Diamond and Gold Recovery, Caroni River Venezuela

This is a picture of an 8 inch cutterhead suction dredge I spent a few days working on on the Caroni River in central Venezuela.

This dredge ran round the clock and they had a good recovery of fine gold and Diamonds. The large sluice box was effective at recovering the fine gold of the Caroni River system and they had a series of rougher jigs to capture the diamonds and they appeared to be very effective.

The layers of successive Iron cappa had free flowing gravel underneath and this robust dredge was pretty good at breaking through this to get at the auriferous gravel. I was fortunate to get to spend the time with these local miners and it really helped me with my initial reconnaissance of the river.

I later spent 7 months operating and retrofitting an 8" airlift dredge and managing an extensive sampling program for a US based company.

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.

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.
