THE annual British Goldpanning Championships, held at Wanlockhead Lead Mining Museum, had all the hallmarks of the traditional image of prospectors in the Yukon.

The two-day event attracted a lot of interest from competitors and spectators and lived up to the hopes of the British Goldpanning Association – which wanted it to be special for the 25th anniversary.
