My daughter and I decided to have a father/daughter day and decided to go to the "Mother Lode" for a gold prospecting adventure. We found a marvelous place in Jamestown called Gold Prospecting Adventures. The store had all the gold mining equipment, books and the store clerk looked like an authentic gold miner from the gold rush era.
We paid our fee, which was surprisingly inexpensive, and were given directions to their gold rush claim. Once at the beautiful wooded creek, we were greeted by what appeared to be another gold rush era prospector. He spent a good amount of time educating us in the history, culture and the dream that sent so many people around the world looking for gold in California. Another nice thing was all the equipment for gold prospecting and the boots were included in the price!
Then it was time to pan and sluice for gold. My daughter and I have never had such a wonderful, exciting, yet relaxing time before. We were trained on how to find gold, we found gold and we got a touch of gold fever. This was a delightful time that will remain in our memory for many many years to come.
The people at Gold Prospecting Adventures are dedicated to imparting the dream and sense of adventure that motivated so many in 1849 during the gold rush era, this is their passion. The scene at the creek is serine, tranquil and beautiful. This is the real deal for people that have never gold prospected before or for experienced gold miners.
If you want to have a great time, find out what it was like during the gold rush era and meet some authentic gold miners then I would highly recommend booking your adventure with Gold Prospecting Adventures in Jamestown. My daughter and I will never forget this wonderful experience nor will we forget the people that gave us this adventure! Highly recommended.
