    Vancouver Island - German prospector needs help finding a good panning location

    Hi there,

    my name is Horst and I am a German prospector. My wife Kerstin and I will be visiting Vancouver Island in October 2018 for 2 weeks.
    We do want to do some prospecting and are looking for some help finding some promising spots on the Island where we can legally do some panning and metal detecting. We do not want to jump anybody's claim and follow the rules so we are seeking some help from locals.
    Some good advice on where to camp or where to stay at a scenic (affordable) lodge or cabin is also highly appreciated.
    After 2 weeks we'll head towards Kelowna for some family visits. If there is some good spots on the way I'd be real happy to hear about.
    We have made some very good experience with people here on T-net and have met some very nice people in person travelling. Thank's Joe and Rick and the nice people at Roaring Camp.
    I hope we will get some support to make this BC trip a special one as well.

    Lots of AU 2 U
    Horst

    Horst,
    I hope you'll have an opportunity to visit the scenic Buchart botanical gardens in Brentwood Bay BC (near Victoria).
    No prospecting there, but well worth the visit.

    There is an excellent Canadian based gold forum that will probably get you more responses. My sense, from reading many posts, is that most of the members are in B.C. and some have offered access to their claims in cases like you. Google GPEX or Canadian Gold Prospecting Forum.

    Good luck.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    many thanks for your replies. I have tried to register to GPEX or Canadian Gold Prospecting Forum but somehow it did not work out. I sure will visit Buchart botanical gardens. This is the kind of input which makes a trip more enjoyable. Lots of AU 2 U

    Hi Horst, here is a link showing all the panning reserves in British Columbia. These are open sites to the public. Just click on the area that you want to pan in and a map will pop up. Cheers
