Excellent! If you are interested in British Columbia, our club www.bcprospectingclub.com have gold panning claims 2 hours from Vancouver, between Hope and Boston Bar, and near Victoria around Jordan River.

There's gold in Connecticut. You just have to be patient and pan in the placer deposits in those little burbling brooks and rivers in Litchfield County.

With gold getting near 1,000/OZ those meager deposits are worth another look.

I'll sell those of you interested in prospecting some shovels, screens, pans, waders... you name it.
