An Ingersoll Rand 55 horsepower oil engine was donated by the Betty Keife family. The engine originally operated a generator at the Belmont Mill near Hamilton in eastern Nevada. A concrete footing and pad were poured and timber shelter constructed over the new home of the engine. In January 2023, volunteers started the engine!
The Consolidated Virginia Mining Co. of Virginia City donated a Rotary Stamp mill. The mill had been sitting outdoors for many decades, but was fairly intact. We moved it onsite, built a concrete pier and set the mill on it. We are in the process of completing a drive mechanism and preparing moving parts for operation.
