On The Gold with Kevin Hoagland

Sports & Recreation Podcasts >

Join me, Kevin Hoagland, as I share with you nearly 50 years of prospecting and mining experience. My goal is for my guests and I to help you become a better Prospector. The “On The Gold” Podcast is about Prospecting and Mining. Of course, we’ll cover other topics that relate to prospecting like coin, relic and treasure hunting for all of you swinging detectors for something other than gold nuggets. From the basics of understanding gold and its geology, to the methods and the art of recovering gold from land and water, from pan to detector, to excavator to refiner, we will cover it all. Plus, I'm betting that I'll find a few rabbit holes to jump in and explore with my guests, with none of us knowing where it will lead. I’ll be reviewing some of the newest prospecting gear, from unboxing to final thoughts as well as covering a lot of my favorites from years gone by. Some of this gear will be old enough that it will be an introduction to new prospectors, while for some of us “Old Timers” it’ll be revisiting an old friend. Most importantly, “On The Gold” is your opportunity to ask questions and get answers from myself and other industry leaders.

"On The Gold" - PAPER HANGERS... SHAME ON YOU

9/28/2019

In the Prospecting world "Paper Hanger" is a NOT FRIENDLY name for those that unlawfully Record, File and Sale mostly unproven Mining Claims. If you are absolutely focused on buying a gold claim, the Paper Hangers episode will help you in knowing who and what to watch for. Side Note. Instead of paying $$$$$$$ for a claim, consider filing your own. That episode of ON THE GOLD is just around the corner. Or as we say on the claims, "Just one shovel away."
