Overview

In 1979 Les and Idella Wade realized a dream. They wanted to create a machine that would condense a load of gold ore to a single gold pan. With the help of family and friends, they not only achieved their dream, but also started collecting antique mining equipment and restoring it. This is the place to make all your gold mining dreams come true.
