I started gold prospecting at a young age. But it wasn’t until around 2012 when I started to build my first pieces of gold prospecting equipment. Let me tell you, they were NOT the most efficient machines out there. They were heavy, hard to transport from point A to B, and honestly not the prettiest. I was not sure I wanted my gold prospecting adventures to be such a chore. So, I decided I was going to go out and buy a nice aluminum highbanker from the retailer. I went out, but all I could find were expensive machines that looked like they would rattle to pieces with a few shovel fulls of rocks thrown on them. And that’s where it all began. I then decided I was going to start manufacturing my own equipment. I wanted to bring something to the table that no one else had yet, at least not locally. I wanted this to be an affordable hobby for everyone. Alberta Gold Equipment started out as just a facebook page….and we have grown to be so much more than that. We have grown into this amazing company, and we have all of you to thank for that!! – Chris
We were very fortunate to begin our journey having our very first retail space in the lower level of the Mercer Warehouse, known as a little place called Vacancy Hall. With 7 little pop-up shops occupying the space, it’s such and amazing and unique little piece of downtown Edmonton. If you are ever in the area, be sure to check it out!!
Not only did we decide to open a prospecting store there, but because 3D printing is such a huge part of our company, we wanted to incorporate that as well. The picture at the top is our very first store location. We wanted to bring more of the 3d printing world to the mix. Our store was a combination of the historical gold prospecting and the new age technology of 3D printing. That opened us up to a lot of opportunities. If you ever came into our store in the Mercer Building you were able to see first hand how this allowed us to be so unique and set us apart from all the other builders out there.
However, we very quickly outgrew our little space, and thought a little bit of a bigger unit might be suitable for our needs. And it was great!!
But we still felt like we needed a bit more room. Not to mention it would be AMAZING to have a warehouse attached so we could both be at the store on a daily basis! So we kept our eyes open for the right opportunity to open up for us.
Well…that opportunity came quicker than expected and within one month we moved into our brand new location (details below). We are very happy with our new space and how many people have stopped in to say hello. To finally be able to meet everyone we have been chatting with over the years through social media, has really been a pleasure and we appreciate each and every one of you SOOO MUCH!!

You can now find us at 4360 82 Avenue, Edmonton Alberta. Come check out our HUGE warehouse, showroom, and more! There is tonnes of free parking, and the location is very easy to get to. Just type us into google and you should see us pop right up!!
AGE is now one of the leading innovators in local, hobby and small-scale gold mining equipment.

Alberta Gold Equipment: How we started
It was around 2012 when we started to build our first pieces of gold prospecting equipment. At that time, our products were heavy, hard to transport from point A to B, and unappealing. Due to this problem, we decided to go out and purchase a nice aluminium high banker from a retailer. We attempted to find the equipment we wanted, however, all of them were expensive machines that looked like they would break into pieces with just a few rocks thrown at them.
It was then when we decided to start manufacturing our own equipment. Since we wanted to bring something new to the table, we aimed to make gold prospector tools affordable for everyone. Alberta Gold Equipment started out as a Facebook page and have grown into this amazing company—we have all of you to thank for that!
We were fortunate to begin our journey having our very first retail space in the lower level of the ‘Mercer Warehouse’, known as a little place called ‘Vacancy Hall’. If you are ever in the area, be sure to check it out!!
Moreover, since ‘3D printing’ was such a huge part of our company, we wanted to include that as well. Our store is a mix of the historical gold prospecting and the new age technology of 3D printing—which gave us a lot of opportunities.
