AboutPageHi.  My name is Nicholas.  I have been working in the exploration industry since 2007.  I have worked all over Canada and some of the United States exploring for uranium, diamonds, iron, nickel, gold, petroleum and other valuable resources.  A lot of my experience has been in the Canadian Arctic which is one of the coolest places you can go.

Check out the exploration services that I have to offer.  I specialize in placer gold exploration and grassroots mineral exploration.

I’m also an experienced commercial drone operator.  Check out the drone services page for more info on that.

This website contains information related to placer exploration and mining.  I have a blog with posts on exploration trip reports, gear and equipment reviews, exploration discussion and some news.

There is a section on this website for claims that are for sale.  Please take a look at the claims page.

Check out WestCoastPlacer on social media too.


I hope you like the blog.  Please leave me any comments or suggestions in the form below.  Cheers.

    Hi Nicholas!
    My name is Tom Andersson, a journalist from Norway. I am writing an article on Slumach and the Lost Goldmine, and came across your blog on the Net. If possible, I would very much like to use a couple of your photos from your expedition – naturally photo crediting you.
    I sincerely hope this is OK, as it is close to impossible to find appropriate illustrations for the story.
    Please let me know if you are OK with this, preferrably within a day or two, as I am closing in on my deadline.
    Kind regards,
    Tom Andersson
