Gold, did you ever wish you could find gold without using a pile of expensive equipment? Can a person jump into the water and pick up lots of gold? Well some people do just that, and what they do is called SNIPING. This style of mining is one of the best kept secrets along many gold-bearing rivers. The equipment is simple and inexpensive, but the rewards can be great, in both the doing and finding. Jump in knowing you have a head start on the learning curve that Sam Radding, Jim Garlock and many of their friends spendt years chasing. The gold is still there, and sniping is the most enjoyable way we know to get it. Once you see that first piece of underwater gold, you'll be hooked!
