From his website:

For those wanting an experienced gold prospecting guide here in Colorado’s Arkansas River valley, near Buena Vista, I am your man.

I specialize in teaching the novice/beginner all the basics of successful prospecting, but enjoy leading more experienced prospectors as well!

My business model is simple….. You basically rent my equipment for 1/2 or full day outings, at the rates listed to the right and you get me and my experience……to guide you for free. Talk about a great deal. So, no need to drag a lot of equipment with you and if you have none, I provide everything needed.

I have prospected the area between Leadville and Salida, focusing on the Arkansas River and its tributaries for almost 10 years now.

My favorite areas to go and take others are placer gold areas on the Arkansas River around Buena Vista on private or club claims or select private properties.

So, if you are wanting a “Gold Adventure” in High Colorado, in the Buena Vista area, why not let me guide your experience?
