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.
Rob Towner and Les Towner, the principals of Bear Creek Placer, LLC, have been mining since they were in their teens. Without a formal education in mining, Rob spent many years learning the practices of mining by work alongside the “old-timers,” the miners way back, working off the beaten path. Rob and Les do all their own work, including research, which is how they found their first mining claim in Montana in the 1980s. Over the years, while working their own projects, they have also collaborated with other mining associates to work mining claims around the world - very successfully. Their research, work, and extraction results has been documented in several publications. To date, their consulting projects have been in Central America, South America, and Asia.
Rob has taught mining classes at colleges in India and Montana that cover placer mining techniques. In one class, when the students were not comprehending the concepts, he build a glass jig as a teaching tool.
In 2010, Rob was selected to participate in Lost Treasure Hunters (LTH). LTH is a television regular series produce by the Animal Planet™. The LTH series involving Rob was eight episodes with a focus of mining diamonds on the Krishna River in India.
