Gold Panning

Description / Notes

Discover the exciting history of Quesnel's Gold Rush era! Head over to the Quesnel Visitor Centre to borrow a gold pan free of charge (refundable deposit required), or go to Eldorado Gold Panning for a lesson in the historical town of Barkerville located just 86 kilometres east of Quesnel. If you have your own gold pan, please stick to designated areas. Information regarding legal panning can be found here.
