As a life long miner, he now teaches others how to prospect and mine, from gold pans to metal detectors. 

Josh and Sarah are both active board members of Waldo Mining District, helping to lead the way for Oregon Mining Rights. 

Waldo Mining District is leading the way for Oregon preserving mining for generations to come by holding back state regulatory overreach. 

Sarah Bohmker also sits on the Minerals Advisory Committee for Josephine County, Oregon and has traveled to Washington DC on behalf of the mining rights of Oregonians and beyond.
