Stan's Latest Adventures

Welcome to Stan's Latest Adventures

Come pull up a seat and join me here. I have been a very busy guy lately and I am really looking forward to sharing all of my latest adventures with you.

Please feel free to jump in and leave me any questions or comments you may have on our Adventure Forum below.

As I just mentioned, I have been keeping myself so incredibly busy since the last time I published a newsletter. In fact, things have been way over the top. Since you last heard from me, I have discovered 3 new lost cities and no less than 5 new commercial alluvial gold deposits. I've also been fortunate to hold some major gold treasure in my hands.

Late last year, someone made me an offer that I could not refuse. I have now come back out of semi-retirement and have re-entered the commercial gold mining business. On this page I will be taking you along with me for the ride. Among other things, I'll show you step-by-step how I am going about locating a commercial gold mining property and how I will set it up to begin producing in the coming months.

Here is how my story goes this year...
