Welcome to the website for Herschbach Enterprises, a company owned by Steve Herschbach. The company is mainly for prospecting and mining activities but is also used for subsidiary activities like writing and website publication.
This was the home page for The Herschbach Family Website but it has been reclaimed for other uses. The family tree information is archived here but will see little change for the foreseeable future.
I have been prospecting and metal detecting for over 40 years, starting with pan and sluice box, and progressing to suction dredges. Suction dredging kept me busy for many years, and I have used every size dredge from the tiny 1.5" on up to massive 8" units. I have owned many mining claims over the years, and currently have claims in Alaska. Metal detecting is something that started with me as a hobby looking for coins. Detectors improved vastly over the years and are now a very important part of my prospecting methodology. I co-founded one of the largest small scale mining stores in the country in 1976, Alaska Mining & Diving Supply, Inc. I am retired now from AMDS and am self-employed as a prospector, writer, and website designer.
