About

This web site is about a couple of friends – Ray & Josh who enjoy the outdoors and decided to start an adventure in gold prospecting. Initially it was primarily an excuse to get out of the office, but all that has changed now because we have gold fever.

We started this journey on Feb 7, 2010. Every Sunday since, we pack up in the morning and head out to explore the Arizona desert in search of that yellow metal gold. It’s a lot of tough work finding gold and we have spent a bit of money on equipment, but it’s a lot of fun if you truly like the outdoors. I wish we had discovered and appreciated this hobby many years ago.

We now have five placer mining claims in northern and southern Arizona so we can find gold year round.

Our goal is to experience everything about gold mining and we expect this journey to take us to some really exciting places! It’s a fun and healthy hobby that I think everyone should try.  I hope this web site proves to be educational for you.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  2. Great site guys, and thanks for all the great information. We live in southern AZ and love to go out rock hounding, and of course, looking for the yellow metal. Thanks for putting this site up.
