GU Hosting TU For "Prospecting Day" Gold Experience

Gold Unlimited will be hosting a "Hands-on Gold Experience Day"for Colorado Trout Unlimited State Directors as well as management from Jeffco Open Space, Adams County Open Space and other municipalities and government agencies. The tentative date is Saturday December 17th 11:00am -3pm at an undisclosed location.

TU and invited guests will be able to experience the full spectrum of recreational gold prospecting first hand beginning with learning how to "read" a stream, panning techniques, where and how to dig and classify material, prospectors code of ethics, basic sluice-box setup and operation, battery powered highbanking, gas powered motorized highbanking, how to operate a motorized floating 2" suction dredge and even final cleanup of concentrates to reveal the gold from the day!

In addition, we will be removing all of the trash, lead, metal, glass and other debris that we find, from the river.

Our belief is that through education and first-hand experience comes perspective and eventually perhaps a change of perception.
