The Lady who owns this claim is very knowledgable. This is a long standing family business. She was very friendly and told us the story of gold panning on her claim. Easy access via a good dirt road.

After striking out at "the Free Gold panning area" we came back to Claim 33, had a nice chat with the ladies very friendly, bought some "Pay dirt" and I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of gold in it as I've done this other places. Thank you ladies it was a pleasure meeting you.

Claim 33 is found about 10 km from Dawson. You get there on a gravel road, but it is a good road. For about $15 (cheaper if you have a bigger group), you get a gold pan that contains some gravel and some gold. The ladies that work there are sooooo good. They are very friendly. They give you a...

On our way out of town toward Claim #6 (free gold panning claim), we stopped here to buy our gold pan. The ladies that run the store are awesome. We had a great chat with them. We did not partake in the gold panning demonstration, but saw lots of people there as we were passing.

You will learns lots. You will successfully pan for gold. The sisters that own/operate this concession located well outside Dawson City are most congenial and helpful. They will patiently show you how to properly pan for gold and you will extract at least a half dozen or so flakes (valued at 25 cents) which they'll gladly put in a small... More

Such fun! The friendly owner, Ginny teaches you the art/technique of gold panning using her water filled troughs outside and your "lucky" pan from her shop. She is a VERY patient teacher! When you are done washing and swirling your dirt away, you are left with "color" in your pan. She then shows you how to collect you gold flecks... More
