Introducing Prospector Amanda Adkins Anderson From The Weather Channel’s "Prospectors"

by Robyn Hawk on February 18, 2015

Denver’s Own “Prospectors”
Introducing Prospector Amanda Adkins Anderson


The Prospectors is self described as a television show that follows a rag-tag gang of miners searching for the rarest gems in the U.S. in order to strike it rich.”

The show which airs on The Weather Channel is based in several locations in and around Denver,CO.  The Busse’s Mt. Antero claim; the Dorris Family’s claims in Lake George and Mt. Antero; the Aquamarine King Steve Brancato’s work on Mt. Antero; the many claims of Rich Fretterd and the perilous Mt. Antero claim of Amanda Adkins Anderson.  We are going to take a few minutes to get to know Prospector Amanda better.

It was great to start an interview by being able to congratulate Amanda on Prospectors being picked up for a third season!  ...but life has not always been perfect for Amanda Adkins Anderson.   

Your’s is a “Worthwhile Journey” a story of courage and perseverance...Amanda fill us in on the major detour your journey took.

Amanda:  I had a very unexpected shake up in my life that I wasn’t sure how to come back from. In 2009 my husband was diagnosed with leukemia, and the kids and I spent as much time with him as we could and I still had to pay the bills and keep the family going. I worked harder than I ever had before and faced with a new set of challenges, the digging and the kids kept me going even after he passed away. I learned how short and precious life is and I don’t take one minute for granted. I never thought I would find someone to share my life with again, someone who could understand what it is to dig full time and to work in the elements and elevation like gemstone miners do.

I think that the viewers last season really enjoyed watching your relationship with Travis blossom.

Amanda:  When I met Travis. I had gone from digging alone most of the time and learning that is the very scary, very quick way to get injured and stranded! I had to learn the hard way to not go digging alone after several falls, cuts, severed crushed finger and breaks. Digging alone is the worst thing a rockhound can do! Travis has taken a huge amount of worry off my mind in my daily work and life now, as well as brought his expertise, also being prospector and miner since he was a small child. He had a similar upbringing to mine, digging and mining with his father as well. We were married April 24th 2013 and he has been an amazing, uplifting bright light in my life for over a year now.  I never thought I could see this happy ending in my life but I’m sure glad to be living it now! As a couple, we hike farther, dig faster, and produce more gems than ever before on our own. This is an amazing new chapter in my life that keeps bringing new digging adventures our way. We have produced an incredible amount of gemstones and mineral specimens over the past year and continue to work on new locales.

Where did you get the “rockhound” bug?  

Amanda:  I began mining at the age of 12 and although I had been a rockhound in West Virginia before that, 12 is the age I actually made my first gemstone sale, a brilliant garnet parcel that I had collected from the La Veta, Colorado area, not far from where we lived. My father, Greg Adkins and my cousin Oakley Adkins decided to take me on their gold panning and prospecting trips. I soon began to see the very tiny flakes of gold in my pan and my attention quickly turned to the brilliant, fiery red gems that also turned up with the black sand and gold in the pan. I would keep them in a small vile and show my father and cousin, who would just smile and let me know that those red gems were January’s birthstone. I was fascinated, and HOOKED! While the gold was fun, I found hunting gemstones to be way more fun! Oakley then shared with me his many pegmatite, prospecting, and gemstone secrets and my father continued to take me hiking and gem hunting. In over two decades of prospecting Colorado now, I will never forget that first gemstone I found, or the jumpstart of knowledge and locations at a young age that I will be forever grateful for. No matter where life has taken me in the time between then and now, one thing never changed. I have always been pursuing the next gemstone locale, finding new areas, hiking a bit farther, steadily learning as I go until I turn up enough gems to keep my family going.

But taking on prospecting as a career versus a weekend hobby is a huge step - what are some of the things you found necessary to make the leap?

Amanda:  I have to say that the jump between a rockhound/hobby and gemstone mining as a career is a huge, life altering jump. It has taken all of over two decades for me to gather the inventory, buyers, and resources needed to make this a full time job. In 2012 I was honored to win the 3rd Year Prospecting Competition by the Greater Denver Area Gem and Mineral Show. I was blown away and never expected to place in that tough competition but very honored and excited to!


Most women would not think of full time miner when confronted with raising a large family.

Amanda:  Raising my children while being a full time miner has its challenges but overall I think it has been good that I get to spend larger stretches of time with them when I am home, and even the times I get to take them digging with me. When the kids are sick, I do not have to call a boss and beg for time off so that has been the main plus in this particular form of self-employment.

The Weather Channel’s Prospectors must be a welcome paycheck?

Amanda:  The reality television series PROSPECTORS has been a most interesting event over the past couple years! Now there is a large audience following us to a couple of our favorite gemstone mines as we locate and extract gemstone pockets for the world to see, since the show is not only on the Weather Channel in America but it is also on National Geographic worldwide!

Has your role on Prospectors opened any other doors?

Amanda:  This year I had the honor of being a guest on Jewelry Television (JTV) to showcase and sell, and help be the voice for American mined gemstones in their new American Splendor collection.

I will continue to make guest appearances with them in the future.

I always like to finish up an interview with recommendations - books and anything else my guest recommends:

For info on gemstone and pegmatite mining, Amanda suggests Jim Clanin’s book The Fundamentals of Mining for Gemstones and Mineral Specimens.

For prospecting supplies, mining equipment and tools, Travis and Amanda use Doc’s Detecting Supply as he has generously helped us along with our tools and equipment. http://www.docsdetecting.com ...you’ll see these tools in action on the upcoming season 3 of Prospectors that airs in November.

Hoping Prospectors continue with NEW shows this year. My wife and I “love” all the prospectors and get excited with each new episode. I’m an “old” rock hound and did my digging, cutting and polishing while living in California. I went out into desert around Needles, CA to find my specimens. Others I purchased when Rock Shops were still popular in the 60s. Love all my desert finds, but also love semi-precious gemstones even more. Good Luck on finding the BIG ones. Ray in Arizona

Judi Edenson March 29, 2016 at 1:16 am

Dear Amanda,
We all love watching your adventures! You are such an inspiration to all women!
If your marriage to Travis wasn’t right for you,so be it!the only reason I can surmise is that your children didn’t mesh with him. We all know our children come first!
Luv your new lady partner! Very spiritual, & sincere.
Looking forward to more episodes of my favorite show,
Luv ya, Judi

Sharon McBride February 14, 2016 at 7:48 am

We can never get enough of this great show. it is funny how we have made the show part of our most watched list. We hate waiting between seasons and over whelmed when it returns. We always hope that Amanda is on every episode and miss that hunk of a husband. They were meant to meet each other and be together. You saw that from the start. We were so excited for both of them, Amanda to have support of a great guy and Travis for receiving the best of all, Amanda. Hope all the children are good and Amanda bring them a new step-father who is such a great person with a good heart. We watch reruns over and over. Even at 64, I would still like to go and dig just to add to my rock collection and would love to stay at a lower elevation (bad knees you know).
Best Wishes to all and thank you for adding to our lives and bring joy to 2 sisters.
Most sincerely,
Sharon and Karen

Amanda, I just watched an episode of prospectors here in Wichita Kansas. Today is January 31,2016. You were mining with a female I think her name was Jessica. Was this an older show or was this a new episode? Are you and Travis still married? I sure hope so cause I thought you made a great couple. Hope life is good for you. Thank you for doing what you do. Sincerely, Patty

bunny weatherford February 1, 2016 at 2:29 am

The Cast Of Prospectors

I’m not sure if this is even going to get to any of the members of the prospectors teams or not but I’m a huge fan of the show.
My girlfriend loves the show but hates me watching it because I attend to tone her out and ignore her a little bit. But ( Oh well sorry baby my shows on ) I’ve been with her for 10 years but with a family of 6. Its extremely hard to make ends meet with bills an keeping a roof over my families head (renting) an food on their plates but we do make ends meet. I’m not emailing you to give you a sob story because i do realize there are allot of people an families way worst off then me. But when tax season comes around we as a family do like to take that one trip somewhere its usually nothing major but just something to show the kids theres a cool world out there besides florida an amusement parks although we do intend to go with them because I have young ones. But it makes us happy together as a family. Well i’m getting at is the last couple of years I know my girlfriend has been wanting a wedding ring an she has a custom one in mind but nothing to Extreme. I would love to take a trip out there to go prospecting for blue Aqua Marines loves those gems and I would love to make a custom wearing one day with them. I would love to go prospecting with you guys just to keep a blue aqua or two and the rest is all yours from what I find. It would make my dream come true. and hers as well and she would absolutely go crazy if I customized a ring around a beautiful gem like that. I understand it’s hard work and I know no one’s probably going to read this but I hope someone responds even if it’s a no I’m sorry or just so I know I was heard thank you. I hope to get positive feedback. This is how to contact me if anyone of you amazing groups would like to help me out with my Fantasy.

This new season of Prospectors. Amanda was with a new partner….. Did Travis, and Amanda split ways.?.. I was so sorry to see her without him. She looks like she has been hurt emotionally. I wish her the very best. My husband , and i, really enjoy watching her, and all the others too.

david January 25, 2016 at 9:27 pm

WHERE ARE YOU TIS YEAR AMANDA? AND WHAT HAPPENED TO TRAVIS? WHY DO YOU HAVE A NEW WOMAN PARTNER? HUMM..

Joy January 21, 2016 at 9:43 pm

Where is Travis this year? Have he and Amanda Split up<

Diane Smith January 18, 2016 at 1:49 am

i love not only watching the show, but getting an education from the likes of Amanda and Travis. They are extremely knowledgeable in how to spot great spots for digging. They tell us all what they look for when hunting out a location to begin in terms that prove there is way more than luck involved in the process. For those folks who feel they can just poke around and stumble upon treasure, this is an awakening in what danger there lies for an uneducated jackass. I’d love to do this, but have enough respect for the practice to know that just watching a few seasons of the show or reading a few books, is not at all enough to get me anywhere. There’s not enough luck in the world that can get you educated enough for that. So God bless all of the hardworking, dedicated miners on the show, for sharing their passion. And for showing us all, the work that actually goes into making the treasure seeking dream come true!

rose ren January 16, 2016 at 10:17 pm

Hi amanda ,,my name is rose ren,i watch your show every week we love it. We dig in a small rock pile that came out of a mine in rosiclair il.

Hi Amanda I am in love with the show and would love to fly there and go mining with you. I’m sure alot of people ask. This would be a dream come true for me and more future mining experience. I do not wish to be on the show though. Unless I get good. Lol. Hopefully we can talk soon

Hello;
Unfortunately, I have missed part of this season. When I taped it the other night, a lady was with Amanda, and I’m just wondering why she isn’t with her husband? I really have enjoyed watching them together, and was pleased that she found someone that she loved again.
Thank you,

I am attempting to follow Amanda here as I do on the weather channel, hoping to find smokey quartz or other ge!s such as aquamrine or bother beautiful stones she has found. I am currently in Salida
And wondering what gems I can locate that Amanda has dug out of her claim. It would be a treat to purchase a stone that she. Has dug herself, Thank you for any information you can provide!

Joyce Henderson September 30, 2015 at 2:46 am

I greatly admire you and am happy that you have Travis in your life, I watch the show and always hope that you will find the next great pocket, you deserve it, best wishes!

Susan phibbs-LaMonica September 23, 2015 at 9:34 pm

Amanda I admire what you do. It’s a big dream of mine & would love to do it some day. Love watching you is pretty amazing.

Sherry Pace September 7, 2015 at 7:03 pm

I’m glad for the look into prospecting. I would like to see if there is a way to get a phantom crystal not necessarily large but a clear crystal. I can be reached on my e-mail address .

Tori September 3, 2015 at 12:44 pm

Amanda Adkins is a liar. She isn’t raising her kids. Other people are. She uses people….men to get what she wants. I will never watch this show again.

Bobby McKinney August 26, 2015 at 8:50 pm

I love the show. I am a Civil War relic diggers and this just fits right in with me. Great fun to watch the show.

Charlie Postle June 24, 2015 at 10:51 pm

You and Travis are wonderful people to watch on your prospecting show. I’m 74 years old, and I enjoy seeing the excitement on your faces when you hit a pocket of nature’s gifts. It amazes me to see the two of you ejoying your lifestyle, interacting with nature, your family and each other. I sincerely hope you get to keep going on your shared adventures. How great would that be? If you can spare a publicity photo, that would be great, too.
Good luck mining, Charlie.

betty slay June 14, 2015 at 8:25 pm

You don’t know how I enjoy the show everyone seems so true just everyday people working very hard. Hope to see all of you for a long time .

Marci French June 2, 2015 at 10:55 pm

I watch prospectors all the time.
Amanda has inspired me by her perseverance, her determination, and her love of God.

Hi Amanda and Travis, enjoy your show very much. As an amateur rock hound I think what your doing is amazing. I am now 68 and cannot walk far but still walk with my head down searching the ground. Are you doing any shows on the east coast. I live in Maine and we travel alot. Keep up the great work which will inspire young children to work hard for what ever they wish to do.

I found a blue rock that looks both salty and blue and I was wondering how I can find out what this rock actually is and it’s worth?
