New Gold Location in Alaska

crowcreekI stumbled across another Alaska prospecting vacation adventure. It’s called Crow Creek Gold Mine.  This one sounds awesome!  They teach you how to do everything: pan, high-bank, sluice, dredge, and even metal detect. They’re just a few miles outside of Gridwood, AK which makes accommodations easy.  Start planning your summer trip early this year! Give them a call.

New Gold Location in South Dakota

BigThunderPanningDoing some internet surfing I stumbled across the Big Thunder Gold Mine in Keystone, SD. They have mine tours, museum tours and you can do some gold panning on site. Plus, they’ll even take you out for some real prospecting out into the hills, if you have the time.
