pretty much dead in the water at Duncan Creek right now without a hopper feeder.
Rick Nass's barely staying afloat.
He has no working boss plant, no money coming in and potentially millions in nuggets and find gold sitting in Duncan Creek, I made a call to a friend of mine here and Dawson City area and, uh, hoping to make a deal.
I don't have a whole lot of money, but hoping for a little for a little miracle here, he's turned to the man with the biggest mining scrap yard in the Yukon.
I look what the cat drug in.
Like they say.
I wreck Tony.
Things meant, uh, you know, the typical.
You started the new place.
Yeah, that was a bit scary.
You're gonna be able to stay there for a couple of years or what?
Well, it's not getting any easier.
New places, new rules, regulations.
We're just gonna shut down here the other day because you can only cross the creek twice a week, twice a week.
Just you're gonna have to get a little smarter to work around it.
So give me help you with.
Well, that's the thing I could definitely get things moving a lot better in my end if I had a hopper feeder.
I heard about that already.
And I have something to your liking.
Yes, Walking over that look.
When's the last time you used it?
And there you go.
Well, that's just Rick is there alone?
Draw grizzly nicely.
I like it.
So, what's the price?
Tag s I'm like, this tiny little thing.
Probably 1 80 Yeah.
Yeah, I don't, uh I'm low on cash.
I mean, I just spent everything I had in this wash plant.
Well, welcome to the mining business, is there, uh, is there?
Is there any way you want to lease it?
Rent it out?
Yeah, Well, you make that work.
You give me 10 grand a month.
Well, 10 grand a month is more manageable for me anyways.
We'll get Mike to run it up there.
Any time, Any day.
Well, bring it over there.
That helps me out.
I knew I didn't have the money to buy one, and he's got one, and he's willing to lease to me.
