Kevin Bell
Kevin BellPartner
Kevin Bell was the CEO and Founder of Aurora Mining Products prior to joining Dennis Katz as a partner of Snake River Products. With a degree in Business Management and 27 years experience in Government work, Kevin brings a very refined and progressive business model to the mining industry.

Kevin has primarily prospected in the northeast and southeast California Mother Lode, but has also prospected in Oregon and Idaho – One of his favorite trips was to the company namesake Snake River near American Falls. Kevin enjoys working his claims in Mariposa and El Dorado counties.

In 2009, Kevin began work on an innovative technology called Fluid Dynamics. After four years of continued development and refinement, he patented and released the Aurora Recon and Expedition sluices. This ground-breaking technology allows miners a lightweight, compact sluice with output rivaling the largest equipment.
