This kit contains basic components that the beginning prospector needs to get started. It is a fun and educational kit for campers and adventure-seekers alike.
A prospector is someone who looks for mineral deposits, usually gold. They explore likely regions to discover valuable mineral deposits using topographical maps, surveys, reports and their knowledge of geology and mineralogy concerning outcrops, placer and stream channels for mineral content. By breaking off samples, they are able to test them for the presence of minerals using heat, acid, magnification, pulverising, washing and panning.
