Go for gold on Sheffield shopping street

Have your say

Young prospectors will be able to pan for their fortune on The Moor tomorrow.

From 11am to 4pm, kids aged 12 and under are invited to have a go at gold panning in return for a £1 donation to Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Kids can use genuine pans from America to get hands-on experience of the technique to search for iron pyrite - known as ‘fool’s gold’ - instead of gold.

Treasure hunters will also be given tips on how to separate the valuable fragments from the dirty water - and can take home whatever they find.
