  1. stamp battery

    A stamp battery is a type of mechanical device used in mining operations to crush ore into smaller pieces. It consists of a set of heavy steel or iron rods called stamps that are lifted and dropped onto the ore, thereby pulverizing it. Each rod or stamp is typically arranged in a line or battery, hence the name. A stamp battery was extensively used in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for processing gold and silver ores.
