how much is a gold stamp mill
Sep 25, 2017 Several stamps were used on a stamp mill. Single stamps, 3-stamp, 5-stamp, and even 20-stamp mills were in operation at some of the larger mines. As mines grew larger and extracted more ores, the need for bigger stamping operations was evident. It was common for successful mines to upgrade their equipment throughout the years. This painting shows the prominence of a stamp mill (the white building in the center) in mechanized mining operations. Montague, c. 1986 by Joseph Purcell.MOI I95.86.1.
