Forty Years of Experience

The Miner’s Cache carries the best equipment and supplies for gold miners of all types.  We service our customers with priceless knowledge that has been earned through forty plus years of field work using most types of equipment.

Forty Years of Experience

Welcome Miners & Prospectors
The Miner’s Cache was established 1978

Store frontWe have over 40 years experience in mining — and even scratched out a living as professional gold dredgers in the early thru mid 1980s.  We also have experience in the use of metal detectors from our professional mining days and are continually expanding that knowledge.

When in our area, please visit us Wednesday thru Friday (we still mine) from 10 – 6 and Saturday from 10 – 5.  (We are closed on Sunday and Monday.)   We also make ourselves available by appointment to all during the off hours of the week at the shop.  This allows us to spend much more quality “one-on-one” time with our customers to better serve their needs — and also allows those traveling from great distances to still visit the shop.

Brick and Mortar

We are a “brick and mortar” retail business providing a fully stocked line of dredges (1½” – 12” dredges available), trommels, jigs, metal detectors and associated supplies to meet the needs of the professional miner as well as the novice. We currently maintain over a dozen dredges in stock with all the supporting equipment to meet those needs. We are also authorized stocking dealers for Garrett, Fisher, Tesoro, and MINELAB metal detectors.

Our Mission

The Miner's Cache is the Northern California resource for the beginner as well as the seasoned professional gold miner, to find the information and equipment for successful gold prospecting. Our wish is that we become a tool for your success. The Miner's Cache Website is a continually growing informational resource for prospectors to make their mining experience an easier and more enjoyable one.
