Do you know how the Gold Rush moved from the eastern United States to the Wild West? Or where to find gold and how to mine it? How about the difference between a miner and a prospector?
These and many more questions will be answered on October 6th at 6:30 PM by former professor and Virginia City local Bill Finley, who has been mining for 50 years.
In addition to his educational and fun lecture, he will be providing a live gold panning demonstration, followed by a Q&A!
Tickets are $5 for members, $10 for general admission, and are available for purchase at the door.
