Welcome to the new worldwide home of gold panning!
We have a new website, also the design has become modern.
As a recognized world network for national gold panning clubs and associations, the World Goldpanning Association promotes panning and prospecting in the spirit of peace, understanding and fair play.
Twelve daring candidates plunge into the adventure of their lives in Canada. In a six-week challenge they have to prove whether they are a good gold digger or not.
Who will convince prospector legend David Millar in the end? Who will meet the challenges of daily business and life in the wilderness?
With the right nose, lots of sweat, tears, talent and stamina, the winners can look forward to the fulfilment of a life’s dream:
the start of their own gold business in the Yukon Territory.
“Gold Rush on the Yukon – The Adventure of a Life”
