911MPE hassmall gold mining equipment for sale andmore specifically mineral processing equipment. Our equipment is best used in small scale extractive metallurgyoperations operated by small miners or hobbyist prospectors and mining fanatics. 911MPE offers gold mining equipment as well as processing equipment applicable to most any base metals: copper, lead, zinc, nickel, tin, tungsten and more. For the relatively small size of equipment offered, sample preparation and metallurgical laboratories can economically buy good alternatives to the usually unaffordable equipment for sale in the classic market place.
911MPE has for target market what mining professionals consider the pilot-plant scale mining operation or artisanal mining operations with a focus around under 500TPD. Metals you can extract include: gold, silver or other of the precious group as well as the classic base metals; copper, lead, zinc, nickel, molybdenum. Much of our ultra-small scale equipment allows you to process from just a few kilo (pounds) per day and work on your passion for a small budget.
You can buy from us mineral processing equipment starting from crushing, grinding, classification, dredging, gravity separation, flotation, pumps, water treatment and smelting. A line of ovens, furnaces and laboratory equipment is also available.
Making a complete list of gold mining equipment starts with defining the type of gold mining you are doing and the budget you have at your disposal. The type of mining relates to hard rock,eluvial, or placer; alluvial deposits. The capital budget you have to invest in buying your equipment with dictate the scale at which you want to mine and influence the long-term operating costs of your mining operation.
Since most of the information online provides lists of gold mining equipment for amateur level mining with equipment like: gold pans, metal detectors, mini sluice box, blue bowl, geologist rock pick, soil scoop, hand screens/classifiers. The items listed just now fall closer to gold prospecting tools and equipment than actual mining.
I will present here what I consider are major equipment lists for 3 types of mining operations. Remember now, a metallurgist is writing. This will not be flawless and since my speciality is process equipment, that is mostly what will be discussed.
Some amateur level gold prospecting equipment such as metal detectors are often classified as mining equipment by small miners/prospectors operating as a hobby. These items include but are not limited to:
Mostly shop built and recently refurbished, in use during late winter and spring of 2012. (Unfortunately we struck out on our claim so we are forced to liquidate our equipment. As they say, our loss, your gain.)
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).

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. 1975 GMC 6000 Flatbed Stake Truck: 200k+ miles (odo stopped years ago), but solid engine and tranny. Gas 350 V8, stick, 4spd with hi/lo. Needs a new parking brake drum, and passenger side door mirror taken off on a tree (don't ask...). Awaiting clean title. 1985 Ford F250 Diesel 4WD Pickup (clean title): takes a beating, a great "mine truck".
In no particular order. Note: this plant was literally running the day before I shot these (3/27/2012), so things don't look pretty. This is real machinery from a real operation. Sadly, there is just not enough gold in the ground here to make it pay.
SHIPPING: This is a local pickup auction, but we can assist in arranging regional transportation through several local people who can move heavy equipment. The entire plant is probably two flatbed truckloads, plus the trailers, which could be hauled with the vehicles included. For longer distance, we recommend hiring an interstate equipment moving firm. Loading is not included in the price but service is available at modest rates.
Using a gold wash plant, exposed gold-bearing gravels are mined using a bulldozer that pushes and stockpiles the gravel near a wash plant. The stockpiled gold-bearing gravel is then fed into the wash plant by a front-end loader or large backhoe. This practice promotes equipment efficiency by allowing the bulldozer to continue mining while the loader or backhoe feeds the wash plant at a steady rate. When the mined gravel is fed into the washplant. It is classified by particle size using various stationary or vibrating screens. Classifying gravels provides for more efficient gold recovery, reduced water consumption, and facilitation of mine site rehabilitation, and is practiced by most operators. The oversize material, usually larger than two inches, slides out of the washplant into a pile where it can be moved by a front-end loader or bulldozer. The undersize material and gold-bearing gravel is mixed with water and flows through the sluicebox where the gold and heavy black sands are concentrated. Tailings are gravel, sand, and other materials accumulated at the end of the sluicebox. Tailings are routinely moved away from the sluicebox by a loader or bulldozer.
The water that carries the gold-bearing gravel through the sluicebox becomes sediment-laden and turbid. This muddy process water flows from the end of the sluicebox over a pile of fresh tailings into a series of settling ponds. These ponds are designed to hold the muddy water long enough for the fine sediments to settle. The physical design of the ponds depends upon the amount of water flowing through the system, the sediment characteristics of the gravels being worked, and the physical characteristics of the site. Most mines use a series of small settling ponds to permit more flexible water management. Small ponds are usually easier to build, repair, dean, replace, bypass, and rehabilitate than larger ponds. The use of pre-settling ponds is encouraged. A pre-settling pond is located in the tail race between the sluice and the first settling pond. Sands and other heavy settleable solids are collected here where they are easy to wash.
However, some zero-discharge systems do have occasional discharges, usually due to water seepage through pond dikes. This seepage almost always meets the settleable solids effluent standards, and in most cases, Is probably of better quality than the water discharged from typically operated settling ponds. I.e., less settleable solids and lower turbidity. Carefully designed and Implemented water management practices are required to achieve zero discharge of muddy water into adjacent streams. Water used in the sluicing process Is pumped from the nearby stream through the washplant and into the settling ponds. Water Intake from the stream Is suspended when the ponds contain adequate water to support continued sluicing operations by recycling pond water to the washplant. In some cases, groundwater seepage Into the settling ponds may be sufficient to eliminate the need for adding stream water to the system. The practice of zero discharge and the recycling of mine water contributes to compliance with federal effluent limitations and State water quality standards.
Placer mining involves equipment ranging from a simple gold pan all the way up to trucks, excavators, and a gold wash plant.This type of gold prospecting usually involves less investment and will consistently yield small amounts of gold, with occasional bonanzas for those who are persistent. If you can learn to reliably return from every trip with decent concentrates, so that over time you fill a five-gallon bucket, and then maybe even a fifty-five-gallon drum, with black sands, magnetite, ilmenite, rare earth elements (REEs), and gold, you will be rewarded in the long run.
Either way, your long-term goals are your own.Very few prospectors are simply in it for the money, looking at this as a way to become a millionaire overnight. Some of us just like to get out of town, camp in the mountains, and enjoy the spirit of the outdoors. Some people like to work up a little sweat and appetite, improve their health, and learn a little. Some of us like to solve problems and run machinery, and enjoy the challenge of keeping a pump going or making sure the sluice is running right. Still others like the wildlife, the scenery, and the historical importance of the Wild West, and bring back their riches as photos and videos. In each case, if you toss in a little gold fever as motivation and stay scientific about your sampling and exploration, you will prosper far and above the value of your recovered material.
Still, a nice payday is always a treat. One sure way to reach that goal is to keep trying. Keep practicing, keep exploring, and keep getting out in the field. Another truism that seems to hold is that the farther away from civilization you get. the better your chances.
The development of a load/placer mine and the selection of the proper gravity recovery plant is more difficult than most people realize. Television shows have glamorized mining making it look like anybody can start a mine with little to no experience. What people dont realize is that mining is a structured engineering discipline taught at university. Just as you should not build your own bridge without knowledge of civil engineering, you should not think becoming a miner is a simple task. If you have no experience in the mining field you need to get educated about the process before you embark on this adventure. We have compiled a basic guide to assist in that process.
The terminology used for this type of mining is often interchanged. The term for the type of deposit under consideration is alluvial. Alluvial deposits are formed when the gold has migrated from its original deposition by weathering to a new location often inactive stream beds or in historic watercourses now overlain by sediments or glacial sediments.
In general Placer Mining is typically the recovery of gold from stream sediments through the use of dredges and sluices or other gravity means. Load mining generally involves the stripping of an overburden layer (soil) to uncover the underlying gravels that contain the gold. These deposits are often mined with mobile equipment and the ore trucked to a gravity treatment plant.
1. Permitting am I allowed to disturb the land excavating pits, leaving tailings behind, water usage, noise, air quality. In most cases you are not allowed to simply start mining even on your own land without the proper permits.
2. Resource estimation how much gold is present (grade and tonnage) and what does the deposit look like over burden depth, ore depth, gravel size. Generally, a placer resource is established by drilling or augering holes around the deposit to delineate the extent of the gold. This is often combined with field gravity recovery testing to provide an estimate of the recoverable grade.
6. Mine plan do you have a mine plan where are you going to mine first, where is the overburden going to be placed, where are the tailings going to be placed, is the plant going to be in one spot or moved during the mine life, what are the haulage distances. Is this a seasonal operation?
Mine Conditions Where is your project located? terrain, climate, infrastructure variables How large is your concession? Is a mobile or fixed plant right for this application? How many yards/hour (m/hr or tons per hour) do you want to process? How much water do you have available (GPM or m/hr)? Is there power available from the grid or do you required generation?
Plant Characteristics Are you looking for a mobile machine that you move regularly or a stationary plant that you haul your ore to? What type/size of equipment will you be feeding the plant with (front end loader, dredge pump, other)?
Feed Characteristics Ore consistency: What is the estimated maximum boulder size (in, mm)? Is there significant clay present? What is your maximum gold size (mm or um)? Is there fine gold present, what is the typical size (um)?
8. Economic Model Once you have made some initial assumptions you need to develop an economic model (even a basic one) so that you know if the project is viable before you start. No matter what type of project you should try and establish some basic economics unless this is just going to be a small hobby operation where profit does not matter. There are a lot of assumptions required to develop the model and you need to be realistic in your assessment. Add contingencies for operating costs of 10-15% and 20-30% for capital costs.

This type of small scale gold wash plants has a light weight, easy to maintain, low cost. 2. River gold mining The river gold panning equipment, mostly as the gold dredging ship floating on the water, it is a multifunctional placer mining equipment that combines excavation, ore washing, beneficiation, tailings disposal, and power supply, water supply. River gold dredger can work at stream, river, offshore, beach side, etc. But as for small gold wash plant, the cost of the gold dredger may be a huge part. How to build a small gold wash plant? Using dredge pump pumping the river bed fine sand to the near land portable gold trommel, wash and classify the undersize material to gold centrifugal concentrator and shaker table.
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.
