The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began on January 24, 1848, when James W. Marshall found gold at Sutter's Mill. Our kit includes everything needed for a hands-on lesson in how prospectors panned for gold.
Your “forty-niners” will use the enclosed miner’s pan, pyrite, tweezers and magnifying glass to perform 10 fun activities, as well as learn important gold facts outlined in the kit’s Adventure Guide. There’s even a 1” chunk of “Fool’s Gold” for examination and display.
Includes 10” miner’s pan, practice and advanced Gold Strike Bags of pyrite, velvet storage bag, glass storage vial, tweezers, magnifying glass, 1” “Fools Gold” chunk, Adventure Guide and instruction booklet.
