In 2010, Justin Anthony co-founded Artwork Archive–an online platform where artists and organizations can manage their collections. The company’s Denver location allows Anthony to pursue his hobby–gold panning. “Panning gives me space from the day-to-day,” says Anthony. “Something I might have initially had a negative reaction to might turn out to be a great idea. It takes me time on the water to be able to swallow that.” Artwork Archive’s enterprise subscription costs $96 a month for unlimited storage. With clients like Neiman Marcus and Brown University, the river isn’t the only place Anthony finds gold.
For prospective prospectors, a small hand shovel and a pan are all that’s necessary. But Anthony, shown here working the South Platte River near downtown Denver, has everything from water-filtering sluices to classifiers, which separate small rocks from big ones. Over the past five years, he’s collected about an ounce of gold–worth about $1,500.
