    My name is Jen and I am Nick Wilson’s wife. He told me that he is mining on your claim. I know this might be an odd email, but I am desperate. He was supposed to make contact with me almost a week and a half ago and he still has not. I am very worried. The stress of not hearing from him is causing major complications with my pregnancy and they are threatening to put me on bed rest. He needs to come home, but I can’t reach him. You are my last hope. He told me he was coming to talk to you about selling his gold to you. When you talk to him will you please have him contact me as soon as possible? Thank you for all your help.

      Hello Jennifer,
      I’m sorry I have not responded earlier, I was unaware that I had comments pending. I and my website, do not have any affiliation with the locations I have listed here. This is just a free website I have put up to help others enjoy prospecting. If you need to contact Gold Fever Prospecting, I suggest you call or email them. Their phone number is on this page, and you can find their email on their website.

      Good luck with the little one!
