Gold panning is a simple process of mining for gold using a pan. Unlike intensive mining operations, gold panning requires very little equipment. As long as you have a pan and the desire to find gold, you can pass the hours panning in a creek in search of gold. It is never too early or too late to learn how to use a gold pan, but gold panning takes practice and patience to keep the gold from washing out of the pan.
There are many different ways to work a gold pan. You can spend hours watching YouTube on how to use it and be completely lost. Do not worry, when we take you out on the creek, we will show you two main ways that will help you put gold in your vials.
Depending on how much time we have to spend on the creek, you will have to make a decision to practice panning out each mesh size or take them back to camp and them run on our Shaker Table. No matter which way you go, we will show you how to pan out the gold from your black sands. If you stay at our cabins, we have a stock pile of concentrates that you can practice your panning skills on. Once you have your panning down, we will test your skill with some Rich Alaska Beach Gold.
