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. Don’t let Jim’s & Dan’s photos [shorts and sneakers] fool you as these two are ‘old school’ respectful and professional. 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.”
