We visited the dredge last week as part of the bus tour, Yukon suspenesion tour and gold digging experience. The crew seemed a little disorganized at first, but once the show started, things clicked into gear. The gave a brief demonstration of the process and history, and the gave everyone a pan full of pay dirt. This turned out to be the most iteresting part of the visit for adults and kids alike. We spent about 15 minutes panning for gold using actual panning techniques with both kids and adults. It seemed like every pan had few golf flecks to give a sense of what it would have been like during the gold rush. They even gave the kids little film canisters so that the could keepmthe flecks and get them weighed in the gift shop. All in all, this was interesting excursion wherewe got to see the Klondike Area of the Canadian Wilderness, a really cool suspension bridge, the the gold panning. If you are looking to do a semi-relaxing excursion with fun for the whole family, this is one that you will not want to miss!
