The picture below, from 1984, is Rob Towner’s first commercial wash plant located in the Bannack Mining District of Montana. This particular spot is referred to as the Washington Bar in the Placers. He built it without using any new or purchased equipment. It processed 45 cubic yards an hour. This endeavor was carried out with Pete Hable and Al Dionne. Rob and Pete stayed in a tent on site during the entire summer. They pulled over 285 ounces of gold from this mining effort.
