Placer Mining Is A Lifestyle

You are a happy alluvial engineer when you see rock in the box at the end of a shift.
Rob Towner
Placer mining is a lifestyle that you really have to love. To keep rock in the box, the weather does not matter and you can't get tired you gotta Go Go Go! You have to be thinking way ahead of the game, be prepared for breakdowns, pay streak anomalies and have the proper trained help.

Going home a five o'clock is not happening on our jobs, there just doesn't seem to be enough time in a day. If you have any hiccups the lights are on, to make your quota of gravel that has to be run through your wash plant to meet your budget requirements.

At Bear Creek Placer, placer mining is accomplished with proven mineral recovery system. The mining techniques and methods were developed from working private projects for decades. The essential foundation for successful placer mining is 1) understanding where the minerals are on a property, 2) using the best practices and technology for maximum success, 3) managing expenses from day one, and 4) always working your eco-restoration plan.

ounce of gold, allulival mining consulting
"I have had Rob assist me on a number of occasions with my gold mining. When nobody else can fix it or figure it out, Rob jumps in and seems to put it all together
so that what is stopped or busted starts working. I would never have got my wash plant at my mine working without his help. He knows how to keep the pay dirt being processed in the plant. I have seen him build stuff and weld stuff to get something fixed that seemed impossible but he gets 'er done just fine. Rob can read the ground like no one I have ever seen, he has thousand of ounces under his belt and my experiences with him show it. He has helped me setup my mine and plant in many different regards. I consider myself lucky I ran into Rob."
Jack, Montana

"Our company engaged Rob Towner to do the final setup and complete the wash circuit of our pilot plant to begin a feasibility study of an ancient mining district gold concession
in Mexico, in order to construct a full scale modern mining operation that will eventually run 4000-5000 tonnes per day or pay ore. Rob is without question one of the most knowledgeable, and talented miners on the planet. His experience and know-how benefited our mining team tremendously and he worked right along side our crew. His work ethics are as high as I have ever seen and he gets the job done. We were right on schedule, never missed completing the days work and finished on budget and on time. 
Many thanks Rob, you're our favorite Montana Mining Gringo.
Best wishes from our mine to yours,"

Merv, Mexico
