The Klamath River is one of California's great gold
producing rivers. Over the years, the Klamath has produced millions of
dollars in gold. Even today, you will see many gold panners and
dredgers every summer located all over the Klamath river looking for
gold. Those who are patient and work hard are rewarded with color.
Gold panning is the easiest and quickest way to look
for gold. Gold pans generally run about $10.00. The principal is very
simple - Gold is heavy and will sink to the bottom of the pan with
agitation. With practice, one will easily learn how to swirl and
vibrate the pan so that the lighter material raises and falls out of the
pan. What is left is the heaviest material and with some luck you will
have some gold. Tweezers or a suction bottle will work best to extract
the gold from the bottom of the pan.
