Gold Prospecting Educational Courses

These Educational Prospecting Courses are for those who want to learn how to become successful Recreational Miners.

Books, lectures, tapes and seminars teach only theory and principles. You must also learn the techniques of prospecting. This means field work and that is where we teach our courses, in the field. There is some physical effort involved in these courses.

Your Presentation was masterful and at the same time made us feel like we were part of the 49ers. The Field was a positive and unique learning experience for my fourth grade class. You made all of our book studies come alive and that is a powerful learning experience.
