From detecting to sight seeing


Allen in MT

Recommended Posts

Loaded up the quad to do some detecting out LSD way, Hit an old spot that produced in the past and only some bellow tacks is all I produced. Thought I would run some trails to see where they went, went and looked at the Morning Star, Lower Jumbo, White Cloud mines and then I think it was Big SD that I went into and ended up at the Amderson Mill, pictured.

A real interesting set up, or should I say cobbled up setup .Real interesting to see the scrap iron they welded together to help support this setup.

Did 38 miles this trip and had a blast. No gold but a good time

Ive always wanted to see that mess. :)

Looks like some inovated people. I see some old aircraft runway underlayment in there

Guess that was pretty cheap after the war.

It was really amazing before the BLM and others began tearing it apart and hauling it out. Town of Wickenburg rallied to stop the BLM, but the scrappers still are stealing when they can. That mill was used to process Beryl from the White Cloud Mine and a couple others from what I have been told and read.
