American Gold Prospectors – Season Opener!

American Gold Prospectors has debuted their Season 1 - Episode 1 video, and it's great!

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.”
Jack Duggins, Master Maine Guide FB/IceColdGoldJack

I had been prospecting only a few times before I met Jim and I thought I had some idea of what I was doing. Boy was I wrong! He taught me how to set up and what to watch for while using your equipment. I am now finding more gold in my pan and enjoying prospecting a lot more. Thank you Jim for all your help.”
