Carrick Town stamper battery model

About this object

Model of Carrick Town stamper battery. The stamper battery was used to crush gold bearing rock and in this case water was used as the motive power. The model shows the water wheel, trolleys to cart the rock to the hopper, the battery of stampers, and is landscaped to show the run-off channels and the setting. A Berdan pan, for further refining, is also shown. Included in the display is an informative description of the process.
The model is on a stand and covered with perspex. It is partly mechanised to show how the stampers worked.
