Didn't have a chance to make it to Bohemia Mining Days in Oregon this year? Well never fear. I was there and my camera was with me.

Pat Keene of Keene Engineering assembles a new 2-1/2" floating dredge as he talks to Charles Donaldson (Peacock). Keene gave away 2 of these dredges at drawings during the exposition.


Pat blows up the dredges inflatable floats. There was a comment made that "Salesmen have plenty of hot air" and this was a perfect job for one.


Now you tell me. Do these really  work?
