Gold Panning Fraser River BC (CRAZY TRIP!)

Gold Panning Fraser River BC (CRAZY TRIP!)
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.

  1. Hi Dan. I'm hoping you know lots about geology. Do you know if gold runs in gypsum? I'm in NS and I can't seem to find any answers. Thanks. (Enjoying your videos 😊)

  2. is there a number to call or website to look up Gold claims like where ur at..I'm new to all this but I want to start

  3. Hi Dan I love your videos and I'm getting the fever. Do you think you can do a detailed but basic educational video on how one finds a hardrock gold vein – what one would look for as far as terrain, geology etc, how one can zero in on such locations or where/if gold would surface. I am not located near mountainous fast flowing creeks or rivers, and more in a location of lode gold or hardrock gold.
