    New panner help with PA locations

    Hi guys i just got my first pan and have been looking
    Up spots to pan for gold in my area (Titusville,PA) not sure
    If there has ever been gold found here. Kinda skeptical myself
    But I am dedicated and am not giving up...

    Colors In my pan anyway if anyone has found or heard of gols on my
    Area please share

    If you have access to a steam try to dig around the inside of a bend. Remember gold is19x heavier than water, it will sink and settle every chance it gets. Behind larger size rocks or boulders and the inside of the bend in the creek. Look for gravel bars.

    $30 an hour is real high if it's glacial. Although if it's concentrating in one spot, you might hit a gram per yard.

    i used to belong to the conawago creek gold prospectors till it disbanded, we had a lease property on the conawago creek on an island just upstream of the bridge and found some nice gold there, its smaller but still gold, we would get maybe 10 to 12 small pieces in a gas tank run and occasionally a smaller picker. our club has since reformed and moved to Red lion (technically Brogue) and have a nice creek there on a leased property and it gives us enough to make you smile. ive found 6 pieces in a single pan. you can get a nice little smile in your cleanup pan after running a dredge or highbanker

    Welcome to the net, its an informative and also a fun site. Don't be discouraged if you fail at first, you will improve on your technics as you attempt more times. I hope your attempts (pan out).
