The adventure

We ALWAYS find gold! We will meet at our Gem and mineral shop and then caravan to the mine. You will drive your own vehicle and follow me. The creek is located very close to the entrance of the mine. We are very lucky to have year round water in our spring-fed creek for gold panning. We supply all the tools and pans and you get to keep all the gold you find! My goal is to teach you how to pan so you can go off and be able to find gold anywhere. I am highly experienced and can save you a lot of time and wasted money. I’m always happy to answer questions about equipment and other details of gold prospecting. After the two hour trip you will be a real prospector! I always tell people that I wish I was able to learn how to pan for gold on a real gold mine and gold country! It’s so hard for me to explain but look at the pictures and look at the people having fun. That’s what it’s all about! I love meeting new people and will tell you all about my story on the trip.

Daniel

My name is Daniel. I am the owner of Yosemite Crystals gem and mineral shop, as well as my 46 acre gold and crystal mine, located only 5 miles from downtown Mariposa. Enjoy easy access onto our property and creeks. Located near Mariposa, this is where the gold rush began! Now is your chance to experience what the pioneers experienced in a location where you can still find gold nuggets and beautiful quartz crystals! I personally spend two hours with you, teaching you how to pan or setting you up in a great area to seven and search for her beautiful quartz crystals. We have been doing these tours for years, and I still enjoy them as much as ever! It is my goal to give you a great experience! So come join us for what’s sure to be the highlight of your vacation!

Location

So the most accurate description would be our river/Creek which is fed by our mountain and gold mines above. We sometimes like to split the trip with an hour of gold panning an hour of Crystal sifting and hunting. This gives you the opportunity to do both and it’s a lot of fun! We do everything at your pace and when you’ve had enough that’s OK. We will never push you to do something you are uncomfortable with!
