This website was originally built to inform our family members of our Prospecting Adventures. Others like you left comments and questions, so I decided to expand this site to also be informative for new prospectors as well as the seasoned.
We started Prospecting for Gold over 35 years ago using camping pans and a case of beer. We lost a lot of gold back then due to our inexperience, now we are well seasoned Prospectors armed with an arsenal of mining equipment, not even the smallest flake gets by our golden touch. So if youíre just starting out in your Gold adventures, take it slow. Buy used equipment, research the area and learn how gold travels in rivers and creeks. Do not throw out your black sand it may be loaded with micro gold. As country boys we started with any material lying around and built such things such as sluice boxes, highbankers, or dredging tools I could go on forever with what we have learned thru the years and just you being at this site is a great start. My friends this is called HOMEWORK!
We invite you to join in our adventures, to feel what we feel when you pan and pick out your first gold. This is not the Flu my friends, itís called
