Gold panning the Fraser river in BC has never been so CRAZY! what an adventure we had looking for gold. Dad and I spent two days looking at three gold claims. this was the third claim. The road leading to the back side of the river took us all the way in with only one BIG snag. And Mother Nature played an April fools day joke on us. We found great gold, and even a Platinum nugget (maybe?) The Fraser river is known to have platinum, maybe we just found a piece.
