Alluvial Exploration & Mining Consulting

Rob Towner and Les Towner have been mining Gold, Diamonds, and Sapphires for over 30 years. Their placer mining operations, using custom designed mineral recovery systems, have taken them around the globe. They provide placer mining consulting services to both large scale mining operations, as well as, smaller - localized projects, along with manufacturing wash plants, sluice boxes, and hydraulic riffles. Rob was selected to participate in Lost Treasure Hunters, produced by The Animal Planet, on a diamond mining project in India.

We partner with Yankee Machine Shop, Inc. to provide wash plants that are robust, scalable, and mobile recovery systems. Each wash plant is designed with off the shelf components to handle various tonnage of material. We build a plant based on your specifications to maximize recovery in your mining environment.

Our versatile wash plants are completely self contained. Their mobility is specially suited to move up and down the alluvial deposit. These plants are virtually "plug and play" with minimal assembly required. And, this style of wash plant can be shipped overseas in a standard sea container.

Effective Placer Mining System

30+ Years Of Placer Mining

We don’t just sell equipment. The mining support and equipment we design are built on the decades of placer mining experience we have under our belts.

Research

Our successful mining results have been the laboratory of our research. The geological contour of every mine site is unique. The very first step is getting your mining geography correct; otherwise, you increase your risk, substantially, of not recovering your target mineral(s).

The signatory vibratory is ultra-portable and built to last. It is scalable to your operation specifications.

Our wash plants are fabricated by Yankee Machine Shop for Bear Creek Placer, LLC.


Wash Plant News & Information

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.
