Gold in New Zealand
started the nation.
We explore the different extraction methods made for various conditions - involving: sluicing, dredging, panning and chemicals.
We learn of the fortunes and the losses. Enthralling stories help us see the frailty of life among the gold fields.
We can visit old ghost towns that litter the areas where gold rushes came and went. In the South Island we see dying towns and others that are surviving and changing with its fortunes.
In some places guests pan for their own gold. This helps them understand its properties.
