The Gold Rush Expeditions saga started from humble beginnings. Founder Corey Shuman credits author George Thompson and his book called “Some Dreams Die”. The book is basically a treasure hunter’s handbook, George set up grand images of mining days gone by and the lost treasures buried by miners, Indians, and other outlaws.
In 1989, Driver’s license in one hand and a well read, dog-eared copy of “Some Dreams Die” in the other, Shuman set out to find these lost treasures. Endless days and long starry nights were spent wandering and exploring the mountains and canyons of Utah’s remote and unforgiving west Desert. Countless hours were spent matching lore with real maps and history and then locating and documenting the old areas. One aspect became clear and consistent with each discovery, everything started and ended with Mining.
From these humble beginnings, Gold Rush Expeditions Inc. has grown to become one of the dominant forces in the mining industry. Preserving valuable and historic sites from the bulldozer blades of the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management. Acquiring mining properties all across the western states with real, defined values and deposits. One this has not changed, Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. is still all about chasing down the gold and silver all across the west.
Today, after nearly 30 years, Gold Rush continues to be the leader in the field. Providing mineral properties to every walk of life, from the beginning prospector to the multi-billion dollar mining companies.
