My Experience

My passion is rooted in a rock collecting hobby which began over 30 years ago. My family encouraged me to develop an awareness and knowledge this field that continues to fascinate me today. My rock collecting passion has grown into an avid hobby of gold prospecting. As a member of the Motherlode GoldHounds, a local prospecting club, I enjoy the company of fellow enthusiasts as we head off on prospecting outings in Gold Country. The rewards of metal detecting, sluicing, sniping in the water and hiking our stunning mountains are well worth the effort.
