    I have had extremely good luck on craigslist. I bought 4 pans, a letrap sluice, an angus mackirk sluice, and about 10 gold vials for a total of $80. One heck of a deal.

    Welcome Chris,
    The video layne shows above is an excellent video on panning and one I suggest to new folks. Gold fever prospecting is a pretty good place to get everything you need. Or you can go with the Garret kit or the GPAA kit you get when you join the GPAA. Or craigslist as stated. What you will need to start is two pans, one to use as a safety pan, a snuffer bottle, vile or two, classifier at least a 1/2" and if possible a 1/4" also. A #2 shovel, a couple of 5 gallon buckets, and if it is in the budget a sluice box. Some of this stuff is available around your house. You will eventually figure out what you want in your equipment. Sluice boxes come in a variety of styles and sizes so do a little research and see what you like and or can afford. Also read the threads in the forum about equipment. There is a wealth of knowledge here to learn from. Welcome again to the forum and a great hobby. Also I would suggest you find a club as close to you as possible to join. They usually don't cost too much and memberships are usually for the whole family. They will also be able to help shorten the learning curve for you.

    Good Luck!

    PS You will also want a pick od some sort.

    I just started with this kit and give it 5 solid stars. In fact, I just submitted a review on it. $50 bucks, can't beat it.

    I added a rock hammer, safety glasses and a trowel.
    Good luck!

    I just visited Denver and did a little panning for the first time along Clear Creek. 2 pans, shovel, classifier of some sort, vile, and snuffer. Had a blast and even found flakes. Didn't have to worry about being arrested like everywhere I know here in Md. I'm a beginner also so let me know if you find anywhere legal to do it here.

    My advice to Maryland. The people selling supplies got rich. If you are in it for a hobby. Post your finds. if you want to make money.....start a business selling supplies!

    I bought my sluice in the garden department at Home Depot. Six inch diameter flexible sewer pipe, (called a Poop-Tube sluice). Cost me ten dollars for 3 foot. I buy my classifier equipment at Wal Mart in the kitchen department. A deep plastic pan with a metal drainer insert runs about $8 bucks. That gets the big rocks out. I use a plastic spaghetti collander for the gravel, (another $5 dollars). The most expensive item in my inventory was an iron breaker bar, ($30 dollars) and of course a shovel, ($12 bucks). You should be able to pick up everything you need for about $75 dollars. Scoops, wisk broom, dust pan, tweezers and a magnifying glass.. get all that at the Dollar Tree Store for another $10 bucks. With all the money you save, you can afford a really nice Garrett gold pan, (Lol).

    hi,
    When I decided to gets some pans, I purchased Garrett's deluxe set. Which is what you need. has little bottles, snuffer bottle, magnifying glass and tweezers,a 1/2 inch classifier, large pan, and finish pan. also you will need a couple of 5 gallon buckets. Since this time I have built a homemade High banker from plan's from a
    book by Sam Radding. It really snowballs when you get ready for the field. I hope you do your research first, look for and know what a bargain is. Doing your own thing sometimes is the best advice and you will enjoy the treasure hunt. I get to use my high banker in two weeks and I am excited, good luck in your search.

    Howdy Chris819,

    These are great sites for gold panning, exploration, geological and archeological equipment. But before looking at these sites I suggest looking at the supporting vendors for treasurenet. You can find supporting vendors for treasurenet in the main forums page.

    Ehhh... I wouldn't advise going the Craigslist route. Yes, you can find quite a bit of what you need there, but you just can't guarantee quality.. and considering you're new to this, you definitely can't guarantee you're getting the best price for whatever it is you're buying. That said, buying gold prospecting equipment online is a great idea, if you're buying from a reputable seller. Buying online gives you a broader range of options (tools, brands, etc.), and most sites have deals/discounts more often than physical stores.
