About Us

For more than six years, Frontier Gold Prospecting has been leading prospecting adventures in the Weaver Mountains, the White Mountains, and the Upper Bradshaw Mountains.  We offer outings and day trips throughout the region, complete with lessons on how to find gold and meteorites.

Our Owner

Our owner, Mel began prospecting while on family vacation in the Upper Bradshaws with his family in the mid 1970s.  Gold fever immediately set in, and he's enjoyed prospecting ever since.  He still has gold that he found on those first expeditions.  His goal is to share the excitement of those trips with others in a way that's fun, educational, and rewarding.  With Mel's guidance, you'll become a successful prospector and miner.


We will not put your group with others.  We will provide you with a personal instructor, creating a unique experience while you prospect in the gold fields and meteorite-strewn fields of Arizona.

Private Claims

Frontier Gold Prospecting is located in a world-famous Weaver Mining District.  There, prospectors have found nuggets as big as potatoes.   People come to prospect here from all over the world.  We have access to private claims in Lynx Creek, Gold Basin, and Rich Hill, near Stanton, Arizona.

Customized to fit Your Needs

Prospecting trips are fun for any group.  Whether you're looking for a fun family activity or a team-building exercise for your corporation, we create a great experience.  You and your guests will have a lot of opportunities to bond during gold or meteorite hunting, and we provide full support at every stage of your adventure. We'll show you the techniques of finding gold in the ground that have been used for decades.
