We joined the Ohio Buckeye Chapter of the GPAA and that is where our journey started with gold prospecting.
We have a wonderful family, two boys, a daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. Bill has been a sheet metal fabricator for
25+ years. Shelley has been billing for a health care facility for 20 years.
We started building
the buckabilly sluice because building a V-channel out of rocks became so time consuming to get the right water flow. The
wider flare and narrower flume seems to work much better and the set up time is faster so we can play longer and move more
We have met so many nice people and have had so much fun prospecting! There are too
many people to thank, so we would like to thank everyone who has given us feed back and encouragement to pursue building the
buckabilly sluice boxes.
