Gold Dredging in Ecuador!
My good friend Jim just made a rather difficult decision. He has now retired and has decided to sell all of his gold dredging equipment in Ecuador. All of this gold mining equipment was very difficult and expensive to ship down to Ecuador and legally import through customs. Each dredge cost many thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours just to put on site in the country.
This can now be an amazing, unique and profitable opportunity for you. The dredges are currently being stored in the heart of one of the richest gold producing areas of the world. If you combine the information in my special report, How & Where to Find Gold in Ecuador, with this "like new" gold dredging equipment, you have a powerful combination for success.
I have spent more than 20 years prospecting for gold all over the entire country of Ecuador. I have discovered far more gold than I will ever be able to mine in 10 lifetimes. Now you can take advantage of all of my hard work. Come to Ecuador and go directly to some of the very richest spots. You can pan, sluice or dredge. Heck, you might even decide to lease an excavator when you see how rich this country is!
If you are seriously interested in purchasing any of this equipment, please email me with your questions and comments for Jim. But first, please see the Questions and Answers below the three dredge descriptions.
Here is what Jim has to say about his equipment...
"These dredges are manufactured by Dahlke Dredge Manufacturing Sunnyside, Washington. I consider them to be the finest dredges available."
"The pumps are matched for the engine torque, taking a bigger bite with increased rpm. There is nothing on the market that compares with their efficiency therefore the engine rpm is less with less gas consumption.
"The sluice system was originally introduced in 1963. It has been constantly improved since. The riffle and mat combination is extremely effective in capturing nuggets as well as fine flour gold.
"The suction nozzles on all 3 dredges have a suction break which allows easy removal of large rocks caught before they enter the hose. It is very rare to have an inline plug up once a rock has gotten past the reducer ring in the nozzle. The entire suction system is powerful with the engine working at 60% of max rpm. Long engine life is assured.
"The sluice boxes have multiple height adjustments which accommodates fine gold recovery or large volumes of black sand. Clean up is simple and easy. The hoses are USA manufactured. They are tough, yet flexible.
"The float systems are made of heavy duty plastic, 3 foot sections held together by metal rails centered on top. All the floats are foam filled. They will not leak or take on water even when punctured.
"The front floats are tapered for fast or rough water. Tie down cleats are strategically positioned for accurate positioning in fast water. It is easy to pull these dredges in fast water as they rest in about 3 inches of water.
"The dredges are easily taken apart for shipping or carrying into remote areas.
"I have an entire range of new suits, masks, gloves, hoods, weight belts and all associated gold diving equipment including a Gold Genie fine gold recovery system.
"The dredges are currently stored in Tena, 4 hours down into the Amazon jungle from Quito."
We are sorry.

Questions and Answers...
Question: Can you please ask Jim what the volume capacity difference is between the 6" and 8" dredges? Does an 8" move twice as much as a 6", or is it proportional to the difference in size?
I have read so many things, its very hard to know, but he has run both so he should know. I already have a spot in Southern Ecuador that has ideal gravel which is showing good amounts of gold. Does Jim have any idea how many yards you can move with these machines in a 6 hour period?
I know what the manufacturers say but it is mostly BS. So, any feedback on how fast these dredges move through good gravel bars with mostly 3 inch and less stones would be greatly appreciated.
Answer: Regarding the question on volume yardage of the dredges... The 6 inch will move 4 to 8 cubic yards per hour depending on how tight the gravel is. The 8 inch will do double the 6 inch capacity.
The amount of gravel you are able to move is directly proportional to how tight the material is. No two rivers are the same. When you have to use a six foot steel bar to break caliche out of almost cement-like walls, the volume is greatly reduced. If the gravel is small and it all fits through the nozzle, it is amazing how much yardage you can process.
How much oversize boulders there are will slow down the throughput unless there are two divers down. One boulder man and one nozzleman is a good system. Two divers keeping an eye on one another makes for a safer operation. It is important when one diver is working alone to keep the nozzle working as he is tossing oversize boulders aside.
It doesn't matter how neatly stacked your boulder pile is. It is the amount of material that goes up the hose that counts.
