Pan for Real Gold

There are lessons on how to process and extract gold personally by panning the same way the settlers did it back in the day. The Ghost Town Gold Pay Dirt is hand-gathered from a gold mining district and is known to produce 200 percent more gold than conventional pay dirt. This activity is ideal for teens aged 15 and over and takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
