Welcome Miners, Prospectors and Metal Detectorists

We have over 30 years of prospecting and detecting experience, Joe even scratched out a living gold dredging in the late 1970s.

Having over 30 years of various mining experience helps us understand the needs of our customers and the pitfalls that fellow miners may encounter. We strive to offer good advice on buying the right equipment for each customer’s needs and budget whether it is a complete sluice setup or parts for the “Do-It-Yourselfer”.

Brick and Mortar

We are a “brick and mortar” retail business providing sluices, 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 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 and accessories to meet fit your immediate needs.

When in our area, please visit us Wednesday thru Friday (we still mine) from 10 – 5 and Saturday from 9 – 5. (We are closed 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.
