What folks are saying about us:

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jim Somers of American Gold Prospecting Adventures for a few years and I can say for certain he knows prospecting. Jim is a high energy prospector but very patient teacher. I have watched him work on his own and with students and I’m impressed. And they know where the gold is around the NorthEast. With 36 years of mining/prospecting under my belt, I would work side by side with both of them.”

“I took my two grandchildren ages 10 and 12 to AGPA’s gold prospecting class last month and it was extremely interesting. Jim was very knowledgeable and helpful with the children. Although it was chilly we all had a great time and the two children even found some gold. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. We now have knowledge to do this on our own. It was a lot of fun!”
