How to keep

this site free!

If you like, please save this site link and use it every time you want to buy gold prospecting supplies.  Many other websites pay us a small referral fee when you click our links and purchase from them. It works on everything from gold pans to suction dredges, dealers never tells us who bought what, it has zero impact on the price you pay, but has a major impact on my ability to improve this site!
