About Us

Clint Batchelor and Allan Walls are two friends who have taken a passion for the outdoors and turned that passion into a placer mining equipment business. The idea for the business came about as a result of trying to purchase items themselves and found no local retailers that were doing the job in the way they felt it needed done. The dreaming started and the idea for an online store plus a mobile store came to be. As both Clint and Allan have experienced spine injuries and have both under gone surgeries for them, it was only natural to call the business Broken Back Mining.

In November of 2015 we acquired the company Angus MacKirk Mining & Manufacturing from Boise ID and moved it to Vernon BC with the slight name change to Angus MacKirk LLC. and have been growing the company with improved and new products.
