The Bawl Mill
October 2001 by Scott HarnNormally this spot is reserved for a little humor or diatribe about government abuse. In light of recent events, I don’t think it’s appropriate for this issue. Following are a few personal comments.
Q: Years ago I had plans for building a home-built suction dredge called the Spartan dredge. I really loved that dredge. I now have a 12-year-old son who wants to start mining. We wanted to build our own at home but I’ve lost the plans.
Starting small with quick profitability gives you a lot of financial elbow room plus real-world experience that can be used for final mill design.
Mexico has a lengthy history of mining and one of the regions most associated with that activity is Durango State in the north-central part of the country.
Roadless areas in 35 states would be affected under the plan.
The legislators soon came to the realization that Mining Districts and our proposed bill can solve many of the problems they currently face in their home states.
