Welcome Miners & Prospectors

We have over 40 years experience in mining — and even scratched out a living as professional gold dredgers in the early thru mid 1980s. We also have over 40 years experience in the use of metal detectors and are continually expanding that knowledge.

When in our area, please visit us Wednesday thru Friday (we still mine) from 10 – 5 and Saturday from 10 – 4. (We are closed on Sunday thru Tuesday.) We also make ourselves available by appointment to all “out of towners” during the off hours of the week at the shop. This allows us to spend much more quality “one-on-one” time with our customers to better serve their needs — and also allows those traveling from great distances to still visit the shop.

Brick and Mortar

We are a “brick and mortar” retail business providing a fully stocked line of dredges (2” – 8” dredges available), trommels, high bankers, dive equipment, metal detectors, rock crushers, processing equipment and associated supplies to meet the needs of the professional miner as well as the novice. We have an assortment of dredges available with all the supporting equipment to meet those needs. We are also authorized stocking dealers for Garrett, Falcon, Fisher, Makro, XP Deus and MINELAB metal detectors and maintain a large supply of the most popular units to meet your immediate needs.

Our Mission

The Miner’s Cache is the Northern California resource for the beginner as well as the seasoned professional gold miner, to find the information and equipment for successful gold prospecting. Our wish is that we become a tool for your success. The Miner’s Cache Website is a continually growing informational resource for prospectors to make their mining experience an easier and more enjoyable one.
