Gold Prospecting Adventures - Gold Panning &
How about an exciting adventure in a real California Gold Rush Town?
Take them on a gold prospecting trip to
Jimtown 1849 Gold Mining Camp where they can go gold panning. They will also see
Mark Twain's Cabin, Boothill, Corral with live animals, old gold mining equipment and *Sutters Mill. 25 attractions in all.
Gold is found on every trip of two hours or more. The guides will show you how to pan for gold. Keep all the gold you find. We have been in business, locally, for 26 years and we know where the gold is.
Be sure and check our School Program Page or E-mail us your postal address and we will mail you our Educational brochure for youth or school programs. You may also take the horse drawn carriage to Railtown 1897 where you can enjoy an authentic steam train ride through the scenic foothills of the gold country, where over 227 movies have been made since 1919.
Jamestown is the gateway to the historic Mother Lode Gold country. Walk
along the wooden sidewalks and you can almost hear the whispers of the
townsfolk who lived here in 1850. The locals go gold panning & some shopkeepers will trade in gold. In fact,
more gold is mined now than in 1849. ( Two million ounces in 1849 compared
with 10.6 million ounces of gold in 1993!)
This postcard perfect town is on the way to Yosemite Park and just
a stone's throw from Columbia State Park which is 2 1/2 hours east of San
Francisco and three hours South of Lake Tahoe on Highway 49. We have nearby
river rafting, award winning wineries, countless outdoor activities. Hunt
for antiques on Jamestown's Main Street.
The Jimtown 1849 Gold Mining Camp will play a prominent role in the upcoming Celebration of California Sesquicentennial. Thousands of students who study Gold Rush History each year visit this camp and go gold panning for real gold in the richest creek in California-and it flows through our camp.
Gold Prospecting Adventures has professional prospectors who will
instruct you in gold panning, sluicing and highbanking. Gold is found on every
trip of two hours or more. We have been in business locally for 26 years, we know where the gold is!
