Welcome to the Vernon Placer Miners Club!


Unfortunately, because of the outbreak of Covid-19, we have had to make the sad choice to cancel the 2020 Gold Panning Championships.

All club activities are suspended until it is deemed safe by Government Health Officials to resume normal activity, this includes club meetings and scheduled events like Learn to Pan and planned group outings.

First prize:- Corinne Burges
Second:- Neils Mikelson
Third Prize:- Mr. G. Morrison Senior
Fourth Prize:- Mark Majhen


Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month except Jan., July, August, and September. The meetings are held at 7PM at the Peace Lutheran Church.
(1204 – 30th Ave, Vernon, BC) (Meetings are now canceled until further notice due to Covid-19)
