Join us for a fun filled day of finding your own Gold.
Create your own stories to share with friends and family.
Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or a beginner. A serious miner, or a novice. Yearning to make a living mining for gold or a weekend hobbiest. We will ensure your day is enjoyable and you leave with valuable
information and knowledge and techniques.
We have been teaching classes since 2013. Hundreds of people both young and old have attended and taken part in several classes and are now on
there own enjoying this great hobby. Some have gone on to bigger endeavors and have become claim owners, one group has gone on to large scale mining in Ghana, Africa. Several have purchased our Gold Recovery Systems to maximize their recovery of gold.
Everyone who attended a class had a great time, shared stories and left with vials containing GOLD they retrieved themselves.
Our next class dates for panning and prospecting instruction will
be posted in the near future, check back often.:
