Check out the official Facebook page: El Dorado Gold 2016
The World Gold Panning Championships 2016 will be in Placerville, California. The heart of the Mother Lode will come alive with gold panners from September 11-18, 2016.
The El Dorado County Fair Grounds will look like the gold rush that started
in 1848 when James Marshall discovered gold in the tail races of his lumber mill, just a few miles away in Coloma, along the South Fork of the American River. An international community will be panning away and enjoying spirited competition to find out who is the King or Queen of the gold panning world.
