Artist's Description

This old machine was operated in the 1880’s
The stamper battery was significant to the mining industry and mining technology generally because it was the basic processing plant that was used to crush ore to extract minerals. Batteries (mills) were popular devices because they were cheap to purchase, simple to operate, durable in use, easily transportable (1-5 heads only), uniform in process manufacture and design, field repairable, and they were readily operated and understood by millmen, most of whom had no training in metallurgy, and/or chemical mineralogy.
