Gold Prospecting Tip of the Week:
#1, Tie a few feet of fishing line to some small lead weights and affix balloons to the line... set it loose down the river and watch where the weights settle - that's a good place to start your hunt for gold.

#2, If you brush your teeth with a "Sonicare" battery operated toothbrush.....save the (2) magnets that drive the brush head when you replace it. These are very small but Super strong magnets....you can easily separate them from the brush head with a sideways twist. Use your new magnets to remove black sands from your gold.
Submitted by: Brewer Bellows Machine - Builds and offers bellows-type drywashers for sale.

#3, In & around hills of shale rock, carry a canvas bucket & long handled, digging tool. Scoop out clay or soil trapped between pieces of shale, place scooped out clay or shale into bucket & carry pail to water source & pan the bucket. Shale rock cliffs & steep hillsides act as a natural sluice box & trap gold over the years as rain water wears down the hills. Submitted by B. Babson Duvall, WA.

Gold Panning Kit



NEW! Customize your gold panning kit below.

Gold Panning kit includes "Everything but the River!" Pictures not to scale.

Our Beginner's Gold Panning Kit includes the following 14 items:

~~ (1) gold panning booklet with easy to follow directions on how to pan for gold.

~~ (1) 14 inch black plastic gold pan

~~ (1) 10 1/2 inch black plastic light weight gold pan - ideal for cleaning up your panning concentrates. Even small flakes show nicely against the dark color.

~~ (1) 1/2 OR 1/4 inch classifier sieve screen - use to separate out larger waste gravel and rocks to make your panning and sluicing much easier and more efficient.

~~ (1) suction tweezer pipette for easy removal of even fine flour gold

~~ (1) sucker snuffer bottle for removing gold flakes from your pan

~~ (1) 10 to 16 inch iron pry bar / crevice tool - great for digging into and around the bedrock cracks for gold! (Other crevice tool sizes can be ordered below).

~~ (1 set of two) TWO extra long 10 inch stainless steel tweezers (one angled one straight tipped). Great for picking out those nuggets from your sluice and pan - even for crevicing in those tougher to reach bedrock cracks.

~~ (1) Illuminated 7X MAGNIFYING Jeweler’s Loupe to marvel at gold's beauty up close and help to identify even the smallest flecks in your pans.

~~ (1) Treasure Scoop (our choice of color) This ABS plastic tool is rugged enough for digging and because it is non metallic you can pass material containing a target over your metal detector coil for quick identification and recovery. Treasure Scoop is strong and durable yet very lightweight.

~~ (2) full ounce Gold Vials to hold your new gold finds (gold not included). Tip: add water to magnify your gold.

~~ (1) BEAUTIFUL Pewter Gold Panner Key Chain - a fun prospecting gift to give or keep! Features a pewter raised relief depiction of an old prospector panning for gold. Very detailed and high quality laser cut relief. (IF OUT OF STOCK, WE MAY SUBSTITUTE OUR 11 IN 1 SURVIVAL TOOL.)

ADDITIONAL ADD ON ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE DROP DOWN MENU ABOVE TOO!

GOLD PANNING TIP: Check and clean out all those bedrock cracks, nooks and crannies for the best gold bearing material. Nuggets hide deep! Don't forget to check moss and tree root areas too - fine gold gets stuck in there often so rinse these roots off in your gold pan. Don't forget, gold is super heavy. It will sink down in the gravel and sand until something stops it. Because of this it is usually not found directly at the surface. You may need to dig down to find it (sometimes all the way down to bedrock. Look for tell tale signs of gold, like black sand concentrations, as these darker sands are usually heavier than the lighter blonde sands and often deposit in areas where gold will too.

Add some extra goodies to your gold panning kit below - use our pull down option bar next to the order button.

Gold panning kits ship by ups OR US Priority mail. Limited quantities - new stock arrives weekly.

Gold Pan - 10 or 14 inch Black Gold PansGold Pan - 10 or 14 inch Black Gold PansVery affordable black plastic gold pans - choice of 10 or 14 inches (14" pan is $3 additional). Black gold pans are great for cleaning up fine gold from your heavy black sands.

Also see our complete gold panning and sluice kits!

Gold Panning Tip: the 10" pan is a smaller gold pan so don't overload it. Easy does it and you should be able to recover your smallest gold quite easily. For easier panning consider pre-screening the larger material down to a smaller size with a kitchen strainer or one of our classifiers. Try the 14" gold pan size to process more material quickly. Use the 10 inch pan for the final cleanup stage.

Choose from either the 12" pan or the larger 14" Keene pan. Use the drop down menu to make your selection



Pan gold three times as fast as you would with a conventional gold pan! These time proven 12 and 14 inch gold pans have three surfaces that perform specialized tasks:

1. The coarse riffled area is used to "rough out" the majority of panning material.

2. The textured area is then used to pan down to mostly black sand.

3. The "smooth surface" is used at the end to remove gold from black sand until only the gold remains. Don't forget to grab a snuffer bottle too.

Keene Super Gold Pans are available in 12 or 14 inches diameter, (choose size below) are green in color for good visual contrast with black sands and fine gold particles and comes with a lifetime Keene engineering mfg. guarantee.

Regardless of whether you are a new gold prospector or a pro, the Keene gold pan is still the most indispensable companion you can have. It is one of the first tools used in locating gold and is one of the last used, even in commercial mining to check the value of ore being processed. The Gold Pan is used wherever gold occurs in approximately 75% of all the countries in the world.

We use this gold pan ourselves and recommend it highly.

Keene mining equipment super gold pans - reliable and affordable.

Pans are in short supply and subject to back order. If sold out we will substitute for the similar high quality Proline 14" gold pan.

Gold Fact: Did You Know ???
--- Sadly almost all gold nuggets found prior to 1990 have been melted down. At the time of the gold rush, even the largest nuggets were melted down, formed into bars or coins and assayed to determine their gold value so that payment for goods and services could be easily obtained. The Great Depression and the raw gold price spikes during the 1980's saw many of the best surviving nuggets held by state governments, museums and private collectors being melted down for cash. What a terrible loss! Only very recently has appreciation of geological rarity, uniqueness and nostalgia replaced the greed and fear that determined the fate of placer and lode nuggets in the past.

Gold Nugget Pricing: natural gold nuggets typically sell for a premium price over the spot gold price because they are valued similarly to gem stones and are much more rare than fine gold dust. Much of the gold bullion traded on the stock market is made from refined and melted down gold dust to form coins; 95-98% of the world's native gold is actually in the form of gold dust and not gold nuggets.


Feel free to contact us at: info@goldfeverprospecting.com with any special gold-nugget requests or other questions related to prospecting. Gold prices are subject to change without notice. Sale price is contingent on availability and recent spot market action. Please see our gold charts section to follow the price of gold over time.

Gold Panning Tip: always classify your material according to size before panning. Pan the smaller material in one batch and then repeat for the larger material and look for bigger gold chunks and nuggets. Gold, while very heavy, may still be displaced by larger rocks and gravel so keep your material as close to the size of the gold for your best chance of recovery.

Have no fear fellow prospectors the Gold-Mag is here! Magnets are great for removing black sand from concentrates but there is always the fear of loosing gold in the process. Why? We all know that gold is non-magnetic however a powerful magnet can trap the gold in the black sand as it's being extracted from the concentrates. Don't blame the magnet, it's the process that needs work. You need a powerful magnet like this one (16 pounder) but you also need a unique and easy process that is fast and thorough. With the Gold-Mag System (see video) you'll see just how easy it is to get all the gold and virtually eliminate any doubt about black sand removal using a magnet. The process works wet or dry and the tubs stack neatly with the magnet inside so you always have Gold-Mag when you need it.

Also see our sand pan bowls as well (view below). These sand pans are quite a bit larger than the trays and very useful for a variety of things around the house and garage beyond holding your concentrates.

ROCK TUMBLING TIPS

Best rocks to tumble?

Some types of rocks do not tumble as well as others. The best rocks for tumbling should be as solid as possible, have a somewhat smooth texture, and be free from large cracks. Jasper, Agate, quartz, and obsidian rocks are usually excellent choices for rock tumbling and will produce good results.

What can you do with your polished tumbled rocks?

Many people make neat jewelry items with their new tumbled stones. Some easy to make items from tumbled stones include: earrings, key-chains, rings and tie-tacks. Tumbled stones also have many decorative uses. Try placing some in your potted plants, or perhaps craft one of a kind refrigerator magnets. Putting a bunch around a place setting or candle can make an otherwise boring item look great. Don't forget the endless gift possibilities too.

Clay Gone - Gold Panning AidClay Gone - Gold Panning Aid"CLAY GONE" GOLD PANNING AID - CAUSES CLAY AND SUSPENDED MATERIALS TO DROP FROM WATER IN SECONDS

8 Ounce Bottle of Clay Gone

Did you know gold can float? Yes it's heavy but fine pieces of gold can actually float on top of the water in your panning tub. This is due to the surface tension of the water itself. With clay gone you don't have to lose this gold anymore. Recover your gold much easier with clay gone. Use it to help drop that heavy silt and mud out of the water - great in desert applications where clean water is in very short supply.

Ideal for use in gold panning tubs, gold jigs, gold wheels, recirculating systems and other fine gold recovery equipment.

This product is a must for stretching the usability of your water - especially valuable in arid areas like the desert. It's compatible with soaps and other surface tension breaking additives like jet-dry. Use 1 tablespoon of clay-gone per 10 gallons of water. Bottle contains 8 ounces. A little goes a very long way. Highly concentrated.
