Prospecting for gold and gemstones is a fun activity that is generally done with gold pans or metal detectors. These days, over 160 years since gold was first discovered in many parts of the High Country, prospecting can still bring exciting rewards. A permit called a Miner’s Right, is required for adults and costs less than a few dollars a year. Children under 18 don’t need a Miner’s Right if they are accompanied by an adult holding a Miner’s Right. Further information can be found here.
