Before the II. world war, more than 200 gold seekers were gold leaching on the river DRAVA and with it supporting their families. Even today, you can encounter a gold leacher, but it is only for fun and a little adventure.
With some luck and perseverance, a golden scale can soon be yours, because usually, one can find from 25 to 40 golden scales in a couple of hours. Gold in the alluvium is found in fine scales in sizes up to 1 mm, so you must collect at least 9.000 scales for 1 g of gold. You will spend unforgettable hours on the river DRAVA and with a little luck, you could take home some real gold by gold leaching.
