Recreational Gold Mining

Gold MiningThe Osa Peninsula has placer gold deposits that stretch across nearly three quarters of the entire peninsula.  A long tradition of gold mining has dramatically influenced the regional society and culture and contributed dramatically to the personality and character of independence and self-reliance seen in the local populace.  Placer gold is still hand-mined in many of the peninsula’s rivers and is easily accessible for visitors wishing to see how it is done.  You are certain to pan colors and will get a chance to see first hand the work required and the tools that are used, including the distinctive Osa gold pan that is found nowhere else in the world and traditional sluice boxes.  Keep everything that you find, and if you want to buy nuggets, we can make it possible for you to do so with a local gold dealer.
