Allatoona Gold Panners –  

What - Gold Panning Outing.

When - Saturday, July 14, 9:30 am. If inclement weather, outing is canceled. We usually stay 3-5 hours, but you can stay longer or depart anytime.

What Creek - Downing Creek at Barnett Park, Canton.

Where – Park in the rear parking lot of Barnett Park. The Park address is 10795 Bells Ferry Rd, Canton, GA 30114. Map of Park is at'48.3%22N+84%C2%B031'53.5%22W/@34.196746,-84.5337267,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d34.196746!4d-84.531538

Meet - Steve Girdley and Bob Schmiedt in the rear parking lot of Barnett Park. We'll introduce ourselves and cover some basics then walk to the creek. If need more directional help contact Steve at 404-202-9646.

Wear - Wear long pants (may be briars, ticks, chiggers & poison ivy) & tall rubber boots (get at Walmart, ACE Hardware) or waders (Dicks), or water shoes when warm weather.

Bring - Pan, classifier, sucker bottle, (get at Little River Marina Store on Bells Ferry Road), definitely a full-size, long-handle spade shovel (partly for safety reasons)(at Big Lots, Walmart, ACE Hardware), water, folding stool, mosquito lotion, and zip lock bags to water proof your electronics/wallet.  Travel light (back pack is handy (at most thrift stores).

Optional items -  Snack, camera, cell, vial, eye dropper, crevice-ing tools, & lanyard to hold your sucker bottle.

Supplies - Most of us use the Garrett Standard Gold Panning Kit that Little River Marina on Bells Ferry Road sells for about $30 as it has everything you need except boots and shovel. They also sell the what/where/how-to Recreational Gold Panning Guide, and the Lake Allatoona Gold Map plotted with over two dozen confirmed gold creeks. Also drinks, snacks and mosquito repellent.

Pan Prepping - If you purchase a new pan it helps to wash it with dish washer soap to get the oil off that can “float” the gold out of your pan.

Panning Rules - This creek is on Army Corps property. They only allow gold prospecting in the stream bed with pans and shovels. They do have enforcement authority. For details see .

Who Else - Kids, friends, novices, observers, & pets welcome. NO need to RSVP.

May Your Pan Have Color,
