"The Peggy", a historic gold dredge, still survives in the harsh Montana environment. We were fortunate to have met a representative of the land owner who granted us access to bring you this unusually intact relic of Montana mining history.
In 1938 the Gold Creek Mining Company installed an electrically powered, connected-bucket dredge on Washington Bar. The dredge, called The Peggy, operated each season from August, 1938 to November, 1942. During the five years of operation a total of 9,182 fine ounces of gold was recovered (Winchell 1914; Lyden 1948).
This sequence was captured with a Canon Vixia HFS-100 video camera and a GoPro Hero3 Black on a DJI Phantom quad copter (drone). It was edited with Adobe Premier Pro 6.
