Now you know the basics of amateur gold prospecting. Some time spent in local libraries or on gold mining websites will help you pick a site that might yield riches. After that, it’s a matter of getting out and panning along your chosen river or creek until you discover that one spot everyone else has missed.
But even if you don’t find a fortune, it’s still a rewarding experience. You spend the day enjoying the outdoors, and finding even a little gold in the bottom of your pan is great feeling.
