FOR SALE: SELF CONTAINED gold mining washplant built on a 4x4 crane carrier frame - 8x16' trommel scrubber. Offered by Golden Rule Placer Mining, Inc.

There is no other trommel like this in the world. This Self contained washplantunit is custom made – estimated cost to replace it today would be over $1,000,000.00 (1 million dollars)

This machine was built to be almost totally self contained and mobile, once it is on the ground you want to work.

It was designed to be direct fed with a back hoe

The material is dumped onto a 4x5 foot vibrating syntron feeder which in turn feeds the material into the trommel.

The angle and intensity of the vibrating syntron are changeable. There is also a spray bar on the syntron feeder and also through the trommel to add as much water as needed to help break up and wash the mixture.

The scrubber section of the trommel is 8x12 feet long to thoroughly mix and wash the material on a continuous basis. The angle of the trommel can be changed hydraulically.

The material then passes over a perforated section of the trommel (1/2 inch holes). This material is collected and passed over the riffle system. Anything larger than 1/2 inch passes on through the trommel and is dropped onto the radial staking conveyor about 40 feet away from the machine.

Portable washplantAfter the collected 1/2 inch and smaller material passes over the riffle system to collect the gold, the tailings and water are collected in a surge tank that directs all material to a 4x6 inch dredge pump that pumps the material away from the machine through a 50 foot hose made for that purpose.

The only thing externally hooked to the machine is a hose about 6 inches x 50 feet that feeds water to the machine. As you work the machine and feed all the material you can reach with the back hoe, you can stop washing material, let the machine clear out, then shut it down, unhook the water supply hose, raise the outriggers and drive forward to reach new material. Then you add pipe to the water system as needed, re-hook the water system, level the machine with the outriggers get the machinery running again and start pitching dirt.
