Gold Dredging in Ecuador
(Tulsa, OK, USA)
Stan, I would like to come down to Ecuador and do some gold dredging with a 4" or 6" dredge. Can you buy a dredge in Quito or does it have to be shipped in and what, if, any regulations are there as to dredging?
Thanks for any info and would love to meet you when down there. I dredge in Alaska and have friends who are also interested.
Stan's response: Good to hear from you Larry. I look forward to meeting with you when you come to Ecuador.
I do know of one brand new 4" dredge for sale in Quito in a large hardware store. I believe the price is around $4,500.
I also have a friend that has 1 used 6" and 2 new 8" dredges for sale. He is out of the country right now but might drop back in to sell one or two of them if you are interested.
Otherwise, you would need to import your dredge and likely go through a border broker to do it. That is something you could even handle from North America. There are a number of brokers that you could work with. I worked with one in Miami a number of years ago to import a half container of personal items.
I hope that helps!....Stan
