Alberta Gold Equipment & Slic3d Printing
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 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 into such an 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 open a prospecting store, but because 3D printing is such a huge part of our company, we decided to incorporate that as well. You will notice our store is a mix between the historical gold prospecting and the new age technology of 3D printing. This has opened us up to so many opportunities, and we are very lucky to still be a part of the amazing community of the Mercer Building.
