Gold Panning Opportunities

The king's zone has gold!  I know this because every year the local people sneak in to pan it.

I personally surveyed the situation, as it intrigued me.  My nephew and I took a gravel sample from 10 different spots along the two miles of the river.  Every sample had some gold, obviously with some having more.  The gold is of high purity and the nuggets to date are small, but we only sampled 10 spots.  The mother lode is out there somewhere....
If you come there is a portable sluice in camp.  It can be rented for free, but you need to bring a small solar pump to run it if you go during the dry season.
 
Combine this with a bit of fishing for tiger fish and you have a very unique African vacation.
 
The trip starts in Yaoundé where we meet you off the plane.  You will spend the night in a hotel and then take a picturesque train ride to the north of Cameroon.  From there you ride in my vehicle to the camp, which is pretty nice.  Private bungalows with solar lighting are offered.
 
As of 2016 I have acquired another concession that is well known for gold and fishing, with a stronger running river which has deeper and larger pools for the fish.
