Gold Panning Is A Great Family Activity

A lot of people are feeling the financial pressure of a tough economy and looking for alternatives to expensive family vacations.  I would like to suggest that you think about taking your family on a gold panning adventure.  It’s lots of fun and it won’t cost you much money.

One of the best things about prospecting for gold is that it’s easy to get started in.  Many hobbies require you to spend a lot of money up front before you can even start.  If you would like to take the family on a gold panning activity and start a fun family hobby together, you can get started for less than $100.  All you’ll need to buy is a few plastic gold pans, a few plastic buckets, a couple of shovels, and a few odds and ends that won’t cost you much at all.  You probably have many of the things that you will need for gold panning already.

If you’ve never tried gold panning or you’re a little bit intimidated to learn the hobby on your own, I would recommend that you join a local gold panning club.  These clubs often meet several times a year for fun weekend gold panning activities.  This is the perfect way to learn this hobby from experienced a prospectors who have learn the secrets of gold panning already.

If you want to know where to find gold, you should look in places that other people have already found gold.  Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it?  Well, how are you to know where people have already found gold?  Believe it or not, it’s actually quite easy with a website called  This website has online maps that show all of the legal gold mining claims in your area.  We live in Colorado so we bought the Colorado gold panning map. After you know what rivers and what stretches of rivers people have been successful at panning for gold on, you can go panning for gold on the same river.  Of course, you can’t use the exact stretch of river that somebody has already claimed but if they found gold in one part of the river, there’s definitely gold in other parts of the same river.
