"Porcupine Flat Gold sand dredge & dragline "

By dales
Taken on a recent visit to the town of Maldon 1/2 hour drive from home , these leftovers from gold mining have been on display by the main road for years. The dredge is a smaller reconstruction of the original , will attach a link for any that are interested & some versions of both Smile
Thanks to all for the very appreciated views , votes , comments and the UA's from Jukka , Tom (Tooma) & Bill (BillRookery) SmileSmile
