Kettle River-Buckhorn holds mining competition on Prospectors’ Day

It was fun and games earlier this month, when Kettle River-Buckhorn’s (KRB) marked the 59th annual Prospectors’ Day in Republic, Washington and the state's 110-year mining history.

The Kinross-sponsored event brought KRB employees and the community together for a two-day festival that included mining competitions and panning for gold.

The mining competition included hand mucking, jackleg drilling and spike driving. It was a tough battle for the top spot, but Eric Hewitt, Mill Mechanic, Kettle River-Buckhorn was the top KRB employee in the ‘Best All-Around Miner’.

“Prospectors’ Day is a big part of the community history and a great way to commemorate the long-standing relationship with mining in Republic,” said Deana Zakar, Government and Community Relations, Kettle River-Buckhorn.

Watch videos of Falcon Price, Operations Manager, in the jackleg competition and Chuck Blasey, Mine Superintendent, in the spike driving contest on Kettle River Buckhorn’s Facebook page.
