    Question on buying "pay dirt"

    I was at the WA gold show a few weeks ago and saw plenty of people selling bags of pay dirt. Now I'm not a stranger to buying pay dirt, but it was at an Alaskan gold mine several years ago. $10 bucks a bag, and what I found in today's dollars would have been $50+ but that was, as I said, years ago. Do any of you buy these bags of dirt, and if so, are they worth it, or are they just to have something to do when it's storming outside and you've got the itch to pan something? Next question is, if you do buy it, any recommendations?

    Welcome. I do buy some. I have three dealers I like. I do it for fun, you'll never get your money back on these things.

    I see it as a way to blow money and time. Nothing wrong with it if its what you like to do.

    The best paydirt I've ever found is from this guy running a rock shop on the way to Mariposa along Highway 140. He's selling bags of paydirt for $10 each that have at least 0.24 grams of gold on it. If any of you ever pass on the way, check it out. He's just getting the gold from the creek behind his shop.
