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.

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.

Over the past five years, he’s collected about an ounce of gold–worth about $1,500.
