One of those explorer rigs would cost quite a bit more than the older trailer job that I took the photo of.

The last quote I got for the smallest explorer rig (100) was $65,000 ex Brisbane.

The main reason to show it was so that you could have a look at the semi wet trommel.

Round and square pulsators are always coming up. Just a matter of being there at the right time.

Round pulsators aren't that hard to make. Just a few things to think of and off you go.

BTW. That rig you took a photo of, was on the back of a trailer the other day. Say it's sold.

Lefty. We need a lotto win and then buy one each from Dove.
I started out with nothing
And still have most of it left.

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

Well if the explorer can uncover $65000 worth of sapphire that I couldn't find by hand, you could probably justify the expense. Now whether bank is keen on the gamble is the other question!

Yeah that trailer trommel was in a yard next door to Pat's Gems, couldn't help but to take a photo, such a neat little set up.
