    Give me a holler if you do Harleyman. One of the GPAA claims is next to one of mine. I'm curious was it the Husker that suposedly is no longer a GPAA claim. That is still a claim. It is a private claim leased to the GPAA. Anyway give a yell if your headed up here.

    Good Luck!!

    Bird shot is OK for basic panning, but is much too uniform and doesn't simulate the variability in size and texture of actual gold. Also, the density is different.

    I like to save off samples from various claims to experiment with different classification and recovery methods. It is an interesting challenge to work with the abundant flour gold that is available in most of the Colorado river claims.

    It's difficult to simulate the actual mix from a claim, sand, gravel, clay, magnetite, hematite and other minerals.

    I agree completely. I still contend buying paydirt however, is no win venture for the buyer financially. If you are buying adventure great, but never think you will MAKE money on a bag of paydirt...

    I am new to "panning", and living in Pennsylvania, it's difficult to start off finding a gold bearing area, let alone finding the good stuff. I buy paydirt mostly as an opportunity to practice before I invest in actually searching for a good place to dig. I've even dried the dirt out, and re-hid the flakes I found and panned them out again. After work its a good way to unwind, have a few beers and relax with the guarantee you'll find something. I don't buy any with the intent on getting rich... I'm not that naive. But nonetheless, it is a business they're in, and they're the ones making the money, not me. If you go into it with that mentality, you really can't lose...

    I have bought, and am buying paydirt right now. Although I know places around Murphys, CA and Stanton, AZ that will ALWAYS give up color, I buy paydirt to spread my money around. It's a form of entertainment. Many guys and gals in PA... or Indiana, can't put together the price of a nice adventure in the gold belt. So a few bags of dirt becomes that adventure. Not the real thing, but a few hours..... If I banked all the money I spent on detectors, sluices, pans and such, I would be rich.... but not happy. Ok, I'll get down off the soapbox for now... and gather up about 2 dozen diggers for a "group family" picture! Update: My new friend Tokameel has found some coins with his new detector! WOOHOO!! Way to go, Mike! TTC

    I've bought pay dirt time to time and love to see the smiles when they are given along with a pan, vile, and sucker bottle to someone who's never done any prospecting before. Almost guarenteed instant gold fever and a new voice to our cause. I've always felt that I've got more than my moneys worth, so It's all in how you look at it. Doug.

    I maintain you can't learn to pan without gold in the pan. Running a lot of dirt without being rewarded is boring. I've ordered bags
    from Fairbanks and the thrill of seeing pickers of all shapes is great fun. And I get every speck without the dross to fill my bottles,
    using the sucker tubes. I have not ordered since the price went up over 1K.

    Terry, I know I paid dearly but I don't get to go to Arizona like I used to. Plus the spot we used to work is closed off now.

    I got my son hooked on prospecting buying those bags. Have been out a few times sluicing and the first person in my family to want to go. You got it my son. Have not found much more than black sand and micro flakes. But we still have those nice flakes from the bags too keep us going.

    Here's how I look at it. God bless those who can find the gold and sell it in what ever container they choose to those who want to buy it. And god bless those who are happy buying it. as for me, it's much more the time element I value. Say gas for the trip 75.00, food, 50 bucks and time 2 days spent. The look on my four grand kids faces when they have flakes in thier pans, well, it's more than priceless. It's a feeling and I dont mean gold fever. In a sense, gold has very little to do with it. You all know where I am going, so as long as two parties are happy with thier individual arrangement, so be it. Thats what makes the world go around. Just remember, when dollars are passed from one hand to another, one party is making a profit. Do the math. Just my 2 cents.

    started buying bags when AU was worth 895 then for a 90.00 bag plus shipping almost always produced 65.00$ worth nice profit for the seller and a good investment for me at least the entertainment lately the bags produce 60.00$ worth, for 120.00$ always a chance to win a big one on the specials.
