Old churn drill in the new snow - October 2015


We had some wet white slop fall about a month ago, but today we started getting a proper snowfall, a light dusting of dry fluffy snow. I went out to take photos and saw the remains of what I think is an old churn drill located along the Steese Highway out by Fox.  Churn drills were used to obtain ore samples. Here is a drawing of an intact  churn drill. Those are dredge buckets lined up in from of it.
