Gold panning on the Nam Ou 2

The boat trip down the Nam Ou from Nong Khiaw to Luang Prabang was the last leg of our trip around northwest Laos. Having not partied the night before we were wide awake and looking forward to the journey. It was misty as we set out but the sun rose at about 10.30am as it usually did. We sped past karst scenery, riverside villages and the gold prospectors. We stopped for lunch at Pak Ou where the Nam Ou reaches the Mekong and visited the caves full of Buddhas. Having seen more than our fair share of temples a week or so before we were not he views of Pak Ou from the cave were good though. Luang Prabang is considerably warmer than the rest of northern Laos and we enjoyed being back in the luxury of the 3 Nagas. In the evening we went to the night market and enjoyed a wonderful meal sitting outside on the pavement. Thers's quite and industry in gold prospecting here! We were surprised to see the prospectors working off floating platforms.

Some of the field trip participants were very keen in showing that these gravels did indeed contain gold. Here is my friend and colleague Michael Milner of Toronto, hard at work with his gold pan trying to demonstrate that it is not difficult to find gold wherever there is gold to be found. At this point, the onlookers appear rather unconvinced. Photo taken in June 1991 on Kodachrome film and recently scanned using a Nikon Supercoolscan 5000 film scanner.
