Gold panning is an enjoyable recreational activity for both young and old. There are several books available with maps and hints as to where you might try your gold panning hand on Vancouver island or go prospecting with your metal detector.

Hunting for buried treasure and precious metals with a metal detector is exciting and surprises are always right around the corner.
