In the late 1980’s I started mining with the help of my friend, Herb Kasold. Herb taught me almost everything I know about mining.
We spent many years together prospecting at our claims on the trinity river. Occasionally our families joined us. We also enjoyed a few trips prospecting in Alaska. We were together in our adventures for over 25 years.
During this time Herb and I started Kasold Enterprises. hauling equipment to outings in the back of Herbs Ford Bronco, those were the days. We steadily grew in size until Herb retired around 2010. At this time I became the soul owner, changing the business name to MGM Enterprises, where I continued growing the business with my passion in educating and serving others.
This year marks —– years traveling to Gold Shows and outings around the United States. I often enjoy these trips with my wife of 47 years, Andee Mawby. Gary Ketner and Susan Hash also travel around around helping me. Their knowledge is immense.
Because of the support and interest of our customers we’ve expanded to include an online store, MGM 4 Gold, carrying everything from gold pans and bottles to small dredges and high bankers with everything in between.
