We are currently working on the development of a 85′ long x 30′ wide long reach excavator barge which will become the largest piece of equipment in the Blue Water Gold/Blue Water Mining fleet to date.  This vessel will be equipped with a 36 ton long reach hydraulic excavator, vibratory wash plant with a gold centrifuge and sluice box to maximize fine gold recovery,  and crew quarters to allow for continuous operations in all but the most extreme weather or water conditions.  The long reach excavator  will allow mining to depths of 35’ with processing rates of up to 90 tons per hour.  Once commissioned it will be named the Dagnabbit.
