Queen of Quartz

Hard Rock Miner

Karen Kaspardlov: Prospector, Hard Rock Miner & Explorer


I am the "Queen of Quartz".  I have been prospecting and hard rock mining for over 30 years, with the  ability to find quartz crystals, wherever I travel amassing a collection of gems, minerals and fossils weighing in at over 5 tons.  I am opening my collection to the public for the very first time.  Prepare to be amazed.  I have quartz crystals in every size, formation  and color of the rainbow with some very unique specimens, including naturally occurring Ametrine crystals.  The majority of the collection was gathered in Ontario, Canada.  I have owned a gold/platinum claim in the mountains of British Columbia and mined the gold fields of the Yukon Klondike.

Gold Mining Yukon  - 2021

Yukon Gold - 2021


The world-famous Klondike goldfields are located in the unglaciated part of west-central Yukon, Canada. Since their discovery over 100 years ago, they have produced an estimated 311 tonnes of gold, primarily from bench and creek placers that are fluvial in origin and range from Pliocene to Holocene in age.  They extend from the Klondike River south to the Indian River, and from the Yukon River east to Flat Creek, covering an area of approximately 2000 km2.
