About Gold Panning
Each each gold Panning Lesson is about 10 minutes long with one of our panning specialists which are provided at the end of your Gold Mine Tour. Panning can gold pan up to an hour after the tour. We also provide gold pans to borrow, or bring your own! If you find gold or other treasures that you want to take home, we sell glass vials for your Colorado gold and gems to take home!
Gold Panning Q&A:
Q: What is it like to pan for gold during the colder months?
We provide the unique experience of learning to gold pan underground! Gold panning lessons are given by our tour guides at our underground water tanks. They are supplied with Colorado gold and other gems that are naturally found in the creek during the summer. Guests are welcome to keep anything that they find!
Q: Can I gold pan in the creek during the colder season?
During colder months, our creek is typically frozen over with ice. For questions regarding the condition of our creek, call 303.567.0422!
Q: Do I need to bring certain clothing for gold panning?
