3 Replies and 11596 Views Taking samples  11596  3 Started by I was on the Spokane river in Liberty Lake Washington taking samples and I think I found a few flakes but they looked more copper ish for no better word. I am going out again and bring back enough to run in my clean up sluice. I found them in the roots of a stump above the high water line.

1 Replies and 7360 Views Anyone else using the Gold Hog Flowpan? Tips? Tricks?  7360  1 Started by Been using the flow pan for a couple months now, it works really nice and is a great upgrade from my grizzly pan & nugget bucket I was previously using. It certainly moves a lot of material and no classifying is really nice. I visited several claims in AZ and CO with it last month (July '18) and had pretty good luck with it. In the dry AZ desert I used a flat rubbermaid storage tray that is about 2'x3' and 6 inches high or so and filled it with a few gallons of water and made my own portable...

Pans! by charlotte49er on Apr.18, 2013, under Gold Prospecting I don’t know how many times people have come up to me and said, “All you really need is a pan to find gold.” Technically that’s true. All you really need to find gold is a pan. At some time, even with machinery, you will probably pick up a gold pan. Maybe not at the start, but more than likely at the end. However, gold is a numbers game. The more dirt you process, the more gold you will fin...

15 Replies and 25241 Views Pyramid Pro Pan  25241  15 Started by If anyone is considering to buy the Pyramid Pro Pan do it. I know it seems to be a little pricey but let me tell you that it is worth it. I bought one last year and I have found it to be a necessary piece of equipment that I am glad to have in my arsenal of prospecting equipment. For processing material I can just about keep up with a sluice box. For catching gold, it catches the finest of gold, I would have to say that it loses none from what I can tell. It is easy to use. It is great for areas...

9 Replies and 16256 Views Panning Paydirt with Iron Gravel  16256  9 Started by I have a lot of dirt to pan and have classified it twice, I still have little pieces of iron in the black sand and it is making this very hard to pan.  I have two more classifiers but don't know how small I can take it down to get these iron pieces out of there.  This ground was just loaded with small gravel size iron.  I bought one of those 5 different size classifiers that set on the bucket.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

1 Replies and 9408 Views Specific Gravity  9408  1 Started by      So what is the true specific gravity of gold, is it really 19.3 times heavier than water  The answer is yes and no depending on what type or kind of gold we are talking about.  For you see pure gold that is 99.9 fine is 19.3 times heavier than water and native gold ( unrefined ) with impurities on average runs 17.5 times heavier than water.  Just thought some of you might like to be confused with a fact so often overlooked.     Ron

7 Replies and 15706 Views Panning Basin?  15706  7 Started by Being in Arizona, it seems like it'd be beneficial to have a basin to pan in, both to bring on-site up north for cleanups while camping, and for processing samples and whatnot at home. But a visit to the local hardware didn't turn up a suitable container. Any suggestions of specific products or a better store to look at than Lowes What do you use for your panning basin Main priority is something that my pan will fit well enough inside of that I can shake the pan around without banging up my kn...

2 Replies and 7621 Views Looking for Partners.  7621  2 Started by Hi Panners, My name is Paul Bierker. I have just joined and hope to start panning for gold with my kids. I became interested in panning as it seems to be the most environmentally sound or minimally invasive type of gold extraction the earth offers.  Professionally I am a jewelry designer so by nature I love gold. We cherish it and use it in almost everything. That being said. I try to be as sustainable as possible using mostly recycled gold refined to 24K and then hand mix my alloys in sma...
