Recommended Posts


ahh species I'll still probably sodomize in the dolly pot but this will make short work of the 'other stuff':wink:

Nice mate, I got one of those too, she's a real beast!

Be very careful when removing the screen to clean it, there will be heaps of little gold balls sitting on it 😉

Have always kept my crushing's from dolly pot, put in the poverty pot , when I bought a 777electric awhile back did the "poverty pot" just before Xmass, that was a top Xmass. Now saving poverty pot for cyaniding one day. Like Trent says on top of the screen you`ll get a few gold "ball bearings".which will contaminate next crushing if you don`t remove. Way to go...............

Good move mad fish. That will save you some time. Be nice to see some video footage of it in action & the procedure & of course....results.

Good luck out there

Thanks fellas,

yeah I put about 60kg through a mates one the other week and was picking out gold balls caught up in the screen with a nail.

But it sure as hell beats days on end of pounding in the dolly pot.

Forgot to mention, if you put a rich specie in with say a solid 10gram or more piece in , it will cease up the rotor, not to bad with the little electric one which just stalls the motor, but may do damage with the extra power of the petrol driven. Otherwise they are the bees knees.

15hp petrol just mangles chunks mate, no stopping her once she is going.  

I have also stopped the little electric ones though with chunks of gold.

      Thought i would post what i came across today, not sure how common stuff like this is still set up in the US but over here in Australia it isnt that common anymore with many being broken down and sold off or bits and pieces stolen over the years.
      Its a Stirling 3 head Battery, used to pulverise ore releasing the gold , looks to have been reused in the 80s maybe even 90s as there is some fairly modern hoses etc connected but overall its a great piece of antique prospecting equipment....if it wasnt so bloody heavy i would have thrown it in the back of the truck and set it up at home :) hahhahaha

      Purchased a small hand rock crusher. Going to crush samples as I find them when detecting and prospecting.  I don't know a whole lot about hardrock and pocket gold. So any tips or suggested reading is helpful. Thanks.

      Now ,that we have one of the world's premier make-it-yourself mining equipment fabricators onboard in the person of AZViper, what say any interested parties collaborate on a DIY Jaw Crusher? Just checking to see if there's any interest. I got started but didn't get very far. Biggest obstacle I've run into is finding suitable flywheels. I think they're necessary to maintain enough momentum to keep the crusher going smoothly.
      The jaw crushers I've seen sort of chug along but I've also heard of some high speed jaw crusher designs that reportedly work very efficiently. Might be something to investigate.
      What do you think?

      Hi Folks,
      this is probably more aimed at the Aussies here on the forum Just wondering if anyone is using or has an experience with the Armstrong industries (perth WA) GRB 777 Mini impact crusher?
      If so, how'd you rate it?
