Gold pans  

Gold Pans

Gold pans are a rockhound's best friend. In addition to panning gold they work great when prospecting stream sediments for agate, jasper and other gemstones. A 10 inch pan is great for kids and backpackers. The 14 inch has long gently sloping sides. The 15 inch pan has steeply sloping sides. All pans have smooth sides with sections of riffles to trap your gold. Put a shovel of sediment in the pan, hold it underwater and stir to get rid of the mud and sand. Place the classifier over a 5-gallon bucket to recover fines (7/16" exit holes measured on the diagonal) and wash lose sediment from large rocks - a lot of gold is found in mud attached to large rocks.
