Gold Panning in Tuolumne County

There is gold in them, thar hills! Although the Fandango Halls and gun fights are but an eerie presence found in the ghost towns the miners abandoned, the boom of the 1849 Gold Rush left nuggets and frontier adventures behind.

In Tuolumne County, several mines are still open that allow visitors to pan for gold as the 49ers once did, and there are several gold panning adventure companies that teach prospecting courses for adventurous miners who seek a true Gold Country experience.
