™ Comparision With Foreign
Built Alluvial Recovery Systems
During the mid-1980's
the Alaskan alluvial mining market was introduced to foreign manufactured
alluvial mining systems. These units featured partial on-board water recycling
systems. They also utilized Cleveland-type primary jig modules, popular in tin
dredges by these same manufacturers. The manufacturers were Alluvial Dredges,
Ltd. of Scotland and Australia, and IHC Holland of the Netherlands. The primary
advantage offered by these foreign systems were the ease of financing available
through their national banking systems. However, in terms of performance, they
are not now, and were not then, any 'bargain'.
The above comparision is against an Mk 642D system. Unlike
foreign-built systems, our Mk. systems are designed to be mobile, easily
transported systems. IHC and ADL units are not easily transported.
