    If you only have a week, gold is going to be hard to find. However, here in the interior (Fairbanks) we have a couple of places you can take tours of mines and learn HOW to pan for it. My wife usually takes our relatives who come to visit. You take the tour and they provide "paydirt". You are guaranteed to at least get color, and usually more. Not a lot but enough to show off. PS; She always gets more than anyone. I think it's because she has more patience than most. BTW They will weigh your gold and tell you what it is worth.When I went, I got about ten dollars worth and she got forty two dollars worth. I tried to get her to take the tour a couple times a day. LOL
