How Did It All Start?
Treasures in a Bag Founder, Mardie Caldwell, describes how she got started with gold prospecting:
I have been an avid rock and gem buff since I was 15 years old. During my teen years I traveled to South America to see some great and wondrous gem stones and diamonds – I was hooked!
Later in life, I became interested in gold prospecting when we moved to Nevada County. My children and I learned how to locate and recover the gold in the streams that still surround Nevada County and other counties here today. I have shared my knowledge with adults and kids of all ages and enjoy seeing the surprise when they see “GOLD” in their pans and not fools gold.
