Gold Prospecting Adventures for the Whole Family

Catch the Fever – Gold Fever!


A Unique & Exciting All-Ages Activity


IMG_6496If you’re looking for an activity the entire family can enjoy, look no further! Gold Prospecting Adventures are a wonderful way to bring your family together. This shared experience will provide you with some incredible memories, a great story and, if you’re lucky, a pocket full of gold!

At American Gold Prospecting Adventures, we offer guided gold prospecting classes and adventures throughout northern New England and Arizona. We keep the group sizes small to assure you and your family have plenty of time to pan for gold. Our expert guides are with you every step of the way, helping you perfect your technique, answering your questions and sharing their own gold prospecting experiences.

Our Gold Prospecting Classes last three hours and are perfect for families with younger children or those of any age who are new to the pastime. You’ll learn about gold, where it comes from, how it travels and ends up in the rivers and streams of New England, and through the hills and deserts of Arizona…and the best way to find it. We’ll teach you how to pan for gold and run dirt through a sluice. You’ll have access to all the equipment you need to find your own gold—and you get to keep what you find!

Our Gold Prospecting Adventures are six hours and are best for those individuals or families who have previous experience prospecting. We’ll go beyond the basics and teach you how to read the river to determine the most likely places to find gold. We’ll focus on more advanced prospecting and panning techniques to make the experience more enjoyable and more productive. We may head to more remote locations, experiment with cracking bedrock, or spend some time helping you become skilled in how to utilize other unique prospecting equipment. With our expert guidance, you’ll have the abilities and knowledge you need to take your prospecting to the next level.

In addition to these planned events, we offer private adventures that can be customized to meet your needs.

Our guides are some of the kindest and most generous people in the business, and I consider myself fortunate to work with them. Dan Brown is the founder of the New Hampshire Gold Prospectors group and is an expert at dredging and highbanking. Bruce Roberts is also an experienced prospector with great skills and knowledge. Each of us has learned from the other and we look forward to sharing our experiences and knowledge with you!
