This is a rough, un-edited video tour of the Crown Point Mill. This section describes the grinding circuit and first stage of recovery in the primary thickener. The description is inaccurate in two places- first, the lime feeder is called a ‘zinc feeder'… second, the ball mill is rated at 125 tons per DAY, not per hour.
Recorded on April 24, 2010 using a Flip Video camcorder.

This is the Caledonia Mill in the Gold Hill NV area. The mill is rather deplorable but its machines are truly monolithic and a wonder in itself. Tour the mill site during the day as we uncover its secrets.
