Go Big or Go Home in Nome, New Mining Technology
Message from Thomas O. Palmer
Thought you may be interested in some of the new technology that is appearing in Nome this summer, 2013. The days of the little dredge operator may well be numbered. Phoenix Marine has the spud barge and Pacifica has five of the elevated Trackhoes with wash plants. The Spud Barge simply jacks up the barge to clear all the waves during times of bad weather and the Elevated Trackhoe just drives up on shore when bad weather comes, otherwise thay are mininig 24/7.
