We enjoyed a fantastic family day out with Steve. He is very knowledgeable and has access to some fantastic spots - both beautiful scenery and plenty of gold finds to keep us entertained. Day 1 covered gold panning techniques, sleuce box and using a metal detector. Highly recommended for all age groups and we will definitely be back for another day. Thank you!

Had an enjoyable day out with Steve. Learned a bit more and found some nice colour to add to our collection. Looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommended.

My son and I planned a gold panning trip to the south island and happened upon Steve's add and thought given our inexperience it would be of value to spend some time with him before heading out on our own. Well that proved to be an understatement. Steve's knowledge and ability to teach on both an adult and children's level was outstanding and great fun. You wont find a better instructor and a genuinely nice guy. Fantastc value for money, we will be back, Thanks Steve

Have just spent 3 fantastic days with Steve. We covered panning, metal detecting, sluicing, geology & even care of the forest & river. We didn't do dredging this trip, water was cold & I'm warm blooded. Steve is a true professional who is always willing to share his wealth of experience. He did most of the work & i kept all the gold!:) Quick, grab him before he disappears! You won't be disappointed! Prospecting is hard work so you better know where to look. Thank you Steve. Absolutely excellent!

I spent only 4 hours with steve but learnt so much in such a small amount of time. He started at the beginning from going through my gear to testing my detector and showing me what sort of geography is best for detecting. We even went out to the field and I happen to find my very first pice of gold with my detector!! He also went through Sluice boxing in the creeks. Steve is a top bloke and great teacher with a wealth of knowledge.

Fantastic Experience! Well recommended! We chose this for our 8 year old as he is really keen on finding gold. Steve gave him a awesome day out, he learnt so much and has not stopped talking about it since! Thank you so much for making a young boys dream come true!
