Keith Hodges

Owner and Manager of Packwood Prospecting & Mining Supplies, LLC.

Keith became interested in prospecting in the early 1980's when he and his father operated a claim in Yukon Territory. As he and his wife, Shawna, started adding to their family, big-time prospecting sort of went out the window. Now, nearing retirement age, the Gold Bug is back!
