Recreational "mining" is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the U.S. today. Approximately 3 million gold pans are sold annually in the U.S. alone. Trying your luck at panning could lead to a fascinating and enjoyable hobby. The gamble of taking a pan full of material and finding precious metal, whether a flake or laden with nuggets, is a sensation that is unexplainable. Learning to pan for gold is both fun and easy.
Gold panning is a fun and educational activity for every family member. Learn about the history of the area and the properties of the land, all while using a real pan to look for gold. There are several vendors in the area that offer gold panning packages, and they will provide all the equipment you need. This is fun for the whole family, even the kiddos. Make sure your knees are strong enough to stand in a squat while you pan but otherwise, this is a very laid back and relaxing adventure.
