William's great uncle mined in the Lolo Creek drainage on the Musselshell near Pierce and Weippe,
Idaho one winter between 1910-1915 averaging $20.00 per day. Another relative had a pack string of more than
110 mules from Walla Walla, Washington up to Sandpoint, Idaho, followed the Clark Fork river to present day Superior, MT.
then over the mountain trails into the Pierce and Weippe mining districts and then down the Clearwater and Snake Rivers back
to Walla Walla until the roads were put in a freight wagons took the place of the mule train.
family has long been involved both in mining and in selling prospecting supplies to miners as William's great grand father’s
wife's grandfather, Sam Brannon, was the premier supplier to the Northern California gold rush. William McNall is now
continuing the family heritage with a small mining supply company for both the small claim miner and the recreation prospector.
We are not out to "mine the miner" but here to provide a service in a part of the world
that is a small population and hard to get anyone who actually know anything about mining to carry the products a small claim
miner needs, or a recreational prospector might want too.
