

Although the larger dredges can recover considerably more gold, larger sizes get to be more difficult to manage while underwater. They are harder to move and can really wear a miner out after a long day. A more modest size dredge is usually preferred because it can be run more efficiently and the miner will have energy to dredge all day without wearing out.

Of course, locating an area that has paying quantities of gold is always important. Dredges run using gasoline engines, so there are costs associated with running them. To make it worth your time and energy, make sure that you are searching in areas that have a high likelihood of having gold.

In addition, you always want to do test samples with your gold dredge to attempt to locate the paystreaks of gold that will give you the highest gold yields. Its really no different than you would do if you were sampling using a basic gold pan, except it is on a larger scale. Dont waste your time in unproductive areas. If you want to recover a lot of gold, then make sure you are dredging in areas where the gold is heavily concentrated.

In shallow water you may not need any specialized diving equipment to use a suction dredge. You may be able to reach underwater with the nozzle to work in water that is only a few feet deep. However most of the time you will want to be able to dive down underwater and stay underwater for a long time at depth. In this case, you will need some diving equipment.

Staying warm is important, so a wetsuit or dry suit needed in most situations. In some warm climates you might not need them, but most of the times you will need the extra layer to keep yourself warm when staying underwater for a sustained length of time.

A good mask is important so you can see what you are doing underwater. You need a mask that fits you properly, and one that doesnt fog up. Sometimes it takes some trial and error before you can find a mask that you really like, but since you are wearing it for the entire day you will want to make sure you get one that you like.

Of course you need air when you are underwater, so there are two ways that you can get it. In relatively shallow waters, you can use a snorkel with a tube up to the surface to supply you with air. This will work fine up to several feet deep, and during summer months when water levels are low this is often all that is needed for air supply.

In deeper water, most dredgers use what is called a hookah air system. These use the power of the dredges engine to generate air for breathing, and can even be set up to pump warm air generated by the engine into your suit to help keep your body warm. This is especially important when dredging during cooler climates.

Suction dredges are probably the best way for the average miner to potential find large, paying quantities of placer gold. Even in rivers and streams that have previously been mined, a skilled gold dredger can recover good amounts of gold.

Unfortunately, in many states throughout the country, regulations are making it harder and harder to dredge for gold. Although a variety of environmental excuses are made, the truth is that dredging during the proper times of the year has no effect on fish or other wildlife, and is often perceived by the public that dredgers are destroying the environment somehow. This is despite the fact that all the gravel that they pull off the bottom of the river is dropped right onto the river bottom after it goes through the sluice box.

At the same time that dredging is on the decline in the United States, many countries are ramping up their gold mining efforts and it is being found that suction dredges are a critical tool for recovering gold from waterways.

A while back, I saw a man wearing a t-shirt of one of the larger mining equipment manufacturers. I started talking to him and found out that he had recently purchased 2 large suction dredges and was planning to travel to his home country of Mali, Africa to mine for gold. The river that he was going to dredge had been worked by artisanal miners for centuries, but the dredge was going to allow him to access parts of the river that have never been mined before.

Specialized equipment like this is making it possible to find new, undiscovered gold deposits all around the world. Even though dredging is getting harder and harder in the US, it is still the best placer mining method for large gold recovery.

how to start a small scale gold mining company

how to start a small scale gold mining company

Small scale mining is easy when one knows how. This introduction may help the reader to start in small scale mining activity. The general information shall give a guidance on how to properly look into the future of own sustainable gold mining.

Just like in many other areas of business, knowledge is power. First thing to do in order to start a new gold mining activity is to obtain as much knowledge as possible for your future mining development. You certainly don't need to be an educated miner, but you do need to have access to knowledge and to experts that may help you during your beginning stage. Try to read as many prospecting books and instructions. Get acquainted with the prospecting tools such as metal detectors and gold sluices. Establish few local gold washing plants and process sand, soil or any kind of material, regardless if you are finding gold at the location or not. In fact, such actions, at first sight appearing useless, but they are going to help you in the real time situations. You do need to recognize the traces of black sand and heaviest minerals. You need to practically observe the minerals. Review the periodic table of elements again and especially find out the density or specific weight of gold, platinum, silver and other precious metals. Compare that to the specific weight of black sand and water, and go into deep understanding of the gold as precious metal. You should read at least few books on gold prospecting and some basic books on physics that explain characteristics of gold.

I am helping people worldwide to start a small scale mining company. While our focus is on Tanzania, we help people to start in Ghana, Papua New Guinea, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and other popular countries for small scale mining. You can send me email at any time for any matter. Karibu!

You should consider making a proper legal structure in order to minimize your taxes and increase your income. If setting up companies in other countries, you have to consider proper holding companies. You are interested to minimize local taxes, income tax, corporate taxes and any dividend distribution taxes. Share with the government what must be shared, but keep most of your income for yourself. Consider consulting yourself with attorneys or corporate specialist such as RCD Wealth or other similar international consultants. Your legal setup is going to determine the future of your mining company, take it very seriously as your life and life of you partners and family depends on the proper structure.

Out of all important factors, one has to know that gold market is well developed and that one can sell gold pretty easy. Gold is sold easily, usually for cash in many locations of the world. Regardless where you are located, there are many gold dealers who are purchasing gold for highest prices on the market. You may work with local gold dealer, however, you should search for a gold dealer with quickest and most accurate turnaround times. Cash paid within 24 hours or at spot is the best that you may get. Distance to the dealer does make difference when mining in remote areas. You need to be able to quickly sell the produced gold without thinking. Raw gold contains silver and other precious metals. A good gold dealer is going to pay you for all precious metals that you deliver to them. Try to obtain the information where all the gold dealers are selling their gold. This may be a larger gold refinery. Contact the gold refinery and see how you can sell your gold and silver produced in your own gold mine directly to the refinery.

As your next step in starting a new gold mining activity, you would search for the appropriate mining land. You may purchase such land, or acquire it as mining claim or in some countries pay for the mining license. You may also enter the joint venture with the mining land owner or license owner. There are numerous opportunities to consider and you need to find out what is best for you. My advice is to start in any manner you can while having long term strategy to expand to new mining lands and to acquire one such license yourself. Make sure you have the proper mining license so that you can actually start quick in production of gold. Some of companies located in United States and Europe, have been waiting for years to acquire the mining license. Don't let this happen to you. If you are after mining, simply choose another country and go there. African countries such as Tanzania, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Congo, Mali have all those opportunities waiting for you with season 12 months long.

Engage in practical prospecting on the mining land that you have found. Observe environmental laws at all times. Practical prospecting need not be expensive. Watching small scale miners in Africa will give you tremendous practical approach. It may be so simple that it may look unbelievable. A western geologist with best education may need days, weeks, even months to prepare the proper report of the minerals on such mining land. That is certainly necessary for any large operation. However, African geologist with much less education, by using practical approach, may tell you exactly where is the gold, and within 10 minutes may demonstrate you that gold is there. Learning the most practical approach is of tremendous value. On numerous lands in Africa, one may start within a day to process material. Prospecting for gold is a big subject and its values and technology and effort required cannot be underestimated. Still you need to think for yourself how to get quicker into the business and real gold production by using any means that come available for least expenses possible.

Your next step would be to prepare your mining land for the work and in many cases for living. You do need a living space on the mining land, be it a tent, a living container or cabin or a brick house. You and your team, your employees do need a space for living at the place without traveling to distant cities. You are going to need kitchen, and space for material processing, tools, and all the equipment. You would clean the area from any trees or other obstacles. If there are any dangerous animals such as snakes or snake holes, you would need to take care of it. Any existing pits or shafts have to be carefully marked so that people don't fall into it. Think of security for people in the first place. You need to establish yourself on the mining land and to feel as safe as at home.

By using nearby villages you will find many people willing to work in the small scale mining company. In African countries it is very easy to employ local workers. By providing them some necessary accommodation, food and medicine, they will know you take care of your team and will be loyal to you. Do not underpay your workers. Offer them the average salary but fair to their work. We recommend that each person shall be paid based on their performance, rather than on the time worked. If the performance is double in the same time in comparison to other worker, the person shall receive the double pay. You will not be able to recognize in the first stage who is who and what character your workers have. During the time, this is going to be filtered, and some people will go, some will be fired and most of good people will stay working with you.

The acronym EQV stands for Equipment, Quality, Volume. It relates to three most important factors in the selective mining and small scale mining activities. The mining Equipment has its certain potential capacity. It shall be correctly evaluated including the number of people required to handle such equipment. If more people would raise the potential capacity of volume that may be processed, than the maximum number of people with equipment shall be calculated. If your mining equipment has capacity to handle 30 tonnes of material every day with 5 workers, that is what you wish to achieve daily and routinely. You are targeting the maximum available equipment capacity. The Quality factor relates to the higher grade of ores and better concentrate. Quality is relative to your results. One has to constantly keep an eye on better ores with higher grades, including to improve the Equipment factor and Volume factor to increase the Quality. The Volume factor relates to the amount of ores that is processed. There are many ways how one can increase the Volume processed, such as properly using Equipment, increasing the number of people, supporting the workers during the mining, awarding people for better performances, keeping discipline and working in few shifts.

Small scale mining groups and associations usually do not invest much or pay more money than they produce. This is very important in life and in business. One has to start with least expenses and produce more income over expenses.

Once you have established proper ratio of Equipment that relates to Quality of ores and daily and routinely Volume handling, you will be able to calculate how to maintain sustainable mining activity. One has to observe the expenses in relation to handling and maintaining the Equipment, Quality and Volume. There are also other expenses such as administration, royalties, taxes, research and much more. All expenses have to be lessened down with income and gold production increase. The gold mining production can be easily sustained or maintained if one has proper knowledge for it. It can also easily fail. The difference between the failure and success is in the learning, training and application of the knowledge.

mining 101: ultimate list of gold mining equipment - precious metal info

mining 101: ultimate list of gold mining equipment - precious metal info

Found in Bulgaria are some of the oldest gold artifacts known to mankind, in the Varna Necropolis, a collection of graves built between 4700 and 4200 BC. This finding, dating back nearly 7000 years, provides evidence of the first civilization to use gold mining equipment. Some archeologists claim the Sakdrisi site in southern Georgia, which dates to roughly 4000 BC, is the worlds first gold mine.

In the 19th century, gold rushes occurred around the globe and people migrated to different regions hoping to strike it rich. The Victorian Gold Rush took place in Victoria, Australia, between 1851 and the late 1860s, and the Second Boer War took place in South Africa between 1899 and 1902. In America, the famous California Gold Rush took place in 1949, and discovery of Nevada's Carlin Trend,North America's largest gold depository,took placein 1961.

Since the beginning of civilization, humans have mined around 6 billions troy ounces of gold. Today, 2.5 percent of all gold production happens in Nevada, making it one of the primary regions on earth. As of 2017, China produced the most gold per year at 429 metric tons, followed by Australia, and then Russia. However, there's still a lot of gold out there, and you can join in the gold mining industry by investing in basic gold mining equipment.

There are two basic steps to gold mining: prospecting and production. "Prospecting" refers to the actual search in a certain area for valuable minerals, and "production," also known as mining, is the physical act of removing the gold from where you found it. Since different equipment exists for prospecting and mining, this article explores, briefly, equipment used for prospecting, and then focuses, primarily, on gold mining equipment.

How do you find gold? In the gold mining industry, theres a lot of value in learning from others who have gone before you. No one ever gets all the gold out of any one location. So, try going to where gold exists in abundance. Consider this: the California Gold Rush only removed a small percentage of the gold thats out there. That's right.

There are areas in California that are still open to recreational prospecting, including the Auburn State Recreation Area and the South Yuba Recreation lands. Once you get your feet wet in an area proven to have gold, you can move on to other areas closer to home. After mastering prospecting and gold-mining techniques, you might even want to look for gold in your own back yard.

Some people say, Gold is where you find it. What this means is you have to learn what to look for. First, understand that the way water moves in rivers and streams determines where gold deposits might settle. Next, you need to learn why gold concentrates in certain areas, and then search those areas.

Once youve selected a specific waterway for mining, youll want to pick specific points to search. Since it is impractical to search the entire stream or river, there are ways to read a waterway to determine the most likely places to find gold. The following describes how to find those places.

The first thing to know is gold is heavy. Its about 19 times heavier than the same amount of water and 6 times heavier than solid material found in streams and rivers. So, anything that slows the movement of water is likely to trap gold deposits. Things that slow down moving water are:

Water on the downriver side of obstacles will move slower, and this is where heavier gold will settle. When looking at a chosen waterway, begin by searching for natural dams where gold may have collected. Another place that collects heavier objects in a waterway is inside bends, places where water naturally slows down. Heavy objects will often form a bar at these points, and the upside of a bar inside bends is a great place to look for gold.

Once gold has settled in a stream, over time, it works its way down layers of soil and settles in bedrock. A great location for gold is in the material coating bedrock under a stream. Choose a location on the inside a bend where there is an obstruction and then dig to the bedrock. Sifting the soil coating bedrock, usually, will produce gold.

Learn to delay the excitement of seeing gold for the first time and you will have more gold-filled dirt to take home with you. Once you get better at choosing locations, and especially if you find a proven location, its best to spend your time digging and removing dirt, rather than sifting and cleaning it on site. Delay celebrating and get as much dirt as possible to take home. Once you get home, sift and clean the gold youve found.

Another great place to look for gold is in tall grass growing above an inside bend. Grass acts like a sieve and the largest gold pieces end up at the roots of grass. They often call this kind of gold oat gold. The pieces might be smaller than gold found in other places, but there could be a lot.

If you want to invest a little in your endeavor, you can purchase a metal detector designed to find gold. This gold mining equipment can cut down on the time spend hunting, but a mid-level detector can cost about $600.

When considering getting involved in gold prospecting and mining, make sure you learn and follow the rules. There are certain places where prospecting is legal and others where it is not. Many prospecting clubs exist and joining one can help ensure you are following rules. For examples, most sites require that you refill any holes you have dug, and that you do not destroy local plant life. Learn the rules before you head out with your gold mining equipment.

Once youve finished prospecting and have a location where you know there is gold, you will need gold mining equipment. What you use will depend on the size of your operation. If you are working in the gold industry, you will have industrial gold mining equipment. If you are mining on your own as a hobby, youll need smaller, personal gold mining equipment. Lets look at both.

If you want to use industrial mining equipment, make sure you have the proper training. If working for a business, they should provide needed training. However, if you purchased industrial gold mining equipment for a personal claim, be certain you know what you are doing. Safety should always come first.

Miners use drills for underground mining to create access holes for descending underground, or to place explosive charges to bring material to the surface. The drill miners choose depends on how and what is being mined.

Blasting tools create an explosion to blast away chunks of material to access minerals. Blasting can also remove chunks of unwanted materials that are keeping other machines or people from getting to a seam of wanted materials. In underground and open pit mines, miners use both drilling and blasting tools, often together. They use drills to place blasting tools at the right depth and in the right place.

Earth-moving machines move around large amounts of materials. They might haul material after blasting, move other materials allowing access to seams of minerals, dig underground mines, or get down to the bedrock where minerals might exist.

Crushing equipment moves materials around an underground mine. Miners use this equipment to keep the flow of materials going at an efficient rate, and to save money. It is easier to remove crushed rocks rather than heavy chunks, so crushing equipment saves time and effort.

A sluice box is a way to sift through raw material more quickly. Essentially, its automated panning. These machines used to be large and heavy in the early days of panning, but are now lightweight and easier to use. If youre serious about mining, they are worth checking out.

A higher quality sluice box, high banker boxes have a water pump allowing more material to move through faster. These boxes recycle water so you dont have to rely on water flow in the river. They recover more gold than basic models.

If you arent going into the professional gold mining industry, but are looking for a hobby or a part-time job to bring in a little extra money, consider joining a mining club to help you once you begin your prospecting journey. The club will help you learn about personal gold mining equipment, but, for now, lets take a quick look at what you will need.

There are lots of different sizes, colors, and options in gold pans. Essentially, a 14-inch plastic pan is the best size, by far. Color does not matter, however gold shows up better in black. Black sand shows up better in blue or green. There are many new kinds of pans, but a basic pan with sharp, undercut riffles is all you need. Make sure the bottom of the pan is as wide as possible to catch more gold.

You will need a place to store the gold you find. All you need is a waterproof container you can close tightly, such as a 35mm film container. You can purchase containers on the internet, specifically made for holding gold.

The last thing to consider is investing in Gold Lab, a personal system that recovers gold from the concentrate you have refined. A good gold panner can get most of the gold from refined dirt, but a Gold Lab kit will allow you to further refine and recover 100% of your gold.

Once you have your equipment, its time to get in the river to pan for gold. This simple technique mimics what the river does naturally. You recover material, or dirt and place it in the pan, from a river location where you think there might be gold. Then, you shake it in a left-to-right motion underwater to sweep away light materials while causing heavier materials to go to the bottom of the pan.

Take the pan with the riffles on the far side and shake it, vigorously, left and right. This breaks up materials sending heavier items to the bottom. Do not slosh water out of the pan. If you need to, repeat the previous step and break up larger chunks again.

Continue shaking the pan back and forth and keep removing the top layer of lighter materials until you are down to only the heaviest materials, such as coins, BBs, old bullets, buckshot, nails, garnets, black iron rocks and black sand. You should now be able to see gold in the pan when shaking and tilting it forward slightly.

Use a magnet to remove black sand and other metal objects. Keep removing things until only gold remains. Remove the larger gold pieces and save any leftover concentrate. Let it sit for a while so you can recover any remaining pieces of gold that settle.

If you have enjoy the outdoors, and have just a little ambition, you can make a hobby out of gold prospecting and mining. All you need are basic tools that as your gold mining equipment and the willingness to do a little research. Once you decide where to go, or join a mining club to help you find locations, pack up your tools and prospect. It may take practice at panning before you find anything, but once you do, youll love the feeling of satisfaction and discovery. If you find you enjoy the hobby, invest in semi-professional gold mining equipment and see if you can up the amount you discover. Even if you only discover a few flakes, prospecting can be a great way to make new friends, learn about the gold industry, and understand a little about gold prospectors of old. Its an inexpensive hobby, so grab basic gold mining equipment and get started today.
