The Suckling mill is located in the Blewett Mining District of Chelan County WA.  The mill dates to 1934 and was used in ore processing up to the 1950's.   The mill was constructed as development work for the Pole Pick mine by W.G. Suckling.  The claims was acquired by the Gold Bond Mining Co. in 1936.

The Pole Pick claim was worked under lease by another well known miner of the district K.W. Fackler in 1940.  The mill processed ore by use of a modified ball mill.  It was said that the equipment never functioned properly.  The mill shut down in the 1950's.
