Great old video of mining on Long Creek in the Ruby District.
Always wanted to get out that way and roam the hills.
Never made it past the Nixon Fork area though ... some day!

Pretty Cool!!

I wonder just how efficient percentage wise, the recovery methods of that time were and how many other big nuggets are in those tailing piles?

How much more gold could have been recovered using todays technologies?

Great old video. Thanks. Judging by the methods I wouldn't think they were very efficient, I mean using railroad rails as riffles?
