Gold Panning

Gold panning near Lytton

Recreational gold panning along the gravel bars of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers is a popular activity in the Lytton area.

There is gold here, attested to by the fact that the discovery of a huge gold nugget a few kilometers from Lytton up the Thompson River precipitated the gold rush of 1858.

Bring your goldpan and give ‘er a try partner.
