There's Gold in Them Thar Hills!

Goooooold! More than 150 years after Colorado's famous gold rush, people are still fascinated with finding gold in the hills outside Denver. And wouldn't you know it, there's still gold to be found. What? How? Where?  

If you've had a hankering to start prospecting, but weren't sure how, Gold Prospectors of the Rockies will be at the Golden Library at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, to give you the low down. They will present a short history and overview of gold prospecting in Colorado, followed by a demonstration of what equipment is needed to do it yourself, how it works, starting costs and prospecting sites. 

Bring your questions!
