Let's explore California's rich gold history by going prospecting and panning for gold! They say the miners of yesteryear only recovered 1/3rd of the placer gold so we'll hike back in time up the canyon's and rivers of the San Gabriel mountains searching for those elusive California gold deposits. Prepare to get dirty and wet digging in the gravels when I teach you the time tested gold panning techniques. If we find some color in our pans I'll show you how to collect it and send you home with a vial of your earnings!

We'll cover:
History of the region
Ecology and Geology
Gold deposits
How to identify locations to find gold
Digging
Introduction to panning
Retrieval of gold from pan
Land Reclamation
Other things to note
We'll be outside, so it's best to be prepared as you would in any outdoor activity. Here's a resource of what you may want. https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/outdoor-basics.html

I grew up in the California Mother Lode region surround by mountains and the history of prospecting. My passion for gold came after moving to Brooklyn and daydreaming about the rivers and trees of my home town. Upon returning to California I set out to immerse myself in the history of Southern California prospecting as a way to more deeply engage the San Gabriel mountains.

We'll be in the beautiful canyons of the San Gabriel mountains, surrounded by high country mines and the spirits of the prospectors who came before us. The exact locations will vary based on the season and weather.

Dustin is great guide! He is very informative and patient in explaining the history of prospecting in LA. We met up at a Starbucks and he drove me to the place where we can find gold. He showed me how to look for the best place to find gold, some geo markers. Although we didn't find a lot of gold that day (it depends on luck), I think it is an unique experience! I would recommend it to my friends!

I had a one-on-one panning experience with Dustin in the San Gabriel Mt region. It was very enriching (not monetarily lol) because Dustin was very knowledgeable about the history of the region and prospecting. I only wish I could have spent more time out there panning. Each pan makes you very hopeful and appreciative of what the land can offer you and the hard work of those before you who worked this land. I definitely recommend bringing water shoes/ waterproof boots as your feet will be immersed in streams. Overall great experience and an unforgettable highlight of my trip out west!

This was a terrific excursion! It's amazing that this beautiful natural setting is so close to Los Angeles. Dustin was very friendly and a great guide. We especially enjoyed his explanations of the history and geology of the San Gabriel Mountains, from gold town booms to the formation of riverbeds. He taught us how to read the landscape and techniques for gold panning. Even if we hadn't found any gold--but we did!--this excursion with Dustin would have been well worth it.

SO much fun! Found some gold! The coolest part was definitely spending time in the river by the mountains and so close to LA. It was gorgeous and the weather was perfect. Dustin is super knowledgable and a great teacher.

Dustin's prospecting experience is a blast and really unique. He's super knowledgable about the history of the San Gabriels and teaches you all about where gold likes to settle and how to get it out. You can tell he's researched a ton and condensed it down so anyone can enjoy it with no prior experience. He recommends a second pair of shoes to change into which made the short hike back a lot more enjoyable. We went in December and the weather was perfect, the water wasn't even all that cold. Highly recommended!
