This past season the Scrap Metal Round Up was introduced as another fun activity contest for AKAU guests. As many know, metal detecting for gold can produce a lot of junk as well as gold. So instead of that junk getting tossed back out into the environment, folks are given an incentive to turn that junk in for prizes. That coupled with folks cleaning up junk around the area, the Scrap Metal Roundup was introduced and quickly became a popular competition. Here we would like to introduce some of winners from this past 2019 season.
