Of all the provinces in Canada, British Columbia is the only one where there are still innumerable placer gold creeks which can be worked by prospectors with occasional surprising results. There is something compelling about prospecting for gold.

The lure of panning for the royal metal and the companionship of a gold stream are a unique and memorable combination- one which has attracted and held countless numbers of individuals fascinated over the years.

The information in this work is not intended for the experienced placer miner but rather for laymen and novices who are interested in the fundamentals of placer mining and the techniques of panning, that simplest of all mining methods. The notes also cover the histories of many of the major placer gold creeks of BC.
