About the Author

Jim Lewis is a consultant for both placer and hardrock mining. Born in New Brunswick, Jim moved west in the early 1950s to prospect for gold. He spent the next 40 years staking claims all over BC and the Yukon, walking, canoeing, four-wheeling and flying into remote places. He also owned and operated several BC placer mines. With this wealth of experience, there isn't a gold trick that Jim isn't wise to, nor one he is unwilling to discuss. "Of all the gold in the world, only .02 percent has ever been mined," he says, a knowing twinkle in his eye. Jim is confident that everyone who knows where to look will discover for themselves the excitement of panning for gold. Jim lives in Clearwater, BC.
