Always wear a breath mask when milling rock. Wear eye goggles, too, and ear muffs
and gloves. Our mills come with safety gear. However, we recommend buying a P100 breath mask. These are available from OSH,
ACE, LOWES and HOME DEPOT for about $40. We can supply you with the P100 masks. Inquire. If you don't wear a breath
mask, you will die of miner's consumption in time. Bad way to go. I am amazed to see competitor videos done without personal
protective gear. That is like playing with a stick of dynamite with a lit fuse. The first compressed air rock drills were
quickly dubbed "widow makers." Today's jack hammer-jackleg drills also use water in the hole.

Welcome to Lost Sierra Mining Co.'s website,
howlandflat.com. We are an authorized dealer for Hydro-Force dry land suction nozzles, serving the
greater Sacramento and Mother Lode regions of California. We welcome orders from other states and nations as well.
We offer Hydro-Force dry land suction nozzles for small miners and prospectors.
The Hydro-Force nozzle is commonly attached to the suction and pressure hoses of a high banker or
power sluice. The nozzle, patent pending, shoots water out the nozzle gravel intake, then sucks up gravel and water and sends
it to your sluice. The nozzle has a valve on it which can eject water out the front of the nozzle to create a puddle of water
which is then sucked up. Some call this booming. The water ejection is user variable by valve and also functions to loosen
up gravels. When water is scarce this is the method to use. In effect, you can run your dredge on dry land.
Most customers already have either a dredge or a high banker (power sluice) which has an engine/pump unit and sluice.Just
add a Hydro-Force nozzle and you're good to go.
For some users the Hydro-Force may be a solution for the dredge moratorium
in California. It is an excellent tool for use in tertiary channel mine pits and for working the high benches.
We keep nozzles in stock and usually have the size you want ready for delivery or shipment.
together. We also offer pin lug couplers. In addition, we offer the lowest prices we know of on gold dredging suction and pressure hoses.
Our dredging suction hoses are designed for gold mining and dredging. Both pressure and suction hoses have high flexibility,
high PSI ratings and light weight. They are made for industrial use. We do not recommend "lay-flat" type water
hose as performance will be degraded. Other gold prospecting equipment and supplies we offer include Banjo
couplers and hose connectors, which are two different way to connect two lengths of
hose together. The Banjo
coupler is a brand name for a cam and groove connector. The cam and groove hose connector is becoming the most popular,
easiest, and fastest way to connect hose sections, foot valves and hose connectors. We those hard to find pin lug wrenches to make screwing couplers
with pin lugs together easy.
We plan to add
products from time-to-time so check in with us to see what's new. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 916-987-9422. We do not
offer cash refunds, so please be sure of what you need when you purchase.
