Description

If you would rather enjoy the experience alone or as a couple this bespoke course can be tailored to meet your needs.

What does the day include?

  • Meet at a time of your choosing, usually around 9:30am at the rendezvous point before driving up to the panning location in tandem
  • Park up and then stroll up the Glen to find a good panning spot whilst learning how to read a river;
  • Spend a couple of hours learning how to pan and hopefully finding your first flakes of gold;
  • Lunch (hot soup and a sandwich), snacks (energy bars) and drinks on the river are provided;
  • A few more hours of panning in the afternoon;
  • When you are confident in your new found skills I am always happy to take a stroll whilst you enjoy the peace and isolation of the river;
  • Discuss potential ring designs; and
  • Head back to the car feeling tired and happy.

There is no strict time schedule, I’m at your disposal until the day reaches its natural conclusion whether that be 3pm or 7pm in the evening.

Our Team

When Mark is not roaming the wilds prospecting for gold or silver, he is designing and creating wedding rings in the workshop. Combining his love for the little known world of gold panning with his passion for art and goldsmithing, the idea of Jacqueline & Edward was born. He’s extraordinarily passionate about Jacqueline & Edward and most of all he loves gold, some have said it’s bordering on an obsession…. Mark has stood in the final of the men’s professional class in the world gold panning championships, been part of the British team and won both the British and Scottish gold panning titles. Mark strongly believes in the sustainable acquisition of precious metals and is a trained Geologist and Goldsmith, Chartered Environmentalist, Chartered Scientist and is also chartered with the Institute of Water and Environmental Management. All the gold he uses to make a Jacqueline & Edward piece is both sustainable and eco-friendly, he would have it no other way.

Jacqueline is Mark’s wife. She went gold panning 10 years ago to pan some gold for their wedding rings. It was snowing sideways but she didn’t quit until there was gold at the bottom of her pan. From here she emerged as the driving force, the determination and the compassion behind Jacqueline & Edward. She has a keen eye for design and also manages finance, social media, and most importantly… brushes Ronnie ready for his next adventure.

Ronnie is Mark’s dog. He is the watcher and the fetcher, the path beater and the food gobbler. His days on the river are spent endlessly….and we mean endlessly chasing rocks and watching over the entire expedition with an intensity akin to a deranged and obsessive works foreman. His evenings are spent pulling sticks and leaves out of his undercoat, covering the tent and car in dog hair and getting the duvet and pillows soaking wet ready for bed. When he is not in the mountains, he is responsible for covering the floor of the workshop with his happy go lucky carcass, whilst sleeping in preparation for his next adventure. He is our mascot and we are his pack.
