O que você fará

Let's explore California's rich gold history by going prospecting and panning for gold! They say the miners of yesteryear only recovered 1/3rd of the placer gold so we'll hike back in time up the canyon's and rivers of the San Gabriel mountains searching for those elusive California gold deposits. Prepare to get dirty and wet digging in the gravels when I teach you the time tested gold panning techniques. If we find some color in our pans I'll show you how to collect it and send you home with a vial of your earnings!

We'll cover:
History of the region
Ecology and Geology
Gold deposits
How to identify locations to find gold
Digging
Introduction to panning
Retrieval of gold from pan
Land Reclamation
Other things to note
We'll be outside, so it's best to be prepared as you would in any outdoor activity. Here's a resource of what you may want. https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/outdoor-basics.html

I grew up in the California Mother Lode region surround by mountains and the history of prospecting. My passion for gold came after moving to Brooklyn and daydreaming about the rivers and trees of my home town. Upon returning to California I set out to immerse myself in the history of Southern California prospecting as a way to more deeply engage the San Gabriel mountains.

This was a great and totally unique experience, thanks to Dustin's knowledge of the region and his enthusiasm for prospecting and panning for gold. The area is beautiful and we all had a blast, especially my 11-year-old nephew. To top it off, we found some gold!

Dustin is great guide! He is very informative and patient in explaining the history of prospecting in LA. We met up at a Starbucks and he drove me to the place where we can find gold. He showed me how to look for the best place to find gold, some geo markers. Although we didn't find a lot of gold that day (it depends on luck), I think it is an unique experience! I would recommend it to my friends!

This was a terrific excursion! It's amazing that this beautiful natural setting is so close to Los Angeles. Dustin was very friendly and a great guide. We especially enjoyed his explanations of the history and geology of the San Gabriel Mountains, from gold town booms to the formation of riverbeds. He taught us how to read the landscape and techniques for gold panning. Even if we hadn't found any gold--but we did!--this excursion with Dustin would have been well worth it.

SO much fun! Found some gold! The coolest part was definitely spending time in the river by the mountains and so close to LA. It was gorgeous and the weather was perfect. Dustin is super knowledgable and a great teacher.
